In an unprecedented maneuver designed to persecute and intimidate a number of elderly White people, U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and F.B.I. Director Robert Mueller have teamed up and dug way back into the history books and pulled out about one hundred murder cases, some over 60 years old in which they intend to charge, what are now elderly White people.
"Much time has passed on these crimes," Gonzales told reporters in Washington. "But we are committed to re-examining these cases and doing all we can to bring justice to the criminals who may have avoided punishment for so long."
The announcement followed a decision Tuesday in which a grand jury in Leflore County, Miss., declined to indict Carolyn Bryant in connection to the 1955 Emmett Till case, and is in no doubt a response to that decision.
Although officials declined to comment on which cases have been reopened, they confirmed that the deaths of four negro sharecroppers in 1946 on Moore's Ford Bridge in Walton County, Georgia were among the cases.
It is suspected that other Georgia cases will be reopened including a 1956 case in Molena, Georgia and a 1958 case in Dawson City, Georgia.
Below is an interview in which Gonzales all but admits to Wolf Blitzer that his parents came to this country illegally.
