Newell Normand, sheriff of Jefferson Parish in Louisiana (and other than Bull Connor, how much more appropriate could a name for a southern white sheriff be?) has a great justification for his extremely poor choices made around the murder of former Jets running back Joe McKnight by a white man. First, he didn’t he arrest the guy. Now the guy has been charged with manslaughter, probably meaning he won’t serve much time, if any at all. And then there’s his actions at press conferences:

The sheriff said that officials had 10 hours of non-custodial interviews and two hours of custodial interviews with Gasser, who didn’t ask for an attorney. Normand added that officials had 160 interviews related to the case since Thursday, and criticized those who were critical of law enforcement.

Normand took a significant portion of his time to a condemn some of the national reaction to the story. For the second time, he said that a witness lied when they claimed that McKnight was apologizing as Gasser shot him, after which Gasser stood over his body as he said, “I told you don’t fuck with me,” before shooting again. “Shame on that individual,” Normand said.

To add detail to his argument, Normand read an anonymous internet comment out loud directed at one of his colleagues, that included the insults “you punk-ass Uncle Tom coon” and “rat-ass faggot punk.” When asked by a reporter why he read those comments, and if he understood why a case with a white man shooting a young black man would be so nationally scrutinized, Normand cited black-on-black crime statistics for the parish. “If you want to look at the statistical data, your fear is somewhere else,” Normand said.

Black on black crime! The favorite dodge of racists everywhere justifying white murders of black people. The only lesson we can take is that black lives don’t matter so go ahead white people, kill ’em all! They will probably kill each other anyway! For that matter, let’s suppress their voting rights and destroy the social safety net and anything else that might conceivably help a black person live a dignified life in this nation.
