As everyone knows who is even vaguely familiar with this blog I am convinced that among the AIM leadership and better known henchmen there were informants as it served them when the need arose.
Too many unexplainables, questions, and what can only be an immunity to rival the likes of Whitey Bulger.
The assumption is that both informant and handler are served – one gets a free pass and the other inside information.
Paramount to this would be the ability to go unnoticed, participating in crimes would be an effective way to go about that.
Among the possibles, and there are several, Dave Hill stands out in my opinion, Hill always seemed to either be a direct participant in events or mysteriously in the vicinity.
Present at the Custer Court House melee, in fact said to have started it – in the area when Annie Mae was being held and interrogated, even said to have taken her from a house owned by Thelma Rios where she was being held to her interrogators.
Thelma Rios his one time woman and quoted as saying Hill was a cop and always was.
Present when Ray Robinson was shot at WK2, and said by some to be the shooter.
Quite a resume, but there’s more….Hill was arrested for bombing Mt. Rushmore and summarily walked away from the charges – then immediately arrested on a state weapons charge and walked away unscathed from that.
Is this guy lucky or what? The emphasis on or what.
Hill also had to face non payment of child support in Oklahoma, another fine example of a “warrior” who apparently either didn’t understand or give a damn that a part of that is providing.
This non support case intrigues me, as the word is Hill had a benefactor of the law enforcement variety intercede in his behalf, and if that can be verified is yet another red flag, another round in the chamber of a smoking gun.
After all, in the midst of those times what reason would anyone from law enforcement have to come to Hill’s aid? A question irrevocably conjoined to what possible reason could there be that would allow Hill to walk from federal charges?
Was it a classic tale of a friendship springing up between those from opposing camps, some kind of bromance best buds thing? Too much of a stretch for me in view of things.
A further intrigue to me is the resurfacing of individuals like Dino Butler, Hill, and even Redford to plead Peltier’s case – why the sudden renewed interest and participation?
Is it merely that Peltier is getting long in the tooth now, whining a little louder while sending out missives not to allow him to die in prison?
Is it that Obama in his final term is seen as someone that can be influenced? Owes something to big name Hollywood donors and will comply with their wishes as he heads out the door?
Could it be that Peltier has done as Hendrick’s said Hill did when jailed for the bombing, that is to let it be known if those on the outside don’t get him out he’ll start talking?
If Peltier wasn’t brain dead he would have talked long ago, guess he chose a fabricated celebrity over freedom or a reduced sentenced. The only way he could be “somebody” instead of just another run of the mill no name thug.
Long running soap operas would find it difficult to come up with a script like this, and Hollywood once noted for portraying our people as savages because that’s what resonated at the box office now does a 180 and wants to portray us in a more meaningful and for them lucrative way yet using all the wrong examples, cozying up to the wrong people, promoting the wrong ideas.
Isn’t it curious that while all the fingers are pointed at individuals like Frank DeLuca Blackhorse, Theda Nelson Clarke, and attempts made to do likewise with Annie Mae and Ray the same people doing the pointing would rather eat their shoe than point a finger at the Teflon coated Hill and AIM leadership?
Now that’s “loyalty”….compounded by ignorance.
