Tulsa attorney Clark Brewster held a news conference this afternoon to announce that he will defend Good Friday shootings suspect Jake England.
Brewster said he made the decision to provide his service for free after receiving a letter from England's mother, Teri Alexander, who is incarcerated Mabel Bassett Correctional Center in McLoud. The letter described England's difficult childhood and asked for his help, Brewster said.
"Our family does not hate black people," Alexander wrote in her letter.
Brewster also said that after interviewing England over the past week, he does not believe that England has any animosity toward black people
If they don’t charge black mobs attacking whites as a hate crime, they should not prosecute a Native American who shoots up blacks as a hate crime.
Equality before the law, without regard to race, means something.
It may be wise not to be wise to bring a baseball bat to a gunfight.
However, that has nothing to do with the current case and the current case hangs three murders on England.
Jake and his sidekick will never see the light of day and will likely be executed.
Joe England and Alvin Watts have much larger problems than being charged with a hate crime which only carries the possibility of one year in prison in Oklahoma. The primary charge of first degree murder carries the death penalty.
Sorry that was in response to Uncle Slayton.
Actually I obviously don’t have a clue who I’m responding to. lol
They murdered (if convicted) and I don’t care if they are subject to the death penality like, hopefully everyone else, w/o regard to race.
“Hate” crimes has nothing to do with this unless it is equally applied to every US citizen. It’s not. “Hate crime” is nothing more than a far left voter registration drive.
Ahh. . .yes. . .I do love classic country-western songs.
That was uncalled for. Noprogs posted a SONG LYRIC. What kind of person resorts to the *f word* on an open forum in response to a lyric? Even if you don’t know the song, ask for clarification before descending into the gutter. A simple courtesy, which is sorely lacking on FR these days. Give a little grace to people, for goodness sake.
