This is a very complex 'rant' and although there appears to be some 'facts' included, about the killing and those responsible for it. The rest looks like a character attack against 'Hillary Clinton', which appears to be based on rumour, speculation and pure fantasy . 

As to the 'Paul Harvey' connection, the only piece that is quoted is this: "the rest of the story". This may well be a quote from Paul Harvey, but probably has no connection in regard to this story, and has almost certainly been tagged on to it to try and give it more credibility....

This was interesting thought I'd pass it to you.

- Conveniently Forgotten Facts Back in 1969 a group of Black Panthers decided that a fellow black Panther named ... Alex Rackley needed to die.

Rackley was suspected of disloyalty. Rackley was first tied to a chair. Once safely immobilized, his friends tortured him for hours by, among other things, pouring boiling water on him. When they got tired of torturing Rackley, Black Panther member, Warren Kimbo took Rackley outside and put a bullet in his head. Rackley's body was later found floating in a river about 25 miles north of New Haven, Conn. Perhaps at this point you're curious as to what happened to these Black Panthers. In 1977, that's only eight years later, only one of the killers was still in jail.

The shooter, Warren Kimbro, managed to get a scholarship to Harvard, and became good friends with none other than Al Gore. He later became an assistant dean at an Eastern Connecticut State College. Isn't that something? As a '60s radical you can pump a bullet into someone's head, and a few years later, in the same state, you can become an assistant
college dean! Only in America! 

Erica Huggins was the lady who served the Panthers by boiling the water for Mr. Rackley's torture. Some years later Ms. Huggins was elected to a California School Board. How in the world do you think these killers got off so easy? Maybe it was in some part due to the efforts of two people who Came to the defense of the Panthers. These two people actually went so far as to shut down Yale University with demonstrations in defense of the accused Black Panthers during their trial. One of these people was none other than Bill Lan Lee. 

Mr. Lee, or Mr. Lan Lee, as the case may be, isn't a college dean. He isn't a member of a California School Board. He is now head of the US Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, appointed by none other than Bill Clinton. O.K., so who was the other Panther defender? Is this other Notable Panther defender now a school board member? Is this other Panther apologist now an assistant college dean? No, Neither! 

The other Panther defender was, like Lee, a radical law student at Yale University at the time. She is now known as The "smartest woman In the world." She is none other than the Democratic senator from the State of New York----our former
First Lady, the incredible Hillary Rodham Clinton.

And now, as Paul Harvey said; You know "the rest of the story". Pass this on! This deserves the widest possible press.

Here's another version circulating. that claims that Paul Harvey is the author:

Personal note by Scotty: At a time when we find ourselves asking the question, "How could something like this happen in America?".....because we let it.
