The federal authorities promise to thoroughly investigate the death of two African-Americans from California, found hanging from a tree.
These are two separate incidents, but their FBI agents combined them into one thing. While both cases are seen as suicides, the public needs to pinpoint the causes of death for men from Southern California as part of countering racial injustice.
First, Robert Fuller from Palmdale was found, then Malcolm Harsch from Victorville. In both cases, they did not find any signs of murder. Local sheriffs and the FBI are investigating both cases, but their initial suicide findings sparked protests over the weekend.
Activists believe that men could be lynched and called on investigators to investigate the possibility of hate crimes.
