Interview with Gov. George C. Wallace
QUESTION 14
INTERVIEWER:

AND I'M WONDERING WHAT INCIDENT DURING THOSE DEMONSTRATIONS CAUSED YOU TO GET INVOLVED IN IT AT ALL.

Gov. George C. Wallace:

Well, I was not involved in those, except we finally sent state troopers there, but it was to maintain order, and uh, the church uh, bomb was uh, I said, the man uh who uh, people who did that ought to burn the bottom of the electric chair out. It really, it really shook me and the people of Alabama, for somebody to have done what they did in that regard. Because uh, that was something nobody accepted, and that was my statement at the time, that uh, who is responsible for this ought to burn the bottom out of the electric chair in this state.
