Sheriff Newell Normand

MSNBC apologized Tuesday for Jefferson Parish, LA Sheriff Newell Normand’s use of offensive language during a news conference to announce the arrest of the motorist who shot and killed Joe McKnight.

Ronald Gasser, 54, was arrested and jailed on a manslaughter charge on Tuesday in connection with the shooting death of the former NFL running back. Gasser was released on bond.

McKnight, 28, was shot and killed by Gasser during a road rage incident in Terrytown, LA, near New Orleans on Dec. 1.

Gasser claimed he was standing his ground when he fired his weapon while seated in the driver’s side of his car. McKnight was struck multiple times and died on the ground between the two cars.

The gunman was originally taken into custody on Thursday. But he was later released with no charges, prompting a furious public backlash against the sheriff’s department and elected officials.

Normand expressed disappointment in the citizens of Louisiana and around the country for not letting justice take its course.

“Unfortunately, a life was lost, but you want to know something, folks? Two people engaged in bad behavior that day,” he said.

Normand apologized to black elected officials whom he says stood by him after he let Gasser walk free last week.

“You are true leaders, you are credible leaders. You did not do what was in your best interest. You did what was in the best interest of the community and you’re suffering for it and I feel bad for you,” he said, addressing the politicians.

Normand then read out loud some of the vitriol he claims black elected officials and sheriff’s personnel received from concerned citizens.

”’You punk ass Uncle Tom coon, we saw you sell out to them, you rat ass f*ggot punk,'” said Normand, quoting one citizen.

MSNBC Anchor Tamron Hall abruptly cut away from Normand’s news conference to protect her viewers’ sensibilities.

“Ladies and gentlemen, we’re going to pivot from this, what has been… first of all, let me apologize for some of the language we were not expecting,” said Hall. “That is the sheriff from Jefferson Parish who used several, what he said were quotes directed at sheriffs in his department, slurs, racial slurs and homophobic remarks that, we quite honestly did not expect from the sheriff of a police department.”

Many viewers took to social media to complain bitterly about the interruption. “I find the censoring by MSNBC more offensive than anything the sheriff said,” wrote one Breitbart.com reader on Tuesday.

    Not sure how to feel. This is becoming a circus. Sn, how was he standing his ground though? Is that law effective in Louisiana???

  • Freeriah

    The sheriff said all of them words because he always wanted to call black people that. He just saw a way to say them and is using his job as a reason why he used them vulgur terms to describe blacks.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    We hear that kind of language practically every day in regular everyday life, so it didn’t really offend me that much.

    Inappropriate? probably. But not that shocking to me.

  • Nonya Bizness

    I like Tamron Hall, but why does she need to apologize for a racist who was just itching for an excuse to use that word? He didn’t need to read those comments. SMH. I’m also tired of this one sided “Stand my ground”. It only seems to work for certain people. It didn’t work for that woman in Fl who tried to stand her ground in her kitchen against her husband. I know she was eventually released from prison, but after a lot of Bull, and what exactly was he standing his ground against? N/M. Just more Bull.

  • casiepriest33

    My great state of Louisiana (sarcasm ). This is c00n train station. We negros always talking about forgiveness tho. I say an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. Like my idol Malcolm X says: don’t give up your life, it’s the greatest thing you’ve got, but if you do let it be even Steven.

    I agree 100%. When Pookie shoots Tyrone in the ‘hood, the “stand your ground” defense would never work for him in court. He’d get laughed out of the courtroom.

  • iWasteTime

    And? Didn’t that white anchorwoman censor and than cry when the N word was used on her show by a Black man?
    No one wants to hear that, what a professional law enforcement agent, who is live on television, should have said was “The threats, notes and downright offensive correspondence that the Black elected officials received are outrageous and inappropriate”
    What he did, by claiming that the offensive language came from one Black person to another was further divide his community and the country that was watching. I see what he did there and he should be reprimanded and never allowed to address the media again.

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    Lmaooooooo

  • RespectSelf

    There are several issues being pointed out in just this one post. It is a very tough thing for a lot of black folks who work in the law enforcement field. And based on how they have been trained and what they see… a lot of them feel like they are doing their jobs…. But they be getting a lot of heat from their fellow black people….

  • Buttercup

    I was taken aback when I heard the sheriff reading excerpts from the message.

