    And that was proven to be a lie. The men that murdered him admitted that never happened. Emmett Till was 14 years old and not dumb enough to flirt with an adult white woman in racist Mississippi. He was brutally murdered because he was black and defenseless.

    From Wiki
    Emmett Till - Wikipedia

    Decades later, Bryant disclosed that she had fabricated part of the testimony regarding her interaction with Till, specifically the portion where she accused Till of grabbing her waist and uttering obscenities; "that part's not true," Bryant stated in a 2008 interview with historian Timothy Tyson.[2][4][5] Till's interaction with Bryant, perhaps unwittingly, violated the strictures of conduct for an African-American male interacting with a white woman in the Jim Crow-era South

    I believe there is a provision in the bill that the internet poster known as 'apdst' must kiss a picture of Hillary Clinton every morning, before eating his two slices of avocado toast.

    Such serious crimes should be prosecuted under state murder statutes, he said, and subject to the death penalty as in Texas.
    Texas’ Rep. Louie Gohmert one of just four votes against bill to make lynching a federal hate crime

    Just a guess it is probably out of some double jeopardy concern where someone could be tried at the state level for murder but then may face another trial at the federal level. Ultimately it is a pretty pointless law.

    From my previously provided link, Gohmert :
    A 10-year maximum when we’re talking about lynching?”
    It seems he argues that is too short, supports the death penalty instead. Perhaps I am misreading this.

    Given all the school shootings, we should totally outlaw shooting someone on a school campus.

    10 years is absurd, they should never be allowed back into society.

    I wonder if the Feds will go back and prosecute the agents who murdered people at Ruby Ridge?
