I wouldn't be surprised if they run.

A course is a course
Or course or course
And no one can talk to a course,
Or course
That is, or course
Unless the course
Is the famous Special Ed!

I think that only happens in D&D.

This only reinforces the notion that there are two justice systems in America: one for the rich, and one for everybody else.

Steal a box of wine from Wal-Mart?  A year in jail, $2000 fine, and probation.
Steal $33 million from Chicago's taxpayers?  Pay us a nominal fee and we won't throw you in jail.  We won't even ask to deport you back to the Middle East you love so much.

Yay charter schools! The wild west of making public tax dollars into private profit in the fastest way possible.

You do realize that they haven't been to trial yet - this was just for a bail bond. Which you can even get if you're charged with murder

Not feeling terribly rational or compassionate today; can we just seize all their assets, lop of their heads and say we were thinking of the children?

Or should I waddle 5 tabs to the right?

My bail was set at 5 rubies, 7 diamonds and 14 opals.  I had get my parents to call everyone in the family to pony up some stones to get me out.  I couldn't stay in jail.  I was too pretty.  This was, of course, long ago.

Those corrupt bastards said they 'lost' my bail when I showed up for my court appearance.  Yet, the desk sergeant was wearing a large diamond ring that looked suspiciously like one of mine.  The matron in the women's wing had a ruby tiara.  She said that she had it for years and always wear it but I don't remember seeing her wearing one before.  The jailers on the mens lockup were all bedecked in jewels.  They all covered for each other and told me the jewelry store at the mall had recently had a big sale.

You could complain but who would listen?  Besides, the cop who arrested me told the judge I wasn't the guy.  Maybe his new diamond encrusted glasses had improved his eyesight.

So I walked but I still had to tell everyone at home that the family jewels were gone.

Man, I guess I haven't lived in Chicago in a while. When did WLS turn into a right wing talk radio station, on FM even? They used to play cool Classic Rock, I'm mean that was the home of Steve Dahl! The guy who blew up the Disco records during a Sox game and coined the term "Disco Sucks!"

Well color me confused, I thought bribery was the Chicago way..

Surprised it isn't a Russian oligarch.

Dam, I hope they didn't use blood diamonds.

Dahl was with WLUP at the time of Disco Demolition. I miss the days of Larry Lujak and his Animal Stories.

WLS FM plays classic rock. AM is all talk.

Ok thanks for the clarification. My memory fades of Chicago each day I don't get to eat an Italian Beef or a decent gyros. I think I convoluted Larry Lujack (Peace be upon him) and Dahl.

five luxury vehicles, a small fleet that includes Lexuses, a BMW, an Infiniti and a Camaro muscle car

I too, have a small fleet...a Fiero, a Datsun truck, an RX7, and a scooter. Five cars isn't a "fleet", ya jackass.

Prosecutors last week said Soultanali and Kassam recently sent $5 million to Dubai, though the men insist there was nothing illegal about that.

That's because there is nothing illegal about it. Suspicious, normally. But since they've stolen 33 megabucks from the government (and only sent 5 out of the country) I'm going to call this jurisdictional diversification and give it a pass.

For every case like this, there's 100 white rich dudes getting away with this scott-free in their Camaro muscle cars.

Slightly off; bribing your way out of getting caught for bribery is the Chicago way
