      Why does race has to the be in the equation? Crime doesn't have a color. They deserve everything that they get because they defrauded the communities that they serve and the american government.. I am not a fan of the Jackson family because of their political agenda but there no reason to be ignorant either. You are better than that and better than them b/c atleast you have respect for yourself and others.

Meanwhile they get all the support they need, all the luxuries of life at home,, but wow, get caught with some weed you go to jail right away!! when is this going to stop where politicians get treated way better than us common folks with no ties to the justice system??

      I am waiting on the day as well. It is not fair that many people are thrown behind bars for things that doesn't make sure but crimes like this deserves immediate incaration

      They need to get rid of a lot of politicals. The difference between Jessie and the rest of the politicans is that they didn't get caught. For instance, Mayor Richard Daley has been a crook for a long time now and he just never gotten caught. He will go on TV and tell you what he is not going to discuss or do. The current Mayor is following in the same foot steps. These people are well connected and Jessie and Sandi were not.
