WA Gov. panders to NAACP by suspending death penalty for three black men who brutally murdered white women.
WA Governor Jay Inslee has unilaterally suspended the death penalty sentence of all nine Washington State death row inmates. Four of the monsters on death row killed women in brutal hate crime murders. Three of the victims were white and one was Asian.
Jay Inslee claims that the application of the death penalty is not applied equally. This means that he thinks too many black people are on death row. The main group that wanted the death sentences suspended was the NAACP. The WA NAACP claims that the death penalty proves that the justice system is “racist.”
NAACP leaders were ecstatic when the announcement was made.
Gov. Jay Inslee claims that he spent months consulting with the families of the victims first. This appears to be a bold faced lie. The family of Geneine Harshfield (see below) says that the Governor never contacted them.
