Peace and Blessings to All.

Leonard Peltier’s first full parole hearing was held in 1993, at
which time his case was continued for a 15-year reconsideration. On
Wednesday, it was announced (in Portland, OR) that Mr. Peltier has
recently applied for and been granted a parole hearing. The hearing
is scheduled for July 27, 2009. All supporters are encouraged to
step up their efforts in support of parole for Leonard Peltier.

Letters in Support of Parole

It is really important that everyone write letters in support of
Leonard’s petition for parole. These letters can be quite simple
and should cover the basic points important for parole decisions. A
sample letter follows. Feel free to use it, but know that it’s even
better if you write one in your own words. Be courteous and concise.

Get as many people to sign similar letters, as well. Carry a sheaf of
spare letters with you. Get one signature per letter, that is, rather
than using a petition format. Mail them to the Parole Commission,
but also send copies to the Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee
(contact information below).

Re: LEONARD PELTIER #89637-132

Dear Commissioners,

Convicted in connection with the deaths on June 26, 1975, of
Ronald Williams and Jack Coler, agents of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation, Mr. Leonard Peltier remains imprisoned at the United
States Penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.

The court record in this case clearly shows that government
prosecutors have long held that they do not know who killed Mr. Coler
and Mr. Williams nor what role Leonard Peltier “may have” played
in the tragic shoot-out.

Further, in a decision filed by the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals
on December 18, 2002, Mr. Peltier’s sentences “were imposed in
violation of [Peltier’s] due process rights because they were based
on information that was false due to government misconduct,” and,
according to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, in 2003: “.Much
of the government’s behavior at the Pine Ridge Reservation and its
prosecution of Leonard Peltier is to be condemned. The government
withheld evidence. It intimidated witnesses. These facts are not

Despite these admissions, Leonard Peltier has served over 33 years
in prison.

After careful consideration of the facts in Leonard Peltier’s case,
I have concluded that Leonard Peltier does not represent a risk to
the public. First, Leonard Peltier has no prior convictions and has
advocated for non-violence throughout his prison term. Furthermore,
Leonard Peltier has been a model prisoner. He has received excellent
evaluations from his work supervisors on a regular basis. He
continues to mentor young Native prisoners, encouraging them to
lead clean and sober lives. He has used his time productively,
disciplining himself to be a talented painter and an expressive
writer. Although Leonard Peltier maintains that he did not kill
the agents, he has openly expressed remorse and sadness over
their deaths.

Most admirably, Mr. Peltier contributes regular support to those
in need. He donates his paintings to charities including battered
women’s shelters, half way houses, alcohol and drug treatment
programs, and Native American scholarship funds. He also coordinates
an annual holiday gift drive for the children of the Pine Ridge
Indian Reservation.

Leonard Peltier is widely recognized for his good deeds and in
turn has won several awards including the North Star Frederick
Douglas Award; Federation of Labour (Ontario, Canada) Humanist of
the Year Award; Human Rights Commission of Spain International
Human Rights Prize; and 2004 Silver Arrow Award for Lifetime
Achievement. Mr. Peltier also has been nominated for the Nobel
Peace Prize six times.

Leonard Peltier is now over 60 years of age-a great-grandfather-and
suffers from partial blindness, diabetes, a heart condition, and
high blood pressure..

I recognize the grave nature of the events of June 26, 1975,
and I extend my deepest sympathy to the families of those who
died that day. However, I find aspects of this case to also be of
concern and I believe Leonard Peltier deserves to be reunited with
his family and allowed to live the remaining years of his life in
peace. I also believe that, rather than presenting a threat to the
public, Mr. Peltier’s release would help to heal a wound that has
long impeded better relations between the federal government and
American Indians.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely yours,

information including your name, address, phone number(s) and e-mail
address if applicable.

Describe your relationship with Leonard — how do you know him, for
how long, etc. Write about his character, and his accomplishments
both before and during imprisonment. Discuss improvements made
since being incarcerated such as education and his philanthropic
work. Discuss Leonard’s positive attitude and, despite his innocence,
the fact that he has openly expressed remorse and sadness over the
deaths that occurred on June 26, 1975.

Finish your support letter by telling the Parole Board how you
will support Leonard once he is granted parole. Your support might
be financial, such as a place to live, use of a vehicle, or help

Cherokee Mother Flees Police With Her Children to protect them

Shirley Riggs: A Cherokee Woman and Mothers’ Trail of Tears Story In Jackson County Missouri.

