Lubbockites react to controversial courthouse postings

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The East and Northeast Lubbock Neighborhood Coalition met Friday to speak out against controversial postings by Judge Tom Head on a bulletin board in the Lubbock County Courthouse.

One of signs posted had several mug shots of people wearing Obama t-shirts stating there must be a message here, insinuating that Obama supporters could be criminals. Friday, some Lubbock residents said they thought head should resign, "I believe, just because he made that statement, that he should resign. Because the people believe that he will never be fair with people that are brown or black ever."

The group also plans to hold a protest next Friday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. at the courthouse.
