On today's episode of Louisiana Considered, Stephanie Grace and Paul Braun joined us to discuss the week in state politics. Also, we learn about invasive species that are inching a little closer to the Mississippi River Basin from the Great Lakes every year; and from Houston Public Media, we hear how some Houston residents are still feeling the effects of Hurricane Harvey five years after the storm made landfall. This episode of Louisiana Considered originally aired on Friday, Aug. 26, 2022. To hear the full episode, click the “play” button above.   First up on today's episode, we heard the latest from a press conference held this morning near the steps of the State Capitol. The event was hosted by Nancy Davis of Baton Rouge and her lawyer, Ben Crump.   Davis found out around 10 weeks into her pregnancy that her fetus has a fatal condition known as acrania, which means the fetus effectively doesn't have a skull and would not survive outside the womb.   Davis has been unable to get an abortion in Louisiana because of the state's near-total abortion ban. Louisiana hospitals are refusing to perform any abortions out of fear of litigation, even in cases allowed under the new law.   Stephanie Grace of the Advocate | The Times-Picayune and WRKF/WWNO's Paul Braun, who attended the press conference, joined us to discuss Davis' situation, and to talk about recent political assaults on New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell.   Federal and state agencies spend millions of dollars every year to keep destructive invasive carp out of the Great Lakes. Meanwhile, at least 25 destructive species — like water fleas and bloody red shrimp — are inching closer to the Mississippi River Basin every year. Juanpablo Ramirez-Franco of the University of Missouri School of Journalism's Mississippi River Basin Ag & Water Desk tells us more about the destructive potential of those invasive species as they make their way downriver.   As we approach the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Ida here in Louisiana, to our west in Houston, it's the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Harvey's landfall. Our friends at Houston Public Media launched a podcast earlier this month — Below the Waterlines: Houston after Hurricane Harvey. We listened to excerpts from the third episode, in which reporter Sara Willa Ernst examines mandatory buyouts of flood-prone homes in Harris County.   Today's episode of Louisiana Considered was hosted by Patrick Madden.

Social media erupted Tuesday night as Barstool's Dave Portnoy unleashed a barrage of tweets and a “press release” in response to Jason's column about Portnoy's brand of bootleg masculinity. Between a request for fellatio and fat jokes, Portnoy's Twitter tantrum only served to further expose the sports bro as a fraud. In this episode's fire-starter, Jason doesn't hold back: “Narcissism, cocaine, insecurity, and shallowness prevent Dave Portnoy from acknowledging his betrayal.” Jason outlines Portnoy's journey from sports media start-up to sports media sellout. “Portnoy is a sellout. He has no interest in bringing people together. His interests are in lining his pockets. I'd have no problem if he'd just admit it. He's white LeBron James.” Primetime Alex Stein joins the show and exposes Portnoy's pettiness for firing an employee for a phone call. Plus, Shemeka Michelle brings attorney Ben Crump before Judge Jason on charges against Free Black Intelligence for leading the outrage over an incident at the Little League World Series.

"Black, white, brown — it doesn't matter. You show up for what's right. Even when it's controversial or unpopular. Even when it's dangerous. Speak truth to power.” - Ben Crump How is Ben Crump working to fix a broken criminal justice system? Does bringing awareness and attention to a problem exacerbate the very issue he is trying to solve? How does he remain optimistic when one in five black men is convicted? In the face of death threats, how does he press on with such important work? What can attorneys who wish to drive real change do, beyond posting on social media? What is it like being one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People?   Attention and Advocacy Equal access to justice. Fair treatment. Hope for the future. Every American deserves these basic rights. Yet the number of Blacks and Hispanics convicted of felonies remains wildly disproportionate to that of their white counterparts. The criminal justice system, plagued by discrimination, implicit bias, and racism, requires a strong salve of tireless activism and unwavering optimism. Legendary national civil rights attorney Ben Crump draws optimism from one source over the rest: the precedent of Black Americans who have overcome, from the middle passage and slavery through Jim Crow and excessive police force. "Based on the precedent of black people in America, Whatever the enemies of equality throw at us, we're going to overcome it. We're going to be alright." - Ben Crump Often heralded as Black America's Attorney General, Attorney Ben Crump is listed amongst the Most Influential People of 2021 by TIME Magazine, Ebony Magazine's Power 100 Most Influential African Americans, The National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Lawyers, and the 2014 NNPA Newsmaker of the Year. In high-profile civil rights cases, he has represented the families of Henrietta Lacks, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, among others. Also the President of the National Civil Rights Trial Lawyers Association, he reached a $641 MM settlement for the residents of Flint, Michigan.   Show Up There is no nobler thing than to fight for the equity of your children. The price is often high, and the opposition is deadly. But in the matter of life and death in America, this is what it takes. Showing up. Speaking out. Leveraging the education and power you have to build a more equal America.    Key Takeaways: Take someone with you. Mentor someone who looks nothing like you, someone from a different background. Support scholarship funds to help trial lawyers become more diverse. There are always things you can do. Remain optimistic. There is always hope and possibility, even in the face of staggering statistics. Attorneys can build a better world — a better America — for generations to come. Embrace the struggle.  Pressure is what makes coal into diamonds and makes engines run. A necessary element of progress, the struggle should not be shied away from.

