Tower Mill Motel

Footage of the third demonstration at the Tower Mill Motel on Saturday 24th July 1971. About a thousand protesters gathered at the Tower Mill that evening. Police Commissioner Ray Whitrod was there to command his forces. Whitrod ordered that the roadway be kept clear, but when the lines of police moved forward to clear the street, they broke ranks and charged the demonstrators once again (as they had done two nighs before). Effectively another police riot broke out under the cover of darkness. More injuries, some serious. 9 arrests (6' 32").
