It’s amazing that no one is ever guilty in the eyes of some.
The evidence points directly to Peltier.
Much of the case for freeing him is built on very shaky ground. The films and books about the issue propagates a grand conspiracy theory without factual basis. The average person had no way of knowing when truth was stretched to fit theory. To some this is just one of the innumerable government conspiracies constantly happening all around us.
It also don’t help when outside media, book writers and TV films gin up the facts and ignore the evidence. Peltiers appeals fail because of failed arguments and made up positions by his defense.
On June 26, 1975, two FBI agents in separate cars, were following at a distance a vehicle they thought was owned by a suspect named Jimmy Eagle, when it pulled off a lonely country road and stopped.
“They're getting out of the vehicle,” FBI agent Williams cautioned over the radio. A moment later, Williams's voice became urgent:“It looks like these guys are going to shoot at us!” And they did just that. The two FBI cars took some 125 hits from high-powered rifles at a distance of roughly 250 yards. The agents, armed only with service revolvers, fired five futile shots in return. Both were quickly hit and wounded. As they lay helpless behind their cars, one or more of the gunmen approached. In a vain attempt to forestall the inevitable, agent Williams raised his hand to the barrel of an AR-15 now less than two feet from his face.
Indifferent to his plea, the gunman let it rip. The shot blew off Williams’s fingers before lodging in his face, killing him instantly. The gunman then put the semiconscious Coler out of his misery with shots to the head and throat and fled the scene.
Someone killed/murdered the two FBI Agents. There were people present at the AIM camp that were eye witnesses but no one has ever pointed out anyone else as the killer of the two agents. Of course the stories keep changing but in a manner to free the guilty but never to produce someone else as the guilty party.
Leonard Peltier says he knows but won't tell. Other AIM members say they know but will not tell. So let the man to whom the evidence points serve the time for the crime.
Fact is there is a couple of men that should also be in jail are walking around free.

I'm not saying he's guilty or innocent but I don't see that he has been treated fairly or lawfully. There is evidence of witness tampering, false testimony, and hidden evidence. This case is circumstantial at best. When one is convicted of murder, it must be beyond reasonable doubt. There is reasonable doubt here so his convistion is bogus. By the way, why were the FBI looking for a boot thief in an unmarked car, wearing plain clothes on private land? Seems fishy to me.
