Klan Member Gets Immunity to Testify in James Ford Seale Trial
Friday May 4, 2007 - CNN.com reported that one of the two Ku Klux Klan members originally charged with the 1964 kidnapping, beating and murder of two 19-year old African-Americans in Missisippi will receive immunity in exchange for his testimony against 71 year-old James Ford Seale.
The horrifying details of this brutal crime were the subject of a gripping February 2007 documentary produced and directed by David Ridgen in cooperation with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation - the man holding the picture is Thomas Moore, brother of victim Charles Eddie Moore, one of the two victims who were kidnapped, by Seale and other Klansmen, tortured, duct-taped and wrapped in plastic while still alive then thrown into a turnk and driven a hundred miles where they were both tied to train rails and a Jeep block and thrown into the Ole River in Talluah, Louisiana.
The smiling young man is Thomas' brother Charles.
