Interview with John Nichols

Can you tell me what ?


Well, I didn't agree with all of it. I think that any commission that attempts to deal with a, with a, with a problem that broad is bound to get some bias on both sides of the fence. I think that many people tend to recognize that the investigations that take place immediately after a traumatic action like that are going to elicit comments from both sides of the fence that may be more emotional than they are factual. What I'm saying is that a year after the riot, when people stopped and sorted things out, they may have had a different feeling about some of the root causes or a different feeling about what actually occurred than did, than they did under the heat and, and temper--and tenor of the moment.
