Sign petition: Explain or resign, Judge Jones!

edith-jones.jpgImpartiality is the baseline for being a judge. Yet Edith Jones, a federal judge in Texas, said in a recent speech that "racial groups like African-Americans and Hispanics are predisposed to crime," according to a complaint filed by civil rights organizations and legal experts. The complaint reveals more disturbing statements from Judge Jones:

  • Concerns about racism in the legal system are just "red herrings."
  • It's disgusting to claim that some capital defendants are mentally retarded.
  • Mexicans in prison would rather be on death row in the United States.
  • Death sentences are actually a favor because they force criminals to make peace with God.

Jones is refusing to respond to the allegations, but if they're true, she has no business being on the bench. Sign the petition below to demand that Judge Edith Jones resign immediately or bring evidence that eyewitnesses were wrong. She is legally entitled to be a racist, but she is not entitled to be a federal judge.

    Nothing you say is true of Judge Jones. She said that Blacks and Hispanics are more likely to be faced with violence in their lives and due to economic conditions, that is a simple yet sad fact. You race baiters are always looking for ways to escape personal responsibility. Go home. Be parents. Raise your children. Teach your children to be self-sufficient rather than life-long and generational welfare dependents. Judge Jones’ words were twisted by Al Sharpton-like race baiters.

    Clearly unfit to be a judge. BTW, a vote for Wendy Davis will help to negate judges like this.

    Judge Edith Jones need to resign,every Black person and Hispanic case need to be reopen because of what she said. I don’t think they got a fair trail and sentenced.

    yes, I’ll be glad to sign the petition.. I know my judge in our case was not impartial and appeared to be bored during all our proceedings and hearings… I signed a plea and did not go to trial, but wish I had went to trial to get all the corruption exposed, which the officials covered up the violations of rights and outright lies of the lead investigator!! How can these people who are appointed or elected to these powerful positions look at themselves in the mirror when they deliver so much injustice? They must be just doing a job and don’t care about justice, nor do they appear to have a conscience. Heaven help them on judgment day!!
