The Attica prison Protest and Massacre

Attica: A Political Broadcast (November 8, 2011)
Some very telling dialog here.

On Sept. 13, 1971, New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller ordered armed state troopers to raid the prison in Attica, New York, ending a prison uprising to protest inhumane conditions at the facility. Troopers then indiscriminately shot over 2,000 rounds of ammunition, killing 29 prisoners and 10 guards. Recently released audio recordings provide a glimpse into the bizarre savage rituals of US federal and local rulers coming together.

"I think the combination of age and a greater coming together is responsible for the speed of the passing time."
--Sam Melville, from a letter written shortly before he was killed by troopers in Attica
