Incident at Oglala: The Leonard Peltier Story
In 1975, FBI agents illegally entered the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Gunfire erupted and one Native American and two FBI agents were killed. Following a large manhunt, three men were arrested and only one, Leonard Peltier, was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. From the beginning, Peltier's case has been controversial. Many people believe that Peltier is an innocent man. This video examines the case and the real story of what may be one of the most outrageous abuses of justice in American history.
