Interview with Ed Vaughn
QUESTION 17
SAM POLLARD:

Give us that story again on Warren Street with the hardware store.

ED VAUGHN:

Well, during the riots, I happened to be on Warren Avenue, West Warren, and a hardware store was being looted by a lot of people, apparently people who lived in that community, and they were just hauling all kinds of things out of the store. And a carload of brothers rolled up, and I, I thought I knew all the revolutionaries in town, but I did not know who these brothers were, and they drove up and they asked everyone had they gotten enough and did they need anything else? And people said, finally said no after they had gotten what they wanted. And so these brothers said, "Fine," and so they got everybody out of the store, and they fire-bombed it and they left, they didn't take anything themselves**.

SAM POLLARD:

OK, cut.
