“If you stand on the sidelines and do nothing, shame on you,” DuBose said. “If you allow this witch hunt to continue … you’re already in the wrong ballpark.”
Marcus Coleman, president of the National Action Network, likened the FBI to a dog with a bone.
“Dogs take the meat off the bone,” he said. “Then they go to the most secluded areas and they dig deep and bury their bone.”
Coleman alleged that the FBI is investigating Brooks to hide its failure to capture those responsible for the 1946 lynching of four African-Americans in Walton County. Two black couples were murdered on Moore’s Ford Bridge that year. No one was ever convicted of the crime, and Brooks said he has reason to believe federal agents were involved.
