An attorney who refused to remove her Black Lives Matter button was removed from the courtroom and taken into custody after a judge declared her in contempt of court.

According to WKBN-TV, Youngstown Municipal Court Judge Robert Milich said Attorney Andrea Burton was in contempt of court for refusing to remove the BLM button in his courtroom as instructed.

She was sentenced to five days in jail, but she has been released on a stay while an appeal is underway.

She will stay out of jail during the appeals process as long as she obeys the judge’s order not to wear any items that make a political statement in the courtroom.

Judge Milich said his action has nothing to do about his personal opinion of the domestic terror group.

“A judge doesn’t support either side,” he said. “A judge is objective and tries to make sure everyone has an opportunity to have a fair hearing, and it was a situation where it was just in violation of the law.”

The judge said his ruling is based on Supreme Court case law in which a judge can prohibit symbolic political expression in courtrooms, even if it’s not disruptive.

“The judge has the right in any circumstance that they think that some issue or matter will be disruptive to the court or a distraction to the court, they can ask that individual to remove that object,” Matt Mangino, a legal analyst said.

But of course, the Youngstown branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) said its legal counsel is monitoring the case closely as it may violate Burton’s civil rights and community activists are screaming about racism.

“No one wearing an American flag button, no one wearing a crucifix or a Star of David would be removed, so why this particular statement bothered him so much is bothersome,” Kim Akins, a ‘community activist’ said.

Comparing Black Lives Matters to Christian and Jewish organizations in absurd. What a joke. 

“There’s a difference between a flag, a pin from your church or the Eagles and having a pin that’s on a political issue,” Judge Milich said.

Let’s hope this BLM lover loses her appeal and goes to the clinker!

Kudos to the Judge! Keep up the good work!

GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU PATRIOTS AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!
