Interview with Arthur Eve
QUESTION 13
INTERVIEWER:

On the issue of amnesty--

ARTHUR EVE:

Yeah, amnesty was something that everybody wanted, ah, certainly they were concerned about reprisals based on the experience that had happened at the Tombs and at Albion State Prison where I went when a number of the men were locked up. They didn't want this added onto their time, and so forth, so amnesty was a major, major, major consideration, and in the course of negotiations, the state did not agree to give amnesty. I think we were, they were in the, in the process of trying to say we'll take each case as, as, you know, as it went. But, ah, I think, though, that if we could have resolved it in a peaceful manner that there would have been a serious consideration given on not charging anyone with crime and maybe narrowing it down to very, very few. As the case ended up being, ah, go ahead.

INTERVIEWER:

OK, let's cut for a second.
