Sixty two years later? Witnesses are dead. Suspects are dead. And it happened before most of us were even born.

Political grandstanding and a waste of government resources.

Well, good morning Larry G. Now go back to bed and let the adults carry on the daily activity of being intelligent. You are in the way. We all know your feelings .... anti-white, anti-Republican, anti-Bush, anti-American and just plain stupid.

Now wait a minute..larry g if you are anti-republican and anti-Bush then you are NOT anti-American or anti-patriotic AND you ARE intelligent. Thought i'd straighten that out. If those murderers are alive,i say do as the Jews do to the Nazis and that is hunt them down no matter their age. Obama '08!!

Good Morning Dave
I see you aren't any smarter than the last time . Let me explain something to you a S52 or whatever his name.

The sheriff has usually been the local
imperial wizard , so when a black man or woman ( because as you see from the article they killed women too) went to jail , the KKK showed up at midnight to put them in their place .
We have a thing about lynching , yOU
need to leave this one alone , unless
you think lynching is alright

Aren't there more recent unsolved crimes the FBI can take a look at? Or aren't the more recent crimes PC enough to warrant investigation? How far back do folks want to go in the name of "justice" and at what cost? Not just money but resources that could be used in crime prevention or investigation of recent cases that are unsolved.

We're in trouble when you want to use the Jews as an example of how to conduct a criminal investigation. Talk about a lynch mob. Don't give religious zealots any credibility than an eye for an eye. Revenge maybe, justice, no way.

Go back much further and you'll be literally digging up defendants to take the stand.

In the best case here though, how do you punish someone who is probably in their 80's for something that happened that far back? Bear in mind that these probably aren't upper class individuals, so due to how they've lived their lives, they undoubtedly already have a host of health problems.

if they were 15 year old black kids with guns and killing. lose your life.
if they are eighty year old white guys with health problem, if they killed other americans they forfeit their own lives. hunt their asses down
