Interview with Herb Boyd
QUESTION 44
SAM POLLARD:

Tell me about when the snipers came in what did the federal troops or the National Guards what did they do?

HERB BOYD:

Well in the evenings when there were reports of a rumors that there were sniping the neighborhood then the first thing you would hear is like this ominous sound in the air of helicopters coming in. Like a alien force invading the neighborhood. Spotlights would come out so they could light up the whole area so they could light up the whole area so they could isolate that sniper. Then the ground forces would move in and set up so and kind of cordon off the neighborhood so they could surround the whole building. So the copters you know hovering over the spotlights coming down, the troops on the ground it was a very ominous kind of feeling in the community at that time.
