Former Vice President Freemon and his children reappeared in Lexington, Virginia mere hours after their disappearance from Federal custody. Their feed went live on every network that would carry them, and inventive hackers pushed the signal to many networks that refused the feed. The elder Freemon could barely stand, and both he and his children wore clothing that revealed the obvious signs of long-term, systematic torture. His address to all the nation that would listen was simple. He recanted his admission of partaking in sedition, and every single named coconspirator, stating they were the result of torture. He said that he did not believe his wife was alive. He charged the government with killing her and demanded justice. He ended with a smile of broken teeth and a simple statement. “Sic semper tyrannis.” The Commonwealth of Virginia motto. “Thus always to Tyrants.”
