As many as twelve bodies, an AIM “warrior” legacy, and all of them innocent victims from Ray Robinson to the ” Mexican Man” and the “unnamed women”.
Hardly a legacy of which to be proud of- rather one to lie about and deny as AIM has done for decades.
Frank Fools Crow and Matthew King , respected elders, leaders in their own right- their word, a part of what must be a huge case file, and yet has amounted to nothing more than a routine press release or response that these murders are part of an “ongoing investigation”.
An investigation seemingly without end-as though designed to run in perpetuity until no one is left to prosecute and culminating in the inevitable case closed.
It seems as though the cases have already been closed, a decision reached on some level years ago, and all that remains is semantics, a game of verbal musical chairs where all are guaranteed a place to sit no matter how fast or slow, or how long the orchestra plays.
The nations can make a strong case for centuries of persecution, those seeking justice and closure for the murders AIM committed can make an equally strong case for a lack of prosecution.
That too falls under the heading of persecution to me- a persecution that wilfully disallows what is due the victims and their survivors.
