[and racial bigotry]
It’s all a plot by whitey.
I don’t care about your BS reasons, Mosby, just let people who are not criminals out of prison.
“racial disparity” in arrests is not necessarily indicative of anything except differences in BEHAVIOR.
I see other articles that this prosecutor has stated they will no longer prosecute any Marijuana possession cases.
In other news, Baltimore is changing it’s name to Tokesummore
Wondered whatever happened to her, guess still crying Racist.
Convictions on marijuana possession often piggyback on arrests made for more serious violations. Rape, burglary, theft, assault, even murder. You name it. Arrest some thug and not find pot on them? Not likely.
But... DA’s often find to hard and troublesome to make a case for the serious crimes. The courts are backlogged and it’s far easier to get a plea deal for possession. So that’s what they do.
So they essentially put a career criminal in prison where he belongs just because of a few ounces.
Is this wrong? Should they instead spend tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars making the real case for which the thug was arrested for? Or should they just dismiss 2/3 of all arrests because they don’t have the courts available to handle these cases?
Yeah, its a cop-out to take the easy way out and use possession as the way to get these thugs in jail. But this is the world we live in.
So for Mosby or anyone to use marijuana convictions as a race card or as “proof” that anyone - black or white - is in jail simply for possession is false.
Just not true.
Sadly, blacks do not care about laws....I mean the BLACKS WHO ARE IN OFFICE! DISGUSTING!
And if any of this is true, then which party was running Baltimore during those years?
If its arrests for small amounts, I’m OK with it. But she’d get a lot more mileage out of what she did if she didn’t play the “blame the man” and oppression game in doign this.
