Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:

Harold Taylor who lives in Panama City was arrested in Florida on Jan. 23, 2007, on charges related to the 1971 killing of a San Francisco police officer. He, along with seven other former members of the Black Panther Party and supporters, was arrested in cities across the nation related to this crime. Similar charges were brought against Taylor and two other men in 1973 but were thrown out after evidence revealed that the men were forced to confess after undergoing several days of intense torture by New Orleans police. According to the freethesf8.org Web site the men were exposed to "electric shock, cattle prods, beatings, sensory deprivation, plastic bags and hot, wet blankets for asphyxiation."

He’ll be the speaker at the African Liberation Day Celebration next Tuesday evening at the Good Luck Café in Ybor City…
