Atlanta Murder cases to be reopened
Hey, does anyone remember those 25 or so black kids the Ku Klux Klan murdered in Georgia back in the late seventies, early eighties? You know, the one where the white cops railroaded some black smuck into prison on flimsy "evidence", and then declared the murders "solved" ? Looks like the law may actually take another peak - it seems some black actually managed to get elected sheriff in Crackerland, and he is re-opening the cases. Who knows, this could start a trend.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
