My opinion is that he was not proven guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt. If you want an in depth story of the whole Wounded Knee II standoff a book by Peter Matthiessen "In The Spirit of Crazy Horse" is very interesting. It will probably make you mad.

Not if the FBI files are correct.
No, set up is not quite my opinion. I think the FBI just messed up.

The FBI flat out wanted Leonard. Others were let go who were , at the very least, equally guilty if not more guilty than him. They wanted to make an example of him in order to silence his voice. Pick up any paper in South Dakota; the Native people are still third class citiizens. A recent Rapid City Journal story reported 8 DUI cases including some for 4th through 8th offense. The only one to recieve prisin time (2 years plus) was a Native on his 3rd offense. The rest all got probation and time served. There are many other even more odious examples.
