Clemons' victims denied their chance

August 25, 2013 

Has anyone watched the news reports on murderer Reggie Clemons? Some of the TV stationsare trying to portray Clemons as not getting a fair trial.

He took part in brutal rape and a brutal murder of two innocent young girls -- now he says he is not guilty and says he was coerced into pleading guilty. However, when the prosecutors pressed him on the court stand, he took the Fifth Amendment 30 times.

Those two girls never got that chance; they were raped and murdered.