  • classycns

    So why such and unflattering pick of Tamron? Did she reject/offend you?LOL.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    I dont think they’ll be letting him conduct any more live news conferences. Ever.

    On another note… I love EVRYTHING that is Tamron Hall. She is member #4 in my fantasy harem.

    Yes, I’m sure Breitbart readers’ ears were burning at the sound of those comments. They embrace anger and rage.

    The sheriff made the shooting about him/others instead of focusing on the jackass who shot and killed Mr. McKnight. Shame on him!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I think she will wait simply bc Khloe Simpson waited to divorce Slow-Mar after he almost managed to die. They dont want to come across as “unfeeling”

  • Buttercup

    I think they were secretly waiting for Lam Lam to go on another binder and manage to die. Since it looks like he’s built Ford tough, they had Khloe move on to her next victim.

  • Jen_no_juice

    I couldn’t watch the whole video cause I was getting too upset and work around too many yt folks to be angry. But he needs to be real, you only charged him because of the letters (he wanted to read), outrage, and threats. So stop acting like this was part of the plan for justice to be served. This almost sounds like he’s blaming the victim and had his opening statement for the trial

  • dear me

    tamron hall is there to report the news not edit it. she, nor NBC have the right to determine what might be to offensive for me. tamron hall is one of those closet racists. notice the malcom x buttons on her blouse or dress? she sat in for lester holt 6 pm news wearing same clothes and same malcom x buttons. look, i know she is black. does she think we can’t tell.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Yup.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    I actually dont believe it. When its based on the word of “a friend” or “an unnamed source” it could all be just made up for all we know.
    But they’ll get tons of clicks on their site for this story… which is really what it’s all about at the end of the day.

    Yup. I think its going to be tough to get a conviction on this one.
    Once he describes in court how this big angry black man aggressively rushed toward him and made him “fear for his life”… we all know how it usually goes from there.

    That’s probably why there are 2 or 3 there.

    That is one fine looking woman.
    I’m surprised she’s still single at her age (46).

  • Buttercup

    Yeah she is. I think she may be #1.

  • nucynu25

    I had a long convo with my mom & dad abt this . My mom basically said it was 2 stupid mfs being stupid & McKnight got the short end of the stick . Of course , I disagreeded but she asked me what abt accountability .. Why did Joe get out of the car ? Someone should’ve been the bigger person ..Most of y’all know my parents are cops so these are always touchy subjects for us , especially with my radical ass but I had to agree .
    Now Normand bish ass is another story . You are supposed be a leader not divider . It was not vital to read those letters . Your job is to keep the ppl infirmed not to spew hate , no matter where it came from . Sit yo emotional ass down & let somebody else have the mic if yo racist ass can’t deal .Pig ass more upset over comments than the loss if s life ? Are you angry at the 10 month old baby who was shot ?

    But this is McKnight’s SECOND road rage incident.

    The first one was ten years ago when he used his truck to bully another driver and then he followed the other driver to the gas station and McKnight punched him multiple times while the victim was pumping gas.

    I said it before if McKnight had been black he would still be in jail for that incident but since he is white he only received a slap on the wrist.

    I think your parents are right about that part of it… Yea nobody had to get out the car or trip about anything. Unfortunately that’s not where it stopped. Someone loss their life over dumb shit. And the biggest part of it out is that the killer was let go! The problems is that there is a common assumption that had the same turn of events took place and a black man killed a white man with the same story……. he would not have been able to walk freely…

    As for Normand… him saying that was needed. To shed light on how ALL black folks get hate left and right from EVERYBODY. even they own people.

    Right , it was just foolish . I told my mom the same thing . I think most of the outrage stemmed from him being let go not necessarily the shooting .

In a civilized society how can murder be the 1st act of defense ? Now , I disagree with you on the 2nd part ..Norm and don’t say nothing we didn’t know ..it was simply inapproiate to read those comments .

    If you can’t see what the sheriff is doing by this press conference he is clearly provoking and inciting the racial division. It was not necessary for him to repeat these vile threats posted online.

    Yep the shooter is as wrong as they come and was prob looking for someone to shoot. That’s why I say sometimes it’s better to walk the freak away. People are cray. That’s not meant to victim blame McKnight though.

