Background:
Native American activist Leonard Peltier has spent over 40 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Prosecutors and federal agents manufactured evidence against him (including the so-called “murder weapon”); hid proof of his innocence; presented false testimony obtained through torturous interrogation techniques; ignored court orders; and lied to the jury. People are commonly set free due to a single constitutional violation, but Peltier—innocent and faced with a staggering number of constitutional violations—has yet to receive equal justice.

Listen to the new The Leonard Peltier Podcast at http://leonard.buzzsprout.comIn 1977, Native American activist Leonard Peltier was sentenced to consecutive life terms for killing two FBI agents. Then in 2000, a Freedom of Information Act disclosure proved the Feds had framed him. But Leonard’s still in prison. This is the story of what happened on the Pine Ridge Reservation half a century ago—and the man who’s still behind bars for a crime he didn’t. commit. https://twitter.com/leonard_pod
