Crazy in Crocket 2

Houston County’s Precinct 1 justice of the peace Clyde Black has issued peace bond warrants for President Joe Biden and Dr Fauci to appear in his court in Crockett Texas…  Then- the JP posted numerous racial and derogatory comments that 30 years ago would have gotten him an in person visit from the Secret Service.

Instead a complaint was sent to the Texas Judicial Commission who instead of removing the nutcase JP they ordered him to complete some training.  On Jack Blacks personal Facebook page he claims to be a former Marine who served 3 tours in Vietnam and acted as an advisor to the South Vietnamese Army.  He then lists his career with Houston Police Department Intelligence.  How about using some intelligence?
