Dear Supporters:

On May 16th President Obama honored thirteen law enforcement officers, one posthumously, with the Public Safety Medal of Valor. The police officers and one FBI Agent were recognized for their dedication and exceptional courage and bravery, saving lives, subduing or apprehending criminals while placing their own lives in grave danger.

The President recognized "The men and women who run toward danger remind us with your courage and humility what the highest form of citizenship looks like." Attorney General Lynch added that during such violent confrontations the natural instinct would be to seek shelter but "they ran towards the sounds of gunfire..." responding to uphold their sworn duties.

Honoring Philadelphia officer Robert Wilson III, who was killed while off duty attempting to prevent an armed robbery, brings back memories of another Philadelphia officer, Daniel Faulkner, who was brutally gunned down by Wesley Cook, aka Mumia. Wesley Cook, like Leonard Peltier, had become notoriously popular among those who chose to ignore the facts and perversely cling to the folklore rather than recognize them as the cold blooded murderers they really were. (Footnote #1)

One of those recognized by the President was FBI Agent Tyler Call. Although of a later generation, Agent Call and the tens of thousands of current and former FBI agents and law enforcement officials are painfully aware of the brutal murders of Special Agents Jack Coler and Ron Williams in 1976. Their killer now seeks consideration for his brutal crimes.

Thank you President Obama for honoring those who have served courageously and all too often died in the line of duty.

If Leonard Peltier’s clemency application should ever reach your desk, please weigh it in regard to just two of Peltier’s many public statements concerning the unprovoked attack and brutal murders of two federal agents, “And Really, if necessary, I’d do it all over again because it was the right thing to do (2010),” and, “I don’t regret any of this for a minute (2014).”

Peltier remains remorseless and unrepentant and should continue to serve the consecutive life sentences the courts have repeatedly upheld. Peltier is undeserving of any consideration. (Fn: 2)
