Bail reduction hearing postponed for Black Panther offshoot group

Yesterday was supposed to be the first of two bail reduction hearings for the San Francisco 8 — former members of an armed offshoot of the Black Panthers, the Black Liberation Army, who were charged in January for crimes supposedly committed 36 years ago, including acts of conspiracy and the murder of a police officer, Sgt. John Young. They’re being held on bail from $3 to $5 million each.
