In Rural Tarrant County, a Man is Beaten to Death By Alleged White Supremacists

On the night of July 7, two women huddled in the back bedroom of the mobile home at 6108 Big Wood Court in rural Tarrant County. From another room, they could hear the cries of 34-year-old Earnest Ray Lackey, as three men hog-tied and beat him for hours until, at some point, the screams stopped and Lackey's lifeless body was taken from the house.

In subsequent interviews with the Tarrant County Sheriff's Department first reported by CBS 11 the women gave a motive for the killing: Lackey falsely claimed membership in the Aryan Brotherhood. The other men, all of whom had recently served time in prison and actually were members of the white supremacist group, sought to teach him a lesson.

Lackey's body wasn't found until August 2, when two women were walking through a vacant field near Eagle Mountain Lake and saw a human form, crudely wrapped. The Tarrant County medical examiner's office identified the badly decomposed body as Lackey's last week, though it has not officially determined the cause of death.

The men believed to have killed him -- Staten "Monster" Corbett Jr., Jimmy "Jimbo" Riddle and Ronnie Freeman Jr. -- were arrested separately in the weeks following the alleged beating on unrelated charges. Since then, they have been kept housed separately in the Tarrant County Jail as investigators build their case. Each has been charged with murder, with bail set at $100,000.

Tarrant County Sheriff's Department spokesman Terry Grisham was quick to distance his department from the claim that the alleged murder was tied to the membership of Corbett, Riddle, and Freeman in the Aryan brotherhood. It was a witness, and not law enforcement, who made that claim.

"We've developed information to the point that we were able to write search warrants and then arrest warrants to charge three individuals with the death of a fourth man." The Aryan Brotherhood connection provides a possible motive but "really isn't relevant to the case."

When asked whether the Aryan Brotherhood had a strong presence in Tarrant County, he was again careful. Grisham said he knew of no crimes that the group had taken credit for.

"The Aryan Brotherhood doesn't leave calling cards if they're involved with a crime."

Interesting that with the daily black-on-black violence that occurs in DFW, you choose to write about this crap...

@Dallas_Observer It doesn't take a stretch of the imagination to believe that kind of element exists in substantial numbers there

Let me see....

We have scumbags who killed someone claiming to be a scumbag and then improperly disposing of the body. If they had only managed to off themselves in the process, this would have been a perfect story.

BTW, I think they should also be charged with littering.

If you read the local crime news you would also know that several black people were killed by several other black people just this week alone.

I love it when I post something, and it doesn't show up-good job observer!  Hey, let's make some MORE changes that don't work. 

 

 

BTW, that's not the faces of the Repub party, but the faces of the lawless south.

No, those are meth faces of the deep south; scarier than a Balkans mob!  Two things I fear in this world:

 

-renegade, out of touch southerner-with NOTHING to lose.

-a fat, deep south cop.

 Interesting that you overlook the white-on-white violence that occurs everyday in the US, but you resort to confirmation bias to maintain your bigotry.

 

Just keep saying to yourself: I keep seeing bad black people...

 @GuitarPlayer I'm sure you realize that Bill Maher is a humorist, the P.J. O'Rourke of the left.  Neither Bill nor PJ are in any way to be taken too seriously.  I'm guessing your post was a bit 'tongue in cheek'?

The only 'master' that WhiteGuiltObserver knows is how to masterbate and his mother probably had to teach him in the 11th grade. He is just angry at the world because he is less 'equipped' than a Chinese schoolgirl.

Name one Democrat that isn't racist. What with their condescending paternalism.

Are you really so stupid as to believe that only Republicans/whites can be racist?  If so, you are officially the most ignorant person to ever post on this board.

 @GuitarPlayer Robert Byrd was an  "Exalted Cyclops" in the KKK.

 

I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side ... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.—Robert C. Byrd

 @GuitarPlayer Ok, for starters:  Harry Reid, who had to call every civil rights group and african american leader to apologize for his comments about then-candidate Obama in the 2008 campaign.

 

Or, how about these:

 

""In 2007, Biden called Obama "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.""

 

"You cannot go to a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian Accent." -Senator Joe Biden

 

(On Clarence Thomas) "A handkerchief-head, chicken-and-biscuit-eating Uncle Tom." -- Spike Lee

 

"I'll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years."

-- Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One according Ronald Kessler's Book, "Inside The White House"

 

"You f*cking Jew b@stard." -- Hillary Clinton to political operative Paul Fray. This was revealed in "State of a Union: Inside the Complex Marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton" and has been verified by Paul Fray and three witnesses.

 

'Hymies.' 'Hymietown.' -- Jesse Jackson's description of New York City while on the 1984 presidential campaign trail.

 

 

Or, this one:

 

""_ Former President Bill Clinton's efforts to persuade Sen. Edward M. Kennedy to endorse his wife's presidential bid fell flat when Clinton told the Democratic lawmaker that just a few years ago, Obama would have been serving the pair coffee.""

 

Need anymore?  Here's a quote I particularly like as it dispenses with the bull shit of saying one party or one race has the moral high ground with regard to racism:

 

* "No race has a monopoly on vice or virtue, and the worth of an individual is not related to the color of his skin."  -- Whitney Young
