Interview with Rev. Andrew Young
QUESTION 17
INTERVIEWER:

COLONEL AL LINGO OF THE ALABAMA?

Rev. Andrew Young:

I never really knew Colonel Al Lingo, um, by his work, he had to be very close to Jim Clark. I mean there was absolutely no reason for anybody to mob people, ah, you know, on television cameras, on a Sunday afternoon, as he did on that Edmund Pettus Bridge. I mean here were people who were not throwing rocks, they were not ah, I mean. they were on their knees for all practical purposes. They were not in any way hostile, not even not even verbally antagonistic, ah, and yet, he saw fit to teargas them and ride horses in their midst and beat them. You've got to be some kind of maniac to do that.
