CHP OFFICER JAMES PURSELL - INTERVIEW

Here is a raw, uncut, interview of CHP Officer James Pursell.  He is the CHP Officer involved in the final arrest of the Manson Family at Barker Ranch in October, 1969.

I have no information on who conducted the interview or when, but I'm guessing about 1995 from a date at the beginning of the tape.  It appears it was done in Bishop, California by something he stated during the interview.

As I said, this is raw and uncut footage - the first 18 minutes are photographs of the raid....you can skip forward to 18:19 to watch the actual interview.  Unfortunately it cuts off at 54 minutes, just before the raid-- that's all there is...but all in all I found it interesting.....enjoy...
