Re: A Sitting Texas Judge Called for the Hanging of A Black Suspect

Kocolicious ·
He is a sitting judge who should be DISBARRED. He is supposed to be impartial and to POST his personal views on a case that he will judge? There should be OUTRAGE and a review committee meeting immediately to REMOVE him from the bench. Reminds of the Scotsboro Boys who were convicted before being tried. This judge have NO BUSINESS in court. None. But!
