Patty, he is an Indian convicted of killing two FBI agents on the Pine Ridge Reservation a long time ago. I believe he is seeking a pardon for his crime.

Many, many people believe he was not given a fair trial and that evidence was suppressed. He says he is not guilty. The FBI is equally adament that he was/is guilty and vehemently oppose him even being considered for parole. There are lots of websites for both viewpoints.

My hometown was lees than 30 miles from Wounded Knee. Many "whites" were threatened with physical violence during the 1973 uprising. Mr. Pelletier being a liar and a murderer, needs to take responsibility for his actions. The American public needs to wake up and quit defending a person who brutally murders two Federal agents and expects us to believe he has been wrongly persecuted by the "white man".
