What do you do if you’re found guilty of molesting a kid and it’s on videotape? You swallow a bunch of pills and hope to die. I’m not sure what bothers me more, the fact that he’s not man enough to face his sentence, or the fact that he’s so unoriginal with his reaction. That Wall Street dude already did this once and succeeded. And now Rev. Harris had to go follow the white man and half-ass himself…*smh*
The Rev. James Harris sat through a three-day trial on charges of sex crimes involving juveniles, even rarely showing emotion during closing arguments on Thursday.
But after a jury convicted him of the charges — for which he faces up to 80 years in prison — he surprised everyone in the courtroom by trying to swallow several white pills.
Courtroom deputies immediately grabbed Harris, repeatedly yelling at him to spit out the pills as they wrestled with him in the West Palm Beach courthouse. Once they subdued Harris, deputies called West Palm Beach Fire Rescue and bagged the extra pills so they could be identified.
Harris, 64, was on trial for six felony sex crimes stemming from his encounters with a 15-year-old boy in 2008 and 2009. He lured the victim, an athlete, with claims of professional contacts such as trainers who could help the boy achieve his dreams of playing in the NFL.
The victim testified that Harris performed sex acts on him on two occasions, even videotaping him at times. Prosecutors Chrichet Mixon and Michael Kugler played both videos during the trial.
One video showed the boy masturbating under Harris’ direction as a porn movie plays in the background. The other video showed the boy having sex with his girlfriend, 14, who did not intially realize Harris was videotaping them. She left after she heard Harris commenting as the two had sex.
Alright now, God, you need to see about your people.
Seriously, if there was a god up there, and all the hullabaloo about Jesus and miracles and burning bushes was actually true, he would definitely have some explaining to do. All these dudes are straight up wildin’ out and you’re just chillin? Letting them lead people and give instructions in your name or whatever?
I would be mad as hell. Shit, I don’t even like it when somebody I can’t stand on Tumblr reblogs something I wrote. I’m like “Ugh, she is so whack with all her kitten pictures and one line updates about how she just ate a cupcake. I don’t wanna be associated with her.” But to be the supreme ruler of the universe and some child molestor is using your name to get kiddie action? Forreal? And you just gonna relax and let that happen?
God needs to get his priorities in check. It’s not like he’s doing anything about starving children or famine or AIDS or anything at all really. People are forever going on and on like “thank you God for allowing me to see another day.” That’s cute and all, but I’ll save my thanks for when he does something actually amazing, like making sure babies never get cancer or getting Danity Kane back together.
