The Saga of Jack Smith and His Arrest on the Brooklyn Bridge


By BillyClub - Posted on 08 October 2011

On Oct. 7, 2011, I caught up with a Peace & Justice activist, Jack Smith, in downtown Washington, DC. He's also a lawyer from Seattle, WA. Mr. Smith, as I conducted the interview, was marching back on Pennsylvania Avenue to the Freedom Plaza, with his fellow activists. He had just left a rally, which had protested the use of lethal drones, aka "Assassin Drones," by the Obama & Biden administration. He related his saga of being subjected to an arbitrary arrest, on Oct. 1, 2011, by New York cops on the Brooklyn Bridge. He was later detained by the police under very harsh conditions. Mr. Smith, according to his account, was a participant in the Occupy Wall Street action.
