American Indian Movement – The Incident at Oglala

In the summer of 1975, two FBI agents were shot and killed after pursuing a vehicle onto private property near the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. This had come after several tense years of strife on the reservation, including the armed Wounded Knee standoff where the FBI encircled for 71 days members of the American Indian Movement who were protesting the corruption of the US-government friendly tribal leader’s administration. Although two of the AIM members put on trial for the FBI agents’ murder were acquitted, the third, Leonard Peltier, is still serving two consecutive life sentences in federal penitentiary despite lack of evidence of his guilt and intimidation and false witness made by the prosecution.

      P.S. I recommend Fr Tom Hopko’s talk on “The Abolition of Man” (again). Great talk, 90 minutes, it’s on TouYube and likely to be elsewhere.

      Brutality operates on many different levels, and the more unseen warfare is, the more brutal it really can be.
