Jack Johnson broke the rules of that time...If you want to forgive him, cancel the laws of that time...Like they say when anybody breaks the rules...THE LAW IS THE LAW...YOU DON'T LIKE IT, GET IT CHANGED.... I don't like when the law was voted on by the people to only allow 2 terms for the Mayor of New York...The mayor wanted a third term so he gets a meeting with people that favor him having another term..Did the people vote to change their minds? No way....But the law got changed anyway because the people's vote isn;t worth anything ....Instead of going to vote, everybody should stay home because your vote was proven that you don't get what you want..Wait until they install the camera money maker on traffic lights...When they need more money from the New York Suckers, somebody will come up with the idea to shorten the time that the yellow light will turn red quicker to catch more people passing the red light...Try explaining that to a Judge after they mailed you a ticket..
