Bernard did pretty well with only 15 months. He can do that time and be back as patriarch of the Texas estate for the duration of his life.

Restitution is $62,000. They never proved he stole any cash. They only proved he did not pay tax on the cash. If you assume a 25% tax bracket, the actual theft was about $250,000. Of course we all suspect much more than that was purloined over the span as king maker for Kwame.

Bernard always came across is one big dummy in the news. He turned out to be more cunning then the rest of the flock.

Blacks r usually portrayed in all kinds of negative ways by the white media. Same shyt different day. Now I feel the eyes of America and the world as far away as "down under" see racist America and that there r two kinds of justice where whites creating even greater crimes can get off like "scotch" free. The world is not sleeping they wide awake on American injustice, seen as very unfair and unbalanced just like a certain media outlet.

The term is "scot free" owing to the fact that a scot was a tax long ago. The Scotch have nothing to do with it.

If you don't wish to be portrayed in negative ways, do something positive like learning English.
