This came during a time of turmoil in Alabama--during a time when the governor swore segregation forever. But in the fall of 1963 Birmingham's school's were forced to integrate and days later came the bombing--a bombing that symbolized the racial hatred here in the South. Throughout the trial prosecutors portrayed Cherry as a racist who boasted that he took part in the bombing. They exclaimed he and his co-horts were the forefathers of terrorism. During the case they showed video of Cherry involved in a gang style beating of a minister trying to enroll his children in a newly integrated school. But defense attorneys said past actions and guilt by associaton were not enough evidence to link Cherry to the crime. Cherry never testified in this case because his attorneys said he suffers from dementia and is easily confused. ))

Some of the symptoms of Hepatitis C include jaundice, fatigue, dark urine, abdominal pain, loss of appetite and nausea. However, 80 percent of people have no symptoms.
