Tell me about your recruitment to the FBI.
OK, am I ready now?
Well, simply, I stole a car and took it across the state line. The FBI had a case on me. They could either prosecute me and put me in jail or decline to prosecute because I assisted them in one of their investigations. I think I understood that. So the day he called and asked me to join the Black Panther Party, I understood what my role was to be, and that's what I did. Was that good enough?
Yeah, except you didn't say Mitchell. Will you try it one more time?
OK, it's simple. I stole a car and went across the state line, which violated federal law. Mitchell, an agent from the FBI had a case on me. He had a choice of either prosecuting me and sending me to jail or declining to prosecute as a result of me aiding him in another case. And I decided to take the latter. When he asked me to join the Black Panther Party, I did so and I understood what my role was to be.
We didn't quite catch it I think, but, I mean--
we can do it again.
Well, we can do it again.
