Judge “Spanked & Sodomised” Inmates for Early Release


A judge charged with giving inmates reduced sentences in return for sex faces a possible life sentence.

The judge denies the charges, saying he is the victim of a racist “lynching,” and was merely “mentoring” the inmates.


The 48-year-old former Alabama judge, Herman Thomas, is accused of a wide variety of offences relating to sex with male inmates under his authority, including sodomy, sexual abuse, assault, kidnapping and extortion.

15 current and former inmates are set to testify against him; in total he faces 57 inmate sex charges.

He met the inmates, including a convicted murderer, privately during which times they claim they were abused. The judge asserts he was merely “mentoring” them.

He is supposed to have granted lenient treatment to the inmates who “consented” to have sex with him.

The charges stem from his 2007 resignation after being accused of spanking inmates with a paddle at his courthouse office.

“Once inside the room, according to the sources, the judge would ask the young men to drop their pants and prepare to be spanked with what they described as a wooden or fraternity-like paddle.”

Racial politics have been brought to the forefront of the case; the judge was picked by Democrats to be the first black federal judge in Alabama, and is claiming he is the victim of “a high-tech lynching” orchestrated by Republicans, with his defence says the charges are because his opponents “don’t like uppity black folks.”

“Did you ever think of the fact that this is the only black circuit judge we’ve ever had in Mobile County and that the right-wing Republicans have gotten rid of him?”

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People asserts he is being persecuted because of his race, and his patrons in the Democratic Party are expressing astonishment at the charges.

He has already been stripped of his license and his trial is set to begin shortly; courts released him on bail of $287,500. If convicted, he could face a life sentence.

    Well, at least he didn't abuse any 2D girls. That would be a serious crime.

    What's funny about this whole thing is that the majority of those he molested/raped were black. So how can he claim racism when his "own" will testify against him. Oh..I forgot..the Republican conspirators promised the inmates reduced sentences if they make up stories about him...

    Blaming it on the Republicans is very weak. Too bad he won't end up in a real prison. That would be a 24/7 blanket party...

    While I do agree that some black people are all too fast to play the race card, there is a reason for it. There has been a long, long history of people discriminating against them because of their race.

    While it's a great sign that this country elected a black president, the obviously racially motivated attacks from the Republican right wing also shows that racism is alive and well in this country.

    What of the Chinese? The Native Indians? The Hebrew? The Greeks? Women? Surely their years of hardship cannot be compared to that of the black man.

    Fucking tool.

    So what are you saying... that we should give black people privileges because they were discriminated against in the past? You sound just like how some of the more radical feminists.

    I get what you're saying about discrimination, but a large majority of claims of racial motivated attacks by the republicans are false. In politics, most of the black politicians happen to be Democrats, a party which of late are pretty crooked. So, it's mainly the opposition who really does anything to fight corruption. So, if a black politician supposedly does wrong and the opposition wants to investigate, it automatically becomes a race issue. And nobody is buying the race defense except members of the man's own party. Him playing the race card makes me sort of suspect that he may he may be guilty since he can't come up with any other way to defend himself.

    Well, the Democrats were DEMANDING we go to war, their never was a surplus--- that was a projected surplus that would ONLY exist if Congress never spent more and if Medicare Medicaid and Social Security went down and not up, Democrats demanded that banks lend out more then 50% of their loans to people that wouldn't be able to pay it back if the bank wanted to stay in business, and demanded that those stupid nasty repukers stay out of the way of their literal lovers owned business and not stop them from running the economy into collapse.

    Also, it was a Democrat Congress that quadrupled spending under Bush--- and have decided that money has no value under Obama. Now they have taken control of the largest banks, the largest manufacturers in the US, have declared that the Constitution is no longer the law of the land (thank you, Speaker Pelosi), and they are going to control your health care provider and what kind of healh proceedures will be allowed. Oh, let's not forget the complete parenting control (from who is allowed to maked children, how many, and the only alloweable ways to raise them) that they've included in the health care legislation.

    But, other then that...

    Wow, I've never seen so much truthiness in one comment. I guess you'd believe all that if all you ever watch is Faux news, eh?

