Dr. King assassinated by U.S. government: King Family civil trial verdict. Demanding .01% arrests yet for ongoing lying conspirators for war, looting, and murders of Patriots?

“How long shall they kill our prophets while we stand aside and look?” ~ Bob Marley, Redemption Song

“We have done what we can to reveal the truth, and we now urge you as members of the media, and we call upon elected officials, and other persons of influence to do what they can to share the revelation of this case to the widest possible audience.”~ Coretta Scott King, Martin's wife, King Family Press Conference, Dec. 9, 1999.

"We as a family have done our part. We have carried this mantle for as long as we can carry it. We know what happened. It is on public record... Any serious researcher who wants to know what happened can find out.” ~ Dexter Scott King, Martin's son and King Center CEO

For ten years I’ve done what I can to publicly communicate the facts of the King Family civil trial verdict of US government guilt to assassinate Martin. The King Center documents the family’s civil trial that found US government agencies guilty of assassinating Martin in 1968.

The evidence of guilt is overwhelming:
US 111th Military Intelligence Group were at Dr. King’s location during the assassination.
20th Special Forces Group had an 8-man sniper team at the assassination location on that day.
Usual Memphis Police special body guards were advised they “weren’t needed” on the day of the assassination.
Regular and constant police protection for Dr. King was removed from protecting Dr. King an hour before the assassination.
Military Intelligence set-up photographers on the roof of a fire station with clear view to Dr. King’s balcony.
Dr. King’s room was changed from a secure 1st-floor room to an exposed balcony room.
Memphis police ordered the scene where multiple witnesses reported as the source of shooting cut down of their bushes that would have hid a sniper.
Along with sanitizing a crime scene, police abandoned investigative procedure to interview witnesses who lived by the scene of the shooting.
The rifle Mr. Ray delivered was not matched to the bullet that killed Dr. King, and was not sighted to accurately shoot.
The Corbett Report's 51-minute documentation is the best I've found:

Global Research's interview with Dr. William Pepper (King Family attorney) is the best I've found for readers to walk through the evidence.
More video and walkthrough of evidence

Dr. King’s 2-minute message to you (full 1967 speech to end the Vietnam War):

Dr. Martin Luther King’s family and personal friend/attorney, William F. Pepper, won a civil trial that found US government agencies guilty of Martin’s assassination/wrongful death. The 1999 trial, King Family versus Jowers and Other Unknown Co-Conspirators, is the only trial ever conducted on the assassination of Dr. King. The King Center fully documents the case, with full trial transcript (to more fully explain the following summary of trial evidence, here is the best article I’ve found).

James Corbett interviewing Bill Pepper from April, 2017 (70 minutes):

RT interviewing Bill Pepper for ten minutes:

Obviously, the trial evidence demands arrests in our world of the present of those .01% liars in government and corporate media who act as ongoing criminal accomplices after the fact to protect those who assassinated Martin. Corporate media and US “leaders” ongoingly “fake news” the US public with absolutely refuted claims in this and literally ~100 other central and game-changing facts of history.
Also, the FBI acted to cause Dr. King’s death by suicide. The FBI illegally spied on Dr. King, used data in attempt to split leadership, and sent Dr. King a letter promising to expose alleged sexual misconduct. This was part of the FBI’s illegal COINTELPRO program.

The King family’s attempts for a criminal trial were always denied by state and federal government. Claimed suspect, James Ray, said that his government-appointed attorney told him to sign a guilty plea to prevent the death penalty and threatened arrests of his father and brother as co-conspirators for his only part in the assassination plot: delivering a rifle. Mr. Ray produced a letter from his attorney stating the promise that Mr. Ray would receive a trial. When Mr. Ray discovered that he was solely blamed for Dr. King’s assassination and would never receive a trial, Mr. Ray’s subsequent recants of his guilty plea and requests for trial were denied.

The US government also denied the King family’s requests for independent investigation of the assassination, despite the overwhelming evidence produced at the 1999 civil trial. Dr. King’s wife, Coretta, spent more than twice the number of years she was married to Martin working to get a criminal trial for her husband’s assassination.

Importantly, the US government has never presented any evidence subject to challenge that substantiates their claim that Mr. Ray assassinated Dr. King.

The King family believes the government’s motivation to murder Dr. King was to prevent his imminent camp-in/Occupy at Washington, D.C. until the Vietnam War was ended and those resources directed to end poverty and invest in US hard and soft infrastructure.

