FILE — Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen (center) speaks on Oct. 5 during a news conference with attorneys Austin Porter Jr. (left) and Mike Laux announcing the filing of a federal First Amendment lawsuit against Arkansas Supreme Court justices for disciplining Griffen and barring him from hearing death-penalty cases.



A circuit judge has objected to comments from a court security instructor who reportedly referred to the Black Lives Matter movement as a hate group during a training session in Hot Springs last week.

BLM is a hate group. Anytime one calls for the killing of policemen I think they qualify for the title.

BLM may or may not be a hate group. they are definitely a racist group. that was proven when members lost their minds over people saying 'all lives matter.' also, what would happen if a WLM group was formed ?

“No authorized spokesperson for BLM has done so, and BLM has explicitly condemned hateful comments by others that have suggested or encouraged that anyone engage in violence against or toward law enforcement officers,” Griffen wrote in the letter.
Key word here being "authorized". If anyone would know about racism it's Griffen.

They're not a hate group. They're a burn and loot flash mob.

Cool it, Judge. Not everyone you disagree with is a "hate group".

IMHO, It's time for the judge to retire. He obviously needs more time to pursue his calling in life - to find and condemn racism in all aspects of our lives.

Where do you folks get your BLM info from -- Breitbart? InfoWars? Judge Griffen is right; you're all wrong.
