Judge Tom Head issues apology

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock County Judge, Tom Head, issued an apology statement to everyone offended by some controversial postings he put up on a bulletin board at the Lubbock County Courthouse. Those offended by the material earlier this month found the anti-Obama political material racially charged.

One display included arrest photos of nine people wearing Obama shirts, seven of them black men. Displayed with the photos were printouts critical of Obama supporters, suggesting backers of former Republican Presidents generally don't get arrested.

In his statement, Judge Head says he, "never meant any racial disrespect."

This comes after a group of concerned citizens called for head's resignation Friday. The group will hold a peaceful protest on Friday at the Courthouse at 1:30 p.m.
