L.A.’s white racist DA

From The Guardian:

In Los Angeles, only people of color are sentenced to death

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

Sam Levin

Tue 18 Jun 2019

Los Angeles has sentenced more people to death than any other county in the US, and only people of color have received the death penalty under the region’s current prosecutor, a new report shows.

LA county’s district attorney, Jackie Lacey, has won death sentences for a total of 22 defendants, all people of color, and eight of them were represented by lawyers with serious misconduct charges prior or after their cases, according to a new analysis by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

The last execution in California was on January 17, 2006.

Lacey’s office has also continued to pursue death penalty trials this year despite the fact that California’s governor, Gavin Newsom, issued a moratorium on capital punishment, with an executive order officially halting executions in the state.

In addition to severe racial disparities and ethical concerns around legal representation, LA’s system is costing taxpayers millions of dollars in pursuit of a punishment the region’s voters and California leaders have rejected, activists said. Some key findings:

In California, 222 people currently sentenced to death are from LA county, representing 31% of all death sentences in the state. (The LA population is only 25% of the statewide figure.)

There’s proof of anti-Los Angelesism prejudice!

LA is one of only three counties in the country to have more than 10 death sentences from 2014 to 2018.

LA County has 10 million people, about twice the population the second biggest county, Cook in Illinois.

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.
Last year, out of 3,100 counties nationwide, LA was one of only four to have more than one death sentence.

Under Lacey’s tenure, which began in 2012, zero white defendants have been sentenced to death, and her capital punishment sentences disproportionately targeted cases involving white victims. Although 12% of homicide victims in LA county are white, 36% of Lacey’s death penalty wins involved white victims.

Of the 22 defendants sentenced under Lacey, 13 were Latinx, eight were black and one was Asian.

“This should be profoundly troubling to all of us,” Cassy Stubbs, director of the ACLU Capital Punishment Project, told the Guardian. “Los Angeles is really in a class of its own … It is just such an enormous producer of death sentences in a way that really does not make sense for where we are today.” …

In her statement this week, Lacey noted that California voters had not abolished the death penalty, saying: “I will follow the law as prescribed by the citizens of California – whether that is seeking the death penalty for the most heinous crimes or, with the abolition of the death penalty, life without parole.”

The district attorney’s office has “extensive review processes” in place to decide whether to pursue the death penalty and makes recommendations “based on the facts without regard to the race of a defendant or a victim”, Lacey said. Her office sought the death penalty in less than 3% of all eligible cases last year, she said.

Back in 2010, I read through most of the 2,700 homicides committed in Los Angeles County in 2007-2009, as aggregated by reporter Jill Leovy in the Los Angeles Times’ Homicide Blog.

    California is one of 11 states that have the death penalty but haven’t used it in more than a decade

    BY JOHN GRAMLICH

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom this week announced a moratorium on executions in his state, a move that will affect 737 inmates on the largest death row in the country. The decision marks a significant change in policy, but not in practice: California is one of 11 states that have capital punishment on the books but have not carried out an execution in more than a decade. The federal government’s death row has also grown substantially since the last federal execution. There are currently 62 federal inmates sentenced to death, up from 26 in January 2003 (just before the federal government’s most recent execution).

    The increases in the number of people on death row in California and at the federal level run counter to the national trend. Nationwide, the number of inmates on death row fell 26% between 2000 and 2018, from 3,682 to 2,721, according to the NAACP’s figures.

    A variety of factors explain this decrease. For one thing, 892 executions were carried out between 2000 and 2018, including 359 in Texas alone, according to a database compiled by the Death Penalty Information Center. Many other death row prisoners have died of other causes. Another 81 were removed from death row between 2000 and 2018 because they were exonerated, whether by acquittal, dropped charges or pardons. And the number of new defendants sentenced to death has declined sharply, from 223 in 2000 to just 42 last year.

    Legal and political factors have played a prominent role in several of the states that have the death penalty but have not carried out an execution for 10 years or more. In California, courts struck down the state’s lethal injection protocol in 2006, and the state did not propose a replacement method until years later. In 2016, California voters approved a ballot initiative intended to speed up the death penalty process, but Newsom said this week that no executions will occur in the state while he remains governor.