As a professional teacher of US history and government, the most accurate description I have is that the US devolved into a rogue state empire (link with abundant documented evidence and video walkthrough).
US corporate media did not cover the civil trial, interview the King family, and textbooks omit this information. This is crucial evidence of a controlled corporate media rejecting coverage of a game-changing story. Journalist and author, James Douglass:
“I can hardly believe the fact that, apart from the courtroom participants, only Memphis TV reporter Wendell Stacy and I attended from beginning to end this historic three-and-one-half week trial. Because of journalistic neglect scarcely anyone else in this land of ours even knows what went on in it. After critical testimony was given in the trial’s second week before an almost empty gallery, Barbara Reis, U.S. correspondent for the Lisbon daily Publico who was there several days, turned to me and said, ‘Everything in the U.S. is the trial of the century. O.J. Simpson’s trial was the trial of the century. Clinton’s trial was the trial of the century. But this is the trial of the century, and who’s here?’ ”
For comparison, please consider the media coverage of O.J. Simpson’s trials:
“Media coverage of the Simpson trial, which began in January 1995, was unlike any other. Over two thousand reporters covered the trial, and 80 miles of cable was required to allow nineteen television stations to cover the trial live to 91 percent of the American viewing audience. When the verdict was finally read on October 3, 1995, some 142 million people listened or watched. It seemed the nation stood still, divided along racial lines as to the defendant’s guilt or innocence. During and after the trial, over eighty books were published about the event by most everyone involved in the Simpson case.”
Coretta Scott King was certain of the evidence after 30 years of consideration from the 1968 assassination to the 1999 trial:
“For a quarter of a century, Bill Pepper conducted an independent investigation of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. He opened his files to our family, encouraged us to speak with the witnesses, and represented our family in the civil trial against the conspirators. The jury affirmed his findings, providing our family with a long-sought sense of closure and peace, which had been denied by official disinformation and cover-ups. Now the findings of his exhaustive investigation and additional revelations from the trial are presented in the pages of this important book. We recommend it highly to everyone who seeks the truth about Dr. King’s assassination.” — Coretta Scott King.
The US Department of Justice issued a report in 2000 that explained their claimed investigation into their own possible guilt in the assassination. They concluded that they found no evidence to warrant further investigation. Dr. King’s son issued the following statement rebuking the “self-study” rather than independent investigation:

“We learned only hours before the Justice Department press conference that they were releasing the report of their results of their ‘limited investigation,’ which covered only two areas of new evidence concerning the assassination of Dr. King. We had requested that we be given a copy of the report a few days in advance so that we might have had the opportunity to review it in detail. Since that courtesy was not extended to us, we are only able at this time to state the following:

We initially requested that a comprehensive investigation be conducted by a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, independent of the government, because we do not believe that, in such a politically-sensitive matter, the government is capable of investigating itself.
The type of independent investigation we sought was denied by the federal government. But in our view, it was carried out, in a Memphis courtroom, during a month-long trial by a jury of 12 American citizens who had no interest other than ascertaining the truth. (Kings v. Jowers)
After hearing and reviewing the extensive testimony and evidence, which had never before been tested under oath in a court of law, it took the Memphis jury only one (1) hour to find that a conspiracy to kill Dr. King did exist. Most significantly, this conspiracy involved agents of the governments of the City of Memphis, the state of Tennessee and the United States of America. The overwhelming weight of the evidence also indicated that James Earl Ray was not the triggerman and, in fact, was an unknowing patsy.
We stand by that verdict and have no doubt that the truth about this terrible event has finally been revealed.
We urge all interested Americans to read the transcript of the trial on the King Center website and consider the evidence, so they can form their own unbiased conclusions.

Although we cooperated fully with this limited investigation, we never really expected that the government report would be any more objective than that which has resulted from any previous official investigation.”

Let’s summarize: Under US Civil Law, covert US government agencies were found guilty of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King. Dr. King was the leading figure of the Civil Rights Movement, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, and widely recognized as one of the world’s greatest speakers for what it means to be human. The family’s conclusion as to motive was to prevent Dr. King from ending the Vietnam War because the government wanted to continue its ongoing illegal covert and overt military operations to control foreign governments and their resources.

It is therefore a factual statement that under US Civil Law, the US government assassinated Dr. King.
People of sufficient intellectual integrity and moral courage to apply critical thinking skills will embrace the trial evidence and testimony, jury conclusion, and King family analysis as appropriate and helpful information in seeking the facts.

People who at least temporarily reject challenging information out of fear might say something like, “The government killed Dr. King? That’s a crazy conspiracy theory!”

Let’s consider that statement.

When someone says that a body of evidence is “crazy,” or a “conspiracy theory” (meaning an irrational claim easily refuted by the evidence) that’s a claim. With a claim comes a burden of proof. In this case, the person would have to demonstrate command of the facts to explain and prove why the evidence from the civil trial is somehow “crazy” and refute the evidence.

