Bad bad. Story here from the New York Times. The federal government has quietly revived its investigation into the murder of Emmett Ole. The fourteen year old African American boy whose abduction and killing remains almost 63 years after the fact. Among the starkest and most searing examples of racial violence in the south. You you can automatically. Conjure up the image of that child's body in that casket right now anyone probably over the age of forty. If you hear the word Emmett Till I can automatically see. That grainy black and white photo of that open casket each. Justice Department says it's renewed inquiry which are described in a report submitted to congress in late march was quote based upon the discovery of new information it is not clear whether the government will be able to bring charges against anyone. Keep in mind this happened 63 years ago. And pretty much kick started the civil rights movement. The Justice Department declined to comment today but it appeared that the government had chosen to devote new attention. To the case after a central witness Caroline down now. Re camps in parts of her account of what true what transpired in August of 1955. Two men who confessed to killing Emmett. Only after they had been acquitted by an all white jury in Mississippi. Are dead. So. Who if anyone you go back in charge and I will say this this. Remains. One of the most embarrassing. Horrifying miscarriages of justice. In our country's history. I do believe that. Everyone knew they were guilty they said they were guilty no. Even in the 70s80s. And nineties. When those idiots were still alive why not. Go back charged and federally do some terrible jeopardy can do some things. It you you could get them on some kind of civil rights violation couldn't you and they never did and it angers me that they never did and now they're dead may they. How would you like let's say for example. OJ Simpson. Comes out and says let's into it's a we're secret of all time I killed them. You can't take him back to court he's been acquitted. That's double jeopardy. What were you regular parking violations who knows I don't know. They put Gregory Breeden back in prison here for what is an incredible miscarriage of justice as well or fine is an -- it was it was no it was bounced check it just bounced checks you are right. They got him on bounced checks they could never prove he killed a string of prostitutes in Kansas City back and plays they knew he did it but they couldn't print they got him on bounced checks and and I'm telling you. It's interesting to me the DOJ once again is taking a look at this. But the two people responsible are dead. So the two people who bragged about being responsible are dead. Also on at this point I don't even know if it's about. It's just about justice it's about just Jack's auditing fees and the only set right in the Chris Matthews or and look this up descendants. A round the Kansas City area suburb and a look at a 576779. It lets get to the loser here is.

The only way you can taking MB easy with you is the radio dot com apps downloaded today and listen to us any time anywhere Kara marks are nears 981 KM BZ. Yeah. Yeah. Ottawa is getting out there on the charts it's not the two men are dead killed and it itself. They want to charge her Scott who. The white woman. That entire case the death of Emmett Till. Was because he allegedly. Whistles at a white woman were you remember the story. They want. To charge. The white woman with what and here's why. It was a book written about this it's called the blood of Emmett Till it was written and Tony seventeen. And that book included believe it or not the first Nolan. Interview. When us Caroline. I think of him as Donna on that right. It was 2000 first known interview with. This woman. And this historian wrote in this book. That's. Pardon me her former husband Roy Bryant. Admitted. That still had never whistled at his wife. So that follow me here at the thinking is. Because he and or she testified. That. This black Childs. You know visiting. The south from Chicago whistled at a white woman that they testified he whistled at the white woman which was the spark. That led to his murder. People are saying they should be charged because. At least one of them I think it was him for what has re yes testified. That yes in fact you'd whistled at the white woman in the book they say. Actually no name those efforts are limitations on perjury. Listen to one of the post is just from from Twitter Caroline Donnan is an accomplice to a confessed murder and should be in prison. That has been clear for decades now she has lived her life is a free woman in the world in the till has not lived at all that stretch she would today BEE church. In her eighties. For perjury or lying under owes the statute of limitations in federal court is five years but some want her held responsible. For the consequences. Of her dishonesty it's one thing to walk her to help being held responsible sort of thing can you do it. Can imagine living your life knowing. That a child was killed because of you. Knowing. That the whole whistling thing never happened. And keeping your mouth shots. It's one thing back in the fifties got okay we're may be with his all white jury of racial tensions were high she's Leon does not insane and but when you get older. And you're in your forties or fifties or sixties or seventies now she's in her eighties. Carrying that around with you know wing. That you should have testified. This never happened. I don't house Elizabeth herself would it have changed the outcome of that trial with an all white jury in Mississippi problem got probably not. And trying to find an old syringes. But she has to be into work well into her eighties. To. And I'll keep looking off my editor. But what's the point. What what does that justice is the point well. You can't re workable law. To fit what you consider to be justice of the statute of limitations for perjury even at the federal level is five years on what charge do you get a. You just because you want somebody to pay for a crime that they committed. Doesn't mean that you get to punish them for a crime they commit. We have rules in this country. And we have statute of limitations. I I don't I I see this as a paid for unless they're gonna bring somebody up on murder which has no statute of limitation. It seems to me to be a waste of time and money. We know. That two men who were acquitted later said they did it. You can't try them again and you can't try them now because they're debt. They knew of this woman Caroline Dunham. Who admitted in a book that came out couple years ago. That she lied. That Emmett Till. Whose name will always be synonymous with the beginning of the civil rights movement in America. Never touched her and never whistled. What are you going to do. Two and 858687. Year old woman. That's gonna. Make this any better. If you go to Emmett Till murder dot com. There is an extensive list of the players back then. In the case Scott right down to the journalist who wrote about it when. I'm still scrolling but nearly every single