Sorry Effingham county I decided as
God (lite) that true "racism" was found
in a drunken bar fight in Altamont Il.
I hope the community will stand with me as I
make a mockery of our county.

Ya let's all see them rot...... Your nuts! The only people that will suffer is there poor children and families..... If it happened like the edn claimed I could see that, but I truly believe it did not.... Like you have never been drunk and made a bad choice (drunk driving, fighting, sleeping with a random person, bulling) if you say no I call your damn bluff!

Being drunk is no excuse! Anyone who does that to a human being (no matter the color of their skin) deserves to rot and believe me they will....in hell!!

@blah you can try to justify and make excuses any way you want but 3 guys assulting a man in public that just walks into a place, just because of the color of his skin is WRONG!! I think role reversal in a penitinuary is whats needed for these 3 pieces of human debris.Because it wont take a GENIUS to figure out if these three had a hand in this.
