Deters first major fumble as part-time prosecutor

Having no criminal record, and looking like a frightened teen, 18- year Joseph Burdine was booked in the Hamilton County Just-us system charged with throwing the rock that hit the pretty white girl (God speed to her). Deters, always the publicity whore, always willing to publicly lynch a young person of color before they are convicted in a court of law. It appears Deters did not have the decency to discuss the specifics of the case with the police department. Because of Deters fumble Burdine sat in Hamilton County jail for 10 days on a $650,000 bond before a grand jury decided not to indict him. What the hell? Burdine needs to sue the bumbling-fumbling prosecutor because as a result of him being charged hate flyers were created that encouraged people to do harm to the young man.