person is dead. So I mean this is a waste of taxpayers' dollars a lot to justify to me. How this is a Smart use of taxpayer dollars. What could come of it. If your re opening the case you're not putting one person you're putting multiple people won't. Who make a 15200000. Dollars a year. And you're wasting. Our money and they're time when they could be going after cases that actually matter today. I'm not saying I know until his death doesn't matter I think most people listening right now. Would agree with you. It just makes me sick. That will leave nothing was ever done data there are thousand cases I can point to that made me sick. But what also makes me sick is the Justice Department reopening a case that has no business being reopened. Unless you can bring a murder Chara unless there's a third person. That we don't know about. Well there were others who were either there or witnessed it their all detail and I'm scrolling and well you can find someone who is a lot of that you can prosecute with Merck. And sent to prison for the rest of their life which is a year you were three or four. This is a waste of taxpayer money it just is. Sony says she's an accessory to murder no she's not. Committing perjury. Is not an accessory to murder. I 7677. On it. And services they just need what does go. So this is they still out for Nazis and their ninety's are we really come. Honoring well to know that but they're what they're saying Scott and I they're not comparing Nazis to what happened Emmett Till. I don't wanna ranks evils in the world but I I think what they're saying is if your argument is simply so much time has passed why waste of resource is. You can also say so much time has passed white. Weighs the resource with with with people who are Nazis there are crimes that they committed where statute of limitations has not expire. We're justice can still be saw. You stood there as and push Jews into the other. You murdered Jews. I don't care if your 91 years old. K you're all in that jail so you're gonna rot. But lying. When you would get her as an accessory to murder is too to make the argument and I think it's implausible. That by her lying Sheen knew these men were going to kill Emmett Till. Well she certainly knew afterward. That nothing of the sort had happened that is what is alleged mr. Edwards edged. But but if if if I said to you. I'm Dan wind bomb said something really mean about you and me. And you then went out and punched and wind bomb in the face. And screamed and yelled. And and I later admitted he nervous. I'm not responsible. Nor prosecutable. For the battery you just conducted on somebody at work. Eight. Because I didn't know going and you were going to lose your mind to go out there on some in the face Iran. Because that young girl texting her boyfriend go ahead tell yourself. Her defense said the same thing she could not have possibly known he was going to do that. But he did so she can't eat went to prison Sheen and knew he was suicidal if we're compared these cases she knew he was suicidal. He was in the car in the garage with it on and said he wanted to turn the car off. And she said no go through with this go through office. I think that's kind of an apples and oranges now. 576779.

I didn't she's in trouble. Sad news for the life will lift. Sam owns or to Kansas City Star reported the bug lathrop. The winningest coach in Missouri high school basketball history. Died today at the age of 82. And he attached to his tweet. A story he ran back in April the star ran it in paper where all this former players from the school got to say goodbye to him. Sam on your right she lives one hell of a life. And leaves any enormous impact so cool that so many of his players put this event on for him. Back in April. But lathrop I believe the coach great town south if I'm I'm going on memory here kept rates on south. Died today at the age of 82. While at 955. Wins 35 conference titles four state championships. You know a coach. Is a unique. Human being and Molder of of young lives. Almost. It's a unique. Position to be and in life. If you're good at what you do like he was and you have so many players that can say youth shaped me you helped me sure how many other heat poll. Do you say that about him obviously your parents maybe a teacher. But just what's interesting professor would have teacher professor. You could have maybe six or seven people whose alma ascent I'd love that teacher she really. Or he really. Helped me saved me showed me the way with the coach you can have seriously thousands of people. Who will say. This person made me what I am today. I still it's cool I still to this day. Have breakfast with my old high school football coach. From 47 years old it's a very unique. Bond can be. And certainly in in this case I don't think you're gonna get any argument there. And he'll be the first to tell you and he did tell you we did the remote at a level that one time I was not the best player you never know what can you believe then. I was I was not the best football player ever now. But we still to this day probably two or three times a year will go grab 12 pages. Practice practice and you wanna feel like you're the only one that does that no no I'm not saying that. They don't you wanna kind of feel like. Yeah. Coach Odom what makes me so special and there. Was never the best but I was reported that. On different. School. You know I and I and I'm sure that there are so somebody just wrote in it's we're good friends lathrop said this is just sad sad day. And and this is a man. I would bet down and re town today there are a thousand. Great stories being told today. About you know and and from. Kids who played when they won the state title to kids who played related. You know I am I sick kids are all grown ups by now I'm sure. By apple and we've all got that everybody I think has if you played sports you'll have that one coach. That you decide how utter a word. Even through glass. And look and were out to see. He cuts boys basketball their for the first 45 years rate town south existed. 45. Years is that keep that in mind when I tell you 35. Conference titles he used to tell each player. They had a friend. As long as they live. Those players grew up to be his doctors lawyers mechanics financial advisors. His life he told each player's got they had a friend in him as long as they lived. And he's murdered amazing amazing here's what I wonder. And and I don't know quite. With colts coach late trooper even my coach Odom. Do you remember after you've coached that many kids. Do you remember all their names antigen. I absolutely know he did. You just know that you coach say sitter thirteen kids on the team on any given year and obviously it's not a different thirteen every year. But you know obviously the numbers start to change over the years you coached basketball for 45 years coach Odom coached at Lansing for twenty. How many kids do you think have put on a uniform and gone out and played. For you. Now maybe you don't remember the kid that tries out a man quits three weeks out of him you know. Sucked anyway.
