Rhodes Scholar Ex-FSU Myron Rolle Compares Jameis to Emmett Till
Even Rhodes Scholars Tweet stupid, ignorant and offensive things.
For those of you not aware, Emmett Till was a 14-year-old boy who was murdered for allegedly flirting with a white woman. He was beaten, had one of his eyes gouged out, before being shot in the head and thrown in the river.
I don’t think that is quite the same as a college football player being accused of sexually assaulting a woman he just met in the club where the details of what happened are sketchy at best.
Rolle is speaking out because as we reported earlier the NY Times did a piece on the shoddy police work in that investigation. It did not slander Jameis, it simply pointed out the huge mistakes in the case, some which could have cleared Jameis if done properly.
Book smarts, doesn’t always means you have the best common sense, Rolle should know better.
