H! Late getting here -- I started reading the day the thread came up, but am only now getting back to finish it and comment.
Many of us have had concerns with the official story in this case, (as much as with JFK). It's just never really made complete sense, and even
criminals generally "make sense", in their way. There were always too many unanswered questions in terms of motivation and ability.
Many individuals and groups feared MLK, and what he was capable of accomplishing. Nobody had ever seen anyone capable of the influence he carried in
the African American community. People feared his power in this respect, and no one knew what to expect, although he always presented his ideals and
ideas as peaceful, and there was nothing whatsoever to indicate anything different.
It's really terrible what fear can do. And jealousy, and I firmly believe there was some of that involved as well.
This is a really informative and great thread. Hats off to the OP for the good work and attention to detail.
