shafer's bragged about TAKING A BEAD on JEFFERY MILLER.


Posted by: DavidL (Fairbanks, Alaska) on May 5, 2007 3:03PM
I recently found this FBI memo on the seven reel set of microfilms produced by scholarly resources. So, the next time your hear SGT Larry Shafer, in my opinion you should be leary as his credentials may be flawed. 1. the man was the only guardsman who received medical care for his injuries, ten mintes before the shootings. 2.) the FBI intereviewed witnesses to verify their 1970 comments in 1973. The interviewees werer uanble to substantiaste their comments.
