Interview with John McLaurin
QUESTION 37
INTERVIEWER:

WERE YOU AFRAID THAT HE MIGHT GET KILLED AND WHAT WOULD THAT HAVE MEANT IN MISSISSIPPI. I, I KNOW THE FEDERAL PEOPLE WERE AFRAID THAT SOMEBODY WOULD GET HIM.

John McLaurin:

Yeah, it would have been bad had he been killed uh, it would have caused a lot of uh, hard feelings toward Mississippi and on, in looking back it's better that he wasn't killed.
