It matters little how much time has passed since Special Agents Jack R. Coler and Ronald A. Williams were performing their lawfully appointed duties searching for a fugitive on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
It also matters little that many have tried to change the narrative of what happened that fateful day; an agenda filled with fabrications, disinformation and outright lies; nor that a trial and dozens of appeals have proven guilt beyond a reasonable doubt; that many public statements have proven guilt beyond all doubt, and to a moral certainty. Their denouement panders to the unsuspecting, sycophantic, and naive.
It does matter a great deal, however, that Jack Coler and Ron Williams were subject to an unprovoked attack, severely wounded and summarily executed by cowardly members of the American Indian Movement.
What matters to the ultimate extent is that justice continues and USP Coleman inmate #89637-132 remains incarcerated serving two consecutive life sentences and seven additional years for an armed escape.
May Jack and Ron continue to Rest In Peace knowing that their dedication, bravery and sacrifice in the line of duty will never fade from our collective memories.
