  • riots were started by the Chicago Police Department.

  • Welcome to watch Mojo.

  • And today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 things.

  • The trial of the Chicago Seven got factually right and wrong site.

  • Mr.

  • Counselor, with his second count of contempt standing, Daphne O'Connor to break my heart was way out of line, Mr Counselor, the demonstrators attacked the police and the police responded for this list.

  • We're looking at plot points from this historical legal drama that were true to real life or fictionalized for the sake of storytelling.

  • What did you think of the trial of the Chicago seven?

  • Let us know in the comments.

  • Number 10.

  • Hoffman and Rubin wore judicial robes.

  • Right?

  • I have an egg.

  • The film portrays Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin as a couple of jokers who treat the trial almost like performance art.

  • And the record should reflect the defendant.

  • Hoffman and I are not related, Father.

  • No.

  • They see it as an opportunity to attract the media and more young people to the Yippie movement, undermining the no nonsense judge around every turn.

  • Mr.

  • Rubin?

  • Mr.

  • Hoffman, what are you wearing?

  • It's a no homage to you.

  • Your honor.

  • One such example is when they appear in court wearing judicial robes, much to Judge Hoffman's annoyance.

  • Take off the roads, please.

  • Silence.

  • In real life, Hoffman and Rubin did show up in robes one day, although they were not wearing police uniforms underneath, as depicted in the film.

  • Upon taking the robes off, they used them toe wipe their feet.

  • This actually sounds like something that Sasha Baron Cohen might do if he were on trial, making his casting as Abby all the more brilliant.

  • Number nine.

  • FBI agent Daphne O'Connor Wrong, Played by Caitlin Fitzgerald Gaffney.

  • O'Connor is an undercover FBI agent who has a sort of romance with Jerry Rubin after buying him a drink at a bar.

  • Nobody's ever sent me a drink before.

  • How do you like it so far?

  • It's a Tom Collins I know it's kind of a country club drink, but they're delicious.

  • Despite coming to empathize with Rubens, cause O'Connor takes the stand and breaks his heart.

  • The demonstrators attacked the police and the police responded, much like Rooney, Mara's character in the social network, Daphne O Connor, is purely a creation of Aaron Sorkin.

  • Granted, there are a few undercover agents who got close to the Chicago seven standing Daphne O'Connor to Break My Heart was way out of line.

  • Irwin Bake and William Frappe Aly infiltrated the Vets for Peace and the Students for a Democratic Society.

  • Rubin was personally duped by Robert Pearson, a Chicago police officer who went undercover as his bodyguard.

  • Yet there are no reports indicating that Rubin had a 93 hour fling with an FBI agent.

  • Nothing is more dangerous than a crowd of people who are moving.

  • It's like trying to redirect the Mississippi River.

  • Isn't she great?

  • Number eight Judge Julius Hoffman's incompetence, right?

  • You're not gonna let the jury hear his testimony?

  • Not unless you condemn unstated to May, which you have not thus far done that this witness Are you any good?

  • It's not uncommon for biopics to vilify authority figures, but Judge Julius Hoffman was every bit as antagonistic as Franklin.

  • Jealous portrayal site Mr Counselor, with his second count of contempt, described as quote, impetuous and rude and Joseph Golden's 1974 book, The Benchwarmers, the 74 year old Judge Hoffman prevented the jury from examining certain evidence that would have benefited the Chicago seven.

  • Your parents received this note this morning in their mail they call the police.

  • Is they should have done.

  • As in the film, the families of two young jurors received threatening letters allegedly from the Black Panthers, which the defense claimed were forgeries.

  • Judge Hoffman showed them the letters leaning one toe.

  • Leave the jury.

  • Do you still feel you can render a fair and impartial verdict?

  • No, sir, you're dismissed from this jury.

  • According to attorney Gerald Lefcourt, Judge Hoffman was quote pro government on a mission, viewing the defense team as the quote enemy from Day one.

  • As such, the judge issued 175 counts of contempt of court throughout the trial.

  • Number seven.

  • Richard Schultz was sympathetic to the defendant's wrong.

  • Although he was a junior prosecutor, the film suggests that Richard Schultz sympathized with the Chicago seven.

  • We're all on the same team, in a sense, I guess, but in a much truer sense, were not.

  • While Schultz does his job, he doesn't get much joy from it.

  • Meanwhile, lead prosecutor Tom Foreign shows little empathy for the defendants.

  • It's Schultz who pleads with Judge Hoffman to have mercy on Bobby Seale leading to his mistrial.

  • I'm issuing an order declaring a mistrial.

  • Eyes with the defendant, Bobby Juicy.

  • In reality, this was the U.

  • S.

  • Attorney's offices doing.

  • Several people have argued that Schultz was far more hotheaded than scene in the movie, earning a reputation as Quote the government's pit bull.

  • What are you doing?

  • Respect for the phone defendant David Dellinger went as far as to call Schulz.

  • Quote a snake and a quote Nazi.

  • Some would also debate that Farron was the more restrained of the two, although he did make plenty of controversial comments.

  • Number six David Dellinger punched a martial wrong.

