Surprise every Native American, @POTUS

Leonard Pelteir [sic] Released “Day of Mourning” Statement on Thursday

“February 6, 2016, will make it 40 straight years in here. Under the laws I was indicted with, a life term was seven years. I have served over six life sentences! As you know, I was sentenced to only two. To Native Peoples, this is also not surprising. In fact, this is something that happens on a regular basis throughout Indian Country. And, as always, this is not acceptable to us. So we protest, and we protest some more.”



When fourteen years passed and Leonard Peltier was still incarcerated, he became a political prisoner (if he wasn’t one to begin with, as many of us believe).

President Obama has been stingy with pardoning political prisoners, and he shouldn’t be. He continued previous administrations’ egregious empire building, and may face consequences for it … it’s common sense that those who know they may need mercy should be generous with granting it.

President Obama should surprise Native Americans by pardoning Leonard Peltier on Monday.
