be newsCivil rights groups filed a complaint this week against a federal judge after she allegedly said during a lecture that some minorities are ‘prone to violence’.

Judge Edith Jones, who serves on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, allegedly made the comment while speaking on the death penalty to The Federalist Society at the University of Pennsylvania in February.

According to the some of the accounts in the complaint, the judge said, “Racial groups like African- Americans and Hispanics are predisposed to crime.”
