BUSTED: Bernie Sanders Arrested for Demanding Justice in 1963 (PHOTOS)

NATIONAL (VFB) – The Chicago Tribune has released an archival photo of a young 21 year-old Bernie Sanders being placed under arrest by city police officers during a Civil Rights protest in 1963.

When showed the arrest picture, “Bernie identified it himself,” said campaign advisor Tad Devine. “He looked at it — he actually has his student ID from the University of Chicago in his wallet — and he said, ‘Yes, that indeed is (me).'”

According to the Chicago newspaper, “Information with the negative indicated that the Tribune arrest photo was taken in August 1963 near South 73rd Street and Lowe Avenue.”

As previously reported, a Tribune article from that year said “Sanders was arrested Aug. 12 at 74th and Lowe and charged with resisting arrest.”

Other pictures taken that day show a tumultuous scene between police and protestors, who prior to the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, were demonstrating against the city’s segregated policies.


Just last week, after the attempts of mainstream media shills to discredit Sanders’ Civil Rights activism, famed American photographer Danny Lyon released never-before-seen pictures of a young Bernie leading his fellow students in a sit-in blocking the University President’s office.

Bernie Sanders Civil Rights Protest

Lyon described the pictures (above):

“Here at the University of Chicago, in the winter of 1962, students led by Bernie Sanders and others have occupied the hallway of the Administration Building, spending the night inside. The Chancellor cannot get into or leave his office. Bernie is leading a protest against the discrimination practiced by the University of Chicago against African Americans in its extensive housing. This protest for equal rights for African Americans is the first sit-in to be held in the north as part of  the great 1960’s civil rights movement.  Bernie is the real deal.  And voters, all voters know it.”

As if we needed any more evidence of Bernie Sanders’ lifelong commitment to fighting for equality, the Tribune arrest photo effectively ends the conversation on the matter.  Certainly there will always be those media puppets who are paid to be disingenuous, but for everyone else who appreciates empirical evidence, the case is closed.

Bernie Sanders is a champion of all people, a true leader who not only talks the talk, but walks the walk.  That’s how he’s always been, and how he’ll always be.
