Bobby Kennedy assassination controversy

New York Attorney William Pepper says a second gunman — and not his client, Sirhan Sirhan — shot and killed the U.S. presidential candidate, Senator Robert F. Kennedy (D-NY), in June 1968. Pepper says he’ll try to obtain a new trial for Sirhan.
Pepper’s evidence of Sirhan’s wrongful conviction incorporates a number of different things including audio recording preservation of the sounds of the actual shots fired in the Bobby Kennedy shooting.
Researchers Robert J. Joling and Philip Van Praag say a recently-discovered audio tape known as the Pruszynski recording shows there was a second gunman in this second Kennedy assassination. Pepper says he’s quite impressed with the findings of Van Praag and Joling.
On April 4 1968, Martin Luther King was in Memphis supporting a workers’ strike. By nightfall, army snipers were in position, military officers were on a nearby roof with cameras, and Lloyd Jowers had been paid to remove the gun after the fatal shot was fired. When the dust had settled, King had been hit and a clean-up operation was set in motion-James Earl Ray was framed, the crime scene was destroyed, and witnesses were killed. William Pepper, attorney and friend of King, has conducted a thirty-year investigation into his assassination. In 1999, Loyd Jowers and other co-conspirators were brought to trial in a civil action suit on behalf of the King family. Seventy witnesses set out the details of a conspiracy that involved J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI, Richard Helms and the CIA, the military, Memphis police, and organized crime. The jury took an hour to find for the King family. In An Act of State, you finally have the truth before you-how the US government shut down a movement for social change by stopping its leader dead in his tracks.
