Vincent Arias, who was shot by police in 2004 and then faced life in prison for the charge of "attempted murder on a police officer," beat the case in 2006 after firing his lawyers and going pro-per. In our original 2008 interview, which took place 2 years after he was released from prison, Arias recounts how he was shot by police in his car, the subsequent felonies he was charged with, and how a jury acquitted him of all charges.
In our latest interview, Arias, who was born and raised in East Los Angeles, gives his thoughts on the modern police state and how it feels to be a free man seven years later. He also recounts an interesting encounter with a priest who testified on his behalf in a 1975 police brutality case.
Below is the original 2008 interview and photos of Vincent's car after the police shot it up, with him in it. I should note that my youtube channel has nearly six million views, but this 2008 video interview, with only 4,000 views, is still my absolute favorite.
