Eric Hambrick's killer gets a blessing from Tomie Green

Eric Hambrick
The life of Eric Hambrick is worth less than ten years in Hinds County.  Hinds County Circuit Judge blessed his killer, Arkel Coleman, with a sentence that put him back on the streets in 2025.   Coleman beat him to death and robbed him nearly two years ago at the Waffle House on High Street. 

Mr. Hambrick was an employee at MEMA.   He was a talented singer as he performed in the Mississippi Opera and in the choir at First Baptist Church (Jackson).  He attended Thursday night choir practice on May 28, 2015.  He unfortunately stopped at the Waffle House on High Street at 10:30 PM.  The 19 year-old Arkel Coleman thought the 52 year-old man would be easy prey and beat him with his fists.  Mr. Hambrick fell to the ground and sustained more injuries when his head violently struck the pavement.  His family removed him from life support a few days later.  Arkel Coleman and his accomplice, Sherderwick Anderson, removed a ring that they fancied from a dying Eric Hembrick's finger.  Police arrested the pair within a few days. 

A grand jury indicted the feral Coleman for first degree murder and robbery on June 26, 2015.  He pleaded guilty to manslaughter.  The District Attorney accepted the guilty plea and dropped the robbery charge. Attorney Ali Shamsid-dunce represented Coleman.

Judge Tomie Green reviewed the case and blessed Coleman.  She sentenced him to serve fifteen years in prison but suspended five years of the sentence.  She ordered him to take an anger management class and enroll in a GED class.  She naturally gave him credit for time served in prison.  Thus the amount of time he will serve in prison after conviction is less than nine years.  MDOC records state he will be released on May 30, 2025 - ten years to the day when Eric Hambrick died.  Keep in mind that Shamsid-dunce clerked for Judge Green.

Meanwhile, Anderson was indicted for robbery.  His case is currently growing mold as Judge Kidd continues his usual practice of continuing cases for several years. 

Kingfish note: All Eric Hambrick ever did was serve.  He served the community.  He served at church.  Friends, family, and colleagues all said he was a blessing to others.  His life was taken by a savage, an animal who would never amount to anything and should have been put down like the dog that he is.  However, he is just marking the time until he can party in freedom on his thirtieth birthday while Eric Hambrick will never see another birthday.  

There is no other way to put it: Judge Tomie Green is a threat to public safety.  Judge Green considers her courtroom to be a social experiment instead of a place where justice is meted out to those who deserve it.  Thugs are turned loose to terrorize the community.  Killers such as Coleman get light sentences.  Fathers who rape their own infant children are given leniant but illegal sentences.

Then there is the District Attorney's office.  It negotiated this plea bargain.  It accepted the guilty plea and dropped the robbery charge.  The sad part is, they probably think they did a good job.  

This case is a miscarriage of justice.  Period.  This savage will be back on the streets before he is thirty years-old.  Free to rob and kill again and again.  We are in the middle of a Mayor's race.  Every one of the candidates will talk tough about crime but NOT ONE OF THEM will address the real problem: the prosecutors and judges who backstab the police.  None of them will criticize this sentence or other similar verdicts that are issued in the Hinds County criminal justice system again and again.  At some point, the people who keep putting judges such as Tomie Green bear the blame for what happens in her courtroom and that my friends, is the bottom line .

Here are some more Judge Green blessings
Judge Green's illegal suspension of child molestor's sentence.
No jail for armed robber who carjacks a few months later.
Suspends complete sentence for armed robber.
Suspends another sentence for an armed robber
Suspends two sentences for armed robbery. Maces female clerk and robs her 3 months later.
Suspends all but 20 years of sentence for 1st degree murder conviction.

Is there anything that the Bar or the MS SCt can do to admonish her or get rid of her? This is absolutely disgusting! The more I read about Tomie Green, the sicker I get to my stomach.

Thank you, Kingfish, for staying on top of this. Eric was a choir friend of mine. A gentle, sweet person with a beautiful voice. He did not deserve this travesty of justice. His mom died in January, 2017. She did not deserve this either. No one who knew Eric deserved what, to me, is a slap in the face. So, the killer is supposed to get anger management classes and work on his GED?! And he was convicted of manslaughter after a plea deal. The grand jury indicted him for FIRST DEGREE MURDER AND ROBBERY. Those two criminals who beat Eric down TARGETED him in the parking lot of Waffle House. Another plea deal. The police did their job. The grand jury did their job. The judge failed. Wow. Just Wow.

