I went to this trial back in June. It was fascinating. Wild things happen in a MS courtroom...

Well, there were Seale's two grandsons who showed up for closing arguments. They were both quite large, strapping young men, jeans, work boots, and did I mention...skin heads!!!! Not to say that perfectly upstanding citizens can't shave their heads, but I found it pretty interesting that the two grandsons of a purported Klansmen showed up looking like neo-Nazis. Quite a last impression for the jury. I sat right behind Seale's wife and listened to her little comments about the trial. Hardly anything to post on here, but it was nasty...
