I would have thought they would have checked his medical condition out with some physicians before determining whether he indeed is wheelchair bound or not.

If indeed being wheelchair bound was why they let him be on bond, it is a shame they based it on this without evidence.

Just my thoughts.

A judge sent Edgar Ray Killen, the former Klansman convicted of the 1964 killing of three civil rights workers in, Mississippi, back to prison yesterday, saying Mr. Killen had deceived the court about his health when he asked to be released on bond.

....

Rita Bender, the widow of Mr. Schwerner, said it was important to show that racial violence would not go unpunished. "In some ways the issue was not whether Edgar Ray Killen could walk or not," she said. "The point is that Edgar Ray Killen was and is a danger to the community."
