It’s not often that I am completely confounded when watching a court case unfold but, I must admit, the child murder of Timea Batts has me shaking my head with each passing day.
This is a supplement to the Dindu Nuffin post below. Timothy Batts, a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, shot and killed his 11 year old daughter moments after she walked into the front door of her home following her first day of school.
A controversy began when Batts lied to police about the circumstance of the murder and, while his daughter was dying, absconded to Nashville to hide the murder weapon which has since been recovered. He claimed he was startled out of sleep by what he thought was an intruder. However, home video taken from a security camera inside of the home showed him wide awake, talking on the phone, and walking around the house with the gun five minutes before the shooting.
Bail was set at $1,000,0000 for reckless homicide and a plethora of side charges given his prior history.
A mob of family members, acquaintances, and assorted bigots (or as they are usually referred to in a courtroom setting as “accomplices”) descended on a spineless and cowardly Sumner County judge who reduced the bail by half. The “victory” for the bigoted mob prompted an embarrassing courtrroom outburst like it was a sporting event – completely unmoored by the fact that an 11 year old black girl who should have been finishing her first week of school was having formaldehyde pumped through her body and needing to pick out a nice dress for her funeral.
It took less than a day for Batts’ accomplices, excuse making cultists from Long Hollow Baptist Church, and various internet racists to crowdsource the $50,000 and post bond.
What happened upon Batts’ release shocked me for the second time in a week. So high are the bigots in Batts’ circle of friends and acquaintances on the notion that they have somehow stuck it to Whitey, that they thought it was a good idea to livestream his release from jail on Facebook.
In the link above, a jubilant Batts can be seen laughing and, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say, clowning around with his supporters.
A flyer was also being circulated for a fundraiser at the hoodrat nightclub Limelight with a picture of stoic Batts and ghostly photoshopped Timea emblazoned with the title “Ca$hville’s Greatest Dad Appreciation” for this coming Thursday night (Aug. 18th).
You cannot make this shit up. The Runners Up to the Ca$hville’s Greatest Dad contest are literally everyone else who didn’t murder their kids last week.
Call me old fashioned. If I had just killed my daughter, I’d probably be borderline suicidal. I would have been on suicide watch in jail. If under threat of life in prison or the death penalty, at the very least I would be somber and likely in tears in the courtroom or in front if cameras.
Batts is cold-blooded and remorseless by all observations.
The Timea Batts funeral is today. Hopefully, the morticians and undertakers will specify that there is to be no video of the ceremonial pouring of Hennessy over her corpse or blowing of blunt smoke in her face as is often associated with tribal custom. Don’t judge.
That’s the jury’s job.
An exit note for prosecutors: Drug test Batts tomorrow and find him in violation of the terms of his bond.
$50k down the toilet.
In closing, Long Hollow Baptist Church is a den of vipers and the congregation fills the offering plates with tithings to Satan.
Naturally, the dipshits at the Nashville Scene think this is about lack of gun control and are taking a stance that this entire incident was an accident on blind faith alone without any investigation or consideration of the numerous and damning holes in Batts’ alibi or behavior immediately afterwards. Or, that he should have still been in jail following a 2012 attempted murder. Because Journalism ™.
