Justice delayed is justice denied. Why has the Govt waited all these years to prosecute this case. Something smells here. I suspect a big part of this ,is the Justice departments desire to put another nail in Peltier's coffin, as they do not want him paroled. Even if Peltier killed the FBI agents, who were trying to kill him, he has served many more years than most murderers. It is time to put the Pine Rige icidents behind us. Yes, FBI agents are long dead, but so is Randy Weavers wife, killed at Ruby Ridge, by Govt agents who have not served more than 30 years in jail for that murder, as Peltier has done.

Nuts.
There never was any evidence that the two FBI agents were trying to kill anyone. They were not even after Peltier that day. They had no reason to want to kill Peltier.

That statement is pure b/s.

Now the reason he is very likely still behind bars is because he killed two men in cold blood. He has never accepted responsibility or shown remorse. He has admitted it in private converstations and witness (more than one) have pointed a finger at him.

He is right where he deserves to be. Fact is he should have gotten the death penality.
