Subject: Has anyone heard this??


> We get a number of email stories, only some of which are true.  If anyone
can

>
> Back in 1969 a group of Black Panthers decided that a fellow black panther
> named Alex Rackley needed to die. Rackley was suspected of disloyalty.
> Rackley was first tied to a chair.  Once safely immobilized, his friends
> tourtered 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 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 bath. 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.
> And now; as Paul Harvey says; you know (the rest of the story).
> Pass this on!  She deserves the press................
