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 teens 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. (Its) 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 mans 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.
No party affiliation mentioned.
Sounds like BS to me.
Looks like he assaulted the mentally handicapped person.
Not buying it.
Based on what?
Well he could be a Democrap.
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.
Too many hoaxes in the past.
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.
I hope they can prove it beyond doubt and the "judge" at a minimum is fired, arrested for assault, and sued by the family.
He’s a republican.
Someone posting a comment said he’s a Republican. If you haven’t taken your blood pressure meds, do read the comments at the link!
An exception to the rule, I guess.
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.)
He meant to say, “Forrest.”
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. “
The comments are pretty funny. Nothing like painting with a broad brush, and people don’t get burned out of neighborhoods in the northeast for being the wrong color.
