Since he was found guilty and nothing is overturning that, what does it matter?

Odd how these “racial imbalance” laws and decisions never actually confront the other logical inference of those stats... that a disproportionate number of said crimes are actually committed by certain races. Nope... can ONLY be racism, and no other possibilities may be considered.

If he isn’t guilty,let him go. If he is still guilty, why reduce the sentence?

The perp is guilty. NO question of guilt. No question of legal-status of the sentence. Sentence well within guidelines.

But RACE gets her off death row?

Where’s the outrage?

What a load of BS. Whites are assumed by law to be racists.

What they are saying is that a white jury cannot judge a black man. We white people cannot hold anyone but whites accountable in court.

Why not retry the penalty phase? Is 18 yrs too long for that?

He was sentenced longer ago now than his victim had an opportunity to live.

Does anyone here believe this judge came up with this completely on his own? I’d bet that he had some quiet discussions with Holder’s people.

If the judge thought there was bias in the jury selection, he could have applied his opinion to this particular case. Instead, he chose to issue a “landmark ruling” which basically exempts blacks from capital punishment, no matter how heinous the crime.

One of the most screwed up things about the judiciary, it seems to me, is how difficult it is to overturn a half-assed decision. Maybe lawyers have “physics envy” in the sense that they think each decision is the equivalent of a mathematically sound theorem that they can and must build upon. Many decisions, especially those left to individual judges, can be less than ideal, but damnably difficult to reverse due to the deference accorded them.

“Racial justice” = “Affirmative Action”