  • Taylordanes

    Right! His plan is to divide and conquer. You are 100%

    These sprites make the most hateful comments toward US and each other. Yet he wants to tell black folk how to come at each other

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    The law says he doesn’t have to flee from a threatening situation. I disagree with Stand Your Ground, but it protects people in these types of scenarios

  • Taylordanes

    How many times has a black person won a stand your grown case that would be interesting to know ?

  • nucynu25

    BC everybody but the victim gets sympathy …poor white man , poor police , poor city leaders ..What abt the armed blk man that’s dead ? What abt his family or his young son , who is now fatherless ?

  • RationalThinkersUnite

    I agree with your parents to a certain extent, but it’s a slippery slope. Not saying they are using Joe’s decision to get out of the car as a justification for homicide but if we ask why he got the car we have to ask why didn’t Gasser continue driving? Cars can be just as deadly as weapons so whether he choose to get out or not should not be the deciding factor.

  • Taylordanes

    And he is telling black people how to deal with one another. Not his place. Why not put these sprites in check for their racist comments toward the victim? Why not send condolences to the family. It’s time for this man to go. Louisiana Do BETTER

  • Taylordanes

    So why not drive off if you scared or to a police station

  • Taylordanes

    Very true

  • nucynu25

    They were in traffic ..that’s a detail I didn’t know until that convo. Gasser couldn’t move .

  • Taylordanes

    Yes all this! I was wondering why no condolences to the family…

  • Taylordanes

    The law may not say he doesn’t have to flee but common sense says to drive off or to a police station to avoid danger.

  • TheMissus

    Under the stand your ground laws, you don’t have to “retreat”. Hence, standing your ground.

  • Taylordanes

    Understood but common sense says avoid conflict unless you want to be in a dispute. Stand your ground and risk being killed yourself

  • TheMissus

    It’s because it’s a morning show and they usually give prior warning if the language or material may be offensive. Minors may be watching.

  • nucynu25

    That’s what am saying sis ..I think if anybody is familiar with my font they know I Dont take up for no crackas ..its still fuk Gasser but I am a logical person . McKnight made a foolish decision stepping out that car .. Should it I’ve cost him his life no ? Fuk No ..but at some point we everybody in the situation has to accountable for the part they played . Put it thus way ..if you cursing somebody out for abt 15 miles on the highway & they approach ..what is your reaction ? So I just see how my momma came to the conclusion that you just have to very foolish ppl involved in a foolish situation.

  • TheMissus

    We had one in FL (Tampa Bay area). It was a black dude and he shot at white dude (he didn’t die), but the black dude was not charged or arrested. He wasn’t even the driver. He was in the backseat during the “road rage” incident. It’s crazy!

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    ‘Cause that would be too much like right

  • TheMissus

    His PIO should have written his talking points….smh

  • rayne215

    since when is internet trolls worthy of having their comments repeated during a live news conf? you more torn up about that than the unarmed man that lost his life.

  • GuestSTAR

    I heard the press conference and he sounded as if he was angry they even had to arrest the guy. Left to him, the killer would be still walking free.

  • Queen of EVERYTHING

    He been dreaming and waiting for the opportunity to use those precise words directed towards those specific people on a public platform.

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    Sounds like Zimmerman. Big and bold when following dude, scared azz puzzy when dude finally turns around.

    Being the bigger person is great but every so often people need their card pulled. Entitlement is deadly for the other party involved. It’s not right, but adults need a good azz whoopin’ every now and then or they’ll think they can say and do anything they want to anybody they want. Not how life works.

  • rayne215

    Stand your ground is such BS. its nothing wrong with self defense, but Stand your ground laws take it to far, and like everything else, blacks are always getting the short end of stick when it comes to it

  • TheMissus

    I completely agree. All sense ain’t common

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    The FCC has no right to come after anyone these days. The moment the President Elect can says ‘Grab ’em by the puzzy’ bad words became fair game.

  • nucynu25

    Yess , def reminds me of Travon & Zimmerman . Bold enough to chase but when the hunted turns around fear suddenly emerges …

  • Lisa daniels

    I so dislike being right

  • We Can Do This

    Right, because that same law wouldn’t work for us. There is no way we could go home after standing our ground, even if our homes were evaded.

  • klwbaby

    Congratulations nitwit, u just made a situation that was already messed up, a 100 times worse….I like how he said let the justice system run its course but choosing to focus on what some random “black” people said online clearly shows his true colors….

