lolwut?

Atlanta is extremely multicultural.

The fact is, all over the U.S., people are choosing to self-segregate. I don't know why.

Anyways, it was very smart of this local Sheriff to call in the FBI...simply to avoid any appearance of a local cover up, etc.

People without a rope?

People who don't want it to look like a lynching?


Defies the logic. The people who would have had the intention to lynch, would have been racially motivated and with the scope to send a message. Fits the profile of the racial crime. If they wanted to be a lynching, they would have made sure it looked like one. And not to hide the real motive or even the form of execution.

Just my two cents

Basing your judgement of an entire state on a small slice of the state you experienced.

Hmm, I wonder if there are groups of people who judge entire subsets of a population based on a small sampling of that population.

This is a fantastic point. I'd bet that the Ferguson incident caused this decision though.

I agree. With what's been happening around the United States regarding race relations, calling in the FBI was a good decision. If local police had been at the center of the investigation, you can bet fingers would start pointing at the boys in blue.

Exactly. With the nature of the situation, it is clearly very delicate. Best to cede the case to the big boys so a bunch of unnecessary accusations don't come tumbling down on your head.

You said it was dirty, you said there was not a single nice city in Mississippi. You said it was a "Ghetto Mess". Explain to me how my reply to you was a "leap" based on your glaring generalizations.

I'm not saying you're hater. I'm just saying try not to judge an entire state based on your small experience of it. I drove through Atlanta once during rush hour, but I don't say All of Atlanta is terrible because I had a bad experience driving through it.

if you drove through seattle, where i live and called it the biggest sh1thole ever i would say, "glad your not here anymore." not jump down your throat and imply you might be a racist.

Easy now, I didn't imply you're racist. Though I could see where you might link what I said to that. I was merely drawing a parallel that generalizations can lead to things like racism. I certainly didn't mean to imply you're a racist, I apologize.

You could DEFINITELY draw the correct conclusion and say all of Atlanta has horrible traffic though.....it has ever since I was born and just keeps getting worse. I got away from it for a while when I moved, but moving back to the traffic was one of the con's on my list of moving back.....

LOL I brought that traffic nightmare upon myself though. I was determined to see Williams St. which is where Cartoon Network's [Adult Swim] is based out of. Atlanta was a really cool city to see, though. I'm glad I did it.

That's because Atlanta is quickly turning into the New York City of the south.

Has nobody considered that he could have had a big debt to his "supplier"? He then may have gone to the casino hoping to win enough to pay him off, lost everything instead, went home & solved his problem in the only other way he knew how.

Cool...my 2 older kids were part of a CN game testing group. We met a couple on vacation in Savannah that work there and they asked us to bring the kiddos to the group. Pretty cool place.

When did I say he was dragged from his home?


You made the absurd comment that his neighbors would have seen him walking from his house with a sheet so why would they not see him being dragged off to be lynched? I mean, who willing goes to their own lynching, right?



How do you even know he went home?


Being that he was found 200 yards from his home where else would he have been?


And now you change from not typically to a definitive...


It keeps you from using it as a supporting piece of verbiage.



"For obvious reasons listed above"....


Take a look at photographs of actual lynchings. Notice that they have their hands tied? Why is that? Notice the rope?
