It must be a little nerve racking for a person like Peltier to file an application for clemency and then watch the minutes tick by wondering what the response will be.
Even more so understanding this will be the last gasp of a faltering attempt to portray an unrepentant murderer as an “innocent political prisoner”.
Not as nerve racking though as a grievously wounded man staring down the barrel of a gun knowing what comes next though – nor as nerve racking as survivors waiting for word about their loved ones.
Must be a little nerve racking to work for ILPDC knowing that Peltier exhibits many of the egocentric characteristics of Donald Trump, is a pathological liar incapable of differentiating fact from fiction, and you have to stand ready with a broom and editing pencil to clean up.
But then that wouldn’t be as nerve racking as a young mother of two having a gun stuck in her mouth while being interrogated by a thug like Peltier.
In a manner of speaking Peltier finds himself staring down the barrel of a loaded weapon as he awaits the results of his application – guess you could also say in a way that what goes around comes around.
