Does anyone remember or personally know Cecil Ray Price? He along with Lawrence Rainey were Neshoba County sheriffs during the early 1960's at the height of racial strife in Mississippi and little is known of both men except for the movies that portray their character as sheriffs in the movies,"Mississippi Burning" .

Yeah but he was a sheriff doing his job at a time when we lived by the laws of God,"that taught us that whites and blacks don't mix" and that you don't see a robin mating with a crow.

Perhaps he was living by the words of the Almighty himself. I do understand that what really fanned the fire were the two jewish boys Andrew Goodman and Micky Shwerner that went back to Neshoba county to investigate the Mt. Zion church burning and perhaps he had enough of jewish outsiders meddling in the affairs of something they knew nothing about or understood at the time.

You must remember in 1964 Neshoba county, Mississippi there were different laws and these sheriffs were only doing there job but I would like to hear from anyone with first hand knowledge of Cecil Ray Price and Lawrence Rainey.

You're kidding, right?

The laws of god? Perhaps you have the US confused with Tehran? We are a nation of laws of MEN. Have you read our Constitution?

Where does it say in the bible whites and blacks don't mix? I mean.. not that it really matters how you might think a book of personal BELIEFS applies to a governance of diverse people, many of whom do not SHARE those beliefs... I'm just curious. Who says your potentially misguided, malformed understanding of "the word of god" applies to me and my life?

How does pulling someone into jail for no reason, denying them their civil rights, then delivering them into the hands of murderers classify as "doing your job?" I don't care if it's 1950 or even 1850, none of that looks like the laws structured by the patriots I've studied.

I am going to close this thread for mod review . I do not want it to escalate into another race debate; there is another forum for those kinds of things on this site (The Great Debate) .
