Martin Luther King’s family and his attorney, William F. Pepper, won a civil trial that found US government agencies guilty in the wrongful death of Martin Luther King. The 1999 trial, King Family versus Jowers and Other Unknown Co-Conspirators, is the only trial ever conducted on the assassination of Dr. King. The King family’s attempts for a criminal trial were denied, as suspect James Ray’s recant of what he claimed was a false confession was denied.
For comparison, please consider the concentrated media coverage of O.J. Simpson’s trials.
The overwhelming evidence of government complicity introduced and agreed as comprehensively valid by the jury includes the 111th Military Intelligence Group were sent to Dr. King’s location, and that the usual police protection was pulled away just before the assassination. Military Intelligence set-up photographers on a roof of a fire station with a clear view to Dr. King’s balcony. 20th Special Forces Group had an 8-man sniper team at the assassination location on that day. Memphis police ordered the scene where multiple witnesses reported as the source of shooting cut down of their bushes that would have hid a sniper team. Along with sanitizing a crime scene, police abandoned investigative procedure to interview witnesses who lived by the scene of the shooting.
The shadow government responsible for the deaths of US civil rights leaders in the 1960s didn't simply disappear. Indeed, the troubles we face today are a DIRECT RESULT of these actions, and the contining actions of a very corrupt government.
It is therefore imperative that we speak out against assassinations, and also false flag terrorism, so we can put a stop to this deadly and destructive game. We must speak out in the face of the mainstream media silence on these most important issues ...
