FC: Train Ride To Troublesville

1: On a fine beautiful day there were nine black boys that loaded a train to Alabama. On the train there was two white homeless men that decided to pick trouble with the black boys. The boys wasn't going to take to much disrespect from them so the boys pushed to the two white men off the train

2: when the boys fell off the train the got up an ran straight to the sheriff's office. they told the sheriff that the boys assaulted them an then pushed them off the train. The sheriff sent a search party to find them.

3: the sheriff searched high an low for the nine black boys. He went to just about every train station to track these boys down.The half way to Alabama the sheriff found the nine black boys.

4: once the black boys were found they were taken down town for questioning. It really didn't make a difference because they already knew no one would believe them. so once the interrogation was over they were charged with assault.

5: Not minutes after being caught two white girls was with them. So that the white girls wouldn't get in trouble for getting on the train without tickets they lied on the boys saying they sexually assaulted them. That was another charge brought on them

7: Once that charge was brought against them that made everything worse. They were charged for two assaults an 8 boys were sentenced to death an the 9th boy was sentenced to life in prison. While on trial the medical examiner found no evidence stating the girls were raped, but the jury didn't want to hear that they charged the boys with it anyway.A lot of people felt this was injustice an wrong so some of the organizations just ignored it but the others u just couldn't do that.

9: The communist party sent an appeal to the supreme court for a new trial. The trial would be different this time, the boys would be tried separately instead of together. so they set two trials up for two different boys.

11: The trial Powell v Alabama didn't go as well as planned the same thing happened the boy was convicted an sent to jail.

13: Since that trial didn't go the way the wanted to they tried another boy that was also charged. This case which was known as Norris v Alabama in this trial they found the 14th amendment was violated. In this trial they discussed whether to drop the case of the boys.

15: The people sat an talked about and thought about it until they came to their final agreement.

16: from sunrise all through the day the boys thought about the mistakes they have made in the past

17: and during the night the boys wished they were out enjoying life and having fun they should have been doing

18: The came back when the boys had to go back to that horrible scary place called the courtroom.

19: The jury made the announcement after nine long years that the boys case was dropped an that they could go about their business

21: The boys were so happy to hear these news so they left an lived happily ever after!!!