Report Page: http://www.operationmorningstar.org/shirley_riggs.htm

First, let me begin by saying that Shirley Riggs, her mother, and I met when they came to a garage sale I was having. I told them what I did with Operation Morning Star. About 2 months later, she returned and asked help concerning her Cherokee heritage. It was in this conversation that she shared her and her children’s  “Nightmare from Jackson County Street” experiences.

I spent a number of quality hours at her home going over all the documents and history of this case in contrast to the local “wannabe” media pundits of flagrant stupidity such as the “legend in her own mind” Betsy Webster from KCTV Channel 5 who reported IGNORANCE on this case.

Now, because she has fled for GOOD REASONS as outlined below, it is on record that the children of Shirley Riggs, when found, will be placed in the home of one who was PRESENT at the SAME HOME where the sexual abuse of Shirley’s children initially took place when she was living there! Say Leslie Riggs. This is what Shirley became aware of and WHY she fled!

Judge Nixon in the example of the history of the United States Government removing Indian Children from their homes and placing them in abusive conditions and among child abusing pedophiles (Catholic Church Style), he gave custody to Albert the Pedophile Riggs and placed her children in the home of the VERY FAMILY containing the “sexual abusers”. 

Also, it is DOCUMENTED that NIXON WAS FULLY AWARE OF THE SEXUAL ABUSE REPORTS CONCERNING RAY AND ALBERT RIGGS! But for whatever “perverted reason”, Nixon did not even hesitate to give custody of Shirley’s children to these deviates and their family! MIND YOU…the children were still with Shirley in Oregon. She had never ever been charged with abuse, neglect, NOTHING in 3 years…but wait…there is a PLAN to do just that by this “porno-pedo promoting/supporting conglomerate of evil” and sanctioned by Judge Stephen Nixon!  So ask yourself, how do you think Shirley Riggs felt when she heard this?

The next thing she knew, the pedophile and sexual abuser Albert Riggs and “wife” then came to Oregon and LEGALLY KIDNAPPED HER CHILDREN thanks to NIXON. And because Shirley knowing what had happened to them before in the home of the Riggs’s…she went to Missouri and RESCUED THEM from the sexual abusers of her children. But she is the CRIMINAL NOW…right? Then Nixon ordered her to be extradited after being arrested and THIS CHEROKEE MOTHER SPENDS SIX MONTHS IN JAIL ONLY BECAUSE SHE WAS PROTECTING HER CHILDREN FROM SEXUAL PREDATORS…LIKE NOW EVEN!

After getting out of the “Jackson County Concentration Camp”, Nixon put on “house arrest” with an “ankle bracelet”. Then he ordered her to participate in mandated “counseling” under children DFS umbrella. REALLY TAKE NOTE OF THIS because this experience REVEALS THE TRUE HEART AND SPIRIT OF THE MISSOURI DEPARTMENT OF FAMILY SERVICES! This “White Western Pro Pedophile Organization” called the DFS then sent her a PRO CHILD PORNOGRAPHIC COUNSELOR to get “psychiatric evaluation counseling” from! 

During the interview, Mr. Sisk, representing the Missouri Department of Child Services, declared that his not quite 3 year old daughter was simply being “normal” when she MASTERBATED on a stuffed animal! (Of course we know that this child was not being coached in any way, that this was “natural” on HER part, and that “daddy” was not sitting next to her having her touch HIS BARE PENIS while watching XXX PORN.

So Judge Nixon and Prosecutor Eason, you need to know why all of this REALLY HAPPENED and take a second look at this case because for YOU to believe and collude with liars and sexual predators has made you as guilty as them and WORSE because YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETER…but it appears that you could care less about this Cherokee woman’s life and that of her children in how you continually and intentionally ruled against her time and again unto her UNJUST incarceration and removal of her children from her and allowing  for the subsequent “genocidal hell” they have suffered at the hands of the NAZI MISSOURI DEAPRTMENT OF DETROY FAMILIES SOCIALIST SERVICES!

In fact, you are no different than the pedophile and sexual abusers in this case and just because you have as friends “DSS” lawyers who you KNOW have conspired against Shirley Riggs and who are in collusion with the very abusers themselves. you are MORE GUILTY!
