QUESTION 7
INTERVIEWER:

OK, let's start off by telling me about President Carter's car.

MAURICE FERRE:

Well, you know, ah, obviously it's a shocking thing to see a president treated that way, but in the minds of those teenagers that were doing that, I don't think they disting- they, they would distinguish between the president and the, ah, and the mayor or anybody else. I, you know, it was a statement that was being made and, and the statement was, ah, this is unfair, s- something, something's not right. And, ah, it was, it's a form of protest. Ah, thank God the president was not hurt, but, ah, he, he got the message. And the message was very clear.
