(( In early June, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference accused Valley View Mall of discriminating against blacks.
They made a public example of a confrontation between 25- year- old Robert Manns and Valley View's security chief, John Rutledge.
Manns filed assault charges-- accusing Rutledge of shoving him.
In turn, Rutledge charged Manns with trespassing, saying he refused to leave the mall when he was asked to.
Testimony revealed Manns left the mall-- then came back.
A judge has ruled Manns was guilty of trespassing, but did NOT enter a conviction of record.
