    Presidential Candidate Ron Paul Votes Against 'Civil Rights' Measure
    News; Posted on: 2007-06-23 20:47:30 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]

    Government can and should work within its current budget.

    The Justice Department would get more than $100 million for new prosecutors, FBI agents and other resources to revisit unsolved murders from the civil rights era under a bill passed by the House Wednesday.

    The bill, which is also moving swiftly through the Senate, would authorize $10 million a year over the next decade to build on the Justice Department’s recent successes in reopening racially motivated crimes that had sat cold for decades. It also would earmark $2 million per year in grants for state and local law enforcement agencies to investigate cases in which federal prosecution isn’t practical, and an additional $1.5 million to improve coordination among investigating agencies.

    The bill, passed 422-2, is named in honor of Emmett Till, a black teenager from Chicago who was beaten and murdered in Mississippi in 1955 after being accused of whistling at a white woman. His killers were never convicted.*

    State and federal prosecutors have had a string of successes recently in reopening civil rights crimes from the 1950s and 1960s, including the 1963 Birmingham, Ala., church bombing and the 1964 slayings of three civil rights volunteers in Mississippi.



    Most recently, prosecutors last week won the conviction of reputed Klansman James Ford Seale on federal charges of kidnapping and conspiracy in the 1964 deaths of Charles Moore and Henry Hezekiah Dee. The 19-year-olds disappeared from Franklin County, Miss., in 1964, and their bodies were found later in the Mississippi River.