  • Look@m3

    Man this heading had me like WHOOOOOAAAAAA (now let me read)

  • Look@m3

    OMG. Why am I laughing at this man say these things?? Why is this funny! He says it so well….wtfreak!

  • Look@m3

    Maybe that’s why I am laughing at this…it waslike I finally get to say some off the wall ish on national TV and Im going ALL IN. CHOPPING HEADS, SLASHING THROATS and RIPPING HEARST OUT! LIKE…I DONT GIVE A FUQ

  • Kbellaluvvs

    The sad part is they know exactly what the Sheriff is doing and they love it!

  • You already know ?

    ?????????????

    TUH

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Who said it was? I didn’t say it was good or bad to be in law enforcement, whether you’re black or white. An attribute tho? What kind of an attribute? I didn’t say it was an attribute I agreed with nucynu’s parents statement and had common ground w her because my father served as an officer. K?

  • Peter Piper ATL

    He’s been wanting to say that stuff forever. What a ridiculous hick they have for a sheriff. And he looks like Archie Bunker.

  • Zizzle
  • morenYAHdelsur

    He’s nuts just like the Sheriff before him. Happy that he’s bothered by opinions of him. Also glad that everybody gets to see how @$$backwards politics can be in Louisiana.

  • hottlanta

    A black person didn’t say that. When curse we always say you mofo and cut it short.

  • hottlanta

    Love you.

  • jussaying

    ugh lmao can y’all put nfl will smith. every time someone says will smith i’m like oh nah what da fresh prince doooo

  • nucynu25

    ????

  • Freeriah

    Yeah he’s not head sheriff material. He’s a racist his self. And I feel that they need to do away with this stand your ground law. It’s just giving devils a reason to kill blacks.

    I see you flunked reading comprehension.

  • FoxyDiva

    Its terrible there!!

  • Brenda Meeks

    If it had been a AA Man that shot a white man for any reason! And you all
    Know this, I don’t care what race you are. You know the culture of law enforcement in this country. The FBI put a report saying the KKK and the white supremacist has seriously infiltrated law enforcement !

    I wouldn’t have called those Black
    Official out of there names. But, they remind me of during slaver these white pet slaves turn in runaways to the master! They out to be ashamed of themselves. Remind me of Dr Carson?! Trump didn’t even offer him a renown Surgeon the Surgeon General Job, or the Education position which Carson wanted! He offered him the position over the Housing Administration because Carson was raised in the projects! ?

    That sheriff is a Neanderthals! Google it!

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Yep

  • Janice Collins

    No reason. Why did McKnight get out of his car.? And Carson didn’t want to be SG. He want the HUD job. Did you not follow his platform when he was running. I commend this sheriff. He should have post the names of those racist. No matter what color you are you have no right to talk to anyone that way.

  • Janice Collins

    You do know it was black people sending black people those insult. Nobody hate us like us

  • Janice Collins

    Mf’s wanted to write that.

  • Janice Collins

    So Trump made a black person call another black person a coon.

  • the conscious one

    Yea, I do know that and that doesn’t give him a pass. He should have focused on the case and not worry about what someone said on social media. He is not master and we are not in the fields anymore.

  • Janice Collins

    Lol pass. So it’s ok for a black person to spew racist sentiments to another black person, but God forbid someone airs them out. I want to know who these folks are who are calling people coons.

  • Janice Collins

    Did you know this law was made so drug dealers could kill each other in peace. Oh the law been working in the community but we don’t want to put that out there.

  • Zizzle
  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    You betta not, unless you want those supple beauties blistered. ?

    I remember as a teen my pop pop saying there was a kissing disease going around and not to share makeup, drinking glasses or kisses.

  • the conscious one

    You obviously don’t know how white supremacy works because you are falling for it out the gate. Your going back and forth about someone being called a coon, maybe someone has called you one and that’s why your hung up on it idk. Maybe you should re-watch the video and get past the name calling and try focusing on what’s really going on.

  • https://www.facebook.com/RDU.Defense.Lawyer NCDEFENSELAWYER

    No. The sheriff should focus on the valuable life lost due to lawlessness and refrain from switching the conversation to “blacks are animals.” You have one to ten folks that engaged officials improperly and you decide to focus on them? Give them attention? Why? The agenda has always been these brown skin folks don’t know how to behave so it’s okay to gun them down.

    Stay focused and woke!
