RICO Cases Against Politicians

1 post / 0 new

Is Thom not aware of these two cases? I was familiar with Buddy, but not the other. Shagnasty had posted this on another site.

"There are two that I know about off the top of my head. Vincent "Buddy" Cianci (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_Cianci,_Jr) is the former mayor of Providence, RI and was convicted of racketeering a few years ago and is now doing time in federal prison.

Former Louisiana governor, Edwin Edwards (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edwin_Edwards) was also convicted of racketeering a few years ago and is also doing time in the federal prison system."

The War on Drugs is a War on Americans

The War on Drugs isn’t a war on drugs; it’s a war on people, and this weekend it claimed its latest victim.

On Sunday morning, exactly one week after an encounter with police left him with 80 percent of his spine severed at his neck, Baltimore resident Freddie Gray died at a local hospital. He was just 27 years old.
