Over the past few decades many parts of the world have undergone changes that are working towards equality of all Even with these many accomplishments there is still a long way to go This is shown by the criminal case I have chosen to talk about On the morning of June 7th 1998 in the town of Jasper Texas the people of this town were shocked to find the dismembered body of 49 year old James Byrd propped up against the fence of a cemetery There has always been a history of racial hatred in Jasper which is made up of half whites and half African Americans There are records of obvious homicides that werent investigated by the police just because the person killed was African American There was one notable murder that occurred in Jasper in the 1930s where a black man was beaten and shot The police dismissed the case as being a suicide despite evidence of struggle and the number of broken bones which could not have been self-inflicted Over the past few decades there has been very few extreme racial crimes within Jasper People believed that the racial barriers were gone This latest incident has made people realize that there is still racial hatred but is now characterized by more subtle everyday occurrences such as favoritism in job hiring and promotions People have begun the removal of physical barriers such as the one in the cemetery There was a fence separating the blacks and whites which over time has become an invisible barrier that everybody has become accustomed to The day after this horrific crime local authorities traced evidence from the crime scene back to 3 men They found a lighter inscribed with KKK which belonged to Bill King beer bottles and cigarette butts with saliva that genetically matched that of the 3 men and blood matching that of James Byrd of the clothes of the suspects Bill King24 Lawrence