    California is not the only state whose governor has declared a moratorium on executions even as capital punishment remains on the books. The governors of Oregon and Pennsylvania, for example, have also suspended executions in their states.

    Nationwide support for the death penalty ticked up in 2018, according to a Pew Research Center survey. A narrow majority of U.S. adults (54%) said they support the death penalty for those convicted of murder, compared with 39% who opposed it. But support for capital punishment remains much lower than in the 1990s or throughout much of the 2000s.

    The Ultra Woke will not let up. Whitey must pay, one way or another. Never mind the reason so few Whites are sentenced to death in LA County is that few can afford to live there. And the prosecutor in question is well, by appearances, Black.

    The Woke must fight (their caste/dynastic) enemies, average working/middle class Whites. It will soon be legal for Blacks to kill any White, just like the Purge movies come to life.

    Really, Hollywood is a plague upon society as every stupid idea/meme they come up with ends up as law sooner or later.

    Suppose the Purge does come to life? Who benefits? The ultra Woke like Zuck with his 6,000 bodyguards. And the like. Joe Average has to take it in the neck, fighting back is of course illegal and will be punished to the full extent of the law.

  5. Executions Under the Federal Death Penalty
    from: deathpenaltyinfo.org

    Three people have been executed since the reinstatement of the federal death penalty in 1988.

    Timothy McVeigh, White male, executed on June 11, 2001. McVeigh was convicted and sentenced to death in June 1997, for the bombing of an Oklahoma City federal building in 1995, in which 168 people were killed. McVeigh waived his collateral appeals, and the Government set McVeigh’s execution on May 16, 2001. McVeigh was granted a 30-day stay of execution by Attorney General John Ashcroft after it was discovered that the FBI had failed to disclose more than 3,000 pages of document to McVeigh’s defense team. McVeigh’s co-defendant, Terry Nichols, was capitally prosecuted by the federal government in a separate trial. In December 1997, he was convicted by the jury and sentenced to life without parole. Nichols was later capitally tried in Oklahoma state court for the murders of the 161 non-federal employees in Oklahoma City. In May 2004, he was convicted, and the jury deadlocked and he was sentenced to life in prison without parole. (Terry Nichols Fast Facts, CNN Library; Oklahoma City Bombing Fast Facts, CNN Library.)

    Juan Raul Garza, Latino male, executed on June 19, 2001. Garza, a marijuana distributor, was convicted and sentenced to death in August 1993, in Texas for the murders of three other drug traffickers. Garza was denied review by the U.S. Supreme Court in late 1999 and was facing an execution date of August 5, 2000. The date was postponed until the Justice Department finished drafting guidelines for federal death row inmates seeking presidential clemency, which were issued in early August. Garza was offered the opportunity to apply for clemency under the new guidelines and a new execution date of Dec. 12, 2000 was set. In December 2000, President Clinton again delayed Garza’s execution for at least six months to allow further study of the fairness of the federal death penalty. (In Death, Garza Seeks Forgiveness, ABC News, June 19, 2001.)

    Louis Jones, Black male, executed on March 18, 2003.Jones was sentenced to death in November 1995 in Texas for the kidnap/murder of a young white female soldier. The United States Supreme Court granted review of the case and heard arguments on February 22, 1999. The Supreme Court affirmed the conviction on June 21, 1999. Jones, a decorated Gulf War veteran who had no prior criminal record, claimed that his exposure to nerve gas in Iraq and post-traumatic stress from his combat tours contributed to his murder of Pvt. Tracie Joy McBride in Texas. President George W. Bush refused Jones’ clemency request. (Associated Press, U.S. Executes Gulf War Veteran Who Raped and Killed a Soldier, NY Times, March 19, 2003.)

  6. In addition to your pointing out that these “journalists” of today don’t understand “per capita” only when they don’t want to understand “per capita”, there is this gem of an analysis:

    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.

    That is just complete cherry-picking here. It’s cherry picking with more degrees-of-freedom than you normally see, so I’ll give him that . There is probably some good statistics theory that could help one pick out groups of states or counties to prove about any damn thing one wanted to prove.

    The important thing here is, can Los Angeles spare enough electrical energy to fry these 22, or is it all spoken for by the movie studios and tanning salons?

    While U.S. Census Bureau data shows the number of truckers at an all-time high, industry experts contend a driver shortage remains an issue.

