"Real Justice"?
"Real justice" was done for Mary Emma Thames and Betty June Binnicker? A 14-year-old black boy was electrocuted by Jim Crow-era South Carolina after a 2-hour-long farce of a "trial" based on nothing but an undocumented "confession" that no one witnessed and the fact that the girls had supposedly stopped to ask him and his sister where they could find some flowers. No evidence. Nothing. And this in an era in the South where simply being the local black man could get you accused by authorities and then convicted by an all-white/no-blacks-allowed jury that deliberated and convicted you in 4 minutes; or get you lynched by 10,000 joyous, picnicking, picture-snapping citizens as city officials looked on and joined in the day's entertainment, even though they were supposed to be protecting you for "trial".

That, to you, is justice? You must have a very low and perverse standard for what is considered "justice", indeed.

Let us hope that you are never railroaded for a murder because of your race - supported by "evidence" showing that the victim asked you about some flowers before their murder.

What do you mean there was justice? George did NOT kill those girls.

Mt Salem cemetery
I think u need to re check the location of the Cemetery you have entered called Mt Salem.
you have Jacksonville , MO
The cemetery located 6 miles E Of Jacksonville off Highway J is called "Salem Cemetery"
That's North of Moberly, MO.
.Mt Salem cemetery that is in Randolph CO MO, Just south of Huntsville. Near RR BB.& D Few miles South of 24 HWY. Is the one called called Mt Salem Baptist Cemetery. Used to be known at the Twin churches.
Please remove my picture that someone has placed
on the wrong cemetery.
You may want to correct the name of the cemetery you entered
