Earlier this week, I made the following suggestion regarding what the prosecutors in the Batts case should do following the funeral for his daughter that he killed:
An exit note for prosecutors: Drug test Batts tomorrow and find him in violation of the terms of his bond.
$50k down the toilet.
HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – A father accused of shooting and killing his 11-year-old daughter has failed a drug test after bonding out of jail.
The District Attorney confirmed Friday Timothy Batts failed a drug test that he took on Monday. Batts tested positive for benzoylecgonie, the compound tested for to discover cocaine use.
There were numerous flower arrangements at the funeral talking about how Angel Timea was “flyin’ high”. Looks like she wasn’t the only one.
After the judge cut Batts’ $1 million bond in half to $500,000, he also instated multiple stipulations for when Batts bonded out. One of those was that Batts would be on supervised bond and would have to pass a drug test.
The judge had also said Batts could not pick up any new charges or he would be sent back to jail.
While this is encouraging and smart that the prosecutors sought the test, the same spineless Judge James Hunter that cut his bail in the first place is unlikely to have grown vertebrae in the week since he made himself a eunuch in front of racist mob waving a change.org petition.
Should the judge not extend another serving of black privilege to Mr. Batts, that $50,000 his bigoted, delusional supporters raised is burnt up like so much freebase.
I’ll make another prediction while I’m here. The lunatics at Mt. Zion Baptist and Batts’ pastors will demand that he be given yet another chance because how could he not be expected to get high before going to his daughter’s funeral and spending $50k to get out of jail. They are so personally invested at this point that he could kill all of his kids and they’d still be holding poetry slams and twerkfests at Limelight in his honor.
If he was already Cashville’s Greatest Dad after killing one kid, killing all of them should put him in the hall of fame.
There is nothing Christian about these people. Just racists hiding behind a bible and fleecing the desperate for their ducats.
He’s the untouchable St. Timothy after all. Executing God’s will one little girl at a time.
Hey Revvum Uncle Elder Starnes, is this “a tragedy or a transition” back to the penal colony? Scumbag.
Exit Thoughts: Have the police entertained the notion that Batts may have been on drugs at the time of the shooting? One simply does not start using cocaine out of nowhere much less have access like this at the ready.
What is certain is that all of his supporters either didn’t know about his drug use or did know and don’t care. For all the talk about how he started going to church and made a U-turn in his life, it seems it was more of a roundabout. And the only leaf he turned over was made out of cocoa.
All of this comes full circle on the motive of the shooting. Was it a paranoia induced accident or was there something that he didn’t want his daughter talking about.
And who was he on the phone talking to prior to the shooting?
The truth will come out. Unfortunately, Batts’ church folk will try to hinder the truth coming out as much as possible because they’ll look like fools, corrupt, or worse.
And one more parting shot for our local media. This is an international level story now. From my observations, only the Tennessean sent a reporter to cover the funeral. I’ve seen more coverage in the UK than at WKRN, WSMV, or the Nashville Scene.
You all are really giving Batts, his family, and his churches the kid gloves treatment here. Why? Is it the same reason why the judge cut his bail in half? Because that’s my guess. You don’t want to ask anyone any tough questions or make them answer anything about the facts that have refuted his flimsy alibi because he’s black and you’re scared.
