Law and Order types have no problem bending the rules to secure a conviction. Helps them win elections by appealing to that Law and Order vote.

Oh, whaddaya know, Mr. Flowers is black. Shocking.

Racism much? 23 years in prison and that piece of garbage finally drops the charges? I hope Mr. Flowers takes every penny that piece of garbage has.
BTW, as I have mentioned on many occasions, Mississippi is a s**t H**e. You know why there are so many black people inn northern cities? Because they escaped. Things weren't great in northern cities but then they weren't in Mississippi.

"You know why there are so many black people inn northern cities? Because they escaped. "

You are partially correct. But the "escape" was during the Great Migration from 1916 to 1970 when app 6 million blacks left the south for the north. Also to a much smaller extent the underground railroad in the mid 19th century.

The Great Migration of blacks from the south to the north ended about 50 years ago.
