    It would appear that statistically if you’re black and you kill a white person, you’re more likely to get the death penalty. Not that this is groundbreaking, just sad.

    Disclosure: I was a Scout that sold popped corn and the like. That said, it still seems like a really bad idea to steal from a group that will 100% know you’re stealing from them, AND make you look really bad in front of a potential jury.
