is Bobby Gore... is the answer to the question "Why
was Bobby Gore framed?" No one who knows Bobby could
believe that he could kill anyone. "As God is my
Bobby says, " I did not commit that murder. I could
not take a life."
The most likely explanation for Bobby's
frame-up is that the gangs had become a political threat
to the Mayor and States Attorney Edward Hanrahan pinned
this crime on Bobby in order to cripple the CVL. Clarence
Conn, the main witness against Bobby and who was identified
as the actual shooter, may have been offered a deal in
order to "get" Bobby.
Bobby's life is about saving people,
not killing them. His actions transforming the CVL and working
for the youth of Lawndale, his unwavering stand at his trial
that he was innocent, his peacemaking role in prison, and
his dedication to his community by his work with the Safer
Foundation after he got out should convince any fair-minded
person that he is no killer.
We want a measure of justice for Bobby
Gore and vindication for the 1960s CVL.
