Interview with Judge Richard E. Arnason (Updated over a year ago)
KPIX Eyewitness News report from May 13th 1971 by Rollin Post in Martinez (Contra Costa County, CA) featuring an interview with Judge Richard E. Arnason, who has just been chosen to preside over the Angela Davis trial. When asked by Post to describe himself, Arnason replies that: "Self analysis has never been very productive for anybody and I'm not going to do it now." He is eager to begin his work on this trial, in fact: "I always have looked forward, every day I hit the courthouse steps. And no matter what the case is, I've never had a case that I didn't like."
