    All of the corporate thieves get bailed out by the government and the Black man gets sent to prison. And no, I'm not condoning what JJ Jr. and his wife were found guilty of. Wasn't she also brought up on charges?

    I don't see any corporate bankers on that list. By the way, did all of those felonious politicians make headline news like JJ Jr.? Just curious . . .

    Both regrettable and unfortunate, so what did the judge also mandated, since Jesse Jackson Jr. allegedly has mental issues/problems/etc. too?

    Holla holla...

    My prayers go up for this Jackson family as a given...

    FYI...

    There aren't any, which explains the political reference:


    Perhaps we can now do a comparative analysis to Jesse Jr's political sentencing.


    Well, to answer your last question, perhaps we can do comparative analysis NNQueen to ascertain the disparate treatment, if any.

    Its source information Queenie, from which we can expose the wrong doing.

    And so was I, very curious, its interesting.
