Rev. Jesse Jackson makes another stop in Freeport


The Reverend Jesse Jackson made another stop in Freeport on Wednesday, but this time he was headed for the courthouse and not the picket lines.

Jackson was arrested along with several Sensata workers last month during a protest against the closing of the plant and the outsourcing of jobs to China.

During his appearance, Jackson said he and the other protesters are willing to do whatever it takes to stop corporate greed and the loss of American jobs.

Jackson and the others arrested are still waiting to hear their punishment for the incident. Jackson says they're ready to go to trial if necessary.
