Even in the wilds of deepest darkest Jo-ja, racist woman-beaters and child terrorizers sometimes have to answer for their loathsome, savage actions:
A man accused of screaming racial slurs while beating an Army reservist in front of her daughter outside a restaurant in Morrow, Georgia, was jailed and held without bond Wednesday after being indicted on felony charges.
Troy Dale West Jr., of Poulan, Georgia, is facing one count of aggravated assault, two counts of battery, two counts of disorderly conduct, false imprisonment and cruelty to children for allegedly beating Tashawnea Hill outside a Cracker Barrel restaurant on September 9, according to a Clayton County Court online docket.
West had been arrested on misdemeanor charges following the incident, but Clayton County District Attorney Tracy Graham Lawson took the the case to a grand jury asking for more serious charges. (emphasis mine)
That’s more like it: none of this “misdemeanour charges and bonded back on the street in hours” horseshit — as of this morning, West’s mail is being redirected to the county jug. There he’ll await trial, after which he’ll hopefully move into more permanent lodgings. Bye-bye, dickhead!