Judge Green is an embarresment. But she accepted the plea bargin that our esteemed DA negotiated - manslaughter and dropping the second chatge of robbery.

The problem here is our drug-addicted DA who refuses to do his job. Try this basted for murder. Then the judge might be forced into sending him away for life which is what he deserves.

Shame on the DA for agreeing to downgrade the murder charge and dropping the robbery charge.

It's about time we realized that the true reason crime is out of control is the judicial system. The police (JPD INCLUDED) really do a fine job tracking down and building cases against thugs like this. This thug is going to thug school for a few years and is going to get out and do it all over again. Perhaps this 'blessed judge' will not be on the bench the next time this waste-of-human DNA comes into the courtroom.

Why can't Trump end the baby bonus for welfare and social programs? If we can control the breeding of the thug population....(and no, thugs are animals NOT human beings.)

Someone needs to look at how Tomie sentences black defendants versus the way she sentences white ones. I would bet good money that there is a pattern of racial bias.

This woman is a racist. She is no better than those judges in the 1950s who let civil rights murderers go lightly punished if at all.

Judge Green and Judge Kidd are a cancer on central MS, not just Jackson. These catch-and-release participants are not just robbing/harming in Jackson, but in the burbs as well. The way each of them handle cases is EGREGIOUS. Anyone with a law degree could sit in that kangaroo court for a day and find 10+ reversible errors.

Unfortunately the metro area will be held back by these two until they dies, because their constituents continue to re-elect them. I guess when you and your relatives and friends are involved in lives of crime or filing lawsuits against businesses it makes sense to elect people who help your cause.

So, somebody please tell me why I should move back to Jackson to retire. I am a Jackson native and recently returned from out-of-state to see if I wanted to live here in retirement. It was not the city I remembered. This is third-world and still going down. Nothing works. The courts are screwed up, the streets and water systems are broken, the schools are crap, and crime is a huge problem. Entire neighborhoods are falling apart and real estate values make it a huge gamble to invest in a home. A long-time friend can't sell his house and his new neighbors aren't exactly people you want to invite over for a drink. His car has been stolen once and burglarized twice. Am I missing something? I regret it, but my decision has been made.

I'm certainly not a Judge Green cheerleader, but at the end of the day, despite Judge Weill's belief, a Judge's job is basically to call balls and strikes, and in the case of open pleas or jury verdicts, sentence folks. It's not to prosecute. If the guy did the crime, all this righteous anger needs to be directed at the true culprits. ADA Sue Perry signed off on the plea and presented the Order to Nol Pros the other charge. There should be a motion and or Order reducing Capital Murder to Manslaughter. A Judge can't just reduce a charge or dismiss a charge on their own. There has to be something filed for them to rule on to do so. And defense lawyers can't file a motion to reduce a charge. And without the plea petition, we don't know, but I'd bet it was, the plea offered by Perry. Judge Green could have sentenced the guy to 20 to serve, nothing suspended, but other than that, there wasn't anything else she could have done.

And if he's been locked up pretty much since May of 2015, he's probably only got a little over 3 years left to serve. Manslaughter is a 50% crime.

Kingfish said...

That was very concise. Very eloquent even. Very factual.

However, it left out one fact. The prosecutor made an open plea, as is standard practice by the D.A. in Judge Green's courtroom. Judge Green decided this sentence.

Anonymous at 11:56 am is absolutely absurd. Eric had been to practice at First Baptist Church as he did frequently. He stopped to eat dinner and was attacked. Are we to close all the churches in the city of Jackson? These thugs beat to death a teddy bear!! He would have given them anything they asked for; they did not have to beat him to death.

11:56. Blame the victim much? That is ridiculous!! Eating dinner in Jackson is not an open invitation to be murdered. Get a grip.

