There have been countless times in the past 30+ years that I’ve shaken my head in utter disbelief and asked myself these questions:
“How is it that the FBI has spent so much time, man-power and money to keep one man, Leonard Peltier #89637-132 imprisoned based on their own fear, misconstrued fallacies, and lies?” “How is it that Leonard Peltier #89637-132 is not yet a free man?”
Of course when one or two questions come to mind, more follow……
• How is it that Amnesty International, one of the biggest non-profit Human Rights Organization in the World has been advocating for Leonard Peltier #89637-132’s release from Prison for years on end to no avail?
• How is it that The United Nations, the World’s #1 Peace Force has repeatedly spoken up in many Human Rights forums for Leonard Peltier #89637-132’s release from Wrongful Incarceration to no avail?
• How is it that for 40 years (as of February 2016) countless Individuals and Organizations world-wide including Tribal Leaders, Dignitaries, Celebrities, Educators, Attorneys, Politicians, Activists, Spiritual Leaders and more have pleaded, begged, cried, and screamed for Leonard Peltier #89637-132’s release from Enslavement to no avail?

• How is it that the United States Government can rally for Human Rights in other Countries and condemn abuses made by other Countries yet ignore and deny abuses perpetrated by our own government within our own Country? Leonard Peltier #89637-132 is by far not the only individual so abused.
• How is it that the United States Justice System admits to and acknowledges the wrongs perpetrated against Leonard Peltier #89637-132 and yet refuses to advocate for his release by supporting that President Barack Obama (and previous Presidents) grant him Executive Clemency?

• How is it that the United States Federal Prison System can house so many Inmates at such an outrageous cost without considering releasing those who are innocent, have served more time due to racial/ethnic prejudices, or are elderly and infirm and should have a compassionate release? Leonard Peltier #89637-132 falls into each of these categories.
