As the trial of George Floyd’s alleged murderer proceeds in the glare of the spotlight of national attention, we recall (from FTR#1133 ) that Dr. Martin Luther King couldn’t breathe either, when the breathing tube was removed from the gravely wounded, but still living, Dr. King and a pillow was put over his face to suffocate him.
” . . . . This caused her [nurse Lula Mae Shelby], on the way out, to glance back over her shoulder, and see that the breathing tube had been removed and Dr. Bland put a pillow on and over the face of Dr. King. . . .”
Granted that the assassination of Dr. King didn’t take place on the global stage of social media, it is still disturbing and–to us at least–shocking that there is so little public discussion of the reality of that event, particularly in the African-American and so-called “progressive sector.”
In addition to the program cited above, we have detailed Dr. King’s assassination in numerous broadcasts.
In AFA #8  (recorded in April of 1985 and added to episodically over the decades), we presented successive layers of information, laid down rather like sedimentary layers deposited by a large body of water over time.
In FTR#46 , we detailed the use of U.S. Special Forces soldiers as a back-up sniper team in Memphis, as well as Jesse Jackson’s significant role in helping to set up the man whose mantle he assumed after King’s death.
When the Green Berets began being eliminated in an apparent “clean-up” operation, they approached the heroic Dr. William Pepper, who bravely, heroically chronicled their stories.
