I have read through the article, had actually expected more of it. Not much more than I already knew, as far as family is concerned. Too bad the author uses the usual version (which the government dictates). In the District Court Excerpt (US court of Appeals) Shockley versus United States / March 10 - 1948 I come to a completely different conclusion [On behalf of Shockley it is urgent that evidence fails to show that he had prior knowledge of the "break"] . But when the opportunity presented itself he joined himself until he realized that the attempts did not make sense. Also the stories that he had summoned the other inmates to kill the guards may be questioned. Sam had an IQ of just 54, why would hardened gangsters be ordered by a mentally handicapped person?
