"Traffic, on the otherhand, floods

vestigation without naming a spe-
cific crime. "All the government
has to say is "let's investigate the
movement" and they call in all
the radical leaders for examina-
tion," Tigar says. "It's not an in-
vestigation, it's a witchhunt."
Calling upon the audience to in-
volve themselves in working to
change the grand jury system, Ti-
gar said the jury system "is being
drained of democratic content in
order to serve those people in
power-its independence needs to
be insured."
Tiger is currently defending Da-
vis on a murder charge. Davis al-
legedly purchased four guns used
in a California courthouse shoot-
out that resulted in the deaths of
four persons a year ago. Under
California law an accomplice to a
crime is charged with the same
offense as the person committing
the crime.
Because of Davis's advocacy of
revolutionary tactics many people
contend she is being tried on
" trumped-up charges.
