Stop what you are doing.
If you don’t want to read, I’ll explain the key bullet points, but please read them afterwords:
This is not “we didn’t protect him enough.”
This is not “the government screwed up some random detail or accidentally let his killer loose.”
The 111th Military Intelligence had a team taking pictures of his balcony during the assassination.
They brought in a Special Forces 8-Man Sniper Team from the 20th.
Memphis Police withdrew their regular protection detail from him.
A jury of 12 people, six black and six white, found the United States Government guilty of conspiracy to commit murder.
YOUR GOVERNMENT. MY GOVERNMENT. THE GOVERNMENT OF, BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE, SHOT AND KILLED DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING. And the media never reported the case.
MLK was ASSASSINATED. By a government YOU PAY FOR.
I hate those posts where someone tries to pressure you into reblogging. I almost never ask you to reblog.
This shit is important.
Reblog this. I don’t care what kind of blog you have. I don’t care what you normally talk about.
this is always on reblog
The problem with most of those sources is that they refer to each other. BUT, I do find this believable simply because it’s on the King Center’s web site, and they do provide an actual transcript of the trial.
This is fucked up.
Holy shit. I mean I really do NOT like the government but this… Wow.
This is a proven fact and we’re on record affirming that this is how it happened. This certainly doesn’t encourage people to become advocates for social justice, but we should do so regardless of possible consequences.
just so you know #MLKDay