  22. Lack of diversity in genomic research hinders precision medicine for nonwhite Americans

    A new study uncovers 65 genetic variants found in understudied minority populations that could lead to improved precision medicine for those groups.

    By University Communications , Wednesday, June 19th, 2019

    The vast majority of genomic data scientists have collected focuses on people of European descent, overlooking minority populations. As genetic-based precision medicine grows, this data gap means minorities may lack access to medical care that could reduce growing chronic disease disparities among racial and ethnic groups.

    Precision medicine is an approach that allows doctors to select treatments that are most likely to be effective in protecting a patient’s health or treating their disease, based on an understanding of the patient’s individual genes, environment, and lifestyle. This approach allows doctors and researchers to better predict which treatments and prevention strategies will work for which people, but it can’t be effectively used without access to accurate information for that individual or group.

    A team of researchers from institutions across the country, including the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, analyzed phenotypes of nearly 50,000 non-European individuals, identifying 65 new associations and replicating 1,400 associations between genes and diseases, highlighting the need for equitable inclusion of diverse populations in genetic research.

    Kari North, a professor in the epidemiology department at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, and Misa Graff, assistant professor in the school’s epidemiology department, are co-authors on the paper “Genetic Diversity Improves Our Understanding of Complex Trait Architecture,” which was published on June 19 in Nature. North was the senior co-leader and oversaw the research and Graff was a co-junior lead.

    “This is an extremely important public health issue,” said Graff. “We need to work hard to make sure that the populations most burdened by disease are not overlooked by genomic studies, because we cannot afford for disease disparities to get worse. Understanding the genes in these populations is key to targeting prevention and designing drugs that can better target their illnesses and improve quality of life.”

    Overall, minority populations are disproportionately affected by chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes and cancer. According to statistics from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health, African Americans are 80% more likely than non-Hispanic white adults to have been diagnosed with diabetes and 30% more likely to die from heart disease.

    Is that “The Flight 93 Election”, in the Claremont Magazine?

    https://www.claremont.org/crb/basicpage/the-flight-93-election/

    “Third and most important, the ceaseless importation of Third World foreigners with no tradition of, taste for, or experience in liberty means that the electorate grows more left, more Democratic, less Republican, less republican, and less traditionally American with every cycle. As does, of course, the U.S. population, which only serves to reinforce the two other causes outlined above. This is the core reason why the Left, the Democrats, and the bipartisan junta (categories distinct but very much overlapping) think they are on the cusp of a permanent victory that will forever obviate the need to pretend to respect democratic and constitutional niceties. Because they are.

    It’s also why they treat open borders as the “absolute value,” the one “principle” that—when their “principles” collide—they prioritize above all the others. If that fact is insufficiently clear, consider this. Trump is the most liberal Republican nominee since Thomas Dewey. He departs from conservative orthodoxy in so many ways that National Review still hasn’t stopped counting. But let’s stick to just the core issues animating his campaign. On trade, globalization, and war, Trump is to the left (conventionally understood) not only of his own party, but of his Democratic opponent. And yet the Left and the junta are at one with the house-broken conservatives in their determination—desperation—not merely to defeat Trump but to destroy him. What gives?

    Oh, right—there’s that other issue. The sacredness of mass immigration is the mystic chord that unites America’s ruling and intellectual classes.

    Another document detailing the minutes of a meeting held in the MoD on May 8, 2014, shows Air Vice-Marshal Andrew Vallance reported that the MoD’s relationship with the Guardian had “continued to strengthen” with Johnson on board. This strengthening was due to “regular dialogues” being held with Guardian journalists, the document says.

    Johnson was seemingly rewarded for his compliance two years later when he was awarded an interview with MI5 head Andrew Parker, the first ever newspaper interview given by a serving spy chief.

  55. Your reference to 2700 homicides also brought up an article by Jill Leovy and Doug Smith entitled “Getting away with murder in South LAs killing zone,” dated January 10, 2004. Incredible is the only way to describe the amount of unsolved murders in LA, and. this was back in 2004. This story relates the reasons why so many murders are unsolved, fear of retaliation a major factor. In previous posts I have mentioned my step-son was one of the victims, unsolved of course.

