    I agree with that, 100%, however I think are more guilty rich people that get off than there are poor people who are wrongfully convicted.

It is not an innate failure. It is not because blacks are somehow inferior. It is because the leftists have a vested interest in keeping them dependent on the govt teat.
    You said it brother!!

    agreed. funny how they always want to blame it on having a public defender and not that they were actually innocent. they just didn't have a good enough lawyer to get them off despite their guilt.

    I have no idea, as I don't know you. But whatever the reason, your anecdotal story does not change the reality that blacks are more likely to receive harsher sentences for comparable crimes. Furthermore, blacks are more likely than whites to be pulled over by the police for "suspicion of illegal drugs" without any real justification.

    I have only ever been acosted by the cops on a few occasions

    1. I was drunk and started a bar brawl

    guilty as charged. I chose to get ****ed up on tequilla and I got what I deserved

    2. various traffic violations over the course of 30 years driving

    guilty as charged. I chose to break the speed limit, run that red light or stop sign, etc

    3. I was stopped once for driving white through a black neighborhood at 5 o'clock in the morning

    cop was very polite, just wanted to know what a white guy was doing in that part of town that early in the morning.


    amazingly I have managed to avoid leaving my fingerprints, DNA or other trace evidence at the scenes of crimes I did not commit. I have also been fortunate enough to not have a bunch of guys who look like me running around committing crimes.

    I got pulled over for suspicion of illegal drugs. I was 19 years old, and white.

    The reason the cops don't **** with me, is because I don't do things to cause the cops to **** with me.

    Blacks who are ****ing up and look like they're ****ing up get ****ed with by the cops. Unfortunately, blacks **** up, alot and that is a fact.

    Oh, that'll get you pulled over in a heart beat. You, "I'm looking for a rock", written all over you.
