Republic of Lakota will spend one year gathering evidence.
"This investigation is going to take a year or more to gather all the evidence to substantiate our charges of genocide against the United States of America," Means said.
Means said the grand jury will not issue indictments.
"We are a peaceful, non-confrontational republic," he said. "We don't attempt to use police power to brutalize anyone, either physically or mentally."
Not only does the Republic of Lakotah avoid using police power, it doesn't have any police or power. It couldn't confront anyone if it wanted to. Unless you count Russell Means berating people with a megaphone as a confrontation, that is.
