A North Carolina court of appeals judge was summoned by a criminal court Friday after being accused of nearly hitting Black Lives Matter protesters at a demonstration in downtown Fayetteville on May 7.

Judge John M. Tyson of Cumberland County has been summoned to appear in a courtroom in his own county next month where he will need to answer to a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, the Fayetteville Observer reported.

Tyson is one of the most high-profile people accused of being aggressive toward protests demanding racial justice and police reform in the wake of worldwide demonstrations after the killing of George Floyd last year.

The summons came after local activist Myah Warren, 23, told a Cumberland County magistrate judge Friday that Tyson was the one who drove the vehicle that nearly hit her and other Fayetteville Activist Movement rally goers who were protesting fatal police shootings, according to the newspaper.

3. Don't rush to judgment here.

Maybe he was texting a colleague about the importance of the rights guaranteed to all Americans by the constitution of the United States he has sworn an oath to uphold. Maybe, in a moment of patriotic ecstasy, he was texting how special, how exceptional America is that she grants to all citizens the right to protest actions taken by their government -- and just got tragically distracted.

Surely no sitting judge would so defame that document and his position of authority by threatening people exercising the rights guaranteed them by the first amendment.

That, or the crazy bastard needs to be defrocked, dragged from court on a rail, tarred, feathered, driven around town and to its outskirts there to be dumped like the human refuse he is on the side of the road.

6. The United States was founded on violence.

Colonialism is just a pretty word for one group of people taking what belongs to another, often through violence, and of course we are not alone in those endeavors. It has been the way of the world and still goes on today. What is sad is that we have not evolved away from the violence of our early founding and expansion into all the territories not forming these 50 states, plus a few territories that we just hang onto without giving its residents full rights.

As a young person, my first experience with violence was the racial violence of the 1960s. How is it that in more than five succeeding decades we have not progressed to the point where racial animosity is a thing of the past! Not only is it not in the past where it belongs, it is expanding and showing the world that the era of ugly Americans never endedit just waited in our cells for a bit and then metastasized into full-blown cancer. The catalyst has been the Republican Party leaders and Donald Trump. They are the new KKK, and they need to be branded as such. The judge here just traded white robes for black ones.

8. Hopefully he will be voted out next election

I have zero faith in the courts that he will be found guilty of anything. But the voters need to vote him out next election. Hes not a presidential pick thankfully. No lifetime on the bench for him as he has to face voters.

9. It's OK in Florida though.

I guess NC is behind the curve in making
running over protesters legal.

Gawd I hate this world sometimes.
