Petition for a Grant of Executive Clemency to Leonard Peltier.
Leonard Peltier, an innocent man, was convicted for the 1975 shooting deaths of two agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. U.S. prosecutors have repeatedly admitted that they did not and cannot prove Peltier's guilt and the appellate courts have cited numerous instances of investigative and prosecutorial misconduct in this case. As late as November 2003, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals acknowledged that "…Much of the government’s behavior at the Pine Ridge Reservation and its prosecution of Mr. Peltier is to be condemned. The government withheld evidence. It intimidated witnesses. These facts are not disputed."
The courts claim they lack the power to right this wrong. But the President can. Please sign my petition, call the White House comment line and tell President Obama to grant clemency to Leonard Peltier at 202-456-1111 or 202-456-1112, go to www.whitehouse.gov/contact, email the president at: email@example.com contact the White House via facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/WhiteHouse
