Ben,

I live in a Southern state known for it's racism. (I know, aren't they all.) It saddens and sickens me that, in 2005, Southern lawmen can still get away with the kind of evil coverups, and sham investigative efforts that they did 50 - 60 years ago.

Why isn't the FBI investigating this as a civil rights case? Why didn't it get attention during the anti-lynching business in the senate? Why isn't the mainstream media, who love to seek ratings and stir up trouble with racially charged stories, all over this one?

I pray that not only may his soul find peace, but may his killers meet their judgement and receive their reward.

Thanks for taking on this very important, yet ignored, case, Ben.

James @ Right Face!

It's amazing that so many people make up their minds without evidence. Is it a cover up, is it racism, is it incompetence, I don't know. What I do know from being in government for over 20 years is that the kind of conspriacy alleged in this article would be almost impossible to accomplish. And then, for what reason would it occur? I agree with some of the comments, there are questions to be answered. But to jump up and say all "lawmen" are racist. Isn't that comment in and of itself prejudicial and inflammatory?