In this episode of #BluntForceDiscussion we talk to Sergeant John Mattingly who was part of one of the teams on the scene that served a KNOCK warrant (yes a warrant where they KNOCKED AND ANNOUNCED) as a part of a multi-unit and coordinated raid to multiple locations related to a Drug ring in Louisville. We clarified all of the misinformation that the media conveniently corrected on page 37 of their rags. (Yes page 27 is arbitrary and no, not all outlets event took the time to correct)First off Breonna Taylor was NOT ASLEEP IN HER BED. Second, this was NOT … I REPEAT NOT a no knock warrant, and yes this has been documented and Proven. There is no arguing this anymore. And leading into this interview all officers had been cleared or acquitted of wrong doing… However this did change after the interview and we discussed this in a post interview that has been placed at the end of the show. Mattingly discussed his years as a police officer, why he was essentially forced into early retirement. Talked about how awful the new police treated them and how to this day police officers don't know the truth of that night.

Happy Thursday everyone, this is Garrison Hardie stepping in for the Chocolate Knox for Thursday, July 21st, 2022. We’ve got a lot to get to today, so let’s just jump right in shall we? https://www.actionidaho.org/post/mayor-mclean-boise-city-council-make-boise-a-sanctuary-city-for-abortion Mayor McLean, Boise City Council Make Boise a Sanctuary City for Abortion Boise City Council voted 3-2 to approve RES 385-22 limiting the enforcement of Idaho’s abortion ban. The measure directs police to allocate their resources to every other priority in law enforcement but the crime of abortion. Idaho has a state criminal code, passed by legislatures and approved by governors. This code governs the entire state, so that crimes like arson, conspiracies, burglary, bigamy and polygamy, and others are uniform across the state. Each part of the criminal code defines the crime and punishments for each specific crime. Local law enforcement is then charged with enforcing these laws. City police investigate. County sheriffs investigate. District attorneys and county attorneys accuse and prosecute. Judges oversee trials. Idaho’s Criminal Code defines the physician or abortionist guilty of a felony called "criminal abortion" punishable by imprisonment if he or she performs an abortion. On July 19, 2022, Boise City Council passed a resolution to stop Boise city police from enforcing Idaho’s law against criminal abortion. The city council’s resolution holds that “investigations for the purpose of prosecuting abortion providers will not be prioritized, and additional resources or personnel will not be assigned” to crimes of criminal abortion. The city will not cooperate with other entities to enforce Idaho's ban on abortion law either. The City Council is not passing the law because the Boise Police Department is faced with a shortage of resources. The resolution was passed in order to undermine Idaho’s abortion ban, enshrined in its criminal code. Idaho's ban on abortion, the resolution reads, abrogates “the fundamental liberties of its people,” especially the “right to make reproductive health decisions for themselves.” Three members of the city council supported the resolution, while two opposed it (Elaine Clegg and Luci Willits opposed). The move provides sanctuary or a safe place for abortion providers in Boise. While Planned Parenthood has moved its abortion clinics out of Boise (Planned Parenthood’s only Idaho clinics are in Meridian and Twin Falls), the city of Boise’s passage of this resolution opens the door for its return. Other providers could move in as well. In other news… https://hotair.com/allahpundit/2022/07/19/house-passes-gay-marriage-bill-with-47-republicans-in-favor-n483850 House passes gay marriage bill -- with 47 Republicans in favor the “Respect for Marriage Act” (RFMA), which will take you all of 30 seconds to read. It doesn’t create any federal right of gay marriage. Rather, it repeals the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act signed by Bill Clinton and requires states to give full faith and credit to any lawful marriage performed in another state. So if SCOTUS ends up overturning the Obergefell case that recognized a constitutional right of gays to marry, gay couples from red states could get married in blue ones and then demand that their home states recognize the validity of their union under the RFMA. Pelosi’s strategy in forcing the vote is obvious. She’s keen to scare swing voters by leveraging Clarence Thomas’s concurrence in the Dobbs case, where Thomas called for overturning various landmark “substantive due process” cases touching on sexual autonomy, including Obergefell. And she knows that support for legal gay marriage polls remarkably