STATES WITH HIGHER PROPORTIONS OF BLACK CITIZENS MORE LIKELY TO HAVE DEATH PENALTY, STUDY FINDS

Dr. David Jacobs, a professor and co-author of this study proves what we have always said about the criminal justice system; that justice is not blind.  It paints the perception that a white person’s life is more valuable than a black person’s life. 

Why isn’t the Department of Justice a sponsor of this study?  They are the leading law enforcement agency of the land.  But as we know the head of DOJ can’t even tell the truth about firing attorneys so how are we supposed to trust him or the DOJ to enforce equal protection under the law for people of color?
