    Lynching soon to be a Federal Crime

    Congress makes lynching a federal crime, 65 years after Emmett Till


    Both the Senate and House have passed legislation that will make lynching a Federal crime. President Trump is expected to sign the bill. I hope he does sign this bill it is way past time for this law.

    How far will partisan beliefs go, will those who think Trump can so no right support his signing this law or be agianst it simply because Trump is for it?

    The Emmet Till case was absolutely horrifying, the kind of story that will give you nightmares for a week. I can't believe it took so long to get this law passed.

    About damn time.
    Its in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, its easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.

    Here are the four:

    Republican Reps. Louie Gohmert (Texas), Thomas Massie (Ky.) and Ted Yoho (Fla.), and independent Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.) — voted against the measure.


    Strange mix Gohmert I can see; Amash not so much.....

    If anything points to the corrupt uselessness of our politicians, it's this.

    What will they do next?

    Censure buggy whips?

    And THEN what...?

    I would be interested in their reasons for a NO vote.

    He was lynched cause he flirted with a white girl.

    Just a few years ago, the white girl, now an old woman, came forward and said she made the whole thing up, that Emmet Till didn't flirt with her.

    I don't understand the point. Murder is already a Federal crime and carries the death penalty.
