after watching the news special last night, it saddens my heart to think that racism still runs so deep in our youth of today. This was a true horrific event and those responsible need to be hung!!!!
Waiting for change

the real question is will the state of Mississippi be allowed to sweep this case up under the rug and if not will each party that participated in this tragedy be tried accordingly. Will Mississippi allow the Old South to rise again and be so open with racism or will they limit this type of display of racism !!!!

What a waste of human life. A productive person cut down by biggots...and prejudice, who can't think of others and their rights. Parents are going to have to move on, to teach their children to accept life as it is and people as they are.

Congradulations! Just when we all thought "Deliverance" came from the Appalachian stereotypes. Ya'll so far behind in time, the war of 1860 is over, I think they did the filming in Jackson and Brandon Miss.
Where were the parents of those white retards anyway, or did they have parents. It's such a shame that they couldn't have made national news for some sort of achievement, if they could've spelled the word even, instead of some brainless crime.
