Got the Fucker.....

Having studied the civil rights movement in America in the 1960s whilst at university, this story is particularly pleasing (from the BBC):

A former Ku Klux Klan member has been charged with kidnapping and conspiracy in connection with the 1964 murders of two black teenagers in Mississippi.

James Seale, a 71-year-old former sheriff's deputy, denies the charges.

The dead men, Charles Eddie Moore and Henry Hezekiah Dee, were long thought to have been abducted by the white supremacist group while hitchhiking.

The beaten and decomposed bodies of the two 19-year-olds were found in the Mississippi River two months later.

Mr Seale, who was arrested on Wednesday, appeared in court in Jackson, Mississippi, charged with two counts of kidnapping and one count of conspiracy to commit kidnapping.

If convicted, I hope he rots.
