WHITE MAN'S JUSTICE, BLACK MAN'S HELL !!!
Blind Justice? Black Man Sentenced to 50 Years for Stealing Ribs
May 31, 2013.
Willie Smith Ward of Waco, TX was sentenced to 50 years for tucking a rack of ribs under his shirt inside of a local grocery store in September 2011. The jurors in Waco’s 19th State District Court were less than impressed with 43-year-old Ward’s previous five felony and four misdemeanor convictions and recommended that Ward be sentenced to 50 years in prison as a habitual criminal.
Jurors took two minutes on Wednesday to convict Ward on robbery charges and about an hour to decide his punishment, according to a local news website. His conviction for stealing the $35 ribs was considered a robbery after he threatened a store employee who followed him out to the parking lot and interrogated him about the bulge in his shirt. The employee testified that he asked Ward what was under the shirt and the slab of ribs fell to the ground. He asked Ward what else he was hiding and Ward said, “I got a knife.” The employee added that Ward further threatened him by stating: “If you don’t leave me alone, I’ll show you what I got.” At that point, Ward ran off.
“This verdict shows that the citizens of this county will not tolerate a continued disrespect and disregard for other people and their property,” said Assistant District Attorney J.R. Vicha, who prosecuted Ward with Chris Bullajian. “People who choose to do so will be dealt with seriously and appropriately.” Ward’s sentence and conviction comes just months after the U.S. Sentencing Commission released a report revealing that Black men received sentences that were a whopping 19.5 percent longer than white men found guilty for similar crimes between December 2007 and September 2011.
The mass incarceration of our Black men is evident, especially in racist states like Texas. We can not allow Ward’s punishment to go unchallenged.

Really Brothers & Sisters??? A "rack of ribs"??? I'll tell you, it never cease to amaze me about the babylonion justice that is dealt out to our people in this land of bullshit and hypocrisy! Then the white man in the story above proudly stated in that last statement, "We can not allow Ward's punishment to go unchallenged." This devil is diabolically wicked to the umpteenth degree.
50 damn years in the pen for some ribs. We see how the black man can't catch a break under this unjust just-us system. Catching cases for so-called crimes where the punishment doesn't even fit. Brothers, when you catch a case your woman suffers too. She has to hold down the family and the home if the two of you have a child(ren), and if you don't have a child(ren) together then she's just out here holding herself down ... and you!
The black family unit is destroyed when these brothers go to prison! And for Willie Smith Ward's family, one can only wonder what they are experiencing and dealing with. In looking at this man's mugshot photo, it looks like Willie Smith Ward got his ass beat by the pigs before he was "taken into custody". Do you smell police brutality? We do!
Bottom Line is This: Who gives a shit if this man stole a rack of ribs or if he stole a pound of ribeye steaks! 50 fucking years for a misjudgment like that is absolutely absurd! It really comes down to 50 years in prison for being hungry!
The Black Man and The Black Woman Never Needed Statistical Data To Tell Us This Judical System Is Racist & Fucked Up !!! We Know It !!!
This Is Just Another Example of White Man's Justice, Black Man's Hell !!!
