L’État, c’est moi (or not)

Lauren Ruhland, 2008 MCPP intern

The mayor of Michigan’s largest city has been arrested after a bond violation.  A sad, sorry day in what was once one of the Midwest’s (and America’s) greatest metropolises.

In a statement to the press, 36th District Court judge Robert Giles justified his actions by emphasizing that no man is above the law:  “If was not Kwame Kilaptrick sitting in that seat, if it was John Six Pack sitting in the seat, what would I do?  That answers something. I go back to my original keep it simple.”
