Lot of talk about clemency for Peltier -some seem to think it is a given on Obama’s way out of office.
Of course we’ve heard that before when Clinton’s administration was winding down.
Personally I don’t feel as though short of accepting responsibility and cooperating to bring a closure to the issues that haunt the nations Peltier should ever be released.
On the other hand if he were to be I think it should be linked if not to the above listed conditions then full disclosure….the release of all pertinent documents including Peltier’s parole board hearings.
I’ve also suggested there be an impartial truth commission and suspect there is as much chance of that happening as the one I propose now.
Now as a “warrior”, “political prisoner”, and a “human being whose been wronged”, I can’t see how Peltier or LPDOC could have an issue with that.
I’d like it if LPDOC’s financial records were a part of such an agreement, but will forgo suggesting such as I wouldn’t want to leave them any wiggle room to protest or cause them to feel compelled to oppose such a plan or take the fifth.
Deals are routinely made-kind of like the one that allowed Dave Hill to walk-so if Peltier is allowed to then let it likewise be because a deal was struck and not some cobbled together myth.
