People is people, and will always seek that pound of flesh. Lynching has been illegal for decades, and I hope a special place in Hell is reserved for those participants, like those who lynched Byrd in Vidor, TX not that many years ago.
I ask you though, why should any public servant sign on to something that has been federal law for decades? Politically correctness? While you're busy listing Republicans, how about giving the political affiliation of that lyncher, and his cohorts, while you're at it, at the time of the commision of the crime? If you want to wax political, they were all Democrats, to save you some time. Does that mean the Democratic leadership is full of Klansmen? Nope. Does that mean those listed Republicans should sign on? Nope. It's a PR and PC moment, and should be seen as such. It does absolutely nothing for the families of gang violence, even gang violence 40 years past. Heal old wounds? Nope. No amount of 'measures' will bring back their beloved, or heal the hate. That takes the very thing Congress has tried to destroy, thanks to special interest: faith in Something Greater.
