Bastrop is standing by the same attitude it had a hundred years ago. Remember Toby Cook . The fact that the previous judge's daughter resided over the appeal process is an example of what the judicial system thinks of the minorities in that county. The system has laughed in the face of every Black citizen in Bastrop County. (Could any of us go against our father.) If the witnesses had problems with their evidence than how could the judge not have a problem with her decision. I wish I could help. Someone needs to get the people of Bastrop County to unite and fight this JIM CROW system. Get that old money out of the court house and put honest new Americans in. If the Justice Office did an audit and evaluated 20% of the cases in Bastrop they would fine that minorities are being discrimanted against daily and court ruling are base of personal prejudices not the law. That I will stand on. People are either to ignorant or to afraid to stand up against those who control the courts. This I know for a fact.
