What's going on with our judicial system.. Our Lawmakers bargain with the judge for consideration for their crimes and get 2yrs but the public tends to not obtain the same consideration. Is it friendships, constituancy, money, status, or what...

Wow. I've been out of the loop on Jeff Smith. I was so impressed with him as a candidate, particularly after the PBS doc "Can Mr. Smith Get To Washington Anymore?" This is really shocking and disappointing. I feel bad for our city.

Well, Well so I this just proves prominate, white men can be just a stuped as a poor or prominate black man and commit crimes that destroy lives too.I'm sure this had a great impact on many people in his path.Oh, yeah why is it When the negative press is about a man of color the comments are full racist comments? But this just goes to show you that people of color aren't the race group that doesn't value their jobs and families.

I'm white. I made the first comment and would make the same comment if they were black. The difference is that I wouldn't make excuses about how society made them do it. In fact, I hope they get longer sentences for embarrassing me.
