David Hilliard in Court
KPIX Eyewitness News report from December 23rd 1969 featuring interviews with Black Panther Party lawyer Charles Garry and Panthers Chief of Staff David Hilliard, outside a courtroom. Garry explains that Hilliard earlier refused to plead guilty to charges and accept a fine of $25, so the court has just sentenced him to 180 days in jail. Garry's motion for a new trial has been denied, so they are filing an appeal. Hilliard declares that: "This is another case of personal persecution of the Black Panther Party. Fascism was displayed in the court. So it's obvious that the courtrooms are not symbols of justice; they are railroad stations."
