In Los Angeles, only people of color are sentenced to death (The Guardian)

Recommended Posts

The county’s prosecutor has won death sentences for 22 defendants, none of them white, report shows

In the last five years, LA produced more death sentences per capita than any large county in Texas, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Utah or Washington – and sent more people to death row than the states of Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Virginia combined.


For the record, the LA County DA is African-American.

Good thing California has de facto abolished the death penalty with over a decade now of no executions despite plenty of people on death row. Now they just need to officially do so.
