A Central Texas judge has been formally reprimanded for a social media post that said a ‘tree and a rope’ were needed for a man accused of fatally shooting a San Antonio police detective.

James Oakley was given the reprimand by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct, according to The Austin American-Statesman.

Oakley, Burnet County’s top administrator, must complete a 30-hour training program for new judges and four hours of racial sensitivity training with a mentor.

Oakley has said his comment was intended to reflect his personal feelings that the killing ‘should qualify for the death penalty.’

He said it had nothing to do with race. The suspect in last year’s shooting, Otis Tyrone McKane, is black; Oakley is white.

    FIRE, RECALL OR IMPEACH HIM. How can mankind exact justice if people in authority such as this judge is not severely sanctioned. You can retrain or re-educate, but we all know what’s in his heart. FIRE HIM!
