Do they still have court TV?   I'd love to see Kwame's face when the case is presented.

Channel 4 in Detroit has actually created an iPhone app just for updates on Kwame's trial.  :P

No updates needed.  He and his dad will be exonerated of all charges and he'll go on to get reelected as mayor of Detroit.

What could be more crystal clear.

Wouldn't surprise me one bit!

Can't be comfortable to have the Feds nailin' left and right though.  I hope he is sweating, and not sleeping one bit.

Ew!  Of all things to say.   


Take it from someone who has rode the elevator on many (too many) summer days with the man . . . . . hoping for him to sweat is NOT something you make jokes about or take lightly.

The man SWEATS!    To the point his shirt and vest pits (always wearing a vest) are soaking wet.  His 1/2 bottle of cologne he wears mixes with the sweat, and you close your eyes and hold your breath as you pray for sweet death until those elevator doors open and try not to look panicked as you exit the elevator and gasp for air. 

Blend all that with his arrogant attitude and smug "nothing can touch me" grin and I only want to know his verdict. 


But, please don't say "hope he sweats".  You really don't mean that.   :D

HA, you're fooling yourself if you think he'll "pay" anything close to the amount swindled...So, throw his a** back in prison...Detroit lost out on the money and most likely will not get it back.  At least get the satisfaction of punishing the man...!  Otherwise, you're saying what he did was fine as long as he pays the city back...I'm not fine with that way of thinking... :P

I don't have a good feeling about this.  Politicians and sports celebrities are treated differently than the rest of us.   It will be impossible finding 12 people in Detroit willing to convict this guy.

Meh....way too many other things on my plate to be concerned about that soap opera.

I do wonder why the vast majority of those interested are from the partisan right.

What's the driving force here? A hate of Detroit? Race of the defendant?

No matter. I doubt anyone would ever admit to it anyway...some even believe they don't have a racist bone in their bodies....but everybody is entitled to their opinion.

Of course the mere mention of race will bring howls from my detractors.....and to that I say, a little introspection of your own prejudices may help temper the comments from getting out of hand.

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

I think mine is more geared to the fact he has been an embarrassment to the region IMO.  Not being from here I think perhaps I have a little more sense of pride in the State of Michigan and the City of Detroit.  I love both of them,,,,,,but this guys is more crooked and arrogant than any Southern politician that I have ever met.
