The Onondaga 15 have been forbidden to talk to the media during the trial. They can't speak out even though they are the victims of this tragic horror when the New York State Troops Indian Detail attacked them at Onondaga on may 14, 1997.
Ronald Jones said in an earlier interview that he rejected an offer of a $40,000 settlement earlier.
"They broke my back that day," Jones said.

The media is covering the trial from outside the courtroom.
