They’re Still Lynching in Louisiana?

These two young men are the friends of a 18 year African American man who was hanged in Pineville, Louisiana:

Police are running down every lead they get in connection with the death of a teen found hanging in a tree Sunday morning in Pineville. While Pineville Police officers haven’t classified the death as either a homicide or a suicide — it is an “open investigation” — the family is adamant that Marcus Phillips didn’t kill himself. “I am not going to let this go by as if he killed himself,” Phillips’ older sister, Victoria Phillips, said Monday. “He didn’t do this to himself.”

Marcus Phillips was found hanging from a tree in an empty lot on the corner of Sanders and Lee streets, Pineville Police Sgt. Darryl Basco said. A rope was around Phillips’ neck, and the rope was tied to a chain that has been hanging in that tree for years, neighbors said. The chain and rope both were removed sometime before Monday.

Jack Evans was the one who discovered the teen’s body. “I came out here at 7:30 to drink some coffee and smoke a cigarette and heard something in the grass so I turned around to look, and then I saw it,” he said, doing then exactly as he did that morning. “I stood up and wiped my eyes and looked again and said, ‘Oh, my God, there’s a black kid hanging in the tree. Somebody has killed him.’ So I called the police.” Evans said Phillips’ body was partially on the ground with his knees about six to eight inches from the ground and his arms hanging out in front of him. Both his mouth and his eyes were open.

“It sure does look suspicious to me,” Evans said. “All he had to do was stand up. That’s instinct.” Evans said that although he didn’t know Phillips, he had seen the teen often walking up and down the street, and said Phillips had always been pleasant. “I want some closure,” Evans said. “Something like this happening in our neighborhood, I want to know who and why. Every time I walk out here I see him hanging there. It is so sad. He was just a 17-year-old kid.” Evans said it doesn’t seem likely that Phillips or anyone else hanged him there to die. Instead, he suspects the teen was killed somewhere else and brought there.

This is some bullsh*t. That town is as small as a dime, so finding the culprits should not be that hard. SMH

  • http://stewartsynopsis.com/Site%20Index.htm We "Blacks" Are The REAL Hebrew Israelites

    They’ve always been killing Hebrews. Lynching is part of the Deuteronomy curses that were brought down upon our heads for abandoning Yah.

    We’re in The Last Days so things are going to get worse before they get better.

  • okk

    when will people learn killing people cause they are diff colour is nuts one thing to dislike but kill thats evil in u

  • Jubeisan

    God does not punish people. Humans do that all by themselves. You are a religious pawn.

  • Come On People

    How are we going to assume that the people that killed him were of a different race? Lets wait till the facts come out.

  • somedude

    Its funny them Nola nuggas will kill and shoot another black quick as hell…and even brag about it. But when it comes to white people lynching them they turn the other way as if they dont see it.

  • ROCKKIE

    WTF is going on in the world?!

    Town maybe small as a dime but that in no way suggest that crime will be solved quickly. If anything it could hinder it because in this case you could truly have people in the community that didn’t see or hear anything suspicious.

    Plus it doesn’t help that this happened in Louisiana. The only states that probably hate blacks more is Mississippi and Alabama.

    posted this story on twitter. Hopefully more people will hear about it. I truly hope the kid didn’t kill himself.

    C’mon the town is named Pineville, it sceams a hick/trailor park/redneck kind of town, duh.

  • Clue for sale...

    I’m not an atheist but Jubesian is right… God didn’t have anything to do with this. God gave each and every one of us a will independent of the most high. Every religion may not agree on a lot of things but they agree on that point (that God greatest gift to us is free will).

    Racism dead…Ignorance bred! I bet the poor kid never knew he had it coming. COWARDS & CRIMINALS ARE FREE!!!

  • Meredith

    im very VERY UPSET about this. This is where i am from. And yes it is a tiny town but it has about 10,000 or so. Pineville is known as the white side of town and Alexandria is known as the black side, so for some odd reason, i am not overly suprised. A lot of black people live on that side of pineville..and most of the white people that do live in that neighborhood are “down” if you know what i mean. This is such a sad day for me. RIP Young man
