    I saw that story on my Newsfeed. I hope, and guess, not all frats pull this kind of crap. I am getting tired of hearing that word tied in with stupid and criminal acts. Hopefully they won't get one of those "boys will be boys" Judges. Whom are probably frat brats themselves.

    What surprised me is the amount of people who say they have only just learnt about what happened to Emmett because of this.

    Emmett does not have a twitter account. Makes you invisible nowadays.

    What does the photo mean, signify or represent?

    I don't understand frat guys posing with guns under his memorial.

    What was their point?? Just wanted attention? Well they got it.

    Stupidity has many faces. People are doing some stupid crap, just to go viral on social media. Young people are learning to have NO respect for the past.

    Well, considering where they are and going to school, it's a safe bet that they have heard of the crime.
    At the very least, it's stupid and insensitive; sort of like joking around for the camera at Auschwitz.

    It is a guarantee they knew who Emmett was and that's why they took the photo there. I've seen some try and make excuses saying they don't fully understand the situation but they are old enough to know it was a stupid idea but did it anyway. They knew it would get them attention which it has but in the end like so many before them, it's gonna blow up in their faces.

    I always thought she admitted it way too late even though common thought at the time was better late than never. For who? He's dead because of her actions. She knew what environment she lived in and could get away with it. How she didn't wake up and throw up every day, I don't know.

    According to this man interviewing members of his family in 2017, his accuser was 82 when this was taped:

    It will be interesting to see if anything actually happens with this, especially since the DOJ closed the case in December 2021. In all likelihood they have to get a new warrant because itís highly unlikely a judge would allow them to move forward with a warrant from 1955.

    They could reopen it, citing the warrant as new evidence. I donít know if the DA wants to go that route though. He basically referred to the DOJ remarks saying there was nothing to try.

    Sadly, it sounds like she now has alzheimer's or
    something like that.
    So she may never be charged.
