A football player violently raped a woman and tried to justify it by saying: “that’s for 400 years of slavery.”
“Mr. Batey continued to abuse and degrade me, urinating on my face while uttering horrific racial hate speech that suggested I deserved what he was doing to me because of the color of my skin. He didn’t even know who I was.”
In prior court hearings, prosecutors have acknowledged a racial statement was made but it was never said publicly in court.
On Friday, multiple sources confirmed to The Tennessean the statement Batey made. “That’s for 400 years of slavery you b—-,” Batey said, according to the sources.
Corey Batey didn’t get away with his crime. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison in what the judge called “one of the saddest cases that I have ever encountered.”
This should have never happened and this person was clearly a criminal. He got off lightly for his crimes and he deserves any further punishment that he receives.
