A live press conference regarding the investigation into the shooting death of former NFL player Joe McKnight quickly turned bizarre as Jefferson Parish sheriff Newell Normand appeared to lose his cool with the ramblings of social justice warriors online.

Tired of witnessing Louisiana lawmakers being berated by an angry mob spewing profane and racist rhetoric on social media, Sheriff Normand made the decision to call these individuals out by reading some of the worst comments on live television.

Here is a quick background on the shooting via TheWrap:

McKnight, a former NFL running back for both the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs, was murdered in Terrytown, Louisiana, in an apparent road rage incident. He was 28. The suspect in the shooting was identified as Ronald Gasser, whose prompt release from prison hours after the shooting sparked outrage on social media.

Normand apparently took just as much offense to the chatter on social media as individuals did that Gasser, who authorities said in a statement “did in fact shoot Mr. McKnight,” wasn’t held in custody until charged Tuesday for manslaughter.

To the shock of MSNBC news anchor Tamron Hall, Sheriff Normand began to read the profane comments on air before the live feed was inevitably cut.

“It’s not fair for him to be called, ‘You punk-a– Uncle Tom coon, we saw you sell out to them, you rata– f—ot punk… That’s the tone of what we call our elected leaders for standing up and simply saying let justice prevail and let the process take its course.” The sheriff stated.

Following harsh criticism over his statements, Sheriff Normand is defending his decision to reiterate the hateful rhetoric, explaining that his goal was to get people “to realize how crazy we’re getting, and that we need to create pause.” Normand further explain that the public needs to allow investigators to ‘do their jobs‘ without rushing to ‘judgement’ and creating ‘furor.’

Thoughts on this? Was Sheriff Normand right to go uncensored on live television or should he have expressed better judgement?