It is easy to sit behind a computer and criticize. As an attorney, there is always more to the story. It is horrible that a person died. Yes, I agree that the individuals responsible for his murder should be held accountable. My question is, how strong was the case against this individual? Who evidence did the DA have that would hold up in court? Sometimes a plea bargin ensures that person does jail time, whereby with a trial, there is the possibility that a not-guilty verdict could result.

This happens in every county, not just Hinds County. Brandon pharmacist Timothy Rigdon pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual battery. Rigdon was charged with having sex with a minor. He received a 15 year suspended sentence and five years probation. Rigdon also paid a fine of $2500.

There are problems with the criminal justice system in every county. By the way, the prosecutor who handled this case was a white experienced prosecutor who has worked for other prosecutor's office. She had to approve the plea offer. It's just more fun to talk about when we can focus on a black judge.

Kingfish said...

Well my little criminal sympathizer, let me clue you in on one little fact:

The whole incident was captured on the Waffle House surveillance video.

Anonymous said...

Why on Earth would Sue Perry reduce a 1st Degree murder charge all the way down to Manslaughter and then dismiss the armed Robbery charge? She could have reduced it to 2nd degree murder and then let him plead open. Then the sentence would have had to have been between 20 and 40 years. Additionally, I believe 2nd degree time must be served day for day. Was the family of the victim notified of the plea bargain?

Burke said...

One of the predictable consequences of institutionalized white racism is black racism. And Judge Green is a racist.

But as the balance of power has shifted, and white racism is no longer nearly as institutionalized (make an exception for voter id), the main question is why haven't more people of color taken advantage of their increased power? Why are so many locked into a culture of dependency and grievance? I supported white "agitators" back in the day, but their work is pretty much done. Did it go to waste?

It's telling that apparently no person of color will run for office in Jackson by being honest about a systemic lack of accountability in the black "community." It's sad to say, but black politicians, like white politicians of yore, just find it too easy to get elected by blaming everything on the "other people." So the Judge Greens get re-elected. It's a form of corruption, and it breeds other forms of corruption. But at this point, there are fewer and fewer "other people." And we're not powerful, and few of us are racist. Won't someone on the majority side of the street step up and cry out: "The Emperor has no clothes!"

The problem with all of the explanations above about how "you have to understand the specifics of this particular case" is that in Hinds County it seems to happen in every case. Every time one of these cases comes up on this blog it is always explained away in comments by apologists yet again. And it keeps happening. And happening. Maybe it is not reported on, but you don't read about appropriate sentences for violent crimes being handed down regularly in this County. You do read about them happening in other counties. A fed up Jackson resident.

Attn 3:08 You may be an attorney, but not much of one. If you think evidence such as possession of stolen ring, video tape of the assault, and (likely) testimony by the co-defendant for reduced sentencing is not valid evidence, then you missed the days in law school that dealt with evidence. P.S. You are an attorney, but are you bar qualified?

Just curious -- if statistically it can be shown she is ruling in a racist manner -- can DOJ be called in to review her cases, for potentially reverse racism? Whether you live in Madison, Jackson or Brandon -- releasing these thugs is dangerous for everyone. I'm not an attorney, but is there some way to have her rulings "reviewed"? What does it take or is it even possible?

10:02 I can appreciate your points but you can't fix stupid. Jackson is another Petri Dish of Democrat Rule. Maybe one day the Jackson majority will understand that self-reliance is more important than retribution by mis-managed government and tax dollar appropriation but that will be a few generations away. There's dignity in working a job, no matter how lowly or dirty, bringing a paycheck home, fathering a child, remaining sober and managing a household without government assistance. That dignity comes before leadership and then morphs into a demand for better leadership. It's also important to understand that no one has "rights". No one is entitled to anything. This is why Obama nearly destroyed this nation and is a lesson that Jackson desperately needs to learn but you have to hit rock-bottom. Maybe rock-bottom will be below the water and sewer pipes.

But, as you sit there and whine, it's your suggestion that republicans in the legislature should remove her from office?

Would This Apply?.. said...

Mississippi judges may be removed in one of three ways:
• On the recommendation of the commission on judicial performance, the supreme court may censure, remove, or retire a judge.
• Judges may be impeached by two thirds of the house of representatives and removed by the senate.
• Judges may be removed by the governor on the joint address of two thirds of both houses of the legislature.

