The murder of Leo Frank, a century later

The Atlanta Journal Constitution wrote about the history of the murder of Leo Frank, the factory manager who was framed for the murder of Mary Phagan, and later kidnapped and lynched by an anti-semitic mob who despised the governor's commutation of the unjust sentence. And only years later did a witness who spotted the real murderer named Jim Conley admit what happened, because the vicious janitor had warned he'd murder him too if he spoke up.

What's really stupefying about the case is that, if I'm correct, the victim herself was Jewish (is Phagan not a Jewish name?), and if so, then the whole neanderthalic clan of Marietta who took part in the murder of Frank were only looking for cheap excuses for violence against Jews and any other outsider they didn't consider part of their small tent collection. (Update: Phagan is actually an Irish name, but it sure sounds reminiscent of some Jewish names.)

Frank only got a partial pardon all this time. It's high time he receive a full pardon, and Conley get a posthumous conviction.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
