On May 1, 2020 Peltier advised that he "...received a denial for compassionate release from the warden. All it said was 'At this time' and no other reasons. Yes it was a disappointment but not a surprise."
On May 4, 2020 Peltier went on to add, "...yes the Compassionate Release denial was a disappointment but it was a long shot but that there are other options for release under the CARES ACT so supporters should continue to let BOP know that they are still advocating 4 me. SO, I WAS (sic) WASN'T SURPRISED AS SO MANY OF US ELDER (sic) IN HERE ARE UP AGAINST IT. Otherwise I'm still alive. We do need more letters to the BOP."
It's generous for Peltier to tell us that he is "still alive," while Jack Coler and Ron Williams are still dead. The last time Peltier saw them was at the front end of his AR-15 as he ended their lives with point-blank blasts to their faces.
Let us not forget that horrible scene: Both were shot in the face, yet when their mutilated bodies were found they had been rolled over to face the ground. The question remains, which one of the AIM cowards did that?
Since Peltier encourages his supporters to write to the Bureau of Prisons for consideration under the CARES ACT, so too can NPPA supporters--Peltier detractors--do the same and explain why Peltier is not a candidate for release, no matter what his age or health issues may be.
The BOP should show Peltier the same level of compassion he gave to two wounded and defenseless human beings: And that would be none.
NPPA supporters please see the April 7th blog and continue to write your own letters to the BOP and Attorney General.
