Interview with Judge John Minor Wisdom
QUESTION 6
INTERVIEWER:

WE'RE GETTING RIGHT UP TO THAT VERY SOON. WE'RE GETTING TO THOSE — TO THAT TOPIC SPECIFICALLY, SOON. JUST ONE MORE THOUGHT ON THIS, WHICH IS, YOU'RE SAYING THERE WASN'T MUCH RESISTANCE IN NEW ORLEANS. BUT PLACES LIKE VIRGINIA, THERE WAS AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF RESISTANCE.

Judge John Minor Wisdom:

Well, you — Virginia is — there are several Virginias, just as there are several different Louisianas. In small Virginia towns, in southern Virginia, you get one reaction. But you could get quite a different reaction as you go towards Washington, for example. But the violence exceeded, I think, my expectations.
