Mississippi Burning (1988) Poster

Pruitt Taylor Vince: Lester Cowens


  • Lester Cowans : [after the three civil rights workers are killed]  You only left me a nigger, but at least I shot me a nigger.

  • [about the black passenger] 

    Lester Cowans : I didn't kill him, I only shot him in the ass.

    Anderson : We know that. He was already dead when you put your slug in him. But your buddy sees it differently. He says it like YOU killed the kid. Now either you go on the record with us right now, or it'll be YOUR ass we're talking about, not just the black kid's!

  • Clayton Townley : Alright, I just want to know one thing. Who the hell called this meeting?

    Sheriff Ray Stuckey : We thought you did.

    Lester Cowans : You mean you didn't set this up?

    Clayton Townley : Of this group? Are you stupid?
