Judge Schrock sentences children to life

About 4 years ago, Berrien County Judge Sterling Schrock announced that a white boy between 16 and 17 years old had murdered his step father by beating him to death.  The boy told several people his intention beforehand.  He had been troubled a troubled child and teenager.  Schrock said prison would not do the boy any good and sentenced him to 5 years probation.  

On the very same day, 20 minutes later, a black boy - the same age - was in court.  He had hit a white man on the head one time with a pipe and killed him.  The judge state that he would send him to prison for the rest of his life without possibility of parole, plus he gave him an additional 10 years just in case “somehow you get a parole on your life sentence, you are never going to get out ever again.”

Then, a young boy who attempted to stop the assault received 15 years in prison and the judge’s language was criminal. It gets even worse: a very young girl who was seen talking to the young boy was given 10 years in prison. This is what people in Berrien County, Michigan call justice for black people.  Judge Sterling Schrock should be disbarred.

The question was asked of Judge Schrock on Dec. 15, 2014 and again on Feb. 27, 2015, what is the evidence against Rev. Pinkney?  The judge could not say.  The prosecutor produced no evidence, only an all-white lynch mob jury.

Sterling Schrock’s true character has been misinterpreted, ignored, and even forgotten.  We the people must stand up to racism.  This judge has failed his oath.  He must be removed! We the people must say NO MORE!
