KingCast says Happy Thanksgiving!

As part Cherokee and as a full citizen of this fine Country, I just want you to remember where it all really started, as noted in this post about Liko Kenney and Bruce McKay's clothing.
In 1637 near present day Groton, Connecticut, over 700 men, women and children of the Pequot Tribe had gathered for their annual Green Corn Festival which is our Thanksgiving celebration. In the predawn hours the sleeping Indians were surrounded by English and Dutch mercenaries who ordered them to come outside. Those who came out were shot or clubbed to death while the terrified women and children who huddled inside the longhouse were burned alive. The next day the governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony declared "A Day Of Thanksgiving" because 700 unarmed men, women and children had been murdered.

Cheered by their "victory", the brave colonists and their Indian allies attacked village after village. Women and children over 14 were sold into slavery while the rest were murdered. Boats loaded with a many as 500 slaves regularly left the ports of New England. Bounties were paid for Indian scalps to encourage as many deaths as possible.

Anyway, let's push that right back down underneath the American subconscience and move on back to another case that most major media and Kelly Ayotte want you to forget about as well: Note that even if the Court rules that these items are not subject to Right-to-Know, the State was still supposed to run tests on them that could help us to understand what really happened out there on Route 116.

Hint: The GSR on Liko's clothing will prove that Gregory W. Floyd is a complete liar about how he shot Liko and whether or not he said anything to him before he shot and murdered him, in my opinion.
