The U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas Malcolm Bales is doing “damage control” because of a personal Facebook post written by John Craft, an attorney in the criminal division. Bales will investigate Craft’s statements. As of now, Craft still has a job and a good reputation, previously prosecuting a high profile case of the bank robber John Steve Stark (the "Handsome Bandit"). Craft also prosecuted the Liberty County sheriff's captain who illegally bought and sold police guns and ammunition as well as a huge cocaine distribution ring responsible for money laundering and drug-trafficking in the region.
Craft posted comments in response to a status update backing Stand Your Ground laws, making references to Trayvon Martin, the black 17-year-old killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who was acquitted.
"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?"
Awesome post as far as I am concerned.
