On the morning of October 13, 2004 an African Man by the name of Bernard C. Burden was found hung from a tree in the yard of a white family in Grantville, GA. His feet were touching the ground with his knees bent. The Coroner Wimp Pierce ruled it a suicide. There was a house full of people that night and no Criminal Investigation was done. No one was charged as suspects in a possible homicide despite the numerous contradictions:

1) How is it possible for a person to hang himself while his feet are still touching the ground and knees bent?

2) Chris, resident of the home, says he found Bernard hung at approximately 7:00am, yet 911 was not called until 8:30am.

3) Police Chief Ramos of Grantville stated that no police investigation was necessary because the Coroner, Wimp Pierce did an investigation. Since when are Coroners trained and authorized to perform criminal investigations?

4) When Ms. Pless, the mother of the victim, requested that the Coroner perform a toxicology test to see if drugs were in Bernard's system, he rigidly refused.

These are just a few of the contradictions that warrant a full criminal investigation.

Reparations to Bernard's family and the African Community!
Imprisonment of those responsible for his death!
Community Control of Police!

    Have you considered that the spade might have deserved to be hung. Apes are always stealing stuff and commiting crimes. I am glad this is one less worthless turd to pay for while he does his prison time. The authorities handed the lynch mob medals I hope