well, which left House Republicans here between a rock and a hard place. If they voted for the bill, they’d be siding with Pelosi and the libs over social conservatives, angering the base. If they voted against the bill, they’d be angering the great majority of American voters. That’s a tough one for a Republican in a swing district. Especially since, according to Gallup’s poll last year, a majority of *Republican voters* now support legal gay marriage as well. A more recent Gallup poll published last month found national support ticking up to 71 percent. Normally a 71 percent issue is easy for politicians, but House GOPers know that it’s not moderates who tend to turn out in party primaries. Because it’s such a knotty dilemma for righties, Kevin McCarthy and his leadership team decided not to whip against the bill. House Republicans were free to vote their conscience, and in this case “conscience” included “whatever you need to do to maximize your odds of getting reelected.” Let’s shift our eyes overseas for a moment… https://americanmilitarynews.com/2022/07/russia-has-lost-50000-soldiers-in-ukraine-u-k-military-chief-says/ Russia has lost 50,000 soldiers in Ukraine, U.K. military chief says Russia has lost some 50,000 killed or wounded soldiers in its invasion of Ukraine and nearly 1,700 tanks have been destroyed, the head of Britain’s armed forces says. But Admiral Tony Radakin told the BBC in an interview broadcast on July 17 that any speculation the losses could bring down the government of Russian President Vladimir Putin was just “wishful thinking.” “As military professionals, we see a relatively stable regime in Russia. President Putin has been able to quash any opposition. We see a hierarchy that is invested in President Putin and so nobody at the top has got the motivation to challenge President Putin,” Radakin added. The British military chief said that, with the setbacks in Ukraine, Russia’s land forces may now pose less of a threat than they did before the war. Along with the losses in personnel and tanks, Russia has seen some 4,000 of its armored fighting vehicles destroyed since its February 24 invasion, according to his estimates.

The fund-raiser for the family of dead Minnesota shooter Andrew “Tekle’’ Sundberg, 20, surpassed its goal of $20,000 within three days, hitting $20,500 by Monday afternoon. Yet the GoFundMe page for Alba — who killed an ex-con attacker in apparent self-defense at the store — got pulled a day after his case came to light. Sundberg allegedly fired like a madman Wednesday in his building, including through the wall of an apartment of a mom cooking for her two kids, before being shot dead by cops during a standoff. His family said he was having a mental-health crisis at the time. It’s unclear why police snipers finally shot him dead after six hours of negotiations, but the head of the Minneapolis police union said in a statement last week that “to prevent death or great bodily harm to another, officers used deadly force.” When Black Lives Matter protesters showed up at the young man’s building over the weekend to decry the cops, the fired-upon mom had some strong words… https://youtu.be/n6IbcxbKIL8 - PLAY VIDEO - 0:27 - 1:16 According to Fox News the mother did get an apology from the shooters’ family. A GoFundMe set up by Foss-Yarbrough’s sister for her sibling had raised more than $56,000 by Monday evening. The set goal was $10,000. The page says the gunman who shot into the victim’s home “had been harassing her and stalking her for months.” The GoFundMe for Sundberg’s family says, “His life was taken too soon by the Minneapolis Police Department.” Relatives have retained noted civil-rights lawyer Ben Crump. Meanwhile, the GoFundMe page for Alba — whose supporters run from New York City Mayor Eric Adams to former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton — was yanked nearly as fast as it went up. Alba fatally stabbed an ex-con attacking him behind the counter of the store July 1, an incident caught on video — and which prompted controversial slay charges against the worker. He and his hordes of backers say his actions were clearly self-defense, with the clerk even seen in footage telling his assailant, “Papa, I don’t want a problem.’’ But GoFundMe said in a statement defending the move, “Our terms of service prohibit fundraising for the legal defense of a violent crime. “At this time, the fundraiser has been removed and all donors have been refunded.’’ The page had raised around $20,000 for Alba when it was removed, the Daily Mail reported. GoFundMe told The Post on an emailed statement Monday, “The fundraiser, “T.S. Family Funds”, states donations will go toward funeral, food, and family expenses. “Fundraisers for these types of expenses are allowed under GoFundMe’s terms of service.” Gold River Trading Co.

