Return to RNC: Police tortured a protester

See the Video

Arrested during Day 1 of the RNC, Elliot Hughes, while under the care of the Ramsey County Sheriff's Department, was starved, beaten unconscious, hooded and gagged, and ultimately denied medical treatment.

In this video shot last night, hear Elliot's full testimony before a special meeting of St. Paul's council members, on Wednesday September 24th, 2008.

Be warned. What Elliot has to report happened to him tells a disturbing story of unwarranted and unjustifiable police violence.

By the end of his testimony, you'll see how St. Paul provided us with echoes of Abu Ghraib during the RNC.

Bob Fletcher (right) is responsible for far more than Elliot Hughes' torture. He personally undertook many out-of-jurisdiction actions before, during, and after the RNC--including harassment of videographers who have remained in town to finish a documentary on the RNC protests.
