Smack Down, Southern Style

Western Journalism:

It Takes Just 40 Seconds For This Awesome Southern Judge To Smack Down A Gang Member

She’s being called the “Southern Judge Judy” for her tough, direct, no-nonsense demeanor in her Tennessee courtroom. Lila Statom laid down the law for a reputed gang member, O’Shea Smith, when he appeared before her on an attempted murder charge and referred to a public housing development as his “hood.”

The video of that verbal smackdown has gone viral, with a lot of viewers leaving comments thanking Hamilton County Judge Statom for her firm stance on the gang violence that has rocked Chattanooga in recent months. Chattanooga police say there’s a violent war being waged among several gangs, including the Gangster Disciples of which Smith, the suspect in the attempted murder, is a known member.

Kudos to the Judge – that’s how it’s done in the South.

    Awesome. Now if they could just take his sorry butt straight to the execution chamber and save the taxpayers some money it would be perfect.

    Sure a bit different that the black judge who let the armed robbers off with probation and verbally attacked the white victims as racist because their 3-year old daughter is now scared of black men.

    Good to know that there are some judges that aren’t devout leftists and are on the people’s side for a change.

    I got tired of typing it over and over and over again….so I have a file full of true stories of my life trying to teach African Americans theirs job during the implementation of Affirmative Action.
    They can come up with more excuses of why they act like they do…what it boils down to?
    We let them go too far out of fear of being referred to as RACISTS — when in actuality, they are the Most racist people along with the Muslims I have ever known of.
    It has now gown to a Population Insanity by giving into them!
    I have repeated this soooo many times. NO ONE from the U.S. sailed over to Africa to STEAL or Kidnap Africans.
    After a tribal war, the losers were sold into slavery. IF they committed a crime, they were sold into slavery.

    The FIRST slave owners here in the U.S. were freed Africans.
