    >> The unanimous vote to pardon came almost two years after the state House and Senate voted to formally apologize to relatives of the Groveland Four and to ask then-Gov. Rick Scott to pardon the men. Scott, now a U.S. senator, never took action. DeSantis replaced Scott on Tuesday and made the pardons a priority. <<​

    What an irony. Rick Scott monkeyed this up and needed DeSantis to fix it.

    A doctor concluded the woman probably wasn't raped at all, and the information was withheld from court. Even in 1949 that's some crazy shit. A doctor's conclusion withheld from court.

    Probably wasn't raped. Probably?

    The victim was telling the truth and the rapists got delayed black privilege .

    Delayed black privilege? One was murdered before he was charged. Another was shot by police before being convicted. The other two died years before being pardoned. Black privilege sucks.

    It doesn't matter if the doctor said "probably". How is a doctor's conclusion withheld from a trial?

    Because there were no medical conclusions just speculations.

    It's not relevant to the case.
