Execution set for tomorrow for ringleader in South Carolina’s most notorious racially motivated murder.

In 1992, three black men kidnapped a white woman. Then gang raped, and tortured her. They invited two more black males friends over to join in the gang rape, telling them “we captured a white woman.” Two of the rapists black girlfriends even watched and cheered them on.

Her body was found on the side of a highway shot five times. A note containing anti-white racial slurs was attached to the body. Four of the black men were quickly arrested and told police the savage crime was payback for “racial oppression.” They claimed ringleader Gardner told them, “my news years resolution is to kill a white b*tch.”
