Can We Just Make It Illegal to Arrest Blacks? Black State''''s Attorney of 70% Black Baltimore Excuses Away Black Crime, Compares Criminal Justice System to Slavery

为什么我们不干脆将逮捕黑人视为非法?黑人占70%的Baltimore市检察官为黑人犯罪辩护,竟将刑事司法制度比作奴隶制!



PK Note: Get a copy of The City that Bleeds: Race, History, and the Death of Baltimore. It makes the perfect Christmas gift!

现在我们有一个《流血城市》的翻版了:种族、历史以及Baltimore城之死,这真是一个完美的圣诞礼物!

In the current paradigm, the only tolerated answer for why so many black people are in jail (and why they are arrested at such a disproportionate than whites) is due to white supremacy, structural inequalities, and racism deeply imbedded in the criminal justice system.

在目前的模式下,为何有那么多黑人被关进了监狱(以及为什么黑人被逮捕的比例比白人要高)唯一能让人容忍的答案是:这是白人至上主义、结构性不平等以及深深植根于刑事司法系统中的种族主义造成的?

The simple, logical reason being blacks commit the vast amount of crime in America, and are thus imprisoned for their actions is verboten, an unforgivable sin by any who dares utter or write such blasphemy.

在美国,黑人犯下了大量的罪行,并因此被关进监狱,这是一个简单而合乎逻辑的理由,任何敢于说出或写下这种亵渎的话(将逮捕黑人类比为奴隶制)的人都是不可饶恕的罪行。



As some of the most influential stakeholders in that system, Mosby said prosecutors like her have an obligation to reduce disparities by providing opportunities for young people before they come into contact with the system, alternatives for returning felons who are too often sidelined economically because of their criminal records, and means for seeking redress for those wrongfully accused or convicted.

Mosby说,作为该系统中最具影响力的利益相关者、像她这样的检察官有义务在年轻人接触该系统之前为他们提供机会,为那些因犯罪记录而经常在经济上被边缘化的重刑犯提供重返社会的选择、以及为那些被错误指控或定罪的人寻求补救的机会。

Mosby cited efforts by her office to do all of the above, including her hosting of youth events, her decision to stop prosecuting marijuana possession in Baltimore, her successful push to vacate convictions that hinged on the word of corrupt police officers and her office’s Conviction Integrity Unit, which reviews past cases thrown into question by new evidence.

Mosby还指出了其办公室为完成上述所有工作所做的努力,包括主办了青年活动、决定停止在Baltimore地区起诉携带大麻的人员、成功地撤销了由于“腐败的警察”而被定罪的犯罪案件、让她的办公室变得廉洁而正直(其办公室负责审查由于新证据而受到质疑的以往案件)



So how long until we see a majority black city, with a black mayor and a black police chief, just end the charade and make it illegal to arrest blacks for crimes they commit?

那么,还要多久、我们是否马上能看到一个黑人占多数的城市、拥有一名黑人市长、一名黑人警察局长、什么时候结束这场做作的游戏?干脆将逮捕黑人犯罪视为非法不就好了?
