Update at 3:45 PM: JJ obtained a copy of the raw video from WLBT. It is nearly six minutes long and lets just say it is rather colorful. Ms. Burns would only allow the interview if the cameras did not show her face. There is a part of the clip where the video is blacked out but the audio still plays.
Original post at 12:01 AM: The mother of Jerome Moore defended her son to reporters today. Moore is charged with several counts of carjacking and one count of capital murder in the death of Carolyn Temple. You have to see this video to believe it.
WAPT published a transcript:
Moore's mother, Shronda Burns, said her son wasn't involved in the attack on Temple.Kingfish note: One word for her: Animal. Its not too hard to see the rotten apple came from a rotten tree. However, its not too hard to say there are a few parents just like her but live in nice houses and drive BMW's while sending their kids to private schools. This site has covered a few trials of brutal killers who had parents who excused everything they did and pulled strings to get them off of the hook.
"My son ain't going to shoot no gun," Burns said. "Now, I'm not saying that he wouldn't rob nobody, but I know he won't shoot no gun."
Burns said her son is well known in south Jackson.
"Every police (officer) up in there knows him," Burns said. "My son is known for house burglary. That's all his charges when he was going to the detention center was house burglary."
