In 70% Black Baltimore, Elected Officials Oppose Mandatory One-Year Sentence for Illegal Gun Possession b/c it will "disproportionately impact black people"



If you've read The City that Bleeds: Race, History, and the Death of Baltimoreyou know black people in Baltimore carefully protect their city by using black criminality to keep out white people from ever being a demographic threat to run things again.

Now imagine this 70 percent black having black elected officials - representatives of the state - protecting black criminals from a legal system they've deemed not just racist, but replete with implicit bias. 

Oh, it's true. [Baltimore leaders propose mandatory sentence for illegal gun possession, Baltimore Sun, 7-14-17]:


Baltimore leaders on Friday proposed a mandatory one-year sentence for illegal gun possession within 100 yards of a school, park, church, public building or other public place of assembly within the city. 
The bill would prevent any part of the one-year sentence from being suspended, and preclude those with such convictions from receiving parole. 
Mayor Catherine Pugh said she’d like to do more to restrict guns, but “this is what we can do locally” without changing state law. 
Pugh acknowledged that there is a church or a school “on nearly every corner” in the city, and said “as it relates to this legislation, that’s a good thing.” 
Police Commissioner Kevin Davis praised the bill as a much-needed change to help the city address its soaring violence. The city is on pace to surpass 300 homicides for the third year in a row. Before 2015, that mark hadn’t been reached in Baltimore since the 1990s.
