I did find a slight update to this ongoing story regarding the recovered 1955 warrant for Carolyn Bryant. There was a book that was made public about the Emmett Till situation that was originally going to be archived at the University of North Carolina. Since news spread about the missing warrant, the author decided to make this book public. Carolyn Bryant told her husband Roy not to hurt Emmett Till, but that’s a load of crap. It’s like she had to link up one lie after another to try and keep her story straight which is failing. I suck at lying and even I can tell this is obviously not true or matching the other stories. Demetra Kaye from the African Diaspora News Network gave her 2 cents on the subject while also giving this recent information. I just get angrier every time I hear something new about this massive delay with the warrant and how this is being handled. Don’t get me wrong, I thought it was cool how there was a #PullUpSummer moment by going to addresses where Carolyn lived including a nursing home. Hopefully, she gets found and is forced to answer for the murder and subterfuge she’s responsible for. I don’t care if she is in her 80s or 800 years old. Carolyn needs to face the consequences of the murder of Emmett Till. Pardon the political parody, but LOCK HER UP! Tell me why she doesn’t deserve that phrase shouted at her as she goes to court and eventually the pen. I have no sympathy for vile lifeforms (I will not call her human) when others have been killed or jailed for far less assuming if they did anything horrible at all!
Screw this blogging hiatus. I’m staying on top of this story.
I’m keeping my eyes peeled for any updates or any angles to the recently discovered warrant buried in a Mississippi courtroom since 1955. There have been some protests including a symbolic eviction notice to the last known address of Carolyn Bryant (assuming if she still lived there) and there was a spotting of protesters showing up at a nursing home that she supposedly lived at, too.
I wondered how the legal process would play out other than the DOJ sitting on their hands, so I thought about the legal stuff on the state level. If Bryant gets charged, she would definitely have to go all the way to MS from North Carolina since the crime happened in the Magnolia State in the town of Money (seriously, that’s sadly the name of the town where Emmett Till was murdered). The AG Lynn Fitch wasn’t going to pursue charges. If I were to make a guess, I think she doesn’t want to send someone who looks like her mom to the pen. There are other officials, but they’ve been silent to the best of my knowledge. Did I forget to mention the DA is Black? I have a bad feeling the could be a sellout if he isn’t throwing the book at Bryant. I hope the pressure continues where the system is forced to charge and arrest this white supremacist murderer who’s already in her 80s.

I know I’m still on hiatus, but this story has me enraged so much that I have to talk about it. I’m sure my audience knows about Emmett Till, right? The Black boy from Chicago who was alleged to have whistled to a white woman in Mississippi and was killed and his death kickstarted the Civil Rights Movement? Afterward, Carolyn Bryant (nee Dunham) ADMITTED SHE WAS LYING and is still alive to this day. Well, guess what? They found a warrant from 1955 for Carolyn’s arrest in a Mississippi court basement. What gross incompetence! They were protecting her this whole time even if some of the people who were alive back then are dead due to their age now. It’s not like she did anything where it could still potentially be of use.
Oh, wait. I’m no legal expert, but I know murder has NO statute of limitations! I’m sorry, but if we can arrest a 101-year-old Nazi this year, then we can surely make Carolyn spend the rest of her life behind bars. What’s your excuse? A Black boy died because of a white supremacist woman’s lie, so she needs to get hard time. I know if a Black person murdered someone back then and was still alive, they’d lock them up no questions asked. Thankfully the case is reopened and the warrant is still valid, but I hope they lock her up. There are people who have been executed for less assuming if they actually committed a crime! If you’re one of those “believe all women” #MeToo feminists who rant about R. Kelly and Bill Cosby, but remain silent for this woman who lied about a child taking sexual advantage of her and was an accomplice to his death, then you’re part of the problem. I understand people have been bombarded with so many stories about mass murders, inflation, the Russia-Ukraine War, and other things, but this story needs more attention even if it’s tough to punish these white supremacist POSs. The fact that Carolyn Bryant is still alive and so many others haven’t lived as long as she did is disgusting.
