Wesley Baker begins to run out of time

As the hours and minutes tick away until the scheduled execution of Wesley Baker, here's something for his race-baiting supporters to consider:

The main reason you see a disproportion of death cases against black men convicted of murdering whites is that Patricia Jessamy, the black State's Attorney in majority-black Baltimore City refuses to bring capital cases. It wouldn't take more than a few death cases in Baltimore City to end any disparity. And perhaps, just perhaps, one might say that Jessamy's refusal to bring capital cases devalues black murder victims.
