More than 60 years ago the death of 14-year-old Emmett Till triggered civil rights movement though the details of his murder remained uncovered.
After his main accuser, Carolyn Donham (Bryant), admitted lying about alleged sexual harassment Till’s family want the justice restored more than ever.
Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood promised that he “will do all the law allows to make sure justice is done,” but refused from giving comments about the investigation.
Internet users do not seem to believe that the proper investigation is possible after so many years, especially in view of the huge number of Black people desperately trying to have justice properly served nowadays. You never can tell, but if Castille’s family finds out the truth, this case will become a great source of hope for numerous wrongfully convicted Blacks.
