Sorry, Carrie. I couldn't read it to the very end, I was too disgusted. It's like we went straight back to the era that horrible picture stems from. They had it coming too, of course.

Noted with acute nausea! Wish i'd done what Lona did...stop reading a bit sooner. Thanks for posting, Carrie. Important to know this stuff, eben if it's revolting! Can't send another green star yet, but i will soon.

I am surprised at the number of people who are not familiar with the heart breaking and tragically cruel story of Emmett Till. While it is difficult to read ~ imagine having lived and died that manner.

I like how the police defense is basically, " We think that he maybe stole cigarettes."

And somehow it was leaked (though not confirmed as far as I know), that he had pot in his system.

So apparently smoking pot and stealing cigarettes, is now punishable by death.

Sure, if he stole cigarettes fine him, throw him in jail. But it does not merit being shot six freaking times!
