Sure, I believe it’s selective persecution (yes, I chose the word deliberately).

But, if you’re a Black Male Teen in Georgia, I think you should think twice before you decide to have sex.

First, it was that young man, who was on his way to Vanderbilt, but wound up in jail for having consensual sex.

And now, it’s Genarlow Wilson, who is serving a 10 year sentence for consensual oral sex at age 17 with 15-year-old girl.

The judge has voided the sentence, but the District Attorney has filed an appeal, thus keeping this young man in jail. There’s so much wrong with this case, it’s ridiculous, but the bottom line is the same – young Black men, if you decide to play, you might be paying with the next YEAR of your life, since this law has since been amended.

Two words to remember: SELECTIVE PROSECUTION.

And, guess, who they choose to select to prosecute more often than not. That’s right: folks that look like Genarlow Wilson.

Just a friendly warning.
