IF YOU ARE A MAN OR WOMAN OF COLOR THEN JUDGE CYNTHIA J. BECKER OF THE DEKALB COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT, WILL NOT HAVE ANY MERCY ON YOU FOR COMMITTING A CRIME. WHETHER ITS YOUR FIRST OFFENSE OR NOT. SHES AN UNFAIR JUDGE. SHE DOESNT LISTEN TO ANYONE'S DEFENSE AND CAN CARE LESS IF YOU'RE GUILTY OR NOT. SHE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THE FUTURE OF OUR YOUNG BLACK MEN. SHE'S EVEN HARDER ON HISPANICS.
Judge Becker is very unfair. Everyone should review the Lona Scott case. Lona Scott is a white woman who shot and killed her husband why he was completely naked. She was acquitted by Becker. When does anyone get acquitted by killing an UNARMED person that was COMPLETELY NAKED. Only a white woman. Another white man killed his dog and received one year probation by Judge Becker. Now how much time did Michael Vick receive? In another case an older white man was charged with two counts of felony assault. She turned those two counts of assault into misdemeanors. Told him to pay for his mom broken window shield and stay away from the victims. And he was free to go. I watched a case where this black man was charged with assault after he stabbed a man for assauting him. He was hit in the back of the head, received six stitches and needed face recontruction. So after that he stabbed the man and received four years in prison for self defense. In 2012, color still matters. In another case a black woman caught her boyfriend cheating on her and scratched his truck. She received five years probation. If I caught my my boyfriend and another woman together I would be mad too. But remind you, she got five years probation but the white man who killed his dog only received one year of probation.
My brother received life plus five for killing a man who was molesting my niece for eight years. This is his first time offense. I don't condone murder but I have seen to many cases where white men and women kill their childs rapist and receive five years or less or get to go home. He was charged with felony murder, malice murder, possession of a firearm, and one other charge. She didn't allow the jury to know that my brother committed murder because my niece was molested for eight years. It traumatized my niece where I think shes kind of insane now. It was my sister's boyfriend who did it. Judge Becker told the jury that sometimes people kill for no reason, when in fact he killed because of my niece being molested. She also didn't give the jury a chance to charge him with manslaughter. I'm not asking for my brother to just walk away a free man but I do think life plus five is a lot when he has never been in legal trouble before. The GA Supreme court has reversed my brother's case but the DA is trying to charge him with malice murder again instead of manslaughter. If anyone wants to try to work together and fight against Becker then please email me at: Denise242010@yahoo.com

Just ridiculous. The supposed Justice I've witnessed specifically in Dekalb County makes me regret earning my Degree in Criminal Justice. It almost shames me to be affiliated but Im going to utilize my skills and education to work against the corrupt justice system and be able to help people like your brother, my fiance, and a friend. We will come together and make a difference. There are too many people being wronged by justice and soon with efforts of you, myself, and others who feel as we do.... A CHANGE WILL COME

I know how you feel. I earned my degree in paralegal studies six months ago. At the end of the day, we still have to be humble and want to help people. I can't give legal advice but I do want to help people out because what she did to my brother was out of line. I believe in justice but damn I don't believe in ruining lives.
Can you email me at Denise242010@yahoo.com
I really want to get her the attention she needs like a news camera in her courtroom but I need more help.
Thanks!!!

