Re: Leonard Peltier #89637-132

Dear DSCC:

I am contacting you seeking consideration for Mr. Leonard Peltier who will be transferred from USP Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, in the near future.

Mr. Peltier has been a model prisoner and his security rating has been greatly reduced. Mr. Peltier deserves to be transferred to a lower security prison. Also, Mr. Peltier should be transferred to a facility close to his home in North Dakota. Mr. Peltier has served over 32 years in prison and deserves to be close to his
family during this crucial time in their lives.

It is my understanding that the Tribal Council, Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians, has requested that Mr. Peltier be transferred to their custody. I ask that you transfer Mr. Peltier to the Turtle Mountain Reservation's custody as soon as possible. The alternative that would help satisfy this request is a transfer to the federal facility in Sandstone, Minnesota, or that in Oxford, Wisconsin.

In the name of all things good and humane, I ask you to do the right thing.

Thank you.

Time to set him free... Because it's the RIGHT thing to do.
