Interview with Daisy Nunley
QUESTION 16
SHEILA C. BERNARD:

OK, if you could tell me about the street lights

DAISY NUNLEY:

Well, ah, I know what it's like to, to, to live under martial law, and I can imagine what it would be like to live in a country under martial law because at that particular time during the riot the city of Detroit was under martial law--the soldiers rode down the street in jeeps and, ah, one particular, ah, night they came down, ah, I imagine they didn't want to be, ah, targets--and they just came down the street and they shot out the street lights, they shot out all the street lights on the block so it would be dark, there was no street lights during the riot, they shot the ones out on our block so that they, I guess they didn't want to be made a target of at night.
