    While Black defendants may receive some advantage at earlier stages of case processing, they are disadvantaged at sentencing. This disadvantage is greatest when they are convicted of felony person and property offenses, and it occurs following both negotiated and open pleas.

    The intro reads like it’s a PBS documentary special.

    This report was made possible due to the generous support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Philanthropies.

        Nope I don’t see white people robbing their neighbors houses
        Or selling dope on street corners or stealing cars or shooting people.
        Clean your hood up. That will save millions of our dollars supporting your criminality.
        Is it racist. Take a real look

          It’s a family reunion.
          Dad uncle cousin nephew and son.
          It’s a systemic evolution of life.
          Racists no
          Ignorance yes
          That’s how they raised no big deal
          Herd them like cattle
          Feed them like cattle

        My JURY pool had no Black men….Is that the Jury pool?
        According to my JURY ….the Defendant has to prove his innocence and JUDGE ODOM agreed with them.
        ODOM claimed the Judges are too white and used the BLM movement to secure his position on the Bench. Odom is clearly a self serving RACIST Judge

    All the so called good stuff about less filed or dropped cases are misnomers—-it’s merely proof of blacks being harassed and arrested for nonsense to begin with.

    Let’s talk about:
    black crime
    black carjackings
    black armed robberies
    black gun violence
    black unwed mothers
    black high school drop out rates

      Ok. Systemically target and lock up Whites in the same way Blacks are for a generation or two. Underfund the White schools too. Every parent and child overwhelmed for a decade or two with correspondingly curtailed educational and employment opportunities. Let’s talk then.

        Let’s do that when the whites destroy their own neighborhoods, prey on each other and populate like cats and have no parental control
        Then we can do that.
        Can’t lead a horse to water.
        Change the inner culture or circle it off and don’t let them exit to do their crime in other neighborhoods.
        Ie the beach at night, ie other areas ie Miami Beach
        Gun shots fired. I wish the news would report the truth but they won’t because it would kill tourism.

          Show a black family that has done what they did. And it won’t be black privilege.
          And show where they live I’m sure it’s not in the hood.
          Every black successful person leaves the hood n never looks back.
          Where does Obama live Martha Vineyards
          Far cry from Chicago.

        Nice try, but public school funding is colorblind, beyatch! Po white folk in badly funded schools get to make the SAME choices too:

        “Hmm, stay in school, be productive, get a job, be there fo ma needs — or go do some crimes??”

        Police arrest WHOEVER BE MAKING CRIME!
        Sure there are rogue cops, but overall the cops respond to reports of crime – they arrest the person’s doing the crime!

        But It’s easier to just find blame elsewhere v. just accepting EVEN PO WHITE FOLKS have crappy schools and getting a job.

    As long as the pervading paradigm is a bunch of young attorneys ignoring ethical considerations and instead trying to make a name for themselves with the win meaning everything, you will continue to have disproportionate racial prosecutions wrongfully being applied for the sole sake of satisfying the political aspirations of those who have convinced themselves they are carrying the torch of righteousness alas to fulfill their own ambition.
    I must say that we don’t have many fine examples leading the way to correct this ego driven agenda within the State Attorney’s Office. Just strict political adherents of the wrong paradigm for the sake of advancement.

      Did you Not read the report? Pryor is now filing more cases against whites then blacks. So he dumps cases against blacks prosecutes more whites and he looks like a hero….. for now.

        From someone that’s been to prison and told by assistant warden you are here because your white. I met many white inmates that if they were black would have not been sentenced to prison. The Hispanics suffer this disparity the most. They racial diversity in prison. However the diversity is the complete opposite of the outside world. The prison is run and operates as if it’s the hood. A CO asked me if I ever lived in the hood, response NO. She said welcome to the hood. The female co sell their bodies like prostitution
        How do you get a cell phone in a prison with the box n instructions
        I don’t think that fits in any body opening
        More like co lunch box
        Cigarettes $20/ pack $50/pack during holiday weekends. K2 how does that get in.
        Corrupt lol
        Who do you fear more the admin, co’s or the inmates.
        Need diversity

      So we have the military industrial complex and mass incarceration machine.
      One is out of our control

    The State made its fatal error by not adequately calling the Jury right on this one. They won with the support of overwhelming evidence. The defense was able to cast a wider net by making Cruz appear as though he was a victim of both child, drug and mental abuse and was able to capture at least one juror to change what everyone thought would be the eventual outcome of the imposition of the Death Penalty.
    Everyone including the Judge in this case was just really pissed because they had called it so wrong, not unlike most of the media and political establishment after Trump was elected. The reaction is consequently and consistently almost always bad.
    People can’t stand it when their wrong. Add that to the fact that Liz Scherer lacks any experience, maturity or judicial demeanor and you have a clown show. All and all, it’s not unexpected with the participants involved.

      Did Mike have a jury consultant or did his arrogance preclude the most basic necessary ingredient in a case of this nature given the previous life verdicts for other situations like this?

        No notch in my belt on this one. I can disappear with a whimper now. So disappear. You’ve done enough damage over the years.

    Andrew Pollack wrote a great book. He saw this debacle coming and he left the State. I have not seen a comment from him about this fiasco. A real man, parent who had no false allusions of this prosecution team. He probably doesn’t blame the defense team because they had a job to do. But, I’m sure he blames the system, the Judge and the prosecution team.
    Andrew Pollack has called this tragedy out from day one.
    QUESTION WHERE IS NIKOLAS CRUZ?
    Public Request? Why are they protecting this POS?

    I have had many cases where the client will turn down excellent plea offers for instance like turning down probation when there is a mandatory minimum of 15 yrs prison facing them if found guilty as charged. Many people end up in jail because stupid decisions and pride.

      BS. The client knows more. The problem in Broward is that if don’t accept the plea offer the judge (ex prosecutor) sentences you to maximum. Lesson learned. Don’t exercise your right to a trial.

        The real problem in Broward is prosecutors along with those who got on the bench, lie, cheat and deceive their way to convictions because they are not held accountable to either the Bar Rules of honesty or the Judicial Canons by those complicit judges who allow it to poison theprocess, the way shitz trained them. One obtained, then they lie by act and omission to even the appellate issues raised, so the merits are never addressed.

      If your client doesn’t follow your advice isn’t that grounds for removal of representation
      You should have removed your representation.
      But just push it through the system.

    Instead of Satz trying to make the CRUZ case his high profile final exit swan song and the responsibility falling to a couple of his old dog cronies so they could reap the notoriety, it should have gone to a fresh prosecutor with a fresh approach as opposed to the same old Satz Shats which obviously wasn’t enough to convince a jury.

    Face it: The old hams just couldn’t pull it off. They should have stayed home in bed for all the good they did the families of the victims and the citizens of Broward.

    It’s a slam dunk I got the judge in my pocket I got the defense team fing everything up. The worse it’s years of appeals but Cruz will be on death row. No sorry Mikey it didn’t work that way.
    Where is Nikolas Cruz? Is he in FDOC custody?
    What a fiasco!!!!!!! Sorry parents and loved ones! That’s Broward Courthouse Justice.
