KPFT station manager, plus a member of staff and a volunteer
all assault protestors, file false charges, then lose!
Edwin Johnston. (Houston PNB meeting, early March 2001)
On March 23, 2001, KPFT general manager Garland Ganter assaulted Edwin Johnston
at a protest at KPFT in Houston. Johnston was also assaulted by a KPFT volunteer.
Ganter's wife, Molly O'Brien, who at the time was on KPFT staff, assaulted protestor
Sheila Harris. Both Ganter and O'Brien gave false reports to police and Johnston
was arrested and jailed on two counts of assault.
Johnston is very angry about this, to say the least.
