The black community is up in arms following a judge’s decision to sentence 18-year-old Tony Farmer, a high school basketball star in Ohio, to prison for three years for physically abusing his 18-year-old ex-girlfriend, Andrea Lane, in her apartment complex. Judge Pamela Barker attributes Farmer’s violent rage caught on camera and his threats to Lane following the court’s ‘no contact’ order to her reason for sending him to prison for three years.
While some people in the black community are praising the judge’s decision and saying she “left him off easy” with the three-year-sentence, other people in the black community are wishing the young man would’ve received some form of punishment that will better him (e.g. counseling, community service, strict probation, and a shorter prison sentence).
