Bernie Sanders 1963 Arrest Video Surfaces

3

Video has surfaced showing a young Bernie Sanders being arrested back in 1963 during a civil rights protest.

The video shows a young man being arrested at a South Side protest.

The Democratic presidential hopeful’s campaign has confirmed that it is indeed Sanders, supporting Bernie’s narrative about his civil rights activism.

The Vermont senator was then a 21-year-old University of Chicago student. The video shows him being shlepped by Chicago police toward a police wagon.

Tad Devine, a senior adviser to the campaign, told the Chicago Tribune that Sanders looked at a digital image of a photo from the same incident that appears on the video. ” “Bernie identified it himself,” he told the Tribune. He actually has his student ID from the University of Chicago in his wallet — and he said, ‘Yes, that indeed is (me).'”

A January 1964 Tribune story on the court cases of those who had been arrested in August identified a Bernard Sanders.
