America's peaceful transition of power is littered with the assassinated bodies of opposition leaders and their voices. In fact the decade of the 60's should be called the assassination decade, the great generation showed no mercy.

My hope is that, one day, they will be Nationally Exposed, and Punished, for their Crime against Dr. King, his Family, his Fellow Citizens, We the People and Our Country.
