DENVER – A study of prosecutorial decisions made by the Denver District Attorney’s Office released Wednesday found “a persistent set of disadvantages faced by Black and Hispanic defendants” compared to white people going through the criminal justice system. The study looked at thousands of felony cases charged between July 2017 and June 2018 in Denver. Authors also interviewed 20 prosecutors from the district attorney’s office. The study was commissioned by District Attorney Beth McCann, funded by the Colorado Evaluation and Action Lab at the University of Denver, and authored by Stacey Bosick, the interim associate vice president of academic programs

What are the disadvantages that existed before they committed the crimes for which they face prosecution? Werent they woke? Didn’t they have enough money for cigarettes and beer? Their unemployment ran out? What exactly was their disadvantages? Seems a common factor in their statistical analysis is that black and brown people commit more crimes that White people commit. The statue of Justice is blindfolded, holding the scale of evidence and the swift sword of Justice. Serve Justice and do not serve preferential punishment based on discriminatory Fake excuses.

Being 3% of the population black males between 18 and 39 commit a clear majority of all violent crimes. Anyone thought of how disadvantageous it is to non blacks going peacefully about their lives??

Oh fer Chrissake. I read the article twice, and it still doesn’t make any sense. If it weren’t for blacks and Hispanics, the city of Denver would have a crime rate roughly equivalent to that of Luxembourg.

Used to, people felt as though they were held accountable by their fathers and the Almighty God. Shaming your family was not something one did lightly. If you answer to no one, you will deal drugs, commit mob violence and destroy just because people on the news say you should be offended about something. Lack of accountability is the biggest hurdle to "people of color." What they don't say is that deferred prosecution programs only work if a person has a true incentive to change. They will be available to people with a good family structure, employment, and perhaps involvement in college or vocational training. If you are just running around the 'hood, it would be a waste of resources.

Yeah, in a legal proceeding it is a huge disadvantage to be actually guilty of doing a violent crime. Black males do well over half of all violent crimes, while representing approximately 6% of the US population. If you only consider the ages between about 14 and 50, that is probably only 3% of the US population doing well over half of all violent crime. Gee, If you wonder why there are so many blacks in prison - perhaps it is because they are doing the majority of the crimes and DESERVE to be in prison.

The disadvantages were created by them. They couldn't or wouldn't study and stay in school. They couldn't or wouldn't hold a job. They couldn't or wouldn't obey the law, and behave in a socially acceptable manner. None of this is because minorities don't have schools, or opportunities to improve their lives. It's because they chose to live this way. They chose this path in life. It's easier to blame whitey and racism, then it is to be responsible for your own life.

It's 1977. I'm working at Ford in a temp position and I've been told how temporary it is so I'm looking for a full time position. I talked with a number of people, among them a foreman who was easy to get along with. I asked how he got his job. He paused a sec and, looking straight at me, he said 'Because I'm black." He followed that it was an opportunity he couldn't pass up and he was going to make the best of it (great. What anyone could ask for) but... it was something I couldn't have. If I were to be reincarnated and wanted to make it easier for me to advance with only the same effort I put forth now? I'd be black. And female but what opens a whole can of worms, doesn't it?

Stanford University researchers have identified five new cases of a “double mutant” Covid-19 strain that was recently discovered in the San Francisco Bay Area. Doctors suspect it could be more contagious than earlier strains and may be resistant to existing vaccines. The new variant originated in India where it’s credited with a recent 55% surge in cases in the state of Maharashtra, home to Mumbai, after months of declining cases. It contains two key mutations, which scientists call E484Q and L452R, that have been found separately in other variants but not together in a single strain, according to Dr. Benjamin

In announcing his gun restrictions, Biden specifically addressed the Second Amendment. While Biden insisted that none of his gun control measures impinged on the Second Amendment, he also insisted that “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute.” “Nothing, nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment. They’re phony arguments suggesting that these are Second Amendment rights at stake for what we’re talking about,” he argued. Then came the key statement:

Harry's grandfather's death comes weeks after they gave an interview to Oprah alleging racism in the Royal Family which aired while Philip was in hospital. The Sussexes, who faced calls to postpone the interview because Philip was unwell, accused an unnamed royal, not the Queen nor the duke, of raising concerns about how dark their son Archie's skin tone would be before he was born.