  • David Dellinger is depicted as a radical pacifist who wanted to keep the protests peaceful.

  • You're a thug because you are.

  • Please sit.

  • Mr.

  • Dillinger is finally pushed to his limits when Judge Hoffman throws out key testimony calling him a quote thug.

  • If we're guilty, why not give us a trial?

  • Marshals see the defense if we're guilty, which you have clearly decided.

  • Dave, what's your thing?

  • Culminates in Dillinger, punching a martial and apologizing before being dragged out?

  • You know, I don't know.

  • Although it is a powerful moment.

  • Dillinger never used physical violence in court.

  • This isn't to say Dillinger never threw a punch in his life.

  • I'm story.

  • He showed great remorse for knocking out another man in college, which may have inspired the scene.

  • Throughout the trial, however, Dillinger stuck by his pacifist worldview that said he was escorted out at one point for interrupting a witness.

  • It was at this point that Dillinger made his snake and Nazi comments about Schulz number five.

  • The jury didn't hear Ramsey.

  • Clark's testimony right in investigation by our criminal division led to the conclusion that the riots were started by the Chicago Police Department.

  • In the film, the cases seemingly blown wide open.

  • When Attorney General Ramsey Clark takes the stand, he recounts, telling the president over the phone that the Chicago PD likely started the riots.

  • The jury isn't present to hear this bombshell, however, and Judge Hoffman decrees that his testimony will not be shared.

  • You're not gonna let the jury hear his testimony?

  • Not unless you condemn unstated to May, which you have not thus far done that this witness are you any good?

  • Judge Hoffman did, in fact, Bar Clark as a defense witness ruling that he made quote, no relevant or material contribution to the case.

  • It's debatable if Clarke's testimony truly would have been the smoking gun the film leads us to believe.

  • Please, sir, I will be forced to find you in contempt.

  • You understand?

  • Nevertheless, defense attorney William Kunstler called Judge Hoffman's ruling quote absolutely unheard of in the history of the United States, adding that it quote sets a precedent that is horrendous to contemplate.

  • Number four.

  • Jerry Rubin's arrest wrong In one of the movies most intense moments, the police and protesters clash atop a hill, although this played out differently in reality.

  • Ah, fleet of officers wasn't waiting for the protesters when they arrived at the General John Logan Memorial.

  • On the contrary, a significant number of cops intervened after the crowd started taking the hill.

  • The scene shows Ruben rescuing a female protester carrying an American flag as three men force themselves on her.

  • While there doesn't appear to be any account of this happening, Robert Pearson claims that a conflict did erupt over a communist flag.

  • Don't move, Jerry.

  • Get those guys they under arrest.

  • Even so, Ruben wasn't arrested during the riot, as the film depicts, but at a later time when he was on the street with a buddy number three flow all over the city.

  • Speech right, we get to the root of the riots is Rennie Davis is beaten by the police at Grant Park out of nowhere, motivating Tom Hayden to deliver his blood flowing all over the city speech.

  • Although this wasn't the first time Hayden got fired up, it's widely believed that Davis is beating, ignited his speech and the ensuing chaos.

  • Absolutely.

  • If Blood is going to flow, let me.

  • Oh, all over Chicago, we're going with the convention.

  • Through his research, Aaron Sorkin found that Hayden meant to say our blood.

  • In an interview with Greek, Sorkin said, quote, I think that there's a part of Tom that feels like he inadvertently caused a tremendous amount of violence and all of the blood that was spilled that night.

  • Not the Tom nor anyone else thinks that the riot was Tom's fault.

  • The police could have easily not started smacking people in the head with baseball bats.

  • You didn't try and stop anyone.

  • No Number two Bobby Seale's mistreatment and Fred Hampton's death right, the Chicago seven were truly the Chicago eight, I said it would be impossible for me to care any less what you are tired of.

  • The eighth person in question was Black Panther Party co founder Bobby Seale, who wasn't permitted to postpone his trial when his lawyer needed gall bladder surgery was premeditated murder.

  • Fred Hampton was assassinated last night, unable to defend himself, Seal was left without counsel.

  • Most notably, Seal really was restrained and gagged after an outburst in the film Seals speech stems from Fred Hampton's shooting during a raid.

  • Although this actually happened after seal was bound in court, it's generally believed that Hampton's death was an assassination carried out by the FBI.

  • Do I have your assurance?

  • Seal was actually restrained for several days, as opposed to a few minutes.

  • Judge Hoffman would declare a mistrial separating seal from the other seven before we unveil our topic.

  • Here are some honorable mentions.

  • Abbie Hoffman discussed the trial in public right.

  • Check out his album Wake Up America.

  • If you want to hear Mawr, they got hate him.

  • They got hated.

  • We got a march down to the police station, overcome the cops and the Illinois National God and free Tom Hayden Yeah, couldn't find our way out of the park march to bail out Tom Hayden, right?

  • Protesters and police did confront each other at the station.

  • S troops who died in Vietnam since the trial started.

  • Private Eric Gallon Bosch, 21 years old.

  • Mr Concert Lance Corporal Robert Earl Ellis, 19 years old.

  • It's a triumphant moment, but did it really happen?
