I’ll be watching this carefully. I wonder, if since the potential terms are so low and they’re cooperating, they’ll get any time at all – or anything more than a few days for overcrowding. If pop stars can be in and out for drug use and car accidents, the justice system will surely mess this one up, too. Or will the government use them as an example?

Looks like some chickens coming home to roost for Mr. Jackson. Interesting that the news happens to come out late on Friday as it will be left alone by the media and probably glossed over. Let’s see what his womanizing father has to say about the whole thing, should be interesting.

If Obama had a son he would look just like Jesse.

And another crooked Democrat thief in the “Civil Rights” movement is exposed although not very surprising.

Chicago, what a wonderful city! A real poster child for the 2nd amendment and Guiness Book of Records candidate for most gun relate deaths in a single year, a graduate school for up and coming corrupt politicians. If Al Capone were still alive he would be bursting with pride over Chicago’s rise in notoriety and it’s distinction for being a human sesspool where the police union contract with the city authorizes and sanctions on the job inebriation. Having your police force driving around with quarts of Jack Daniels and 9MM Glocks gives a whole different meaning to “Serve and Protect.” I am just thankful I live in Arizona where our biggest problems are Gov. Jan Brewer, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and a bunch of mentally challenged Republican State Legislators.

So why do we need individuals with assault rifles in front of Court buildings (to the left of Mr. Jackson, Jr. in picture above story). Really? Maybe if Lady Justice was actually SERVED, they wouldn’t be living in poop-oozing fear…

It’s almost like they’ve become an occupying army. Very disturbing to this individual, who grew up in NYC to the paddy’s walking the beat and interacting with the neighborhood with other than assault rifles.

Man, I gotta take notes for this story. Been waiting for this one.
First, that Jesse Sr. isn’t available for comment: Duh! He’ll eventually have to make a statement so that’s rich. So deserving. Apple and the tree ya’ know. Second, don’t care to postulate about length of time to be served. Longer or shorter, just glad he’s exposed for what he is and out of the seat. The public deserves better, even the morons who re-elected him. Everybody loves a fav son.
Third, how much you want to bet his physician is on the take? Even 50/50 this whole mood disorder schtick is a flimflam. Typical. Pick your en vogue malady and cry how bad you got it. Simpletons.
Lastly, just want to say Chicago’s a great city, has it’s problems but anyone who expresses partisan crap about Obama only taints their own reputation. Easy to make false accusations nowadays. Just turn on your radio.

@AlfredReaud, I didn’t catch that at frist. Jesse Jackson JR’s father, Jesse JAckson has said that Assault weapons should be banned becuase they can shoot down airplanes and blow up railroads. Ignorance must run in the family.

Medical science is making great progress in diagnosing new mental disorders, among which “Corruption Disorder” and “Perceived Impunity Disorder”, which are grave illnesses of the mind.
There’s also “Damn Stupidity Disorder” and “Spoilt Son of Powerful Politician Disorder”, which are no less serious.

As a side issue, could it be inferred that the world-wide-respected Mayo hospital was complicit in helping Jesse Jr. hide out for a while?

And he easily won his last election even though many of these facts were known. Same for Bob Menendez. His Dominican Republic romp was widely covered by conservative media outlets including FOX last October. So who lied and ignored the story? Leftist media
