Next, imagine this crowd full of white people cheering as if their alma mater had just scored a game-winning touchdown once the judge decides to reduce the bail amount for this white man accused of murdering his son or daughter.
|Black character firmly on display...|
Done imagining this scenario?
Well, it happened with black people...[Judge Cuts Timothy Batts' Bond In Half; He Bonds Out Hours Later, News Channel 5 August 13, 2016]:
The Hendersonville man accused of killing his 11-year-old daughter appeared in court where a judge cut his bond in half.
Timothy Batts' bond of $1 million was reduced Friday to $500,000. The courtroom was filled with Batt's supporters who cheered after the announcement.
The bond reduction came with stipulations if Batts does bond out of jail.
The judge informed Batts he would be on supervised bond, he would have to pass drug and alcohol tests, and he could not get any other charges of any kind against him. Otherwise, the judge added Batts would be taken back to jail immediately with his bond revoked.
Batts bonded out of jail late Friday night, hours after the judge made the decision.
He was charged with reckless homicide in the death of his daughter, Timea.
Things get a little rowdy. Judge asks everyone to leave after bond reduced @NC5 pic.twitter.com/DKZwoMaVWO— Alexandra Koehn (@NC5_AKoehn) August 12, 2016
Batts originally told police she was shot while getting off the school bus. But he later confessed that he accidentally shot her after being startled when she arrived home from her first day of 6th grade.
Patrick Starnes, Timothy Batts' uncle, was called as a witness. He confirmed they support Batts.
Starnes said, "He’s not a person that’s violent he’s not a person that’s going out into the community and committing crimes, again within the last 4 years he had turned his life around and was trying to live according to the law."
A detective with the Hendersonville police department said they recovered home surveillance video that showed Batts walking around the home on the phone with a gun before Timea walked in.
Neil Harri said, "The defendant has video cameras in his home, an ADT security system. We were able to recover some video from ADT. The video shows that 5 minutes before Timea arrived home from school, Mr. Batts was walking through his home on the phone with a gun in his hand at the time.”
His friends started an online petition to get his bond reduced so that he may be released for his daughter's funeral. The petition had almost 11,000 signatures.
Outside the court house friends and family were chanting and carrying signs. The defendant's stepfather said they set up an account at Suntrust to raise money to post bail.
Jeffery Starnes said, “They know how good of a guy he is they know that his other kids need him in they life and that’s the reason they was shouting and going what they doing because the a million dollar bond was impossible to make we’ll make this one.”
In addition to being charged with reckless homicide, he's also jailed on charges of tampering with evidence, false reporting and being a felon with a firearm.He was turning around his life!
If you ever wondered why black people will spontaneously riot on behalf of a black thug (think career criminal Sylville Smith, who after being shot by a black officer in Milwaukee, saw a shockingly large number of blacks burn buildings and attack white people in his memory), look no further than a courtroom of black room exploding in excitement when a black male accused of murdering his own daughter got his bailed reduced by half.
America is only irredeemable, because we granted black people citizenship and the right to vote (which set in motion every ill that now threatens us presently, ensuring we have no future).
