Interview with Herb Boyd

Lets go back, when did you think that the rebellion had ended?


OK, I thought it was all over by Wednesday of that week, ah, clearly with the presence of a number of national guardsmen and police force now was like reinforced you might say in the community, the looting was over, ah the curfew was in effect. So the motion in the street that had been cooled out. So that's when I had a feeling that everything was all over, then it was time to maybe direct all of our energies kind of the frustration and anger to some very positive concerns. It was like foolish and ridiculous to go out there think that we could go out and do anything with that kind of armed presence, that kind of garrison, that kind of occupation in our community.
