You Can Break the Law If God Tells You It's OK

Just a little more insight on Kwame Kilpatrick - I am sorry but he seems to be an unstoppable fountain of screw-up.

Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox is filing yet another charge against Kwame that he allegedly violated the terms of his bond over the weekend. When someone is granted bond (i.e. they don't have to immediately go to jail if they can pay a judge-determined quantity of money and follow a slew of rules) he is typically not allowed to visit witnesses or victims of an open charge. Cox is now alleging that Kwame met with his sister over the weekend - the same sister who witnessed him (also allegedly) assaulting a police officer. The fun never stops with this guy, but here is something that many people do not know.

Kwame Kilpatrick has a J.D. (law) degree from the Michigan State University College of Law. This is not a man who can plead ignorance with respect to the finer points of the law. In fairness, he has not been a practicing lawyer, but I don't think you need special higher education to understand that it is against the law to lie under oath, assault a police officer, and violate the terms of bond. The fact that he has a J.D. just makes it a little more clear that this is a fellow who truly believes that his "mission from God" exempts him from the laws of humankind. Either that, or the Michigan State University College of Law really needs to tweak their curriculum.
