Interview with Herb Boyd
QUESTION 40
SAM POLLARD:

Tell me the story again about driving down the street that night and then you saw a National Guard?

HERB BOYD:

It was like the Monday evening--

HERB BOYD:

It was Monday evening when I was driving around the community where I lived went over on Lasalle Boulevard and we were driving up the street there and coming directly at us was a whole convoy of troops with some tanks up front. I say that's a sign for us to turn around. We turned around and went back up the other street. In about fifteen, twenty seconds later we heard these large, loud reports coming from like fifty millimeter machine guns. You know having been in the service I can recognize that sound. So we drove around the block came all the way down Lynwood come up the street and then in back of this convoy now and when we drove up the street we could see what we left behind was like tank tracks going across the lawns and the whole--this mansion was just pock marked with bullet holes where they had just indiscriminately sprayed the whole building there. They attempted demolished the whole mansion.

SAM POLLARD:

OK, Herb. I want you to do it again--
