How do you believe the scandal at the state drug lab will impact communities of color?
|People in the community already have little or no faith in the police or the law in general. And with this scandal, some will say their doubts are proven.
|History repeats itself. I think some of the people currently in prison who were rightfully convicted are now back at square one, and it would be a shame for them to come back to the community and destroy what has been cleaned up.
|I think some criminals that cops were trying to put away for years just got their meal ticket, but who knows if they’ll stay clean or not.
| My concern is the fairness of the process and whether we see what cases are fairly re-assessed.
|I think it will force the authorities to revisit some cases, which could bring justice to a lot of black and brown people.
| I think it’ll make it harder for people to trust us.