If the person can do this, it would be tremendously helpful in understanding the facts. However, we know from our experience that such statements almost always have zero factual support, and that the person making such a claim literally doesn’t know what they’re talking about.
We also know from our experience, a person making such a statement is really voicing an emotional reaction something closer to, “The government killed Dr. King? Ok, I read and understood the paragraphs about the trial and evidence. I read Mrs. King’s and her son’s statement. I haven’t invested the time to verify how valid that information is. I’m not stupid, but because the implications of what that means is so disturbing, I’m going to deny anything about it could possibly be true as my first response. If I’m going to continue being in denial and refuse to discuss the evidence, I’ll attack the messenger.”

We also need to consider the lack of coverage by US corporate media of this compelling evidence, trial verdict, and King family testimony from over 30 years’ analysis of the facts. Recall the evidence of US corporate media reporting being infiltrated by CIA agents to propagandize Americans’ access to information. This included the Director of the CIA’s admission to Congress that they have over 400 agents working in corporate media to make the US public believe what the CIA wants them to believe.

In 2006, George Washington University used a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain the US military’s “Information Operations Roadmap.” This formerly secret and approved document details present US government strategies to generate propaganda, and then attack Internet alternative media that provides dangerous facts and discussion. The military promoted the term, “Fight the net.”

Although I won’t enter the burden of proof here, you may know that there are similar and related bodies of evidence that the US government assassinated other American leaders, such as President Kennedy. The 1975 Senate Church Committee disclosed that the US government initiated and helped assassination attempts on multiple foreign heads of state.

If we were discussing how the population of some other nation could employ critical thinking skills to understand current events from anytime in history, we would certainly understand the importance to anticipate disinformation from government, danger of controlled media, and assassination as a political weapon.

Failure to do so would appropriately elicit the label attributed to the first dictator of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Lenin. Such people who believe what their government tells them when the history and present have overwhelming objective evidence to explain, document, and prove that the government is typical of so many other historical self-serving oligarchies are:
“Useful idiots.”
To the extent the United States today is any different from all other nations and all other times is up to your exercise of critical thinking skills.

Dr. King’s 47-minute speech to Stanford University, 1967:

Endgame: US military, government employees, and real Americans demanding .01% arrests as OBVIOUS lawful remedy to stop war-murdering millions, harming billions, looting trillions

Updated from a 2015 essay: Awakened Americans do not want revolution in any sense beyond the Latin etymology “to turn around” from the crimes and lies we explain, document, and prove beyond reasonable doubt documented throughout this essay.

Awakened Americans simply want our most important laws honored by law enforcement and military with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Our most important laws center in stopping government mass-murder (war), parasitically looting the public (economic fraud), and defending inalienable rights.

Awakened Americans point to literally ~100 game-changing and Emperor’s New Clothes obvious areas of crimes and lies that require criminal arrests from those authorized to do so. The costs of these crimes: millions killed, billions harmed, and trillions looted year, after year, after year, after year, that will continue to damn our children and grandchildren unless these crimes are lawfully stopped by arrests.

HAVE YOU NOTICED that almost each and every right has been taken from you with the age-old dictator excuse of “national security”?

Dictatorship means a .01% dictate that law is whatever they say, and your rights are what you're told they are and mean.

Government by dicts has been the historical result of the public’s lack of critical thinking skills to discern that “official messages”are propaganda, with constitutional republics becoming tragic-comedies. Roman historians and the US Founding Generation wrote as powerfully as one can imagine to warn present and future human beings of this danger.

All human beings with a high school-level of education can recognize Emperor’s New Clothes facts of criminal dictatorial government and propaganda if they’re pointed-to and if the human beings care to look. This is a fundamental test of critical thinking skills in the real world, with basic education to discern objective and independently verifiable facts from whatever bullshit rhetoric the .01%’s focus groups conclude most likely to sell (thank you, Professor Frankfurt, for your bestseller making BS an academic term).

Indeed, the History-Social Science Framework for California Public Schools, pgs. 2, 7-8, charges teachers to:

“As educators in the field of history–social science, we want our students to perceive the complexity of social, economic, and political problems. We want them to have the ability to differentiate between what is important and what is unimportant. We want them to know their rights and responsibilities as American citizens. We want them to understand the meaning of the Constitution as a social contract that defines our democratic government and guarantees our individual rights. We want them to respect the right of others to differ with them. We want them to take an active role as citizens and to know how to work for change in a democratic society. We want them to understand the value, the importance, and the fragility of democratic institutions. We want them to realize that only a small fraction of the world’s population (now or in the past) has been fortunate enough to live under a democratic form of government, and we want them to understand the conditions that encourage democracy to prosper. We want them to develop a keen sense of ethics and citizenship. And we want them to care deeply about the quality of life in their community, their nation, and their world.”

