Corrupt Appalachian Politicians in Prison

Unread postby Koftruecross » 31 May 2019, 15:06

Where I live we currently have in prison,,,,two former sheriffs, a judge, a county prosecutor and a congressman and a county treasurer...etc. etc. They all got caught and are now in prison. We also have a state supreme court justice that got caught. Fleecing the tax payers.... This is why we are so cynical. These crooks come from both Republican and Democrat parties. There are more in prison than I have cited above. But I think you get the idea.

Good thing they're getting arrested, though! All the past FIVE governors of Rio de Janeiro state are behind bars currently. Two former presidents have been jailed recently as well. Meanwhile, here in my state an ex-governor who stole over R$ 2 bn from our health expenditures is still a Congressman. He was Senator when his crimes came to light, so he was protected from prosecution, and managed to get elected again as a Congressman (it takes less votes) to keep his protection going. I really think he works with cartels, everyone in the city with ties to politics knows he's very fond of cocaine. Crazy shit.

The sheriff and the judge put a contract hit on the new county prosecutor because he was honest and wouldn't deal with them. Two ghetto kids broke into the honest prosecutors house and shot him. But they only had one gun and it jammed. So they ran away and left him wounded and not dead. The prosecutor survived the single gunshot wound. And then he became a hero.

They have a special prison here just for corrupt politicians so they don't have to serve their time with street criminals.

And the one thing that really pisses people off is that these convicted politicians STILL collect government pensions even though they have been fired from their jobs from being crooked. The laws that govern the common people do not apply to politicians. If I get fired from my job I do NOT get a pension!
