Man charged with burning cross in driveway
Edited on Wed Nov-16-11 03:44 PM by The Northerner
PANAMA CITY A recent cross burning at the home of a Panama City mixed-race couple does not signal the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan; it was the symptom of something understandable to anyone whos ever been afraid of losing someone.

LB Williams, a 50-year-old black man, his wife of nearly seven years Donna Williams, who is white, and their bi-racial daughter found a cross burning in their driveway on Nov. 4. Their grandchild was home too.

When I saw that cross burning, I was scared to death, Donna Williams said. I was terrifiedwe all were.

They called police and reported it. Her grandbaby still reports seeing fires outside the house, even when there are none. Theres a scar burned into the driveway in the shape of a cross, she said.

1. "It wasnt a hate crime, but a love crime." . . .
Sounds like a terribly sad family going through a very emotional breakup.

I wish them well. . .

The cross and the notes were the desperate acts of a desperate man, Williams said. Police agreed. The fact that Williams was released from jail on two felonies without any bond might be a good indication of the danger he poses to the community (though hes not allowed to go home, a standard condition of bond in domestic violence cases).

He truly is a good man. He doesnt drink, he doesnt do drugs and he works like a dog, Donna Williams said. We just cant be together.