Who hired them... said...

Eric went to this place "frequently" as an earlier poster said and if anyone knows what his job entailed (approving agency purchases), then it's enough to make one wonder who wanted him dead. Two young black men in Jackson hired to take him out because he wouldn't do what he was told by those in higher places in MS that could never happen...and a deal worked where the murder charge was dropped to manslaughter (!). WOW

The constitution of the state of Mississippi, which y'all patriots seem unfamilar with, says:

The governor and all other civil officers of this state, shall be liable to impeachment for treason, bribery, or any high crime or misdemeanor in office.

SOURCES: 1817 art “Impeachment,” §3; 1832 art VI §3; 1869 art IV §28.

Judgment in such cases shall not extend further than removal from office and disqualification to hold any office of honor, trust, or profit in this state; but the party convicted shall, nevertheless, be subject to indictment, trial, judgment, and punishment according to law.

SOURCES: 1817 art “Impeachment,” §3; 1832 art VI §3; 1869 art IV §30.

When the governor shall be tried, the chief justice of the Supreme Court shall preside; and when the chief justice is disabled, disqualified, or refuses to act, the judge of the Supreme Court next oldest in commission shall preside; and no person shall be convicted without concurrence of two-thirds of all the senators present.

SOURCES: 1869 art IV §29.

For reasonable cause, which shall not be sufficient ground of impeachment, the governor shall, on the joint address of two-thirds of each branch of the legislature, remove from office the judges of the Supreme and inferior courts; but the cause or causes of removal shall be spread on the journal, and the party charged be notified of the same, and have an opportunity to be heard by himself or counsel, or both, before the vote is finally taken and decided.

11:19 am If you have been living in a suburb or small town, you might not be happy in Jackson. If you have no street smarts about avoiding being a crime victim, you should not live in any city. But, if you have been living in a large city , you will find it a relief. Crime, though high, is in poor areas and highest in the black community.
Cases such as this make headlines because unlike in big cities, many white Mississippians expect immunity from crime.
Your chance of getting murdered as a white person by a stranger of a different race is pretty much what it is in any city and much lower than in many cities across the nation. Jackson still hasn't had the trouble with serial killers and children being kidnapped off the streets that you find in many cities like some southern cities have had for decades. Also, our criminals tend to be much dumber and not pros... except of course for white collar criminals and corrupt politicians but we don't like to talk about being the most corrupt state in the country. We'd rather focus on problems in the other race so we don't have to deal.

If anyone read today's Clarion Ledger story supposedly the young man struck Hambricks because he was gay and propositioned him for sex. All Judge Green said was maybe something made you angry... blah blah blah.

So GBLTQ community, if this is the case, where is the outrage on the sentence? Manslaughter carries a max of 20. This young man, who is clearly a bigot to boot, is only getting 10. Can you say Hate Crime? Where are the protesters at Ali Shamsideen's office? He probably perpetuated this hoax to get his client off with a plea bargain.

3 things are at play here:
1. Seems that only conservative bloggers are concerned about equal justice for Hambrick
2. Judge Green doesn't value a gay person's life as much as others.
3. GBLTQ community is too scared to call out a democrat when clearly justice is not being served. Even if Hambrick wasn't gay or didn't proposition him, the fact that Ali Shamsideen, Judge Green and the DA are willing to devalue a life using a 'gay' narrative is a horrible ploy that should be called out.

I knew Eric and I don't believe for a minute that he was gay. The WJTV video posted March 21 has the killer Arken Colemen's attorney saying that Eric made a "lewd" comment and said something about the guy's sagging pants. Eric was quiet, not a person who would ever confront someone. I do not believe that he said this to the killer. The Clarion Ledger on March 22 printed "“Mr. Hambrick propositioned him,” Coleman’s lawyer, Ali M. Shamsid-Deen of Jackson, said his client told him.' 10:17, I do believe, like you said, this is a hoax conceived to get his client off with a plea bargain, and it worked. It's a crying shame that Eric cannot tell his side of the story. RIP, Eric. Sorry that you are not getting justice for your life being cut short.

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
