A sign of (hopefully) things to come: Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick ordered to jail for violated terms of his bond

August 7, 2008

***Update-Friday, 8/8/08-Michigan’s attorney general says he’s bringing assault charges against Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick after the mayor had a physical confrontation with a detective trying to deliver a subpoena.

The mayor faces two counts of assaulting or obstructing a police officer in the furtherance of their duties. Each felony count brings up to 2 years in prison or a fine of $2,000.***

Kwame, Kwame, Kwame, can’t you see

Dirty text got you up in perjury……..

That’s just a little ditty I’m working on. I’m still trying to get the Biggie Smalls’ estate to let me sample “Hypnotize” and I’ll have a hit on my hands for sure.

Anyway, Detroit’s Mayoral Douchebag, Kwame Kilpatrick violated his bond and is on his way to jail.

WOOD TV

DETROIT (AP) — Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, charged with perjury and other felonies for his testimony in a civil trial, was ordered to jail Thursday because he violated his bond by taking a quick trip to Canada without notifying authorities.

Kilpatrick apologized and acknowledged that he made a mistake when he visited Windsor, Ontario, minutes away from Detroit, for city business last month. But 36th District Court Judge Ronald Giles was not moved, saying he needed to treat the mayor like any other defendant.

“What matters to me … is how the court overall is perceived and how if it was not Kwame Kilpatrick sitting in that seat, if it was John Six-Pack sitting in that seat, what would I do? And that answer is simple,” Giles said.

Lest you lose track, Kwame will also find out Friday morning if Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox will press charges against the “mayor” for assault on a detective that attempted to serve Kilpatrick a subpoena. Kwame’s attorney thinks an assault charge against his client is “a done deal.”

Detroit Houses Cheaper than Cars–UAW labels all houses as “scabs” and automatically demands a pay raise.

Cheap houses and unlicensed handguns at record levels in Detroit. Thanks to our friends at Students for a Free Economy (SFE) who not only provided the link, but also wrote the best headline. “Homeless and living in your car? Cheaper alternatives are here!”

Let’s hope that Jennifer Granholm and the state Dems can tax us out of this.

If only there was a solution for both of these problems…..
