Subject: Forgotten Facts
Back in 1969 a group of Black Panthers decided that a fellow panther named Alex Rackley needed to die. Rackley was a fellow Panther suspected of disloyalty.
Rackley was first tied to a chair. Once immobilized, his friends tortured him for hours by, among other things, pouring boiling water on him. When they got tired of torturing Rackley, Black Panther member Warren Kimbo took Mr. Rackley outside and put a bullet in his head. Rackley's body was later found floating in a river about 25 miles north of New Haven, Conn.
Perhaps at this point you're curious as to what happened to these Black Panthers. In 1977, that's only eight years later, only one of the killers was still in jail. The shooter, Warren Kimbro, managed to get a scholarship to Harvard. He later became an assistant dean at Eastern Connecticut State College.
Isn't that something? As a '60s radical you can pump a bullet into someone's head, and a few years later, in the same state, you can become an assistant college dean! Only in America!
Erica Huggins was the lady who served the Panthers by boiling the water for Mr. Rackley's torture. Some years later Ms. Huggins was elected to a California School Board.
How in the world do you think these killers got off so easy? Maybe it was in some part due to the efforts of two people who came to the defense of the Panthers.
These two people actually went so far as to shut down Yale University with demonstrations in defense of the accused Black Panthers during their trial.
One of these people was none other than Bill Lan Lee. Mr. Lee, or Mr. Lan Lee, as the case may be, isn't a college dean. He isn't a member of a California School Board. He is now head of the US Justice Department's Civil Rights Division.
O.K., so who was the other Panther defender? Is this other notable Panther defender now a school board member? Is this other Panther apologist now an assistant college dean?
No, Neither! The other Panther defender was, like Lee, a radical law student at Yale University at the time. She is now known as The "smartest woman in the world."
She is none other than the Democratic candidate for the US Senate from the State of New York----our lovely First Lady, the incredible Hillary Rodham Clinton.
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND!

P.S. Did you hear about the attorney who was having problems with self esteem so he got a job selling used cars?

Although I would love to believe this story.....I have heard thats its false....I wish I knew for sure.
Found this in the "Reality Bites" Archives!
John McCaslin | Washington Times | June 12, 1998
A gang of criminals tortures, mutilates, and murders a black man. The nation demands justice for the brutal killing.
Jasper, Texas, 1998? Not quite. It's New Haven, Conn., 1969.
This week's killing of 49-year-old James Byrd, reportedly by three convicts, bears
similarities to the torture-murder of 24-year-old Alex Rackley in 1969.
Like Mr. Byrd's murderers—suspected of ties to the Aryan Brotherhood and the Ku Klux Klan—the leaders of the Black Panthers were hardened ex-cons who had developed their doctrines of racial hatred in prison.
In 1969, Panther leaders in New Haven suspected Mr. Rackley of disloyalty. He was
tied to a chair, and his comrades tortured him for hours by, among other things, pouring
boiling water on him. Finally, Panther gunman Warren Kimbro ended Mr. Rackley's suffering with a bullet to the head.
Only one of the killers was still in prison in 1977. The gunman, Warren Kimbro, got a
Harvard scholarship and became an assistant dean at Eastern Connecticut State College. Ericka Huggins, who boiled the water for Mr. Rackley's torture, got elected to a California school board.
Unlike the Texas trio accused of killing Mr. Byrd, the Panthers in 1969 became a cause for radicals at Yale Law School.
One of those law students, Hillary Rodham, "organized shifts for her classmates" to
"monitor civil-rights abuses" during the trial of Mr. Rackley's killers and aided the
American Civil Liberties Union's defense of the Panthers, David Brock wrote in his 1996 book about the first lady.
Through her involvement in the defense of these killers, he reported, Ms. Rodham met
Communist Party lawyer Robert Treuhaft and won an internship in his Berkeley law office.
No. Can't possibly be true!
The only thing I find hard to believe is that records showing her name still exist!!
I'll take two... CPU's
You know why Hilliar never wears a v-neck top? Because she didn't want anyone to see her adams apple move when Bill speaks!
LOL BBA! That's a good one.
Like you asked I did not read this.
I hear the book "Hell to Pay" is a really good book about Hillary. It has stuff in it from her college days and I think it even has one of her term papers in there. I have tried to buy it a couple times, but it's been sold out. Maybe I'll try this weekend.
Hey Tony, where's that archive? I only came up with movie **** when I did a search.
