BACKGROUND: On April 15, 2012, the final day of the first "Trifecta Resista" weekend of actions, peaceful resisters rallied outside Whiteman Air Force Base. Mark Kenney, Brian Terrell, and Ron Faust, entered the base to present an indictment for their participation in the illegal use of assassination drones. (See "RESISTING DRONES IN MISSOURI: 'Let Justice Flow Like a River…'" and "Drone Resister Mark Kenney Gets Four Months In Jail".)
