Sacco and Vanzetti: The other famous Boston frame up?

 Kudos to BrassCheckTV for surfacing this video. It’s an important part of America’s history, studied widely in education, and a cautionary tale about the federal government’s penchant for manufacturing radicals.

As part of a federal campaign against foreign born radicals (i.e. people who had political opinions), the crime was pinned on two tradesmen who also happened to have political opinions.

In those days, people could smell a frame up 

Now, with 24/7 “they are guilty and here’s why” TV, it’s unlikely the remaining brother is going to get public support. In the old days, people were more in touch with reality


Note: Back then it took only 500 head-busting Boston police to deal with a multi-ten thousand person “mob”. Today it takes 10,000 to not find one kid. Now that’s inflation!
