Martin Luther King was killed and James Ray convicted for his killing. According to FBI, CIA, army intelligence, Mafia, and Memphis, King was dangerous revolutionary leader. Pepper said that US army Special Forces Snipers were sent at the scene, all taking aim at King the same time as back up civilian assassin.
The army had orders to assassinate Reverend Andrew Young and King but they did not get final order as the so called “assassin” had already taken a shot at King. Ray was coaxed into pleading guilty but his lawyer. The bullets also were
not allowed to be tested.
