In this latest episode of Redacted Tonight VIP, Lee Camp talks with Dr. William Pepper, an attorney and author of the recent book, “The Plot to Kill King” in which Pepper presents evidence that it wasn’t in fact James Earl Ray who assassinated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis in 1968. Pepper, an attorney who interrogated Ray a decade after King’s death, tells Lee who the real players are behind the shooting. While there was still one shooter, there was a bevy of co-conspirators, including state and federal government officials, who plotted the details of how Ray, who died in 1998, would become the fall guy in an assassination that would spark riots all across urban America. On behalf of King’s family, Pepper brought a civil action suit in 1999 against those involved in King’s death, bringing evidence before the courts that was never brought before the state 30 years earlier—including Ray’s alibi that placed him far from the crime scene. Dr. Pepper’s investigation was not without criticism. Despite violent threats to Dr. Pepper’s family and being lambasted by the mainstream media, the details of his private investigation leave you with no choice but to second guess everything you thought you knew about a death that was a defining moment in the Civil Rights Movement.
