For Immediate Release: Department of Justice Petitioned to Investigate After Police Shooting of Lakota Man
Witness Says Clarence Leading Fighter Was Already Incapacitated When Fatally Shot in Nebraska Church
On Sunday, Apr. 14, a 32-year old Lakota man named Clarence Leading Fighter was shot twice and killed by a Rushville, Nebraska sheriff's deputy in the doorway of a Catholic Church. Now, an eye witness has disputed police accounts of the shooting, saying that Leading Fighter was already incapacitated when he was shot.
Donald American Horse saw the entire interaction, which followed an altercation between his sister and Leading Fighter. "[Clarence] opened that door to that church and they hit him with that taser," said American Horse. "He fell in towards that door, he was kind of halfway in and halfway out. About the time he hit the floor that cop pulled his gun, pointed towards the ground, and pop pop. That was it. They didn't even give him a chance."

MNN. 9 May 2019. Ambulance chasers Gowling WLG and the corporation of the government of Canada forgot we detainees learned how to count in their torture chambers called “Indian Day Schools”! Canada is a client of Gowling WLG and since 2016 the Indian Day School victims are clients of Gowling WLG too. How does that work?

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Native Water Protectors have a place in history.
Their sacrifices to protect the water, land, air and all living things is so powerful that when Native women testified in Jamaica this week, the United States sent a delegation from the U.S. Embassy and U.S. State Department in a failed attempt to protect the image of the United States and present the United States as abiding by its own laws.
