Do you think because it was a high-profile case and not only did a person lose his life as a result of the "alleged" fake accusation decided by the court but that families were destroyed in the process could be the MAIN reason why New York is upholding this suit against Brawley? Or is it merely a black and white issue? Just askin.
I think it's merely a Black and White issue, where the message is being sent to Black people that we should be afraid to go after certain people that have did unspeakable crime(s) to us, and the fact that it also sends this same message to the general public is only icing on the cake for them.
May the guy was already mentally suicidal, but it would seem to me that only a person that knows they are guilty or that there is evidence to prove their guilt would take that route.
I'm still trying to find out exactly how a person (Brawley) can tie themselves in a garbage bag, and, be found barely conscious and obviously drugged, and somehow people can be made to believe that the girl was lying in the first place.
I don't think even Houdini could tie himself inside a [garbage] bag.
