2010 ended with yet another example that Peltier’s criminal history is still being examined. The final chapter has yet to be written in the brutal slaying of Anna Mae Aquash at the hands of AIM members, although prosecutors are getting closer. Graham’s defense to the charges was to offer no defense at all. His conviction in South Dakota last December demonstrates that those involved in ordering her death have yet to be brought to justice. They know who they are and some are still out there; many of them hypocritically speaking on her behalf.
So this is one thing that Peltier can contemplate during the coming year, whether others, maybe even like Graham, will step forward and provide the sworn testimony needed to implicate him and others in her death.
Perhaps, it’s time for Peltier and the LPDOC to remove Anna Mae’s name from their website list of those allegedly “uninvestigated” deaths during the Reign of Terror…a reign for sure brought on by the criminal elements of the American Indian Movement, Peltier included.
Peltier and the LPDOC will continue their sham fundraising for legal issues which have long since been waived or lost during numerous appeals and watch as his ebbing support recedes to nothing.
Now that the holidays are over and we all face a New Year with some optimism for a recovering economy, an improved quality of life for all citizens and a saner world, please accept the very best for a healthy and happy New Year.
In the meantime and for this New Year and those to follow, our thoughts remain with the memories of Jack and Ron, their families, friends and former co-workers.
