MnIndy video: RNC protesters show and tell of injuries from cops By Chris Steller 9/9/08 8:38 AM
With city officials in St. Paul and Minneapolis alternately fanning and smothering the sparks of independent RNC policing investigations, this Minnesota Independent video offers a preview in black and blue of what sure-to-come civil lawsuits will bring to light about police misconduct during the Republican National Convention.
In the video, six protesters — Mick Kelly, Deborah Hollingsworth, Richard Hernandez, Wendy Binion, Jason Brian Johnson and Elliot Hughes — show their bruises, cuts and bandaged limbs and tell the stories of how they received their injuries at the hands of law enforcement.
The protesters appeared at a press conference held by the Coldsnap Legal Collective outside the St. Paul City Hall/Ramsey County Courthouse building after last week’s convention.
