Manhunt The Final Verdict A Wrong Righted

Transcripts available in the following languages:

I assumed that, that worst was gonna come before me, and I knew I wouldn't be a free man. They're not gonna let me have that, make it that easy for me, because, you know, I was even classified as an "enemy alien" by the draft card. And so I knew that as soon as they realized that I'm there, free, that they were gonna catch me.

I*: Were you afraid of being arrested?

No, I wasn't, because I didn't feel that I was, I did anything wrong. And if anybody did wrong, it was the law. Because I figured it was unconstitutional what they were doing.

* "I" indicates an interviewer (Lorraine Bannai).
