Recommended to Pete by: AC
'The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy-The Conspiracy and Coverup' written by joint authors William Turner and Jonn Christian is a very compelling work that highlights many deeply disturbing similarities between Dallas '63 and Los Angeles '68.

This is a republished book (originally published in 1978) and is an interesting read on the coverup, witness intimidation, and destruction of evidence by the LAPD (with support and encouragement from the FBI and Secret Service) of the RFK assassination. Another coup d' etat (just like JFK's murder), except this time it was to eliminate the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in '68.
