Texas Judge Suggests Lynching Black Suspect ” Time For Tree & Rope”

A Central Texas judge has apologized for his controversial social media commentary on the arrest of Otis Tyrone McKane, who allegedly killed SAPD Det. Benjamin Marconi, calling his suggestion of a lynching “harsh” in a statement to Wednesday.

Burnet County Judge James Oakley, the county’s top elected official, shared SAPD’s Facebook post announcing the arrest of McKane, then added a comment from his personal profile to the thread saying, “Time for a tree and a rope,” according to the Austin American-Statesman, which captured a screenshot of the now-deleted post.
