Alert: Many of those shown being arrested at the end of this video, had there charges dismissed.
"Fifteen of the 27 activists arrested at the White House on April 10 (dubbed the "White House 15") decided to take the battle to the courts. Faced with this challenge, the government added a second charge - and offered to accept payment in lieu of trial - in order to intimidate the activists. We were not intimidated, we were ready to face the charges and most importantly, put the SOA on trial once more. The prosecution, sensing defeat, had no choice but to claim that it wasn't prepared to make the charges stick, and the case was dismissed by Judge Frederick Sullivan." (from
