uh huh, “might help solve other cold cases from Wounded Knee” – an assumption based on what, that a federal interest actually exists to do so?
If so somebody in the DOJ needs to verify that rather than the USAG issuing statements they have no interest in pursuing cases forty years old.
“Jackley said, however, that he got to know Means over many years and believes he had nothing to do with the criminal conspiracy to kill Aquash, although Jackley said Means had been involved in an earlier murder and other crimes.”
Really? Not withstanding the fact that Annie was taken to and murdered on the Pine Ridge reservation, or that a variety of family members were directly involved? That she was interrogated at the wkldc office with his bud attorney Bruce Ellison and family members present?
Doesn’t matter that the call to murder her was taken at his Brother Bill’s?
All this went on behind the man’s back who said nothing AIM related could take place on PR without his express knowledge and consent? BULLSHIT!!!!!
” Means also aided Jackley and others in law enforcement in the case, Jackley said.”
Means “aided” law enforcement? By his and AIM’s standard that makes him a snitch, a fed, rat, and all the other titles they’re so willing to bestow on anyone who speaks against them.
Couple this with being an “informant” and the acknowledgment that Means was involved in other murders and crimes and it suddenly begins to look like good ol’ Russ got a pass doesn’t it? A little of that immunity.
Maybe if the question of whether he was were to be asked the response might be similar to the one given about Dave “Mr. X” Hill, though a variation on not giving up an informant while they’re alive would be necessary.
Yeah, a library needs to be erected in his honor, and he should always be referred to as “a great statesman”. And let’s not forget he was a modern day Crazy Horse, liberator, and patriot….again, BULLSHIT!!!!!
If you haven’t read the below linked article you should, if you already have you should again and ask yourself a few questions.
I’ve stated repeatedly my long held belief is that one or more of the AIM leadership rolled over if and when it served them.
Point undeniably proven now related to Means….now what about the rest of them?
