Post A lynching or suicide? Reply with quote
I was reading this article and I was trying to figure out if this Black man was lynched and they are trying to cover it up as a suicide or did this man hang himself from a tree in the middle of a night. Ya'll this article reads like something out of the 1950's Shocked

I had heard about thisstory, but not the above info. It would be hard to prove that he was lynched.

Why? Why is it not plausible that he hung himself? Because he was dating a white woman, whose father is a cop or because Black people don't committ suicide?

He killed himself. The evidence points to it 100%. Now had his hands been bound, evidence of a struggle, then lynching would be the plausible answer.

I agree that it's enough to be suspicious of it, but far from enough to declare that it's murder.

My only question would be did he have scrape marks on his clothes or body cause he would have had to climb a tree and hold onto the tree as he made the noose. And he would have had to make the noose close enough to the tree to put his head into it while he was holding onto the tree. If there were no scratches on him or his clothes or no residue of bark or something from that tree then to me it would be murder.

Sophia Choice. Laughing Obviously you weren't a tree climber as a kid. You don't always get scrapes, knicks and such while cliimbing a tree. And it is much much easier to hang oneself from a tree than say, a pipe or beam inside a home.

A lot of black people are still terrified by white people IMO. The word, "LYNCH" still conjers(sP?) "FEAR" in some kneegrows and thats SAD IMO. But I won't get into that.

I recall when that fugger Jesse Jackass went to MISSISSIPPI on a case similar to the article saying it was a "LYNCHING" but turned out it was a "hanging".

So that leads to question, [color=red]why do we connote every "HANGING" that occurs typically in the South that may have ONE racial element to a "LYNCHING" in 2003??? [/color]No, I'm far from naive, but I use the year in the fact that I don't believe that woudl be the PREFERRED method by most supremicist nowadays... I copied Tone's post becasue I totally agree with it.

I just think the whole thing is suspcious.
[size=24]
Name ONE thing please..[/size]

Heres what I see that doesn't bode too well for our victim in the article..

, [b]Golden's cousin, Dewayne Rumph, [/b]told investigators that Golden had frequently spoken of committing suicide and once "even stated he would hang himself from a tree in his grandmother's yard."

His Cousin?? Sounds like a reputable source.. MORE...

But [b]rumors [/b]persisted that Golden had marks on his head when he died, that his hands were tied behind his back when his body was found and that he would have been unable to climb a tree on a rainy night in a drunken stupor.


No one on RECORD unlike his cousin has come forth to state his whereabouts or how he received the bruise. Just typical LORE..

[b]Autopsy photos, [/b]however, showed only a single bruise around Golden's neck, and video from the first police car arriving at the scene showed Golden's arms dangling at his sides, not tied.

Ah, photos. Concrete proof that could be used by ANY independent investigator to make a determination rigth. I won't even get into the video but after all, are we supposed to believe the video in this town I've never heard went through the trouble to "doctor up" a video for this guy???

Testimony from the public inquest showed Golden to be a troubled, unemployed father of four. [b]Relatives also acknowledged the bedsheet used as a noose came from Golden's home[/b].

So the LYNCHERS broke into his home and used his own bedsheet to add insult to injury???

Ya'll this article reads like something out of the 1950's

No it doesn't, I've read much more GRAPHIC things from that era than this..

I don't see ANYTHNG SUSPICIOUS that can be gathered from this info. Please revert back to my first paragraph..
