  •  Emmett Till was precisely what I thought (4+ / 0-)

    when I first heard that all the victims had been shot "multiple times." I can't imagine how hard it would be to have that be your last image of your 6-year-old, but if one of the shattered parents were capable of it, it might, might, only might, get through this country's thick skin of denial.
