FLASHBACK: Jury Finds MLK Was Killed by Government Conspiracy, King Family Agrees

This month, we celebrated what would have been Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 84th birthday, were he alive today. In honor of this occasion, I'd like to first highlight this short video, produced by journalist Barrie Zwicker, which provides a clear, concise overview of the realities regarding the assassination of this national civil rights and anti-war icon on April 4, 1968. (The book mentioned in the video is An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King.)

As explained in the video, decades after King's death, there now exists a large body of evidence indicating that his assassination was not the work of "lone gunman" James Earl Ray, but a conspiracy involving multiple governmental agencies, including the FBI and Memphis Police Department. From March 13, 1969, until the day of his death in 1998, Ray had always maintained that he was an innocent patsy, or scapegoat, who had been duped at the very last minute by the conniving lawyer who had offered to represent him into entering a guilty plea instead of going to trial as planned. (This guilty plea is often misleadingly referred to as a "confession.")

It took Dr. William F. Pepper until 1988, twenty years after King's death, to decide fully and conclusively that Ray was telling the truth.

Pepper had been a close colleague and friend of Dr. King in the final year before his assassination. The two had met in early 1967, after King had seen a series of disturbing and heart-breaking photographs in Ramparts magazine which were taken by Pepper the previous year during a visit to Vietnam. They depicted some of the countless thousands of children who had been killed, maimed, or left homeless by American weapons of war, including napalm and white phosphorus. These and other photos (and anecdotes) shared with him by Pepper deeply moved and disturbed Dr. King, and ultimately had a serious influence on his decision to come out strongly against the war a short time later.

Even before joining the anti-war movement, King had already been a major target of the FBI's COINTELPRO, which engaged in a "no holds barred" covert operation to surveil, intimidate, "completely discredit," and "destroy" him as a leader of the civil rights movement by any means necessary, as documented in great detail years later by the Church Committee in its Final Report. However, when he came out against the Vietnam War, this caused even more concern by "the powers that be." As revealed by the Church Committee (Volume 7, Book III, p. 173-174):

The documentary Evidence of Revision

Also has a section about MLK & his assassination. It's a really long six part series that touches on JFK, RFK, etc. The MLK section is the last part (Part 6).

Reminds me

Of current engagement of a "no holds barred" covert operation to "completely discredit," and "destroy" Rand Paul as a leader of the liberty movement by any means necessary, as tirelessly seen here.

I was in Memphis last week over the MLK holiday.

The National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel is an awesome spectacle to behold.

I encourage everyone who happens to be in Memphis to visit the Museum. It costs 3 dollars to get inside.

By comparison, I think it costs something like 32.00 to visit Graceland.

You will, unfortunately, see that the museum's exhibits are heavily biased towards James Earl Ray as the "lone assassin". Perhaps, we can help change that perception with a continuing expose of this information.

To be at that spot, though, transcends who was guilty. It is a moving and hallowed area to be within.

One overriding theme of the museum that I found to be important is not just "who" killed Dr. King but "what" killed Dr. King.

We all fully understand that for funding to come from ANY "government" entity the "government line" must be followed (27 million dollars was allocated for this Museum).

Perhaps this is the way the truth is trying to be exposed by those that know. To see the cracked open window as it was, the bath tub, the view of the window from the Motel, and the very close proximity of the shooter and the balcony, is sobering. The bushes and weeds may be gone but the area where the man was seen crouching is still intact, as it was on April 4th, 1968.

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!

Very intersting, thanks for sharing your experience

Interesting to know that those vantage points are all still in tact. Made me think of Bill Hicks talking about The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza.

MLK murder not the work of "lone gunman"

James Earl Ray, but a conspiracy involving multiple governmental agencies, including the FBI and Memphis Police Department.

From March 13, 1969, until the day of his death in 1998, Ray had always maintained that he was an innocent patsy, or scapegoat, who had been duped at the very last minute by the conniving lawyer who had offered to represent him into entering a guilty plea instead of going to trial as planned."

JFK assassination. Lee Harvey Oswald former US Marine killed by Jack Ruby in full view of television cameras. "I did not do it. I'm just a patsy."

Yes, very similiar situation

Here's the video of Oswald stating that he is an innocent patsy:

Coretta Scott King, MLK's wife...

"There is abundant evidence of a major high level conspiracy in the assassination of my husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. And the civil court’s unanimous verdict has validated our belief. I wholeheartedly applaud the verdict of the jury and I feel that justice has been well served in their deliberations. This verdict is not only a great victory for my family, but also a great victory for America. It is a great victory for truth itself.

It is important to know that this was a SWIFT verdict, delivered after about an hour of jury deliberation. The jury was clearly convinced by the extensive evidence that was presented during the trial that, in addition to Mr. Jowers, the conspiracy of the Mafia, local, state and federal government agencies, were deeply involved in the assassination of my husband. The jury also affirmed overwhelming evidence that identified someone else, not James Earl Ray, as the shooter, and that Mr. Ray was set up to take the blame.

I want to make it clear that my family has no interest in retribution. Instead, our sole concern has been that the full truth of the assassination has been revealed and adjudicated in a court of law" (Source link for quote in the article)

Dexter Scott King (MLK's son)...

"...this verdict was not, as has been reported, a conspiracy that said others were involved other than James Earl Ray. That is not what that jury voted on. I want to be clear about that. They clearly voted on evidence that stated that James Earl Ray was not the shooter, that he was set up, that he was an unknown [unwitting] patsy. That Lloyd Jowers, along with his co-conspirators, that the jury also concluded involved state, local and federal agencies."
