Justice delayed in Mississippi...

This July 2005 photo shows Thomas Moore at his home in Colorado Springs, Colorado, holding a photograph of himself (right) and his younger brother, Charles. The small photo was taken in 1964, shortly before Charles Moore and Henry Dee were killed by Ku Klux Klansmen.

A federal grand jury has indicted 71-year-old James Ford Seale in the case.

This story caught my attention because I was a young man working in neighboring Northeast Louisiana in 1964. It is difficult to comprehend the level of racism that existed in that part of the world at that time. Some horrible crimes were perpetrated against black people.
