9th Circuit Panel Strikes Down Rape Conviction, Citing Race Bias

 Linkname: 9th Circuit panel strikes down rape conviction, citing race bias - Sacramento News - Local and Breaking Sacramento News | Sacramento Bee

  Steven Frank Jackson was found guilty by a Superior Court jury of breaking
  into a 72-year-old white woman's apartment and repeatedly raping her and
  sexually assaulting her in a number of ways.
  Saliva found on her breast yielded a positive match of Jackson's DNA, and
  the victim identified Jackson at the trial as her attacker in the early
  hours of April 29, 2002.
  The jury pronounced him guilty of a multitude of sexual crimes and one count
  of burglary, and on Sept. 30, 2004, at age 39, Jackson was sentenced to a
  "three-strikes" prison term of 310 years to life. The verdict and sentence
  were affirmed by a state appellate court and the federal district court in
  Sacramento. The California Supreme Court declined review.
  But both were overturned last week by a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S.
  Circuit Court of Appeals.

This is affirmative action, reparations and Eric Holder/Obama's Justice.

If This was Tom Toolbag's mother, I wonder what he would say, then?
