Famous Civil Rights Movement Murder Case Closes With No Murder Conviction

The "Mississippi Burning" case was closed this week after decades of trying to obtain a murder conviction for the deaths of Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner and James Chaney to no avail. The attorney general for Mississippi said there was “nothing else we can do” unless more witnesses come forward to testify.

In 1964, Goodman, Schwerner and Chaney were teaching Mississippi volunteers how to navigate racism and violence they would encounter when trying to vote. They were arrested on charges of speeding and released. Then Klansmen, who were guided by the arresting officer, pulled the men from their car, according to the Los Angeles Times. The three volunteers were shot and buried, and their bodies were discovered 44 days later. No one was initially charged in the case. [Los Angeles Times]

Latest Critiques of Trump Hit Him Where It Really Hurts: How He’s Poor and Has Small Hands

Last week a superPAC called “Americans Against Billionaires with Small Hands” launched an ad campaign trolling Trump by demanding he release the measurements of his hands, NPR reports. “If the White House phone rings at 3 a.m. will his little hands even pick up the receiver?” the video asks.

On another front, Trump's campaign is broke compared to presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s and makes “dumpster fires look good,” according to the Huffington Post. Trumps coffers have around $3.1 million compared to Clinton who’s raised $26.4 million. [NPR and Huffington Post]
