This the one of the most repulsive cases of injustice in United Snakes of Amerikkklan jailed since I was in high School and I'm an elder now for a crime that was committed against him. The two FBI officers were investigating a pair of stolen Snake skin boots which is not a felony and the only the federal government can come onto a Reservation is if a felony has happened. They were trespassing and fired at an encampment of women and children so we had a right for self defense. We should all turn our attention to this case as we have done before for people not in this country (ie Nelson Mandela). I'm tired of being the foreigners in our own land and every race owes the Native population respect.
