-I choose this piece because it has to do with the affects of race on the conviction of a defendant.
-I knew that there was racial misbalance in convictions, and I wondered where exactly that misbalance came from.
Want (to Learn):
-I want to learn whether or not the inequality in the justice system stems from police prejudices or prejudices in court.
-Also, it would be interesting to find out how other races are affected.
-I learned that the jury plays a large part in the racial inequality in court. When the jury has at least one black person, the conviction rates go from 66% for white people and 81% for black people to 73% for white people and 71% for black people.
-It is outrageous that something that is purely fate, like who gets chosen for jury duty, has a such a large (and negative) impact on racial equality.
jSThe Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to overhaul the way garbage is collected from tens of thousands of businesses and apartment complexes in what supporters described as an ambitious bid to put Los Angeles at the forefront of reducing landfill waste nationwide.
Leon Gilligan-Steinberg's insight:
-The City of LA just voted in order to improve the systems in place that manage their trash-collection.
-Apparently, there will be less traffic from the garbage trucks, which would lead to less pollution. Apparently, this will move "the city to get away from landfills to show the world that the second largest city in the country is doing its best to recycle and to improve the air quality..."
-An official said "The environmental benefits are subterfuge for an effort to organize an industry that the unions couldn't organize themselves"
-First of all, the system only treats big apartments and companies.
-The plan does not specify a specific waste for relocation, however the trash will probably be relocated to an area of lower socio-economic status.
-This has pitted environmental justice activists against union workers.
