Committal Hearing - Day 3

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

Day 3 and the hole these guys have doug gets deeper. Calls to friends just after the attack. Racist slurs hurled at campers just before the attack. Heartbreaking to hear on the news tonight that the brother of one of the accused had to testify against him as he had called his brother shortly after the attack. Heartwarming to hear of the courage of the campers in testifying about the attack on them. When you are living in a creek bed, you generally are not operating within the power structures of society. Testifying in court is a big deal for most people, let alone those who are not usually part of 'the system'.

The hearing continues.
