WILLIAMSON — From the days of the Hatfields and McCoys to the well-deserved of “Bloody Mingo” to the “selling” of the Sheriff’s office for $100,000 to the brutal beating of a teenager on a downtown Williamson street, the history of Mingo is filled with justice and injustice.
While everyone at the Corridor Chronicle agrees many Mingo Countians ar among the finest people in the world, it is time to stand up for truth and justice. No longer should thugs and lawbreakers rule the day in a county with so much potential for greatness.
We are, therefore, seeking more information about the historical injustices in Mingo. While we know about many, there are folks all over the county who tell us new stories every day. We’d like to compile these into one easy-to-find report. Again, it will not be a condemnation of Mingo County. Rather, it will be an effort to exhort honest, law-abiding citizens to stand up for the rights to which they are justly do.
