"The conviction of Edgar Ray Killen comes on the 41st anniversary of the brutal murders of three civil rights workers for which he was convicted," writes Vernon Jordan. "And it demonstrates that the South in general and Mississippi in particular are no longer places where racists can get a free pass for their atrocities. What happened today was a kind of justice very different from historic Southern and Mississippi injustice. While it cannot restore Michael Schwerner, James Earl Chaney, and Andrew Goodman to the lives so viciously taken from them in their youth, it has redeemed to an extent the honor of the region, the political courage of its leaders, and the integrity of its justice system. It also proves again what I learned at my mother's knee, that 'the Lord moves in mysterious ways his wonders to perform.'" (Huffington Post)
