Jordan and Tommy Gray’s 3-year-old daughter was watching SpongeBob Squarepants when two armed males broke into their home near Buechel on March 21, 2013, and robbed them at gunpoint. Two years later, when one of the offenders was about to be sentenced, Jordan wrote in a victim influence statement that her daughter was nevertheless “in constant fear of black men.” Both robbers have been African-American.
“Anytime we are operating errands, if we come across a black male, she holds me tight and begs me to leave,” the mother stated. “It has impacted her friendships at college and our relationships with African-American buddies.”
Tommy Gray also wrote that because the crime, his daughter had been terrified of black males and that probation was not sufficient punishment for Gregory Wallace, 27, who had pleaded guilty to armed robbery.
“If holding a tiny girl at gunpoint gets you probation, then our system is flawed,” Gray mentioned.
But when Wallace was brought up for sentencing Feb. 4 in Jefferson Circuit Court, it was the parents, not Wallace, who suffered Judge Olu Stevens’ wrath.
“I am offended. … I am deeply offended that they would be victimized by an individual and express some sort of worry of all black men,” he said.
“This little girl definitely has been victimized, and she can not help the way she feels,” he stated. “My exception is much more with her parents and their accepting that kind of mentality and fostering these sort of stereotypes.”
The crime occurred in Louisville, KY, in 2013. The judge’s anti-white racism was reported April 10, 2015.
