It’s About Time

Finally, the mayor of Detroit is going to see what it is like to be treated like an ordinary citizen and not like a king. It’s about time is all I can say. Too many times Mayor Kilpatrick has felt he was above the law. The rules of a nation did not apply to him. Too many times Mayor Kilpatrick felt he should be given special treatment because is the mayor. Way too many times he saw himself and a deity and nothing less.

If that wasn’t bad enough, he took his children to court with him seeking sympathy. Not!! How could a father expose his young children to a court hearing that could possibly make a fool out of him? By the way, where was his wife Carlita? Did she not care how her children would react to seeing their father face a judge with no empathy whatsoever for a law breaker? My, my, my, this is one family that needs to seek counseling if for no other reason than the children’s well being.

The best part to this fiasco by Mayor Kilpatrick is his finding out what it is like to spend a night in jail. He has been processed, he will be suited in a prison jumpsuit, he will have to go straight to sleep when it is light’s out time and wake when he is instructed too. He will no longer be in charge. Like everyone else he has to take orders instead of giving them. Yes, there is a God and it ain’t Kilpatrick.

My hopes for the mayor are that he finally wakes up and really smells the coffee. That he accepts the fact that he is responsible for all his actions, good and bad. That he realizes he is not a God and never was. That he recognizes the job is just that, a job, and not a dictatorship. If nothing else I hope that he acknowledges he is not the only person in the world that can run the city of Detroit. In the long run all can be repaired if he just let it go.

On another not, the judge did what he had to do. Think about it, he will be up for reelection and his image is just as important to him as any other political individual. Do I hear an Amen?

I absolutely agree with what you've written here, Sylvia:

"That he accepts the fact that he is responsible for all his actions..."

He has been in denial for too long. He needs to recognize that he is an ordinary human being just like everyone else; and he is doing the city more harm than good right now.

Also, I had no idea he'd taken his children to court with him! Yeesh!
