Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s wife, Coretta Scott King, shockingly said at a King Family Press Conference, back in December 9th, 1999, that “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.”
The King Center commented on the family’s civil trial that found the US government guilty in Martin’s assassination, that after four weeks of testimony and more than 70 witnesses in a civil trial in Memphis, Tennessee, there were twelve jurors who reached a unanimous verdict – just the day before the press conference – on December 8, 1999.
After only about an hour of deliberations, the jury in the civil trial found that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated as a result of a conspiracy involving the United States government.
At the press conference the following day, Mrs. Coretta Scott King cheered the verdict, saying point blank that “there is abundant evidence of a major high level conspiracy in the assassination of my husband, Martin Luther King, Jr.” she noted, continuing that “the civil court’s unanimous verdict has validated our belief.
“I wholeheartedly applaud the verdict of the jury and I feel that justice has been well served in their deliberations,” she added.
“This verdict is not only a great victory for my family, but also a great victory for America. It is a great victory for truth itself. It is important to know that this was a swift verdict, delivered after about an hour of jury deliberation.
“The jury was clearly convinced by the extensive evidence that was presented during the trial that, in addition to Mr. Jowers, the conspiracy of the Mafia, local, state and federal government agencies, were deeply involved in the assassination of my husband. The jury also affirmed overwhelming evidence that identified someone else, not James Earl Ray, as the shooter, and that Mr. Ray was set up to take the blame,” she continued.
“I want to make it clear that my family has no interest in retribution. Instead, our sole concern has been that the full truth of the assassination has been revealed and adjudicated in a court of law… My husband once said, ‘The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice.’ Today, almost 32 years after my husband and the father of my four children was assassinated, I feel that the jury’s verdict clearly affirms this principle. With this faith, we can begin the 21st century and the new millennium with a new spirit of hope and healing.”
Then help SPREAD THE WORD about the government WAR on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. so the system that murdered him doesn’t get away with hijacking and co-opting his memory!
