[Ed. – Guess what his sentence was?]
A Hawaii man convicted of attempted murder for trying to stab someone during a road rage incident appeared for his sentencing hearing this week in blackface, drawing the ire of the presiding judge.
Mark Char was reportedly sentenced for the 2016 road rage incident in March but appeared Monday at a Honolulu courthouse for his sentencing hearing with black marker covering his face, according to Hawaii News Now.
The man also reportedly berated the judge in the case during a nearly three-minute speech because he felt as though he was not given a fair trial.
Char previously claimed the incident, in which he stabbed a man five times, was an act of self-defense. …
“Now this kangaroo court is trying to give me a life sentence for me trying to protect and defend myself. … Today, I’m going to be a black man.”
