JOHNNY MOORE-ANOTHER VICTIM ?
Posted by rezinate on November 15, 2011
Keeping an accurate count is at best challenging, and the true numbers may never be known. The most familiar AIM victims have been Annie Mae Pictou Aquash and Perry Ray Robinson, but a strong case can be made that 20 year old Johhny Moore, a Penobscot, found dead in a Nebraska AIM house can be added to the list.
The original official report listed the cause of Moore’s death as suicide, and the story was floated that he had become despondent. But this story was disputed by individuals who knew and had access to him.
The cloying scent of foul play that has clung to Moore’s death has resulted from the fact that he was under supoena to testify against Stanley Neptune-a fellow AIM member.
The investigation into Moore’s death was originally conducted by the Lincoln, Nebraska police department who listed it as a probable suicide, and it wasn’t until years later in a follow up investigation by the Nebraska State Police that the cause of death was changed to undetermined.
As I understand it when such is the case it is protocol to then pursue it as a possible homicide- and although I am not privy to any official information pertaining to such an investigation I do know that statements have been issued addressing the difficulty attributed to the now infamous code of silence.
I don’t know, and neither do I think does anyone what the nature of Johnny Moore’s testimony would have been-but the mere fact that he was supoenaed was apparently sufficient cause for the AIM “security apparatus” to label him a snitch. Sounds all too familiar doesn’t it?
And so once again all the elements were in place:
Motivation: A young man deemed as a threat and labeled a snitch, and effectively isolated among his peers by such a pronouncement just as Annie was.
Opportunity: Moore was staying at Wounded Knee Legal Defense flop house in Lincoln along with several others.
Result: Another senseless death, and AIM as usual has been struck deaf, dumb,and blind-nobody knows anything and have even less to say.
I didn’t know Johnny Moore but I suspect he was a decent young man who cared for his people, and in wanting something better for them fell for the bullshit AIM line-a line of bullshit and an association that ultimately cost him his life…..at a mere twenty years of age.
It is my sincere wish that people would just step back a moment, forget all the by rote defenses and factory issued conspiracy tales and objectively look at events that have transpired in the last few decades-I’m not suggesting they summarily toss their beliefs asides but to ask questions, to think, to employ even the most rudimentary forms of logic and reason.
If everyone would do so this would be a whole new ball game-silence is consent, it is a degree of participation by any formula, if we do not personally grieve for a loved one lost, a victim, we are no less removed from those who do.
That’s what the “we are all related” is about-and seemingly forgotten.
“A good example, the 1974 murder case of Johnny Moore (Penobscot) called to testify in the trial of Stanley Neptune for running over the foot of a US Marshall at Wounded Knee in 1973. The District Attorney for Lincoln, Nebraska was running for Attorney General that year and allegedly said he didn’t want to have the same kind of “AIM” problems SD was having. (I will find his name). Johnny Moore’s death was determined by him to be a suicide, after they say he became despondent after being accused of being an FBI spy, and surrounded by AIM members, he slashed a knife so hard to his face it chipped his cheekbone, then severed his neck through his esophagus where upon he bled to death — all self-inflicted, the then dreaming to be Attorney General determined. It took years for his mother, Jeanne, family and tribe, (and still living at Indian Island, Maine in 2011) to have the case reviewed by a special commission of the State Patrol who then ruled it “probably homicide” several years later, by then — the evidence was history, and people scattered far and wide.”

“Probably homicide”….probably? More like obvious I would say – another one of those dirty little secrets the AIM leadership doesn’t know anything about or care to discuss.
I’d say the DA should have wound up in jail for obstructing justice, tampering, and in effect aiding and abetting and at the very least should have led to a federal investigation.
But then that’s just another decades old crime the USAG and DOJ doesn’t want to burden themselves with considering Holder’s public announcement they aren’t interested in cases forty years old- like the AIM murder of Perry Ray Robinson jr. or any number of murders committed by AIM.
Statistics are kept related to crimes…murder, rape, assault, robbery, and even “suicide”.
It would be interesting to see how many people commit suicide by first slashing their face and then cutting their throat with such a ferocity as to sever their esophagus.
Especially Actuarial charts kept by insurance companies who know this sort of thing forward and backward.
Apparently Moore didn’t have a life insurance policy, for if he had of it’s reasonable to assume insurance investigators would have entered the fray and it would have been an entirely different ballgame.
Since this involved AIM and a U.S. Marshall the feds surely would have been in the loop, as in monitoring the approach and whether there was a a proper investigation that could have led to indictments – that implies to me they would have been aware of the “findings”, had access to the coroners report if in fact they didn’t oversee it, and any related documents they deemed germane.
Yet it took years for a “special commission” to arrive at the conclusion that Johnny Moore’s death was “probably murder”?
That’s a commission convened by the State Patrol, not any federal agency.
You know that cliche about there’s no such thing as a perfect crime? Apparently that’s bs, or an urban myth, as AIM seems to have committed them on a routine basis if the lack of prosecution is to be the definition.
Am I saying AIM’s hand was in murder of Moore? I surely am, and that can only mean either some or all within the leadership knew what was going on.
People haven’t any reservations to address the heinous character of serial murderers like Jack the Ripper, Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, or a host of others – yet among them are those who absolutely refuse to acknowledge what is before their very eyes when it comes to AIM, it’s leadership, or wannabe poster boy Leonard Peltier.
Why that is I haven’t a clue, and seriously doubt I ever will as such a position is completely without merit.
