A Louisiana judge who was caught on video using racial slurs to describe a man who had reportedly attempted to break into her home and car two weeks ago has resigned after the video and story went viral. Earlier this month, Lafayette City Court Judge Michelle Odinet was recorded reacting to surveillance video in which a Black man had reportedly been arrested while burglarizing her property.
She had to resign. There’s no way she could be trusted to serve on the bench once these racial slurs got out. Then too, they’ll probably have to backlog and investigate all her cases from the past in light of her racist behavior to see of there was misconduct involved when it comes to race.
