Thoughts? After 40 years, Martin's killer may be in jail for another offense, or may have even died since the time of the murder. Martin's family deserves to know who killed him and the identity of any accomplices that played a role. If any of them are alive, then they need to be held accountable.
It sounds to me Martin may not have been the intended target. We like to think stop snitching is something new but even back in the 70's I take it there may have been people who knew that didn't want to talk to the cops. Who knows if those people are still around after 40 years, I'd like to think someone would have talked if they knew anything.
