The MLK assassination conspiracy

The King Center has a web page detailing a 1999 trial in Memphis, Tennessee in which new evidence related to Dr. Martin Luther King's assassination was heard by an independent jury.

At the bottom of the page, Dr. King's family makes the following statements ...

1. We initially requested that a comprehensive investigation be conducted by a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, independent of the government, because we do not believe that, in such a politically-sensitive matter, the government is capable of investigating itself.

2. The type of independent investigation we sought was denied by the federal government. But in our view, it was carried out, in a Memphis courtroom, during a month-long trial by a jury of 12 American citizens who had no interest other than ascertaining the truth. (Kings v. Jowers)

3. After hearing and reviewing the extensive testimony and evidence, which had never before been tested under oath in a court of law, it took the Memphis jury only 1½ hours to find that a conspiracy to kill Dr. King did exist. Most significantly, this conspiracy involved agents of the governments of the City of Memphis, the state of Tennessee and the United States of America. The overwhelming weight of the evidence also indicated that James Earl Ray was not the triggerman and, in fact, was an unknowing patsy.

4. We stand by that verdict and have no doubt that the truth about this terrible event has finally been revealed.

5. We urge all interested Americans to read the transcript of the trial on the King Center website and consider the evidence, so they can form their own unbiased conclusions.

It is and has been since 1999, the position of the King family that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated as part of a government conspiracy reaching into our federal halls of power.

Here is an interview with William Pepper, the King family's attorney in the assassination conspiracy trial. He won the case, and convinced the jury of a government conspiracy to kill Dr. King. The video is 2 hours and 17 minutes long.

One must wonder why this did not cause a major flap in the American media when the trial was ongoing, or when these statements were released. I definitely encourage readers of this blog to read the trial transcript.

Okay, I know. It isn't MLK-Day anymore. I'll get off the tangent. On to other bloggings.
