Judi Bari's Nails
Judi Bar, like Jesus, crucified by establishment nails.
(The information below is taken from William Bernhardt,
and internet sites.
When CIA black ops specialists were hired by a cabal of
logging companies to attack environmental groups such as Earth
First, the cabal
created a nail bomb which sent hundreds of nails at high
velocity into Judy Bari, environmental activist, in 1990. She was
crippled. The FBI, servant of the Bush old growth logging regime,
put out the disinformation that she had done it to herself.
The bomb also injured fellow activist Darryl Cherney. Bari died in 1997 of cancer, but her federal lawsuit against the FBI and Oakland, California police resulted in a 2002 jury verdict awarding her estate and Darryl Cherney a total of $4.4 million.
Bari's supporters believe there is evidence the FBI helped plan the bombing, There has never been a government investigation into this claim. Special Agent Richard W. Held, who supervised the Bari case for the FBI, was dismissed from the lawsuit in early 1997.)
