Word is USAG Eric Holder has said he’s not interested in pursuing crimes forty or more years old-I’m willing to bet though that will have a selective application.
If true, then AIM must be celebrating, and it can truly be said that not only did they commit the perfect crimes but were aided and abetted by the system in doing so.
AIM will of course continue to shed crocodile tears and clamor over a new trial or clemency for Peltier, while at the same time studiously avoiding any mention of the names of their victims-should any movement occur in that direction they will weep and wail and immediately don the victim costume while crying foul.
Hell of a thing that the pursuit of justice rests on the interest or lack of interest in pursuing it by a lone individual.
Even more so when said individual doesn’t hold an elective office and apparently feels empowered enough to arbitrarily impose a de facto statute of limitations without virtue of debate or legislation.
Ultimately this seems to substantiate my long held belief that the passage of time and the principals has been the strategy all along-and in my opinion there can only be a very limited number of reasons for that…none of them good, none of them just, none of them honorable.
But then what’s a few more dead Indians right? A mere drop in the in the historical context of the bucket – especially if they were killed by their own ethnic Chivington’s.
And that dead civil rights activists Perry Ray Robinson Jr.? Just another black man his own leadership has forgotten and apparently could care less about-besides, he shouldn’t have been there in the first place right?
Who the hell did he think was? Probably just “uppity” or a “Commie”.
