7. And I always interpreted the words as Dr King KNOWING they would kill him
And when I say "they", I'm not referring to James Earl Ray, or even his mystery pal "Raoul".

I believe MLK knew they had a hit on him and that his days were numbered. And like the assasination that happenned 5 years before, and the one that would follow 2 months later, the parties to blame are the same, and not the ones we were all led to believe. :grr:
