ARE YOU A RACIST?

Attention Broward ASA’s:

CBS – Race Matters: A Look Inside Broward Pot Arrests

(T)he overwhelming majority of those arrested were black. Since 2010, 69 percent of the people arrested in Broward County were black … CBS4 News also reviewed how the cases were handled in court and we found that Broward had a conviction rate seven times higher than Dade. And 80 percent of the people convicted in Broward for misdemeanor pot possession were black.

“When you look at these numbers if they don’t make you sick then you aren’t paying attention,” said Howard Finkelstein, the Broward County Public Defender. “You know what these stats show you? There is no war on drugs. There is a war on poor black people. That’s exactly what this shows.”

The racial disparities are particularly troubling because studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Health have shown blacks and whites use marijuana at the (same) rate. If anything, the surveys have shown, young white adults between the ages of 18 and 25 actually use marijuana at a higher rate than their black counterparts. Yet it is young blacks that make up many of the arrests …

“I became interested in politics when I was about 11, 12, 13 years old, during the civil rights movement,” (Franken) said.” We were watching them sic dogs or club demonstrators. My dad would go, ‘No Jew can be for that, no Jew can be for that.’ That was probably when it crystallized to me how important public affairs are.”

    Nobody is saying the voting public isn’t a bunch of garbage picking racists. Duh. The issue has always been Satzie refusing to put his foot down. Justice over votes? Not around here.

    Try a different platform, preferably one that will work, Howie. The ones u come up just don’t work as sound bites anymore. Everybody’s caught on a long time ago.

    Maybe if they weren’t wandering around school zones with joints hanging out of their mouths lookin to score, things could be different in Broward. Satz is restrained in calling Finkelstein’s remarks utter nonsense. They’re just MORE UTTER NONSENSE coming from the same source. He sounds like a broken record whenever he tries to play the race card. More like PUBLIC PRETENDER at this stage.

    I don’t see the problem here. Too bad Howard didn’t let his client speak on air. His perspective would have been valuable.

    Finkelstein is out of touch. He should move to radio talk show next. Help me Howie is sounding pretty stale about now. He needs some new material.

    Still trying to use the race card? Finkelstein is grasping at straws now and he’s pulled the short end of the stick this time. Stick to something he knows about: mental health.

    Always chasing the media for a 30 second spot can be very fatiguing … Looks like Finkelstein should consider another subject or line of work. This one is harped out.

    If it squawks like a duck, it’s usually Howard Finkelstein. Especially if civil violations have already been implemented in Dade. This guy will apparently squawk about anything just to hear himself squawk !

      Black leadership bears as much responsibility for the state of affairs in Broward as any other stakeholder. Black leadership Broward is an oxymoron. Satz will win as often as he wants with Black leadership fawning for him and Prince Morton. Got a solution? Offer it. Otherwise stop whining and accept the beast is made up of many heads, and all of them greedy.

    Franken is out of touch. These punks today are raised on video games and genetically modified mind control foods. They do as they’re told and save the questions for the guy at Brandsmart when the next generation of bigger tv sets comes out. Putty in the hoove hands of the Hogs running the show. If he thinks anyone cares about justice he should drive his Tesla around Pompano and get a grip on reality. The 60’s are long gone, the 70’s Me Generation became the Black Lives Don’t Matter just like it was before and evermore.

    Maybe Jar McLawrence can weigh in on whether it’s acceptable for the police to stop black people when they are part of the “greedy coons” that sold him out. Since McLawrence views the black community in shades of grey, is it ever OK for the police to take the same view? Prof. McLawrence, would you grace us with your learned opinion on this issue? Do tell….

    Decriminalization is bad for everyone. Where’s BACDL to put a stop to this? How can a highly educated and respected bunch of bottom feeding lawyers earn a living off the Negro if this is to continue?

    Smelly, dirty, ugly Black Haitians have ruined any place in my native Florida they have settled or work. They should all be deported, the only thing they have ever brought to America is AIDS because Haitian soldiers for Castro in Anglo had sex with monkeys in the 1970s. The Africans here in Europe smell up everywhere they go. REID can’t get a decent job as a journalist so she creates this scumbag blogg

    Finkelstein is sounding more like a spaced-out idiot every time he opens his mouth. Not that he can do anything about it anyway. He’s just as helpless as the poor black people he pretends to defend, and has just about the same success rate. Never seems to tire of his own contrived rhetoric. Nobody knows or cares about what he has to say, especially when it carries no weight other than to provide a soapbox for his self serving, as Satz puts it, “nonsense”. I just call it so much CRAP.

    Don’t worry. BACDL with its brilliant leadership is at the forefront of this racial disparity! And they’re just about as effective as Finkelstein when it comes to doing much but getting re-elected. Just another group of puffballs looking for self aggrandizement. Satz wears the pants in this game and doesn’t give even so much as lip service to these tough talking do nothings. A lot a hot air with no substance.

    Mike has more known wrongful convictions on serious cases than almost anyone and it doesn’t seem to bother him. By comparison anyone thinking he would care about this issue needs a competency evaluation. Mike said this is nonsense, and I think he means it.

    I’m not a racist but I do understand the importance of stripping poor Black people of their ability to drive a car legally so they lose their jobs, drift deeper into poverty and eventually reoffend and set an example of hopelessness for future generations.

    I’m not a racist but I do understand selling and using drugs is only for wealthy people and I am ok with that because people who look and act differently than me and my parents scare me enough already without having to worry if they’re hopped up on goofybirds.

        If Mc D’s have to pay their employees $15.00 per hour none of us will be able to afford to eat there. Also all the clerks in the court house can get a job there and make more then they do now.

      I really love watching the bone head’s sucking up to the black people during election time. I especially love seeing them running to all the black churches, as soon as election day is over they are never seen again. What idiots!!!

    Finkelstein’s attempt to play the race card again is getting real old. He must be running out of hot button items to attach himself too.

      He’s got nothing else to do, so what do you expect? The real underlying problems remain ignored and the rest of his agenda is aimed at getting attention. Typical stuff. This isn’t Ferguson but he’d like to think it is.

      It sure isn’t the same as when I moved here five years ago. Put them all behind bars black or white! It’s getting pretty scary if you ask me. I think Satz is doing a good job locking these jokers up and keeping them there for as long as he can.

    People leaving the PDs office in droves tells the real story. The quality of representation is the only thing that’s suffering. More like a mass exodus. The reasons are apparent to anybody.

    Using words like “war on black people” won’t get Finkelstein one more vote. The idea that African American lawbreakers in Broward should be treated any differently just because they represent 90 percent of the cases before our courts is an idiotic one. They break the law, they go to jail. I don’t need anymore cases, but it is what it is. It’s better than allowing them to sell pot to our kids on school grounds.

    Clean up the streets of Broward! Arrest every one of these drug selling offenders and keep them there. I don’t care whether they are black or white. This is not a black or white issue despite Finkelstein’s BS. Does anyone really fall for that guys’ line ! LOL
