I called the number that I posted in the other thread and my call was returned by the sista that is behind this push to get them freed. She told me how this happened. Mississippi back then had a white sheriff,and at the time it was a "dry county",the sheriff got caught selling liquor and lost his bar. The father of these girls took over the bar and turned it into a sandwich shop,the son of the sheriff tried to shake down the father but he refused to pay. The sheriff vowed to get him but never could,so he told him that since i can't get you i will go after your daughters. What makes this bad is that the sheriff at the time was blacks and his forced the boys to lie on the Scott sisters and the rest is history. I also was told that the one sister that is close to dying has been vomiting everyday now for the pass week,one time she was sick the prison would not seek help for her until people started cussing and jumping up and down to get something done, but they took it out on the sisters. So she said that they have to conduct themselves in a way that the prison won't take it out on them. Her PH# is 1-843-217-4649 Sorry,she forgot to give her name and I forgot to ask. She said to help we can write letters and call editors of news papers,anything to have this story get as much attention as possible. Peace!
