Where is the Outrage Over AIM Violence?

"In my soon-to-be-released book, American Indian Mafia, I expose, once and for all, the true legacy of the American Indian Movement..."---J. Trimbach

The Rapid City Journal carries an October 16, 2007 story about the death of AIM activist Vernon Bellecourt on October 13.

One of the commenters appears to be the former head of the Minneapolis FBI, Joseph Trimbach. I have written about Joseph Trimbach a number of times on my blog.

It is difficult to be positive that this commenter is Mr. Trimbach, of course. Perhaps Mr. Trimbach will give an interview to a newspaper about Vernon Bellecourt's legacy. Mr. Trimbach promises that his book American Indian Mafia is going to be released soon. I certainly hope so!

Here is what the commenter identified as J. Trimbach says:

J. Trimbach wrote on Oct 16, 2007 12:01 PM:
"In the mostly postive eulogies, I have not read one mention of Vernon's role in the planned torture and murder of AIM member Anna Mae Aquash, falsely accused of being an FBI informant. Vernon Bellecourt, as AIM security chief, allegedly made the final call to have Ann Mae executed (shot in the head at point-blank range). She left two young daughters. I understand the controversy over team names, but where is the outrage over AIM violence? In my soon-to-be-released book, American Indian Mafia, I expose, once and for all, the true legacy of the American Indian Movement, the real story of Wounded Knee (completely missed by the media), the secrets of convicted killer Leonard Peltier, and the current horrific living conditions on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The truth will hurt, but it is necessary before a true and meaningful healing process can begin. America (that's all of us) has done very little to bring the blessings of our country to our Indian brethren. It's time to change that. "
