#Prisonworld View – When Has Justice Been Equal? It is Always Black & White

Mr. Clarke, who appeared in State Supreme Court in Manhattan for a hearing on Tuesday, was indicted on criminal charges, while Mr. Robert was not. They climbed on the same day and faced a grand jury on the same day. They say its a jury of your peers but in August, a grand jury voted to indict Mr. Clarke on three counts, the most serious of which was a misdemeanor charge of reckless endangerment, punishable by up to a year in prison. A different grand jury had voted in June to dismiss all criminal charges against Mr. Robert, leaving only a count of disorderly conduct, which is not a crime, but a violation akin to a parking ticket.The difference is obvious to many one climber is white and the other is black.
