Worldwide, there needs to be much more focus on equity and true justice throughout all legal systems. No person or people should be treated less fairly than any other... Hoping there will be huge strides on this in the future, even if it doesn't change massively in my lifetime. Very glad to see the changes away from apartheid in South Africa... however in the USA, the racism is less readily apparent but still very much there. I'm surprised by the number of (white) people who make comments that indicate they don't believe this is true...

This has been the norm in this country since prison became a big business and a way to help get rid of all black men not just young ones.

Black men are more than likely to have a mug shot before the age of sixteen, which is the start of the process.

(Try to get in college after that).

We all know how corrupt the judicial system is and I am with all people one hundred percent that wish to change this in our country and any other country this happens in.

When you black you dont have to commit one to be chosen as guilty. Alot of us are innocent and you can excuse yourself from posting anything else on this petition. It's obvious where you stand so why are you wasting our time?

Take your unhappy, miserable and have to make other people feel the same way self to someone elses petition. MANY BLESSINGS TO YOU. YOU OBVIOUSLY NEED IT :)

Some may diserve to go to jail because they have no remorse and might just be evil and bad to the bone,but to put some one with no criminal record in jail for 20 years or life when everything points to a horrible accident that's messed up when the white man in the White House shot some body they called it a believ a hunting accident let that had been one of us we would of got thrown under the jail

Our country don't need to be about race right now.. Our focus should be pointing fingers at the Government. They're the main reason why RACISM STARTED. We as PEOPLE who are ALL BROTHERS and SISTERS of any such should stick together as God said, but this isn't about religion either. Our purpose for this NON SENCE of a race outburst should be aiming at US GOVERNMENT. I agree on the argument. I REALLY DO, currpted like you all said.... again GOVERNMENT. no war shall be made unless its verse...

We all know someone who got smoked by the justice system. You can watch the ID Channel and see that minorities get stricter sentences than Caucasian offenders. It's about time that this is being brought up and I have to thank technology for bringing people together through this type of media outlet. Thank you Mr Reise for forwarding this cause.

The crime has got to stop.. It starts from the home/community. People are getting all of this time because the PEOPLE [in the communities] most of all, wants these people off the streets. They do not say it but they do [they called the police]. Once you get in the system, It is hell to get out of it. No job.. The streets one way or another won't let you go for one reason or another. The key is to get to the ROOT of the problem and that is the 'households/communities'.

I agree with you somewhat. The root is our education. We aren't taught the truth behind who we are as a black people. My siblings and I have gone through a lot and things could have been better for my brother but sadly he was never given a chance.

I on the other hand, went through tons more then what my brother has BUT I kept it bottled inside until I finally exploded and nearly let myself go. The point of this petition is that if someone of any other race was to commit this crime he/she...

I on the other hand, went through tons more then what my brother has BUT I kept it bottled inside until I finally exploded and nearly let myself go. The point of this petition is that if someone of any other race was to commit this crime he/she would not have gotten this much time. I've seen it.

I met a woman whose Godson killed 12 people and got 12 years. REALLY??? He went in years after my brother became incarcerated and will be home before my brother. We need to open our eyes and quit blaming each other just to support another race when they make the same mistake. It's ridiculous. Some of us are color blind! Plantation Psychosis. Study that. Peace be with you.

P.S. Not saying you are this way but schooling you on a thing or two from my neck of the woods.

Our black youth has always been a target for racist authority fiqures every since the begining of time from slavery to racial discrimination.. When will we get justice for our peoplee. I am tried of losing our brothers to this shady judicial system! White people get to take a walk while the blacks have to sit down, there is absolutely NO JUSTICE in that!

Correction. Not all banks in America. Most started in Europeon banks. Interesting that no one of my "Friends" commented on banks. Evil is done when Good Men do nothing.
