30. I believe that is the killing of 3 Civil Rights activists in Philadelphia, Mississippi.


The city is famous for two things:

1. A group of men murdered 3 Civil Rights activists then were acquitted by an all White jury even after bragging about committing the murders. They could not then be retried because that would violate the double jepoardy clause in the Constitution. This is why we now have Federal hate crimes enabling the Feds to go after those sheltered by local government.

2. Ronald Reagan announced his candidacy there in 1980. His speech, centered on State Rights (Powers), can only be interpreted as support for the above action since the city's only claim to fame was exercising their right to kill Civil Rights activists.
