I have said what Detroit's problem is......I was called a racist. I offered ideas that were decent and legitimate.......I was called unrealistic. I told you the result of this behavior ........I was called foolish. I said it would come to this.......I was laughed at. To be totally honest Detroit can be swallowed by the earth beneath it and I will not say a word nor lift a finger. We quit, it's all you good folks responsibility now.

City already wasted too much money on his lame defense.

Kwame is only exercising the legal rights that we all cherish. The fed had to drop a large part of the case because of errors that were made. The judge continued to push the case forward in the face of a known conflict of interest on the part of his attorney. An objection was made at the time and it was denied. That action supports a cause for appeal. When 95.5 flew a message about the case over Detroit, that presented another serious issue.

I doubt Kwame will be successful, but the process needs to play out.
