“Just a Good Guy…With a Few Bad Habits”

Hip Hop Indicted

with 5 comments

Pride. Gratitude. Integrity. Doing the right thing. None of these are terms you normally find associated with Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy. Ms. Worthy’s concept of criminal behavior has, to this point, been confined to sensationalizing the actions of white police officers to the point of being able to charge them with criminal conduct.

Today, however, Ms. Worthy showed she has apparently spent the last month and a half becoming acquainted with not only the law, but also with a dictionary.

Kym Worthy handed down a 12 count indictment charging Detroit Mayor Kwame “Hip Hop” Kilpatrick and his former Paramour/Chief of Staff Christine Beatty, with perjury, obstruction of justice, and willful misconduct. Worthy further showed that she actually “gets” this case. She made it clear that it is not about sex, but about lying under oath. Not about sex, but about destroying the reputations of police officers who were only doing their jobs to the best of their abilities. Not about sex, but about wasting taxpayer dollars to defend a lie. Not about sex, but about public corruption. 

If convicted on all counts, Hip Hop could face nearly eighty years in jail. Sadly, in Michigan the sentences would have to run concurrently meaning the worst that could happen is Hip Hop spends a few years playing right field on the prison softball team.

Ms. Worthy’s actions today went a long way in changing my opinion of her. She seems to have had an attack of conscience and realized that a crime is a crime regardless of the color of the criminal.

You can watch Ms. Worthy’s press conference here:

The only hurdle standing in the way of Ms. Worthy’s successful prosecution of Hip Hop and Beatty will be seating a coherent jury from the waterheaded, crack addicted populace of the City of Detroit. For Hip Hop to be tried by a jury of his peers, Jackson Prison would have to give furloughs to it’s resident population of Crips, Bloods, Chambers Brothers, and Black Mafia Family members.

So, thank you Kym Worthy, for having the integrity to do the right thing and best of luck to you when it comes to prosecuting Detroit’s Hip Hop Mayor.

  1. We’ll see how this shakes out, but its going to be a while for that. One thing that I find interesting is listening to those who are falling in line to defend Hip Hop and his Ho’. I bet I heard at least 6 interviews on the radio with their pastors, or other pastors and Reverends from the City of Detoilet. Interestingly enough, they all were upset with Ms.Worthy, for bringing these charges. The rhetoric was thick to be sure.

    I wondered, did Hip Hop seek the approval of his Reverend BEFORE he started putting it to the Chief of his Staff? I doubt it. Did Ms. Beatty seek approval of her Reverend before she began offering more personalized services to the Mayor? I doubt it. But both of them had thier Reverends in the media today defending them.

    No mention of several police careers ruined, or the millions the city spent to cover up their tryst.

    Hip Hop would have been off getting some referrals from the New York goverenor, I think in the long run a $5,000 hr Ho would have been much cheaper than the one he ended up with. Not to mention what its gonna cost him to keep his wife happy from here on out. He’ll be payin that debt forever…..if she doesnt dump his sorry ass.

  2. Just to let you know. The jury pool will be from all of Wayne county, not just Detroit. So its a good chance they will get some people with a brain.

  3. Ms. Beatty was definitely between a rock and a hard place in this incident. She was intimidated into a sexual trist, of course, her job and her salary was at stake . I do feel sorry for her. “Hip Hop” being a lawyer, advising Ms. Beatty what to say and do, she was doing what she was told (ordered) to do. 99% of all wommen would have done the same as she did.

    Now it is in her best interest to take a plea, and testify against the “Black Cloud of Detroit”. If I were on that jury…I would never find her guilty. She was doing what she had to do to survive. Her father stated it in an interview Satuday…” My daughter was controlled my a person that has and had no regard for the law”. I totally agree with that statement.

    “Black Cloud” will have fund raisers for his legal defense. Ms. Beatty won’t have that luxury. Of course, “Black Cloud” doesn’t need the fund raisers…he should use all of the payola that he has received from the contracts awarded to his “hip hop” homies.

  4. Tell it straight about Kim Worthy. She doesn’t selectively prosecute based on ones color as you are insinuating. The police that she did prosecute, who happened to be white were found guilty by a jury of their peers for the charges of the death of Mr. Malice Green.
    Are you sugesting that she should have let former police officer Nevers walk scot free?
    She did prosecute them all both black and white officers. So don’t smear her like that when she really doesn’t deserve it. As far as Mr Kwame Kilpatrick is concerned, I hope that he receives his day in court and receive his jest reward from lady justice.

  5. Maarti,
    Since we are talking straight, let’s be straight on Saint Malice. He was a crack head and a criminal who attacked two police officers while they were attempting to make a valid arrest. Nevers and Budzin were convicted in her mind before they ever went to trial. Kym Worthy’s prosecution of them, and other police officers, is one of the reasons Detriot is rapidly descending into anarchy.
    That being said, Madame Worthy did surprise me by choosing to indict this thug. This is one case in which I will wish her every success.
