The court case is over. Now it's a matter of sentencing and appeals. All along, Bobby and KK have been styling and the fed has no idea where the money for all the lavishness has been coming from-apparently.

They all had their good times. They all enjoyed the spas, casinos, entertainment extravaganzas and so forth. They had a lifetime of fun in a few years. Now it's over. Time to pay the piper. Write those books from the cell. No, there won't be any Nelson Mandela status for anyone here.

Fed attorney McQuade says Bobby took $127 million from the taxpayers. Some of that must be squirreled away. With this kind of flow, no wonder Judge Edmunds opted for immediate custody. Could you see Kwame sitting on some island fanning himself with cash as he read the news of his disappearance? Can you picture Bobby and KK parasailing over the surf? These are the visions Judge Edmunds had and how it would affect her career if it happened.

It's black Detroiters that have party hats on about this. They have totally turned on Kwame and said he deserved it.
Kwame has spent time in jail over probation violations. He's in jail at this very time and not allowed to have shoelaces. Judge Groner wants one last shot at him tomorrow. That piling on may not happen now that he is in jail for the duration.

I must admit that the media showed lack of compassion and poor judgement by hounding the defendants and attorneys when court was out. We know Charlie LeDuff does his thing, but it really looked lame.

Guys like Kwame will go to a country club prison with cable tv, steak and lobster, all the hookers you could want, all on the tax payer dime.
