Unfortunately, it's not about statute of limitations anyway, as they were acquitted.   That was just more sickening on top of their horrible deeds, and her lie that was the proximate cause of their deeds.  Smiley Sad

 

I wish she could be charged, but I would doubt that would ever happen.

Re: Woman admitted she lied on the stand

@chickenbutt Yes, the men were acquitted & under the law cannot be re tried.My point was she was never charged or tried so the door is open. Her initial lie set the events into motion!! But I also agree with you that they would probably not do it!! I was just thinking out loud!! The situation makes me sick!!

Did anyone read the comments on the CBS link? Disgusting. Actually made my stomach turn. Heaven help us all if they were real and not just trolls.

My guess as to why she is telling the truth now, is that she is old, possibly dying, and wants a clear conscience before she passes.

 

She is confessing her sins before she dies.

 

Was what she did horrible?

 

Yes, without question, but then again, look at the times that we were living in 60+ years ago.

 

Civil rights was just getting started, I mean, this case remindes me of the movie "To Kill A Mockingbird", where a black man was falsely accused of raping a white woman.

 

 

So, yes, what she did was horrible then, and it is still horrible today, I'm not saying that it wasn't.

 

I'm just trying to understand the "Why" of it all.

 

 

I may not always agree with the "Why", but I do try to understand it.

 

 

Also, I don't like to jump on the "this-person-is-rotten!" bandwagon, without looking at the situation from all possible angles first.

Re: Woman admitted she lied on the stand

All this, "now we know she lied" stuff is totally missing the point that no person should be murdered for what he was accused of, even if it was true. 

 

IMO this really isn't about if she lied or not. It's about what kind of crazy people think it would be ok to murder someone for flirting.

Re: Woman admitted she lied on the stand

I am in shock I do not remember this case but the way people of color were treated is beyond me, we were taught to love all colors and we did not see colors growing up and I sitll do not.  My son dated several black girls and I took them in and treated them just as I would any color..........now his dad's sad was awful to those girls as far as being rude and they were not allowed in his home but that is wrong we all bleed red...........either you love or you hate...........ugh I am so upset this woman killed this child because she did and the sorrow of this child's family and mother and his pain of being beat to death for nothing.............I am so upset right now..........so upset............she is well they won't let me post what I think she is.............nothing done should have ever caused this baby's death.............ever............I am judging her and God will forgive her if she is sorry and I am sure in her life her burden has been heavy, I feel bad when I would get mad at people on here..........Dear GOD bless that mother and family. As for the pig woman..........I don't care what happens to her.
