Same here, except I read about it here at FR a few years ago.

Somebody needs to make a big-budget movie about this!

Wasn't this true story made into a movie or TV show?

I once saw an old movie featuring something similar, where a returning GI gets involved against an entire corrupt town/county. A black man was killed and a number of other citizens are either killed or beaten up and threatened with death or the death of their families.
