Judge Bill Weisenberger

Reported by Dr. Sinclair Grey III

Bigotry never seems to end. As soon as we finish dealing with racial nuances from one side of the pendulum, there arises something new that catches our attention and makes us scratch our heads.

A Mississippi Justice Court judge is accused of slapping a black man and yelling at him ‘Run n-gger run.’ The suspect in this case is Madison County’s Justice Judge Bill Weisenberger. He’s accused of striking 20-year-old Eric Rivers, who is mentally challenged, on May 8 at the Canton Flea Market.

As you can imagine, this issue is being investigated to the fullest degree. The president of the Canton branch of the NAACP, William Truly, said ‘…This is 2014, not 1960, where someone could slap a young man and call out, Run, n-gger run.’

If the allegations prove to be true, Weisenberger’s action(s) would be seen as a violation of multiple canons of the Judicial Code of Conduct.

[Weisenberger is a former law enforcement officer and former emergency operations director]

Truly and other members of the NAACP want  Weisenberger to step down from hearing cases until his case has been resolved. Some are calling for his immediate resignation. In a news conference on Friday, Truly said, ‘No citizen should have to face justice before a judge who holds such a high degree of racial animus and hatred.’ The NAACP plans to file complaints with the state and Justice Department.

Two witnesses who were vendors at the flea market stated that vendors depend on local people to help them unload their vehicles. All who help are paid for their assistance. Rivers was standing on the sidewalk waiting to help in order to earn money to purchase a bike. Apparently, Weisenberger didn’t like that and slapped him and even bragged about what he had done.

One of the witnesses who got into a verbal altercation with Weisenberger said, he ‘…seemed to be suffering from an authoritative complex and was making sure that everyone knew that.’ Weisenberger was in law enforcement attire.

There is sure to be plenty of news surrounding this story. As a note: Under Mississippi law, the only requirement to be elected a Justice Court judge is a high school diploma. After taking office, the judges are required to take up to six hours of training a year.

  1. I can not bring myself to be angry at a white person who uses the "N" word, when ignorant black people use it (and attempt to justify using it) as a so-called, "term of endearment." I think the good judge is guilty of nothing more than assaulting that young man.

  2. Teddy Parker, you are just as ignorant as the very people you criticize. It is never acceptable to use that word!!!!!

  3. Thank you Ms Redd for setting that ignorant stumble bum straight.
    Mr. Parker reference to that pathetic imbecile, Wiesenburger, as the good judge is misplaced.

  4. Teddy Parker, you are a fool! How would you like for this bigoted moron to decide your fate in his court!

  5. It's true that no one should use the word.. But we can't excuse racial attacks by White people becuase of ignorant Black people, Ignorant Black people do not justify racism. Racist White people don't have a point. Black people want to lessen the relevence of racism because the racists have power and we want to be a part of the powerful group. We childishly believe that we can gain some of that power. Just because people have power doesn't mean that they have the right Idea. .

  6. Its best he KEEP his ass in MISSISSIPPI,or better yet come to Newport News, Va. an try that!

  7. Incredible and once again nothing will be done, its funny we have a black president and a black attorney general, that dose nothing here when something like this happens but let Russia or another overseas talk about taking another country over here he go running to there aid but he dose nothing about the injustice that goes on here with blacks in America, but you ready to send aid of millions and billions of dollars over there spend it here to help get rid of the injustice here

  8. You have got to be kidding me?

  9. Ronald moody he need a foot in his ass.

  10. "This story speaks to the heart of several things allowed to run amok and unchecked in American culture. Millions don't care, and many young people don't understand the basic tenets, or the history of the country they were born into. In large part it is because of the system of governments we have in place in education, child care, penal system, military, and state and federal governments that ill informs its masses. They may be the institutions, but the culture contradicts itself providing access to all knowledge free of charge. That being said I recognize the inherent social, racial, educational and religious problems in this story. It is like the devil. As I was taught you don't feed his energies you work to feed your own energies."

    What are we (Black folks) gonna do at the deeper levels of consciousness?" – Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories

  11. How stupid to excuse this fool of obvious racism because some stupid black folks are using the N word. How sad. I guess if someone smacked you and called you the N word you'd just walk away. First of all we black people didn't invent the N word whites did. So it amazes me when blacks blame blacks for saying the N word. Get angry at whites they invented it.

  12. Kim Brown, The "N" word does not apply to me because I don't think of myself as a N—– Keep in mind that it's not what someone calls you, it's what you answer to, and I NEVER use the word because it construes ignorance, (which so many people are guilty of). Now as far as someone "smacking" me, unless you are armed, I wouldn't advise it.

  13. Venicha Redd, you don't know me personally so I will "ignore" you.

  14. We should go to the Meth heads and say the same thing because they are the new "niggers". They're multiplying rapidly. As the bible says, "eye for eye, tooth for tooth, and scar for scar".

  15. I believe EVERY case this judged passed sentences should be reviewed because I am pretty sure the blacks will have harsher sentences than non minority which will be unconstitutional because of equal protections under the law & equitable due prcess

  16. Was that judge sanctioned?

  17. No injustice dealt to minorities, esp blacks is of any surprise to me in this country anymore. Just deplorable and saddening! Gotta protect ourselves and fight!!

  18. I don't know you either Teddy, but you surely sound ignorant! You correlating black people using the n* word playfully amongst each other with a white racist judge using it in the commission of an assault shows that time diluted and may need to deeply review what you read before you comment on it. It doesn't look good on you otherwise.
