Deters and the Zimmerman Mind-Set

This Sister speaks truth to power. If you haven't read Michelle Alexander's book, The New Jim Crow:  Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness do so immediately if you care about, want to understand, and contribute to  the struggle. 

Alexander wrote this article in Time magazine titled The Zimmerman Mind-Set where she lays out cold hard facts like she does in her book. 

America might not care about black and brown young men, but they care about green dollars.  What's the cost to prosecute a murder anyway?  Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters once said that he wished that he could put young men of color  in a cage and let them shoot themselves, guess he wanted to eliminate the high coast of prosecution.  Did I mention that Deters pays hookers? I digress.
