Native American Sentenced to Killing FBI Agents in 1977 Asks for Clemency

A group of prominent lawyers is trying to win the freedom of Leonard Peltier, a Lakota tribe member who was convicted of murdering two FBI agents in 1977.

Mother Jones reports that Peltier, who has served 40 of his 71 federal prison sentence, is appealing for clemency and requesting that President Obama make it happen.

“[T]he time has come for the interests of the law enforcement community to be balanced against principles of fundamental fairness, reconciliation, and healing,” the lawyers wrote in a five-page letter to the president. 

“Mr. Peltier has exhausted all appeals and is next eligible to apply for parole in 2024, in the unlikely event that he lives that long,” the letter to Obama states. “The Parole Commission has yielded to the objections of the FBI and DOJ in denying Mr. Peltier’s applications for parole at every turn. Effectively, this Petition represents the last chance in Mr. Peltier’s lifetime for the Government to take curative and/or reconciliatory action.”

To some, Peltier has become international symbol the justice system’s mistreatment of Native Americans. His trial was fraught with irregularities, including witnesses who said they were coerced by the FBI.

Today is the 30th anniversary of a bloody South Florida shootout that left two FBI agents dead and another five agents wounded.

The FBI will mark the anniversary today as Director James Comey plans to speak at a ceremony at the bureau’ office in Miramar, NBC2 reports. 

The shootout with bank robbers occurred in the Miami suburb of Pinecrest on April 11, 1986.

Agents Jerry L. Dove and Benjamin P. Grogan were killed, and so were the robber suspects, William Russell Matix and Michael Lee Platt.

The FBI agents found themselves inadequately armed to fight off the robbers’ heavy fire, prompting the bureau to begin using more powerful handguns.   

Officials: Border Patrol Under Heavy Fire from Mexican Cartels Near Texas

Border Patrol agents came under heavy fire from the Mexican side of the border Friday night, Fox News reports.

Authorities believe .50-caliber rounds were fired at the U.S. side of the riverbank near Rincon Peninsula across from Reynosa, Mexico. Sources told Fox News that the gunfire likely came from Mexican drug cartels.

“We don’t have any armor that can stop a .50-caliber round, so our Border Patrol agents had to take cover when the rounds were richocheting around them,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas said.

“When the shooting stopped, about 40 to 50 people came out on the U.S. side and turned themselves in. So clearly the rounds were being fired to suppress every effort to stop anybody intervening with anyone or anything coming across,” Gohmert added. “We have no idea what or how many or whom came across with the other illegal immigrants.”

The shooting comes at a time when the U.S. is in the midst of an immigration crisis involving unaccompanied children from Central America.
