This recording begins with the reporter narrating the scene at San Quentin prison, such as bodies being carried out and the reporters undergoing body searches before entering. The majority of the recording is Associate Warden James Park's statement to the press concerning the death of George Jackson, and Parks answering questions from reporters. When asked for his personal response to the event, Park asserts "a lot of bull____ talk about revolution by dilettante revolutionaries outside...does a great deal of harm". Contains sensitive language.