So I’ll have to do… Harbaugh was the keynote speaker at the event that was themed “We Were Made to be Courageous” according to Detroit Catholic. “I believe in having the courage to let the unborn be born,” Harbaugh declared during his speech. “I love life. I believe in having a loving care and respect for life and death. My faith and my science are what drives these beliefs in me. Quoting from Jeremiah, ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart. I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.’” He also discussed the recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade and an upcoming ballot question that could enshrine the right to murder unborn children in Michigan’s Constitution. “Passions can make the process messy, but when combined with respect, it ultimately produces the best outcomes,” the University of Michigan coach said. “This process has been passionate and messy, but I have faith in the American people to ultimately develop the right policies and laws for all lives involved. I recognize one’s personal thinking regarding morality of a particular action may differ from their thinking on whether government should make that action illegal. There are many things one may hold to be immoral, but the government appropriately allows because of some greater good or personal or constitutional right.” “Ultimately, I don’t believe that is the case with abortion,” Harbaugh professed. “Yes, there are conflicts between the legitimate rights of the mother and the rights of the unborn child. One resolution might involve incredible hardship for the mother, family and society. Another results in the death of an unborn person.” Harbaugh would also state, “In God’s plan, each unborn human truly has a future filled with potential, talent, dreams and love.” Harbaugh has been outspoken on his pro-life stance in the past. Back in 2020, Harbaugh spoke with Jay Nordlinger on his podcast, where he shared, “Even now, as we all go through what we’re going through now with COVID-19, I see people more concerned about others. More prayerful. As I said, God has virtually stopped the world from spinning. I don’t think it’s a coincidence. “My personal feeling, living a faith-based life, this is a message or this is something that should be a time where we grow on our faith in reverence and respect for God. You see people taking more of a view of sanctity of life. And I hope that can continue. I hope it continues, and not just in this time of crisis or pandemic,” he added. Harbaugh then said, ““And lastly, abortion. We talk about the sanctity of life, yet we live in a society that aborts babies. There can’t be anything more horrendous.” I don’t know about you, but Harbaugh has a fan in me. This has been your CrossPolitic Daily Newsbrief, if you liked the show, share it for me would ya?

