“A truth commission or truth and reconciliation commission is a commission tasked with discovering and revealing past wrongdoing by a government (or, depending on the circumstances, non-state actors also), in the hope of resolving conflict left over from the past. They are, under various names, occasionally set up by states emerging from periods of internal unrest, civil war, or dictatorship. South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, established by President Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu after apartheid, is popularly considered a model of truth commissions.” Wikipedia
I’d like to see a completely independent truth commission tasked with discovering, and presenting anything relevant to AIM, WK2, Leonard Peltier, and the government.
A commission with full access to all related materials and the ability to hold any who obstruct their effort in contempt and criminally liable.
Also with the authority to subpoena-though I’m not sure how that would work as by independent I mean the exclusion of legislators and law enforcement.
No “Senate” investigation, no DOJ, as they have had ample time to address the issues in their entirety and failed to do so.
I would also like to see the black community rouse themselves and demand justice, demand that their version of poverty pimps like Sharpton and Jackson, rivaled only by our own of Means and Banks, become proactive in the pursuit of justice and closure for the family of Perry Ray Robinson Jr.
The truth of the matter is that with a black president and a black USAG it is beyond comprehension that such an effort hasn’t been made.
Perry Ray Robinson Jr. was “only” one man-but so has each slain civil rights worker been only one man, or one woman.
Annie Mae Pictou-Aquash was “only” one woman, but if their individual lives are to be devalued by the lack of an aggressive pursuit of justice so too is the work they did-so too are the accomplishments of every person who ever took a stand for equality.
A list composed of our fallen ancestors and others like Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks, Mahatma Gandhi, Witold Pilecki, Raoul Wallenberg, and every voice for freedom that has ever been raised, and silenced, in the history of mankind.
Truth may hurt, but silence kills
