Attempts to cloak herself in blackness, talks of reform and fighting for black people came later when it all blew up in her face.
She is not the reformist they want us to believe she is. She has not brought charges against or prosecuted one officer on her ‘suspect’ list. She has not prosecuted the officers who murdered Vonderrit Myers or Cary Ball Jr. And she pulled an Angela Corey on the cases her office did prosecute allowing Jason Stockley to walk as well as all the officers involved in the $5 million dollar overtime pay scandal. She is not leading the charge for bail reform or closing the workhouse. Decriminalizing weed while the city and state are ushering in the marijuana industrial complex is a nobrainer..
Given the same exact circumstances if Kim Gardner were white we wouldn’t even be having this conversation.