For one example of soooo many warnings of the fragility and rareness of freedom, on September 18, 1787, just after signing the US Constitution, Benjamin Franklin met with members of the press. He was asked what kind of government America would have. Franklin: “A republic, if you can keep it.” In his speech to the Constitutional Convention, Franklin admonished:

“This [U.S. Constitution] is likely to be administered for a course of years and then end in despotism… when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other.” – The Quotable Founding Fathers, pg. 39.

American school children learn “limited government” is an idea basic and central for any people to live free from dictatorial government. Limited government means:
Government power is limited by clear and explicit areas within a constitution.
These limits are crystal clear and analogous to the clarity of basic rules in sports to ensure fair play by all.
Government violation of limit(s) initiates all with Oaths to the US Constitution to speak-up, refuse any unconstitutional order because they are void of authority, and demand arrest(s) of those who act for unlimited/dictatorial government over a free people.
In contrast, absence of limited government means government is unlimited; that is, with powers of whatever is dictated (literally said) whenever said. Government without limits is therefore a dictatorship.
All the above is relatively modern history I have personally researched as a professional historian to explain and document. I am absolutely confident of the comprehensive factual accuracy in the above links that anyone can independently verify, and will eagerly debate anyone who challenges. This documentation is the product of 42 years now in civic activism, academic study, and professional practice. This includes 18 years working with both parties' "leaderships" for US domestic and foreign policy to end poverty that led to two UN summits for heads of state, with good news that ~90% of the thousands of Members of Congress we worked with keeping their word to vote full-funding to end poverty, and ~10% in "leadership" positions who would only and always lie and renege on all promises (including all Bushes and Clintons). My personal conclusions:
Earth suffers from ongoing rogue state empires for .01% parasitic and psychopathic domination, with the US as the current leading neocolonial power.
These lying leaders want poverty to force humans into serving the empire rather than suffer the fate of those not serving for slave-level wages.
Humanity is in an Emperor's New Clothes moment (more analogies here): so many messengers are pointing and clearly voicing these facts anyone can see who cares to look, and for now the psychopathic parade of evil continues.
Because .01% testimony about history is proven as lies coming from Orwellian anti-leaders (or real leaders for evil/loveless self-service), rational people must reject all other testimony from them as unreliable.

This should be obvious.

It should also be obvious that people competent to live with freedom must demand .01% arrests for ongoing crimes annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions.

Demanding .01% arrests

As a National Board Certified Teacher in History, Government, and Economics, I factually assert that rogue state empire is the most accurate description of the US. I will debate anyone, anytime on this point. Please don’t believe me (or anyone); look for yourself, including in professionally thoroughly documented writing, and this peer-reviewed and published paper, this White Paper circulated among Members of Congress, or this 56-minute interview to define rogue state empire with three case studies:

You don't need further data than the above, and that said, there's more in abundance:
When Americans are told an election is defined by touching a computer screen without a countable receipt that can be verified, they are being told a criminal lie to allow election fraud. This is self-evident, but Princeton, Stanford, and the President of the American Statistical Association are among the leaders pointing to the obvious (and here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here). Again, no professional would/can argue an election is legitimate when there is nothing for anyone to count. The facts show Bernie Sanders won the Democratic Primary election, and claims by Democratic “leadership” of Russian election “meddling” are without factual documentation.
US military now illegally occupy eight bases in Syria (and here), with escalating bombing of Syria and Iraq of over 4,000 bombs/month, and over 84,000 since 2014. The US acknowledges ~500 civilian deaths from these bombs, with independent count of ~750 just in June 2017, and causing the worst war-destruction since Vietnam.
Among dozens of independent writers, I’ve documented that all “reasons” for wars on Iran, Syria, and Russia are easily proved lies (recently, here, here, here, and going back to 2005), with US Department of illegal Wars of Aggression (so-called “Defense”) claiming to have “lost” $65,000 for every US household.
The destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution, and in Orwellian inversion of limited government.
Iran has never threatened to “wipe Israel off the map” and only has IAEA-verified legal energy and medicine programs with nuclear materials. Trump and corporate media continues and escalates easily-verified lies to threaten more illegal war on Iran.
Israel engages in lie-started and illegal War of Aggression on Gaza; ironically the largest concentration camp in world history. This is also easy to verify.
Categories of crime include:
Wars of Aggression (the worst crime a nation can commit).
Likely treason for lying to US military, ordering unlawful attack and invasions of foreign lands, and causing thousands of US military deaths.
Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).
US military, law enforcement, and all with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, face an endgame choice:
Demand arrests, with those with lawful authority to enact it. An arrest is the lawful action to stop apparent crimes, with the most serious crimes documented here meaning the most serious need for arrests.
Watch the US escalate its rogue state crimes that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions.
In just 90 seconds, former US Marine Ken O’Keefe powerfully states how you may choose to voice “very obvious solutions”: arrest the criminal leaders (video starts at 20:51, then finishes this episode of Cross Talk):
