Does Race Influence Death Penalty Decisions in CA?

TalkLeft: The statistical data may or may not constitute "evidence of abuse," but the numbers raise serious questions that shouldn't be so easily dismissed. And asking prosecutors to explain their decisions and to adopt uniform policies is simply a way of seeking accountability in a decision-making process that relies on unaccountable discretion. Is that too much to ask when the decisions involve life and death?

I don't think so.
