“Indictment is a noun form of the verb indict, which can be used in the sense of making formal criminal charges or in the more general sense of accusing or criticizing.” [dictionary.com]
From Dick Grob’s 1979 synopsis for “The Elvis Conspiracy?”:
“…then perhaps social indictments and judgements can be evoked.”
Did Dick Grob ever make any efforts to have Ginger Alden “judiciously” indicted? No. (By “judiciously” I am assuming Grob meant charges/indictments via the legal system [judicially].) Did he present the findings from his “investigation” to the Memphis Police Department? No.
If the legal system could not be utilized in this manner, to charge someone with a criminal act, then Grob was advocating for public criticism, attacks, judgments, and accusations against Ginger Alden. Please think about this: he literally put a book out with insinuation and innuendo for the sole purpose of manipulating Elvis fans to “socially indict” Ginger for absurd, unproved claims that have no relationship to the truth. As early as 1979, then, Grob had planned this campaign to damage Ginger’s name and reputation.
This is the stated intent of his book.
Isn’t this a “hit job”? Yes, it is.
