Many years ago I owned a taxi. I didn’t just give people rides but also picked up and delivered packages and letters.
One time I was called to pick up a letter from a business. As I was standing in the office waiting for the secretary to get the letter I looked at some pictures on her desk. There were two pictures with a teenage woman in each. I knew the girls but could not think of their names. Did I know them from somewhere? Where?
So I asked the secretary.
I should have kept my mouth shut. She told me they were her late daughters – who had been raped and murdered on a local, closed-down bridge (in high school we held huge parties on that bridge. I also remember my parents driving my sister and me across it when we were little – at that time it was part of Route 66 before the interstate was built.).
I felt like a complete idiot.
I had seen those pictures in the local newspapers or perhaps on TV.
There were four boys involved in this rape/murder – three blacks in their late teens and one 15-year-old white boy. The two sisters were white.
The ringleader, who was judged retarded (he was just stupid) got life in prison. One has since been executed – and he whined he was innocent even when the needle was being stuck in his arm (he was as guilty as hell).
The 15-year-old served 15 or so years in prison but when he was offered parole said no, he didn’t yet deserve it. Some years later he was released. I know he wrote a letter of apology to the parents. I have no idea what has happened to him since then.
The other two are still in prison for life.
When I mentioned this crime to a friend of mine he wasn’t sure he believed it. “Why haven’t I read about something this terrible?” he asked me. He lived only about 150 miles away.
I told him the MSM is dishonest and the only crime it reports is when a white person commits a crime against a black. That kind of reporting has been going on for a long time. Think of potential rapist/murderer Emmitt Till (whose father was hanged during WWII for the rape/murder of a couple of Italian women) – and that was back in the 1950s. Everyone knows about the son but not the father.
He asked a woman who was a mutual friend if this crime had really happened, and she told him, yes, it did. He was stunned.
Since that time, he told me, he has lost all faith in the media. He doesn’t watch the news anymore and doesn’t read newspapers. He reads blogs and that’s it.
His 23-year-old son pays no attention at all to the MSM except for YouTube.
The MSM has bought these problems on itself because of its dishonesty and selective reporting.
I have mentioned before I have a degree in Journalism. I’ve also mentioned I wish I hadn’t got it and left the field decades ago.
By the way, the girls died when they were thrown naked off the bridge and drowned. Only one body was found. They were far too little to swim to shore – perhaps a little over 100 pounds each.
