NPPA Pin Available


 
Dear Supporters:
 
 
The NPPA Pin is available again.
ALL proceeds from the sale of the NPPA pins will be equally donated to the Society of Former Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Foundation http://www.socxfbi.org/ and the Red Cloud Indian School, Pine Ridge, South Dakota http://www.redcloudschool.org/

Please note: These are not tax-deductible donations but will be contributed equally to the Society Foundation and Red Cloud; no charitable donations will be claimed by the NPPA or any other individual: Unlike, Leonard Peltier, and the Leonard Peltier Defense-Offense Committee, who illegally launders their “donations” through a third-party shill. The NPPA has posted its finances and defies Peltier to do the same. No one knows how much money Peltier and the LPDOC (and formerly the LPDC) have scammed from supporters who are only buying into the myth.
Heraldry of the NPPA Lapel Pin
The colors, deep black contrasting with bright and shining gold represents the divergence of views of those on each side of the Peltier issue. A circular pin with two circles representing the narrow and continuous path followed by those in the law enforcement profession to balance personal interests in favor of the common good and protecting the life and liberty of citizens. A simple "In Memory" to honor all those who have given their lives in the line of duty. The shield, often the only thing standing between the law enforcement officer and those who would do him or her harm. A banner, reaching out to touch both sides of the inner circle representing the camaraderie of those who walk in a close circle and have chosen a special profession. And the date of death in the line of duty of two young men who were wounded, murdered, and left on a muddy road in an isolated field in South Dakota. Click here to learn more.
The NPPA pin is now available and was created to honor the sacrifice of FBI Agents' Jack Coler and Ron Williams and to continue the awareness of the guilt of Leonard Peltier.
Ordering: NPPA pins are $6.50 including postage: Check or Money Order payable to the No Parole Peltier Association and send to No Parole Peltier Association, PO Box 54667, Cincinnati, Ohio 45254-0667. Limit of five (5) pins per order. Thank you.

 Re: Leonard Peltier
        “Political prisoner”

 
Dear Professor Anaya:
 
Please allow me to respond to your recent contact with Leonard Peltier and the press release describing your visit.

The press release stated, “Every piece of evidence to convict Mr. Peltier has been since proven false.” This statement is fatally flawed.
 
As you no doubt understand, the Peltier matter has been examined—under the proverbial microscope—for nearly four decades and has withstood every legal test. There have been no Constitutional violations, otherwise there would be no discussion regarding Leonard Peltier today.

As a Harvard educated attorney, and given your commendable accomplishments in support of Indigenous peoples, the facts and details of Peltier’s conviction and appeals should be a critical priority. Going beyond the myth and folklore that has surrounded Peltier, fabrications that have adulterated what really happened that June day, is crucial to understanding his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. The facts are clear and convincing for those who care to examine the essential details of his conviction.

Beyond his conviction, Peltier himself has reinforced his actual guilt beyond a moral certainty. An innocent man would not have offered many false alibis; for instance, the two-decade-long pretext that a phantom Mr. X killed the agents, a claim disavowed by one of those personally involved and as late as last year by one of his own attorneys.

The overwhelming majority of Native Americans, especially the older generation, recognize that AIM’s activities during the seventies and beyond contributed nothing to the betterment of the Native American experience.

AIM’s sordid history of greed, destruction and manipulation is self-evident and common knowledge. This includes those AIM members and Leonard Peltier’s criminal actions at Jumping Bull that infamous day.

Many erroneously consider Peltier a political prisoner. If that were so then the events of June 26, 1975 would have, by necessity, assumed an entirely different meaning. Agents’ Coler and Williams were attacked, gravely wounded and then murdered.  Or, as if some suggest this was an act of Political defiance by Peltier and other AIM members, then instead it would have been a deliberate ambush and an assassination. The facts do not support that premise. It was solely the act of cowardly criminals.

