KKK Members Fail To Protest In Front Of Georgia courthouse ! Find Out Why

BHR Hollywood Reports...........Following the sentencing of a Georgia couple who used Confederate flags and racial slurs to terrorize a Black child’s birthday party, the Ku Klux Klan planned a protest rally to be held outside the Douglas County Courthouse. However, the rally, which was planned for Sunday afternoon, resulted in a no-show from active members of the KKK.

Torres And Norton In Court 
Norton and Torres, who have three children, were part of a larger group in July 2015 called Respect the Flag. Their convoy of trucks, flying the Confederate battle flag, pulled up to a birthday party for an 8-year-old black child, where they threatened the family and yelled racial slurs. At one point, Torres pulled out a shotgun and pointed it at the family.

This past week, Norton was sentenced on one count of violating Georgia's street gang act and one count of making terroristic threats.

 Torres was sentenced on three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count of terroristic
threats and one count of violating the street gang act.

Despite the group not showing up for the planned protest, one man made it clear he was not happy over the sentences handed down by the judge.

Kenny Whitman said what happened to Norton and Torres was "a tragedy."

"I'm just a Confederate. I just feel bad these people got in trouble," Whitman told Jaquez. "They should be able to say the ‘n word’ and hold the flag without it being a crime."

That sent the crowd into a frenzy.

"Obviously she did something and that is not her. She apologized to the woman," another protester said.

While Whitman and a few others agree the two deserved some time in prison, he said, the extent of the sentencing was too much.

"That's such a steep sentence," Whitman said.

Jaquez said the protest never caused a public safety issue. Police kept crowds under control and no arrests were made.
