wept for those killed in a terrible

burning many others. Two full-scale

I use the term 'boomeraig' figura-
tively and its meaning, according
to the New Elizabethan Reference Dic-
tionary, is "action, speech or argu-

makes it," I ad not afraid to mentfan
names; people in public affairs,paid
from public funds, should have their
names called, aid even if they quit-
office they are part of history, which
is meaningless if names are not given,
Names of people connected with crime
are studiously and sophistically wita-
held; wrong deeds, wrong speech,wrong
thinking rebound and often with
tragic effect.

The lawyer writes of granting Trotter
"a free pardon in the interim period
during which ALL efforts should be
geared towards bringing LEGITIMATE
pressure to bear on our representatYez

right to truth and justice",
2) the immediate suspension of all
Police Officers involved (those named
