Brother Kwame, you were an inspiration to many American Africans. We too are dishonest lazy thieves and we admired how clever you were stealing from the city. Man I wish I could go to a high class college like Florida A&M . What did you study? Car stealin or chicken frying? Good luck in prison. Sheeet half yo family already in there so you'll feel right at home! Peace Out Bro

Kwami,
There's another one in Washington DC that should
go to prison with you.
He's even worse than you are to waste money.
Too bad he isn't going in, too.
REMEMBER: Don't drop the soap !
You might want to take some KY jelly with you.
You're going to need it.
That is...if they can find your sorry anus through all of those
folds of fat.

May 25, 2010:
Kwame Kilpatrick, the disgraced former mayor of Detroit, was sentenced Thursday to 28 years in prison for corruption following a series of scandals that showed he had unchecked power while in office.
Kilpatrick’s defense attorneys originally had argued that federal prosecutors were overreaching when they recommended he get 28 years – but Judge Nancy Edmunds handed down every minute of it.
"It was a tough sentence but it was a very large crime (and) the punishment met the crime," said U.S. Attorney Mark Chutkow.
Kilpatrick addressed the court before his sentencing, saying, "I'm incredibly remorseful." But he stopped short of admitting guilt.
This was a different Kilpatrick. Gone were the flamboyant suits, the earring and the demeanor of the politician once described as the “hip hop mayor.”
He wore prison clothes and spent a great deal of time with his eyes trained at the floor.
"I believe he was broken. I believe he is very sorry," said Norman Yatooma, an attorney who investigated the suspicious death of Tamara Green, a woman tangled in the wild stories around Kilpatrick. "Sorry because he got caught."
His pre-sentence statement stood in contrast to his lifestyle in office.
Kilpatrick spent $800,000 more than he earned. He billed his city credit card for trips to Las Vegas, and bought concert tickets and football tickets along with an $850.00 steak dinner. He leased two Lincoln Navigators for his wife with public money.
"Managing a city with no money is hard every single day," Kilpatrick told the court.

HOW WOULD HE KNOW?

Great, he'll go to a country club prison, complete with tv, internet porn, all the butt sex he could ever want and free food, all on the tax payer dime. By the time he gets out he'll be almost ready to get that free SS money. Looks like he scored big time.

With 54 days per year off for good time plus time served, Kwame can be out by April Fool's day in 2036.

The good part is, his time served were for other violations and in the federal system, he cannot be released early for any reason. Therefore, he's in for 28 years starting now.

Not really accurate. They still offer good time and time served. It comes out to about 23 years if all goes well. There is no chance of parole.

I think we can all agree that April's Fool day would
certainly be appropriate for the jerk.
I hope they feed him so well in the joint that he has a heart attack and dies in prison within a year.

Now THAT would be true justice.

Maybe he will get caught smuggling cookies from the cafeteria like OJ recently did.

With the obese and under-exercised body, one could predict diabetes pretty soon. Then comes amputating limbs and blindness.

It's a big single step from the penthouse to the outhouse.

Only if they let him out for the day to attend her funeral.
