Recy Taylor: A Symbol of Jim Crow's Forgotten Horror

It's unclear what legal options the family has today, but because Alabama has no statute of limitations on rape, McGuire posits that Taylor's case could potentially be reopened if the assailants are still alive. "There may be a possibility that they could sue the county or sheriff's department for obstruction of justice, given the cover-up," she said. "A creative attorney could certainly find a way."
I guess she was "asking for it" since she was a black woman walking home minding her business after church with a group of friends. /sarcasm
That...is absolutely, terribly disgusting.
That poor woman. Having to live with that all these years, and nothing being done to those men...I can't even.
There is an update.. Recy did get an apology, and she has accepted it. She didn't get justice, but she figures it's been so long the apology is enough for her at this point in her life.