Happy Thursday everyone, this is Garrison Hardie stepping in for the Chocolate Knox for Thursday, July 21st, 2022. We’ve got a lot to get to today, so let’s just jump right in shall we? https://www.actionidaho.org/post/mayor-mclean-boise-city-council-make-boise-a-sanctuary-city-for-abortion Mayor McLean, Boise City Council Make Boise a Sanctuary City for Abortion Boise City Council voted 3-2 to approve RES 385-22 limiting the enforcement of Idaho’s abortion ban. The measure directs police to allocate their resources to every other priority in law enforcement but the crime of abortion. Idaho has a state criminal code, passed by legislatures and approved by governors. This code governs the entire state, so that crimes like arson, conspiracies, burglary, bigamy and polygamy, and others are uniform across the state. Each part of the criminal code defines the crime and punishments for each specific crime. Local law enforcement is then charged with enforcing these laws. City police investigate. County sheriffs investigate. District attorneys and county attorneys accuse and prosecute. Judges oversee trials. Idaho’s Criminal Code defines the physician or abortionist guilty of a felony called "criminal abortion" punishable by imprisonment if he or she performs an abortion. On July 19, 2022, Boise City Council passed a resolution to stop Boise city police from enforcing Idaho’s law against criminal abortion. The city council’s resolution holds that “investigations for the purpose of prosecuting abortion providers will not be prioritized, and additional resources or personnel will not be assigned” to crimes of criminal abortion. The city will not cooperate with other entities to enforce Idaho's ban on abortion law either. The City Council is not passing the law because the Boise Police Department is faced with a shortage of resources. The resolution was passed in order to undermine Idaho’s abortion ban, enshrined in its criminal code. Idaho's ban on abortion, the resolution reads, abrogates “the fundamental liberties of its people,” especially the “right to make reproductive health decisions for themselves.” Three members of the city council supported the resolution, while two opposed it (Elaine Clegg and Luci Willits opposed). The move provides sanctuary or a safe place for abortion providers in Boise. While Planned Parenthood has moved its abortion clinics out of Boise (Planned Parenthood’s only Idaho clinics are in Meridian and Twin Falls), the city of Boise’s passage of this resolution opens the door for its return. Other providers could move in as well. In other news… https://hotair.com/allahpundit/2022/07/19/house-passes-gay-marriage-bill-with-47-republicans-in-favor-n483850 House passes gay marriage bill -- with 47 Republicans in favor the “Respect for Marriage Act” (RFMA), which will take you all of 30 seconds to read. It doesn’t create any federal right of gay marriage. Rather, it repeals the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act signed by Bill Clinton and requires states to give full faith and credit to any lawful marriage performed in another state. So if SCOTUS ends up overturning the Obergefell case that recognized a constitutional right of gays to marry, gay couples from red states could get married in blue ones and then demand that their home states recognize the validity of their union under the RFMA. Pelosi’s strategy in forcing the vote is obvious. She’s keen to scare swing voters by leveraging Clarence Thomas’s concurrence in the Dobbs case, where Thomas called for overturning various landmark “substantive due process” cases touching on sexual autonomy, including Obergefell. And she knows that support for legal gay marriage polls remarkably well, which left House Republicans here between a rock and a hard place. If they voted for the bill, they’d be siding with Pelosi and the libs over social conservatives, angering the base. If they voted against the bill, they’d be angering the great majority of American voters. That’s a tough one for a Republican in a swing district. Especially since, according to Gallup’s poll last year, a majority of *Republican voters* now support legal gay marriage as well. A more recent Gallup poll published last month found national support ticking up to 71 percent. Normally a 71 percent issue is easy for politicians, but House GOPers know that it’s not moderates who tend to turn out in party primaries. Because it’s such a knotty dilemma for righties, Kevin McCarthy and his leadership team decided not to whip against the bill. House Republicans were free to vote their conscience, and in this case “conscience” included “whatever you need to do to maximize your odds of getting reelected.” Let’s shift our eyes overseas for a moment… https://americanmilitarynews.com/2022/07/russia-has-lost-50000-soldiers-in-ukraine-u-k-military-chief-says/ Russia has lost 50,000 soldiers in Ukraine, U.K. military chief says Russia has lost some 50,000 killed or wounded soldiers in its invasion of Ukraine and nearly 1,700 tanks have been destroyed, the head of Britain’s armed forces says. But Admiral Tony Radakin told the BBC in an interview broadcast on July 17 that any speculation the losses could bring down the government of Russian President Vladimir Putin was just “wishful thinking.” “As military professionals, we see a relatively stable regime in Russia. President Putin has been able to quash any opposition. We see a hierarchy that is invested in President Putin and so nobody at the top has got the motivation to challenge President Putin,” Radakin added. The British military chief said that, with the setbacks in Ukraine, Russia’s land forces may now pose less of a threat than they did before the war. Along with the losses in personnel and tanks, Russia has seen some 4,000 of its armored fighting vehicles destroyed since its February 24 invasion, according to his estimates.

