Most Bizarre Quote of the Week – July 23, 2022

“You’re a Black man in America.  You know you don’t want to be nowhere where cops are.  You know you don’t want to be nowhere where cops are cause I know I don’t, and I’m a middle-aged, middle-class Black woman.  I don’t want to be around where the cops are because I don’t know if I’m going to walk away alive or not.”

Judge Erika Ballou of Nevada’s 8th Judicial District Court, advising a Black defendant to stay away from law enforcement

A local police union and Nevada Republicans are now calling for Ballou to apologize and resign.  In response to the outcry, she declared, “What the record shows, is that I communicate with those who appear before me in a manner that is straightforward and understandable.”
