Brian Nichols Trial Week 3 - Nat Turner Reincarnated

To those that don't know, Nichols,who was a computer engineer for UPS at the time, was falsely convicted of rape and went on a rage against the corrupt system when they took his freedom away
(below is what was shown to the jury today)

Brian Nichols Confession

Brian Nichols was at war with the United States government.

Nichols said he was provoked to start the war by a “multitude of different things,” including the conditions in the Fulton County jail, and the prison system of Georgia where “prisoners are required to work for free… you really have no choice other than to work… it parallels significantly the treatment of slaves.”

He said: “I felt as though I was a slave with them. As a soldier, I don’t feel like I committed any war crimes. There was no collateral damage.

He said he killed Barnes because “at the time I thought of Judge Barnes as the Master. The slave master.”

Nichols said he shot and killed federal agent David Wilhelm later that night at the Buckhead home where Wilhelm was doing tile work in a bathroom, because Wilhelm identified himself as a treasury agent.
