Mississippi Judge Accused of Yelling ‘Run, n-----, Run’ After Smacking Mentally Handicapped Man
New York Daily News ^ | May 25, 2014 | Deborah Hastings

Posted on 05/27/2014 11:05:18 AM PDT by nickcarraway

Madison County jurist allegedly twice struck young man, called him the n-word. Witnesses said the incident happened at public flea market.

A judge in central Mississippi slapped a young black man in the back of the head and yelled “Run, n----r, run,” the teen’s parents claim in a police report.

The allegations against Madison County Justice Court judge Bill Weisenberger, who is white, will be weighed by a grand jury.

“This is 2014,” said former Canton mayor William Truly, who now heads the local NAACP, according to The Clarion-Ledger. (It’s) “not 1960, where someone could slap a young man and call out “run n-----, run.” Weisenberger was moonlighting as a security officer at the Canton Flea Market when the incident allegedly occurred two weeks ago.

Eric Rivers, 20, was asking for work at the open-air market when Weisenberger accosted him, the young man’s parents said in their complaint.

Truly demanded that Weisenberger step down at a news conference on Friday.

“No citizen should have to face justice before a judge who holds such a high degree of racial animus and hatred,” he said.

Flea market vendor Cathy Hendrix told the newspaper she and others routinely rely on locals who help unload goods.

She said Rivers was standing on the sidewalk, asking if anyone needed help.

“That young man was wanting to work to earn money to buy a bike,” she said.

Her sister, Tammy Westbrook, said she saw Weisenberger “rear back and slap” Rivers twice, the newspaper reported.

As Rivers ran away, she said the judge yelled after him “run boy, run” and “run, n-----, run.”

Weisenberger did not return phone calls asking for comment, the paper said.

A Madison County Justice Court judge is accused of striking a mentally challenged young man and using a racial slur.

They have a white witness a vendor at the flea market.

From above link "Under Mississippi law, the only requirement to be elected a Justice Court judge is a high school diploma. After taking office, the judges are required to take up to six hours of training a year."

Doesn't look good for this judge.

He should be forced to sell everything he has and be banned from attending any flea markets for the rest of his life.

Why would someone do that? Why would he hit the kid? I am not buying this. The “family” most likely has something against the judge.

This claim rings true. Over the past few decades I doubted all such claims and it seems to me that more often than not the claim was indeed a hoax.

I hope they can prove it beyond doubt and the "judge" at a minimum is fired, arrested for assault, and sued by the family.

If so, then the only infraction here would be assault.
But a slap on the back sounds more jovial than anything.
So if an assault took place, then the courts should focus on that, not what was said like the race baiters are making it all about.

(”run n***** run!” sounds like some of the football game parties I’ve been to.)

Erom the comments at the link;

“Sean Hannity, Rush Limbags, Glenn Beck, G. Gordon Libby, Mark Levin, Michael Savage, the RNC, the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Alderson will defend this bigoted Judge. If you notice how the reich wing commentators are MIA on this article.”

“If you notice that Dennis Smith is MIA on this article because this judge and like Dennis Smith are Tea Party Bigot Supporters. Dennis Smith and this bigoted judge are hoping that Chris McDaniels win the GOP Primary. “

Of course - a set up. Someone grabbed the judge's hand & slapped the other guy while a ventriloquist yelled the slur.

Party affiliation is totally meaningless. As one example among many, Jacob Javits was also a Republican but was clearly not a Conservative. This judge is obviously a leftist plant and part of another Alinsky-style false flag operation.

Mississippi, Alabama are two of the most racist states, next to Texas.

Even that extreme leftist "chef" Anthony Bourdain (of Parts Unknown shown on a commie outfit, CNN) had to grudgingly admit that race relations were worse up there in Yankeeland than in beautiful Mississippi. The Magnolia State is among the most Christian and Conservative of the all. It's also Right-to-Work unlike the unionized slave states of the north. The great state of Mississippi is pro-freedom and pro-liberty because union thugs are held in check.

Good point. Just because he is a Republican in Mississippi does not mean that he is a conservative. Could very well be a plant or a liberal Democrat who ran as a Republican.

My brother-in-law is a real estate lawyer. His father was a justice of the peace (JOP) in a tiny city. He was a nice man and very well respect, but had absolutely no legal credentials. In the seventies they would arraign people in the driveway of their house and turn them lose, if possible, to avoid jailing them.

HUH? NOT IMHO!

Thank you very much, dearest re_nortex.

I haven't watched any news, so this is the first I've heard or read about it. I hope I have the correct information. I only watched the linked video. I haven't read any newspapers.

We don't register to vote here by party affiliation and as a matter of fact, when we vote, we can ask for either party's (or parties) ballot, for instance in primaries.

This idiot likely ran as a Republican. That's meaningless to me, but not to the majority of the democrat black community, I'm all but certain.

Unfortunately, it's crap like this, from one, power-hungry idiot, that fuels indignant folks in the black community who still harbor their own issues for their own gain and reasons, so this thing is likely far from over. I'm just praying that good people won't get harmed and that the big mouths will be silenced and shamed, and of course that this shameful idiot will "get whatever's supposed to lawfully and justly come to him." He's on the bench? Wow.... just my reaction to his photo. God bless you all.

There are a lot of terrible hoaxes, but do you honestly believe that no white person ever does anything wrong? It seems like has changed a lot in the last 10 year. It wasn't like it is today, and I think going away from the Reagan model is a mistake.

Right. That's why they were burning school buses in Boston so their kids didn't have to go to school with "those people" a full seven years after Maryland schools were integrated.

NIMBY, anyone?

Of course not. My original post stated that I was hesitant to believe that this event was true. My last post was that time would tell. I may be sceptical, but if it is your intent to imply that I am racist, I would have to say that is unfair.