Steven Scott is my brother. Growing up we always knew and was taught right from wrong. A lot of ppl are on the outside looking in at a situation. I have just graduated and earned my Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies. I have learned a lot of dirty things that the DA does to families. For example: My family. I will give you alittle history on what my family has been through with Dan Smith. I'm not condemning what my brother has done but maybe I can enlighten you on the situation. Dan Smith was his his 30s when he met my then 16 or 17 year old sister. She found out he was married with kids and still decided to date him. He was on drugs and he constantly stole from my parents and family. I remember when we were kids. He offered to go to popeyes chicken because me and my brother was hungry. Well he took my parents $20.00 and we remained hungry. He also stole my brother's bike. When my brother asked for it when we saw it at his mom's house in the backyard, my sister took up for him. Then he stole my sister's trunk and sold it to a drug dealer. My sister had the drug dealer locked up but she dropped the charges on Dan Smith. SO UNFAIR. My brother decided to allow my two sisters to drive his mustang until she got another car. Sometimes he would walk an hour to get home from work. My brother has a great heart. He just snapped. Enough was enough! I was there and witnessed it. When he stole her car, she lived off bus line. She just had a son by him. Well he didnt care that her and their two kids needed that car. YES EMERGENCIES DOES HAPPEN. bUT THOSE DRUGS WERE MORE IMPORTANT. He never supported his kids and flirted with me in the past. Oh and three days after his death, my sister found out he was married for three months to a woman from ecuador. How crazy can it get. To this day my sister still attends his burial site all the time. Shes still naive. It has been four years and she dont want to move on. Maybe low self esteem. WHO KNOWS. I never disrespected him because that wasnt my job to tell my sister to leave but he has done alot to my family.

He also stole rom his own blood. His mom wouldn't even allow Dan Smith to sleep on her front porch when he begged her. His mom his no better. She has left my nephew in her car with the windows rolled up while she go get something to eat. She has taking him to South Carolina without my sister's permission and left him with strangers. He cried until she returned. She leaves him in the bathtub without supervision. I WISH MY SISTER WOULD WAKE UP ANYDAY NOW. She testified against her own brother. Maybe she needs to be taught right from wrong at the age of 34. WHO KNOWS. Men come b4 kids these days. BLK PPL LETS GET IT TOGETHER AND FIGHT FOR WHATS RIGHT. PROTECT UR KIDS. SHE DONT EVEN BELIEVE MY NIECE WAS MOLESTED. WELL I DO. HE TREATED MY NIECE HORRIBLE. HE WOULDNT FEED HER OR ANYTHING AFTER HE COOKED. HE NEVER PAID BILLS OR TAKE CARE OF HIS TWO KIDS BY MY SISTER. HE HAS MANY OTHER KIDS TOO. I THINK BY TWO OR THREE OTHER WOMEN. I love my sister but I wished she had protected my niece. My brother just was trying to help my niece. And it just got out of control. My other niece wont even go around his Dan's mom because she constantly puts her down. Come a 60 yr old against a 15 yr old. My sister was with him for 14 yrs. During that time he was married twice.

My brother did have his gun so if Dan Smith did something he could protect himself. My brother lost it after he called my niece a B. Everyone in life aren't great mothers. But I don't want my sister in jail. My brother has never even been in legal trouble that day. I don't he deserved life. Yes, he deserves to be punished but life is overboard. I have been around this guy.

And some people believe that he should have received his sentence but the funny thing about this is a Dekalb County Judge delivered my brother's high school diploma to my parents home personally. Because that one good Judge seen that my brother was a great kid.

I have always felt the judicial system is unfair especially when it is a person of color. My son was one of her first cases she had during the same time she was handling the Sydney Dorsey. Derwyn Brown case. My son's case was considered armed robbery at a dollar store. He received from her 15 years to serve and five years probation. This too was a first offender case and as a parent I am still devastated by this. We have tried to get this turned over to no avail. He has served almost 14 years and will be released in 2016 to be on parole for 5 years. This is so unfair . What can we do but just take this crap. People of color don't have a fair chance at all.

It's ironic that Judge Cynthia Becker was taken down by the Prosecution for letting
African American Defendants Pope, and Reid off the hook after a jury convicted them
in the corruption and fraud trial against them.

By the way, Judge Becker didn't acquit Lona Scott in the 2010 self defense trial. A jury of mixed ethnic backgrounds did, so the OP's statement is misinformed. Judge Becker had a very pro prosecution reputation while she was on the bench, which wasn't a secret, or something she trtied to hide.
