Ear Hustle 411 came across yet another disturbing story where the laws seem to always be twisted when it comes to people of color. Since when did county laws supersede state laws?
How is it that one person in a state can be charged for a crime and yet another person in the same state that does the exact same crime is given a free pass? It makes one wonder are the laws fair or is it only fair when you’re not a minority?
See what is reported by Atlanta Star:
On the Aug. 11 edition of HLN’s “Dr. Drew Live,” panelist discuss the racial elements in two Mississippi cases involving hot-car deaths of small children.
In the first case, a white mother, Amy Bryant, forgot to drop off her 2-year-old off at daycare.
The Madison County, Mississippi woman discovered her child dead in her car at the end of her workday after receiving a call from the daycare.
Bryant was not charged by a Madison County grand jury. In the second case, a Black father, Joshua Blunt, forgot to drop of his 8-month-old daughter before work.
In the clip above, commentator Yodit Tewolde appears to ignore the racial undertones of the case. Dr. Drew points out that there is indeed a racial element that needs to be discussed.
” I don’t doubt that this was an accident,” she starts off. “However, it is hard to make a distinguishment between these two cases when you are dealing with two counties. When you deal with two different counties, you deal with two different DAs.”
Dr. Drew says that even though that is the case, it should not be tolerated.