As someone with your experience, how do we reconcile Peltier as a political prisoner and allegedly innocent of the crimes that put him in Coleman, when he had this to say about what happened at Jumping Bull:

 “I seen Joe when he pulled it out of the trunk and I looked at him when he put it on, and he gave me a smile,” Leonard remembers. “I didn’t think nothing of it at the time; all I could think of was, we got to get out of here.” (Spirit of Crazy Horse, P.552).

So picture this if you will, Joe Stuntz takes Agent Coler’s FBI jacket from the trunk of his Bureau vehicle, puts it on, and gives Peltier a smile. Meanwhile, at their feet are too dead human beings who were first attacked and mortally wounded and lay there with their faces destroyed as Peltier and the others ransacked the vehicles and stole the agents’ weapons.

Peltier needs not be remorseful about his crimes but he has gone much further.  Not taking his statement out of context, he said, “I never thought my commitment would mean sacrificing like this, but I was willing to do so nonetheless. And Really, if necessary, I’d do it all over again because it was the right thing to do. (Public statement February 6, 2010.) And there is much more.
 
Peltier, and those who support him, have succeeded in creating the myth of a brave warrior fighting for his people when the exact opposite is true. He has hijacked and diminished an otherwise proud Native history and culture for his own personal aggrandizement and self-interest.

I would welcome the opportunity to further discuss the Peltier matter with you.
 
There are many deserving of leniency and consideration; Leonard Peltier is not one of them.
 
Sincerely,

SA Jack R. Coler; January 12, 1947...Rest In Peace


Dear Supporters:

There is no way of knowing with absolute certainty how Jack’s life would have turned out.

We do, however, know that what he was in life is an indication of what that future would have been. Jack was a devoted husband, father and family man, a professional in uniform with the LAPD and a consummate, professional agent. There would have been many good things and wonderful times in his future, retirement, perhaps a post-retirement career and now enjoying grandchildren. But instead, at Sun Valley last summer we honored his Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity, and sacrifice in the line of duty. He can rest in peace knowing that there are many who will never forget.

Peltier’s dwindling network, as described previously, has crumbled again. http://wwwnoparolepeltiercom-justice.blogspot.com/. However, this latest event may be an omen that his days are indeed numbered. Not even the most intransigent supporters who have bought into the fabrications, myth and folklore, (a charitable way of reminding everyone of Peltier’s incessant torrent of lies and fabrications) remain for long, as he forces those away with his persistently corrupt and bullying demeanor. His website remains dormant as he tries to grasp onto every excuse imaginable to divert attention from the truth. Peltier’s cell is shrinking as his hallucinations of clemency, or any leniency for his unconscionable crimes, evaporate.

Peltier sought to transcend and redeem an otherwise meaningless life. One day he’s an alienated and insignificant AIM hanger-on, gofer and thug enforcer, the next, June 26, 1975 he joined the annals of infamy with all that witnesses the darker side of humanity. He thus became a cowardly attacker and broker of cold-blooded murder worthy of nothing more than disdain while his very existence defiles an otherwise proud Native heritage.

Peltier can pass each day contemplating his ignorance, arrogance and misdeeds, and ponder with what little time he has left, to consider whether his actions that June day should have been different and avoiding four decades behind bars and a completely wasted life.

MEET JACK & RON...


Dear Supporters:

Since April 30, 2000, and throughout the process of exposing and demystifying the folklore surrounding Peltier for nearly four decades, the memory and sacrifice of Jack Coler and Ron Williams has largely related to them as they were that June day at Jumping Bull, FBI Special Agents who were doing their job and were attacked and brutally murdered in the line of duty.

We now have an opportunity to meet them beyond that day, as genuinely decent men who made their own meaningful contributions, were loved and respected by their peers, friends and deeply committed to their families.

The following video, prepared by the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI allows us now to know them as real people, as honorable human beings that left a void well beyond those who knew and loved them.

A special thanks to those who created this memorable work.
