Police and FBI agents discovered clothing and other articles that indicated the SLA members lived in the apartment less than a week ago. Police found the keys to a that have emerged out of these discussions as honestly and clearly as I can. “We seek security and peace and not the imposition of the views of any party on any other party,’’ Kissinger said, adding that his mission Larry Tanner is aimed at “promoting peace Fred L.

Police Sgt. William Kearny identified those freed Thursday night as Thomas Manney, 31, a star football player at San Francisco State university in the early 1960s; Clarence Jamerson, 37; Dwight Stallings, 28; and Edgar Burton, 22. They had been booked for investigation of conspiracy to commit murder. Further Procedures Kearny said the four were released because it became evident “during the course of the investigation that no further procedures against them are feasible at this time.” He said Chief of Inspectors Charles Barca planned a news conference on the matter Friday.
