KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Former Kansas City Black Panther leader Pete O'Neal apparently has not received a last minute pardon from former President Obama.

O'Neal has been living in exile in Tanzania for over 40 years after fleeing the U.S. while facing a federal weapons charge.

The 41 Action News Investigators first reported about the renewed push for an O'Neal pardon in April.

In November, the son of a murdered Kansas City police officer said he was against the pardon due to a 1969 Black Panther newspaper article on that murder.

Congressman Emanuel Cleaver had been pushing for a pardon for O'Neal.

A spokeswoman for Congressman Cleaver, speaking to the 41 Action News Investigators less than two hours before the end of the Obama presidency, said there was no word about a presidential pardon for O'Neal.

http://www.newnation.org/Images/2017/OfficerJohnDacy.jpgChris Dacy was 5 years old when he answered a life changing phone call. He was told his father, Officer John Dacy, while off duty, was shot and killed trying to stop a robbery. The Black Panther's published an article about the event with the headline "Off-duty pig's last act of terror" with a picture of the fatally wounded Dacy. Dacy was also a Marine Corps veteran. The first sentence of that article reads, "The people of Kansas City are in an ecstatic state today following the execution of a pig". In a statement Chris Dacy re-released from 1999 when a similar push for O'Neal didn't result in a pardon, Dacy writes, the result of his father's death was "three fatherless children and a young widow."
