VIDEO: Rev. Delbert Singleton speaks at Stinney memorial stone unveiling

Posted on June 16, 2014 3:03 pm by Robert Joseph Baker

The Rev. Delbert Singleton spoke about a memorial stone unveiled for George Stinney Jr. near Alcolu on Saturday as a stone representing hope for all of those “unjustly” convicted and executed. Second-cousins of the 14-year-old boy executed 70 years ago today for the murders of 11-year-old Betty June Binnicker and 7-year-old Mary Emma Thames joined members of A New Day to place a headstone for the boy, who never had a headstone placed at his true place of burial. The family has kept that place a secret for fear of reprisals.

Security measures included immediately locking down the base, she said.

No one was shot and no one was injured, but the base will not let anyone on nor allow anyone to leave, she explained.

“Right now we’re still on lockdown,” she said, about 1:40 p.m. and was unsure how long the lockdown will remain in place.
