Sacramento, CA Sentence Enhancements For Criminals In Possession Of Firearms Is Racist

From The Police Tribune:

Sacramento, CA – Imposing sentencing enhancements for criminals who are in possession of firearms at the time of their offenses is racist and the potential penalties currently in place need to be drastically reduced, according to a group of California Democratic lawmakers.

State lawmakers who backed the Anti-Racism Sentencing Reform Act claimed the current sentencing enhancement laws are racist because 89 percent of California inmates serving time on gun enhancement sentences are people of color, FOX News reported.

Offenders who are in possession of firearms during the commission of serious crimes such as attempted murder or robbery could face an additional 10 years in prison in addition to the underlying offense.
