There’s an Assistant US Attorney in Beaumont, Texas – yes, that is East Texas – who has taken to Facebook to show his ability to seek justice. Okay, not justice exactly. More like to make a total jerk of himself.


Speaking about the Trayvon Martin trial, Assistant US Attorney John Craft tried to make Facebook friends with this —

Craft wrote: “How are you fixed for Skittles and Arizona watermelon fruitcocktail (and maybe a bottle of Robitussin, too) in your neighborhood? I am fresh out of “purple drank.” So, I may come by for a visit. In a rainstorm. In the middle of the night. In a hoodie. Don’t get upset or anything if you see me looking in your window … kay?”

Nope, no racial prejudice here.

And there’s this –

In another comment, Craft wrote that “low information voters carried the day for the Dalibama in the last election” and posted an image of a graphic that said: “Obama: Why Stupid People Shouldn’t Vote.”

Babe, Eric Holder is your boss. Do you know who selected Eric Holder? Honey, are you living proof that maybe stoopid people did elect somebody who would hire you?

His boss says there is not a social media policy but that he found Craft’s comments to be “reprehensible.” However, he wouldn’t say if Craft would be disciplined.

Talk is so cheap.
