Kind of been wondering lately about the lack of another alarm emanating from ILPDC – guess this is it.
Seems the Peltierites latest wedgie is due to a denial of transfer to a medium security prison requested by their boy
The denial I’m inclined to think would have been a forgone conclusion, kind of a no brainer, as I assume routine when related to an inmate who previously escaped with the loss of life related to such an attempt.
Of course for the Peltierites it can’t be anything so mundane as that, it has to be something more.
Something Darth Vadar like, enter the reference to healthcare.
Of course there’s the ever present possible added benefit it might garner a few more donations in the process.
“protection from violence”. Is that to say his fellow inmates don’t view him as the courageous hero warrior he claims to be and he now lives in fear?
At his age does Peltier pose an escape attempt? I doubt it, he’s so overweight he couldn’t run if he had to anyway.
And doubtful his AIM champions inspite of maintaining a facade of genuine concern for decades would assist in any way as they did previously.
Behind the curtain they’ve had their fill of Peltier the personality and yet have been obliged to play the game.
I suspect the letter writing campaigns and calls to action are increasingly falling on deaf ears, the response dwindling, kind of like the last “fundraiser” for legal fees that fell pathetically and ominously short of the goal.
Peltier’s in a real mood,
He even goes on about how little his “celebrity” supporters donate financially to the cause, in itself another omen. Peltier knows talk is cheap, he wants the money.
Pony up or your commitment is suspect.
I have a vague sense that as time winds down Peltier will do what it takes to get released, to admit the truth and accept responsibility.
The fabricated myth hasn’t worked and the options have come down to step up or fade away.
This dependent on which way Obama goes related to clemency.
If he grants it then the money making circus comes to town, books, movies, speaking engagements and the like. If he doesn’t the proverbial fat lady will have sung and the only possible option would be to admit the truth.
It’s one thing to stand in defiance for the truth and quite another to throw your life away for a lie.
I wonder if given the option would Peltier’s or any of AIM’s victims have opted for life in prison or incarceration in a grave where no appeals or transfer requests to something less confining can be mounted?
Things seem to be coming apart at the seams in the Peltier world, in his latest missive of 6-5-2015 Peltier goes on about those within the inner sanctum at LPDOC having their own agenda and the need to reanimate the “defense committee” – even brought his son in to that end and in the way Peltier words it it is as though he doesn’t trust the task to others – maybe because they won’t follow the dictates of his bloated ego.
Undoubtedly over the years Peltier has convinced himself the reason he remains behind bars is due to the ineptitude and personal agendas of those at LPDOC, easier I suppose than to admit he never had a leg to stand on and his verbal faux pas along the way didn’t help.
Purges and reorganizations are a fact of life in the Peltier world, I imagine they are the result of those involved coming to an understanding that the myth is exactly that, a myth, and once having done so either move on or begin to ask questions.
And just for the record, Peltier’s life is nowhere near being in anyone’s hands as that of his victims were in his.
Who is Leonard Peltier? A convicted murderer, thug, interrogator of women at gunpoint, narcissist, and a delusional serial liar……. something that’s becoming increasingly evident.
