OCT 21, 2013 – Graham Nash talked music and politics with FOX411 recently, and he talked about how his father went to jail for a year over an incident where someone hid a $30 camera at his house, so he developed a "sense of unfairness." Nash told FOX411, "I always felt the justice system was buyable. Rich people don't go to jail, it's always the poor people." With JPMorgan trashing our economy and stealing money from people's retirement accounts and taxpayers and only paying a fine and nobody going to jail, it seems he is on to something.
Nash talked about the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, and how he got a call from a friend telling him they needed defense money for people who disturbed the convention, and asked him to come out and sing. Nash said, "When I heard what happened to Bobby Seale, where they bound him and chained him and gagged him and called it a fair trial. When you put Bradley Manning into a room with bright lights for 24 hours a day and strip him naked and humiliate him for a thousand days before his trial, that's not fair to me."
