Illuminating the events of Friday, September 23, 2005, when the FBI fired more than 120 bullets into the home of Puerto Rican independence leader Filiberto Ojeda Rios, this zine goes deep into the reasons behind it. The FBI considered Ojeda Rios the head of a domestic terrorist group, the militant Puerto Rican independence group Los Macheteros, and he was their most wanted man until 9/11. But in Puerto Rico he has long been viewed as a hero and now many Puerto Ricans of all political stripes have questioned the FBI's actions, especially because the shooting took place on the anniversary of an 1868 uprising against imposed Spanish rule. This zine investigates why this didn't appear on the nightly news and questions whether agencies of the U.S. government are still carrying out vigilante justice.
