His arrest came just days after he was lauded in an article in Philadelphia Magazine for his activism. U.S. Attorney William M.

Must be more of those pesky white supremacist terrorist groups. Boy the FBI was sure right about them.
social studies teacher..figures...
Just practicing some of that non-violent violence... :-)

All businesses advertising in the that rag need to be called out, now, and until they repudiate the magazine.
Maybe the Commonwealth will revoke his teaching license.
Oh, yeah. Right.
Unintentionally funny: the Inquirer describes the events where the alleged crimes took place as heated demonstrations. Thats a new one. Im keeping it.
My social studies teacher was great and had a reputation for strictness and rigor.
Of course that was back in the mid-late 1960s.
Yeah “heated demonstrations” — literally heated from the fires they started; burning cop cars and churches .. how peaceful & tolerant!