The fund-raiser for the family of dead Minnesota shooter Andrew “Tekle’’ Sundberg, 20, surpassed its goal of $20,000 within three days, hitting $20,500 by Monday afternoon. Yet the GoFundMe page for Alba — who killed an ex-con attacker in apparent self-defense at the store — got pulled a day after his case came to light. Sundberg allegedly fired like a madman Wednesday in his building, including through the wall of an apartment of a mom cooking for her two kids, before being shot dead by cops during a standoff. His family said he was having a mental-health crisis at the time. It’s unclear why police snipers finally shot him dead after six hours of negotiations, but the head of the Minneapolis police union said in a statement last week that “to prevent death or great bodily harm to another, officers used deadly force.” When Black Lives Matter protesters showed up at the young man’s building over the weekend to decry the cops, the fired-upon mom had some strong words… https://youtu.be/n6IbcxbKIL8 - PLAY VIDEO - 0:27 - 1:16 According to Fox News the mother did get an apology from the shooters’ family. A GoFundMe set up by Foss-Yarbrough’s sister for her sibling had raised more than $56,000 by Monday evening. The set goal was $10,000. The page says the gunman who shot into the victim’s home “had been harassing her and stalking her for months.” The GoFundMe for Sundberg’s family says, “His life was taken too soon by the Minneapolis Police Department.” Relatives have retained noted civil-rights lawyer Ben Crump. Meanwhile, the GoFundMe page for Alba — whose supporters run from New York City Mayor Eric Adams to former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton — was yanked nearly as fast as it went up. Alba fatally stabbed an ex-con attacking him behind the counter of the store July 1, an incident caught on video — and which prompted controversial slay charges against the worker. He and his hordes of backers say his actions were clearly self-defense, with the clerk even seen in footage telling his assailant, “Papa, I don’t want a problem.’’ But GoFundMe said in a statement defending the move, “Our terms of service prohibit fundraising for the legal defense of a violent crime. “At this time, the fundraiser has been removed and all donors have been refunded.’’ The page had raised around $20,000 for Alba when it was removed, the Daily Mail reported. GoFundMe told The Post on an emailed statement Monday, “The fundraiser, “T.S. Family Funds”, states donations will go toward funeral, food, and family expenses. “Fundraisers for these types of expenses are allowed under GoFundMe’s terms of service.” Gold River Trading Co.

Norm opens the show with an important correction regarding the state's authority to involuntarily commit an individual and how long that temporary commitment may last. Thank you to WICC's own Lisa Wexler for listening and providing our listeners with the right information. Norm begins the show in earnest by discussing the Randy Cox case, which is making headlines for the questionable handling of an inmate transfer resulting in the apparent paralysis.  How are officers trained? What tools are available to them? And what do officers experience on a day to day basis in their encounters with the individual that lead to an observed calousness from the vantage of a detached media and public? Norm takes a balanced approach in analyzing the Randy Cox case. While the officers might have been correct to be suspicious of Cox's words of apparent injury, Norm explains why they're conduct appears to have been way over the line.  But the bigger issue is what Norm has called race entrepreneurship. As applied here, Norm questions what business Ben Crump has with the Randy Cox case beyond the new requirement that prisoner transport vehicles be equipped with seatbelts. In other words, what about the Randy Cox case warrants the lens of racial discrimination?  The concern here is one anchored in the most fundamental component of legitimacy.  Like, share, and subscribe!

Emmett Till's Cousin Remembers

Emmett Till's lynching is credited as the spark that set off the Civil Rights Movement. In 1955, the 14-year-old boy was visiting family in Mississippi when he was kidnapped and murdered for whistling at a white woman. Days later his bloated body was dragged out of the Tallahatchie River and sent home to his mother, Mamie Till Mobley, in Chicago. When pictures of his mutilated face were published around the country, it shocked the national consciousness, bringing people off the sidelines and into the fight to recognize Black Americans' basic humanity.Congress first considered antilynching legislation at the turn of the twentieth century. On January 20th, 1900, Representative George Henry White of North Carolina, the only Black member of Congress at the time, introduced a bill that would have subjected people involved in mob violence to the potential of capital punishment. Since then, antilynching legislation has been introduced in Congress more than 200 times. It had failed every time. That changed last week. At the end of March, President Biden signed the Emmett Till Antilynching Act into law, making lynching a federal hate crime. Present at the ceremony was Emmett Till's cousin, Rev. Wheeler Parker. Rev. Parker travelled from Chicago to Mississippi with Emmett Till in 1955, and he is the last living relative to have witnessed the boy's kidnapping. This week on Into America, he shares his story.For a transcript, please visit msnbc.com/intoamerica. Follow and share the show on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, all with the handle @intoamericapod.Thoughts?
