KENNETH LOUD HAWK AND RUSSELL REDNER On November 14, 1975, American Indian Movement (AIM) activists Kenneth Loud Hawk, Russ Redner, KaMook Banks, Leonard Peltier and Dennis Banks were stopped by state police on a road near Ontario, Oregon. After an exchange of gunfire and a motor chase, the first three were captured; Peltier and Dennis Banks escaped. Police searched the vehicles and the three were charged with illegal possession of firearms and dynamite. Oregon state police detonated the dynamite before the defendants lawyers were allowed to inspect it; the defendants plead innocent to all charges. The ongoing legal battle lasted more than a decade, with the defendants charging that the FBI committed perjury and fabricated evidence. Finally, in 1988, Dennis Banks received five year's probation for the illegal possession of dynamite, while all charges against Loud Hawk and Redner were dropped.
