Emmett Till: 60 Years Later

In August 28, 1955 a 14 year old boy named Emmett Till was found floating in a river in Mississippi. What makes this story relevant to today is the struggle for timely justice. I won't say the Police of today are anywhere equivalent to the KKK. But the difficultly to get swift justice when a white cop shoots and unarmed black man has parallels to the killing of young black men in the 1950's by the kkk.
