In 1975, Leonard Peltier was convicted of killing two FBI agents on South Dakota's Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Supporters across the world say his trial was unfair and prejudice. Among other things, witnesses had been threatened, and strong evidence supporting his innocence was suppressed.

Today Leonard is serving two life terms in prison. The 66-year-old Peltier was denied parole last year.

The Leonard Peltier Defense/Offense Committee now says Leonard's blood tests indicate he needs a biopsy to check for prostate cancer. LPDOC member Delaney Bruce says Peltier is undergoing a “special kind of torture” due to bad medical treatment.

A spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons says all inmates receive adequate care.