    The total fertility rate for black women is 2.1 children per woman per lifetime. In recent years, about 3.7% of the youth born have been classified as multi-racial by the Census. The share of multi-racial people who report black ancestry is just north of 40%. So, roughly 1.6% of the children born in this country are multi-racial with black ancestry. Even if all of them featured black sires, it’s not going to increase the live births attributable to black men by more than about 10% or so.

    The great Dr. Francis never married, ended his days earning small sums contributing to Chronicles and editing a newsletter issued by the residue of the white Citizens’ Councils, and took terrible care of himself, dying at age 57.

    I thought it was strange that so many witnesses to the execution described what they saw in ghastly detail, broadcast. There were a dozen or more. And it was the same thing over and over again of course: He isn’t just dead, he’s really, really dead. I wondered if the guvamint was trying to talk us into something.

    Not implying that the witnesses weren’t sincere. But I’ve never heard anything like it before or since.

    Yes.

    I am pretty much agnostic on the death penalty, because to me life in prison would be a fate worse than death, but it seems to me that executions ought to be held in public, or at least put on Youtube, so that we can see what our government is doing.

    In Florida we have something called the Government in the Sunshine Law, a witty play on words intended to promote the ultraviolet-rich state climate, which states that all government meetings even at the highest and lowest levels must be held in public, but in reality the public gallery at executions, thought it does exist, is minimized to a few seats.

    We had our latest execution here in Florida on May 23rd of this year, when the execution ceremony was performed on one Bobby Joe Long, a mass rapist and murderer. Long was arrested in 1984 and eventually given his lethal injection 35 years later, so the state cunningly gave his a lifetime in prison PLUS execution when he became old enough to qualify for the procedure on Medicare.

    Long was born with an extra X chromosome, causing him to grow breasts during puberty, for which he was teased. Had he been born at a later time, he might have opted for womanhood, had himself castrated, and avoided all the nastiness.

    The peanut gallery.

    Why would the government not execute him if he was sentenced to death?

    The total fertility rate for black women is 2.1 children per woman per lifetime.

    The age at which they have children makes a big difference. 66% of black childbirths are born to mothers under age 30, vs 48% of white and 41% of Asian. Blacks are getting grandchildren at the same time many whites of the same age are bearing children.

    The median age at the birth of the first child for black women is 23, v. 26 for white women. Really isn’t that different.

  70. The median age at the birth of the first child for black women is 23, v. 26 for white women. Really isn’t that different.

    The median age for both is astonishingly old by historical standards. Optimal fertility starts at around 20 and ages 20-24 have the lowest probability of miscarriage. Fertility decreases rapidly after 30.

    In most African countries and India the median age is between 18 and 20. However in most of the developed countries the mean age is even higher than in the US with

    Best estimate is that most women are physically at their most attractive from about 18-23, which probably corresponds to biological fitness to reproduce. After that everything goes downhill all the way with Australia leading the way at 30.1. New Zealand is at 27.7. (A psychiatrist friend of mine who spent a year there who was a single man said that New Zealand must have the ugliest women per capita in the world, but whether there is a connection between attractiveness and fertility is moot.)

    In non-occidental cultures, perhaps. Not in occidental society. See Angus Maddison on this issue.

    LAs DA Lacey is a political hack, she has parked the LA County Assessor John R Noguez public corruption trial for SEVEN YEARS! since day 1 of her DA term in 2012.

    https://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-john-noguez-20160721-snap-story.html

    A Noguez prosecution would lead to half the CA legislature being prosecuted for bribery, Noguez channeled millions of dollars in Assessor bribes to dozens of Democrat campaigns for years.

    He took in so much cash as Assessor he started his own Political Action Committee.

    https://www.loscerritosnews.net/2012/11/23/obscure-elect-noguez-committee-poured-thousands-into-campaign-coffers/

    Parking a public corruption case indefinitely requires CA DOJ, FBI and USDOJ collusion.

    Meanwhile my state DOT has proposed adding GPS devices to cars (“voluntarily,” of course) because the increase in hybrid and electric vehicles is cutting into gas tax revenues. Our Republican state legislature seemed to be orgasmically supportive of the idea.

    How does the GPS make up the shortfall? You have to pay (state) to have it fitted? Sorry if I’ve misunderstood.
