Interview with Colonel Floyd Mann
QUESTION 40
INTERVIEWER:

WHY DON'T YOU UH, SAY ON CAMERA WHAT THE COMMITMENT WAS SO, BECAUSE THEY WON'T, THE AUDIENCE WON'T HEAR WHEN YOU SAY THIS.

Col. Floyd Mann:

Well, at that point in time, I think the Attorney General was uh, wanting to get Governor Patterson publicly committed to guaranteeing the safety of these people throughout Alabama and politically a speaking I felt that Governor Patterson did not want to make a public commitment.