    It was the Bush administration, led by Dick Cheney, that pushed America into the war with Iraq. Flipping it around to make it sound as though it were the opposite is absurd.

    The federal budget SURPLUS for fiscal year 1999 (under the Clinton administration) was $122.7 billion, $69.2 billion for fiscal year 1998, $122.7 billion in 1999 and $230 billion in 2000. That dropped to a budget DEFICIT of 300 billion in 2003 under the Bush administration, and even further down to $438 Billion in 2008.

    It was Bush's administration that pushed for the Patriot act, which not only gives free-wheeling powers to government officials to invade personal privacy, but has also allowed for numerous unlawful detentions of citizens over the past 8 years.

    Over the past 8 years the Republicans sent us into a war with Iraq on no grounds, ran our financial surplus into a debt of astronomical proportions, took away countless civil rights and allowed big business to run wild until our economy practically collapsed.

    What exactly have the Democrats done to top all that..?

    Getting a black judge instated in Alabama is all good and well, but at least try to get one that won't fuck inmates before sentencing?

    There's plenty of black judges in Alabama. This was just the first black judge on the Mobile circuit. There's many circuits in Alabama, and Mobile was the last of the old school white Democrat strongholds. You know, Democrats--- the political party that is good at keeping them blacks on the plantation--- according to the Clintons (both Hillary and Bill), and Sentator Byrd. Among others.

    Democrat party is the official party of the KKK. The Klan hates Republicans, because the Republicans treat everyone equally, and don't know how to keep anyone down. They blame the Republicans with freeing the slaves--- since the Republicans started off as a one-issue party--- abolitionists.

    It's all fun and games in politics. Generally, whatever one side is accusing the other, that's what THEY are doing, and how they are. Repubs are hypocrits, Dems are racists.

    TLDR- they all suck ass.

    You kinda missed the Southern realignment there. The south went from Blue States to Red States, because the more... unfriendly.. democrats went on to support the Republicans.

    This also in part due to desegregation and LBJ forcing it through, even though they were having hissy fits about it.

    Nope. The Pro-Life and the strong Christians went to the Repubs. The racists stayed in the Democrats--- because the Reps don't hold them back. They treat them the exact same way they treat everyone--- shitty.

    Democrats support quotas. KKK (and other pro-white racist groups) support quotas. Quotas work to LIMIT minorities, not promote them. it also encourages quota bingo (A female, blind, black pregnant vet ? HIRE HER RIGHT NOW! That means we can hire 40 more white, qualified people!) Repubs support getting rid of them.

    Democrats support dividing everyone by race and sex and orientation and history. KKK supports that. Otherwise, people wouldn't be "racially and historically conscious" and white people would think that everyone were equal, rather then learning how everyone whites have been superior throughout history and would still be if people hadn't become pansies.

    Democrats are pro-abortion. Klan is pro-abortion. The reason is that minorities, PARTICULARLY BLACKS, are much more likely to abort their children then "American Whites". Klan is one of the supporters of Planned Parenthood. Anytime PP is in trouble, the Klan is willing to go out and protest for them. Repubs? Due to them becoming the "pro-life" party (due to our 2 party system where the other party is "presumed" against anything its opposite is for) they are against abortion on demand, at least late term abortions, and hence, not Klan friendly or Klan favored.

    All racial power groups, black, white, yellow, and red, align with the Democrats--- because only they support racial politics. In fact, Democratic lobbying and political awareness groups, give money to the various "non-profit" community outreach projects of the racial power groups--- including the Klan.

    Republicans have tried many times to block that, but the Democrats always scream to the media about how the Repubs are trying to "keep the minorities down, those racits pigs!" Democrats don't want to stop the close relationship they have with those groups--- because they can get their members out to vote more reliably then the "average voter". That is power, and why they get the money back.

    Heck, the Klan is part of ACORN! Supporting poor white people in New York and Massachussettes and Vermont, as well as in many other "non-South" states.

    The Klan isn't welcome in most parts of the South. But it's welcomed just fine in the Northeast and the West Coast.
