The people of the State of California do enact as follows:So California Black criminals are going to get light sentences because some other Black was denied the right to vote in Alabama a century ago?
SECTION 1. Section 17.3 is added to the Penal Code, to read:
17.3. (a) It is the intent of the Legislature to rectify the racial bias that has historically permeated our criminal justice system as documented by the California Task Force to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans.
(b) Whenever the court has discretion to determine the appropriate sentence according to relevant statutes and the sentencing rules of the Judicial Council, the court presiding over a criminal matter shall consider the disparate impact on historically disenfranchised and system-impacted populations.
That California Task Force is a joke, and did not show any Blacks were harmed.
