Skakel to walk free because of...money

It's just great how rich white guys avoid jail, isn't it? I mean: USA! USA! Watta country!

The headline for this story is "Kennedy Cousin Poised for Freedom in 1975 Killing". Poised? Michael Skakel cannot be "poised" for the simple reason that he is a pig. Pigs and poised live on opposite sides of the planet. And did I mention he's a murderer?
Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel is expected to be released from prison this week while prosecutors appeal a ruling granting him a new trial in the 1975 slaying of neighbor Martha Moxley, the latest dramatic development in a case with an extraordinary history.  
Now, doesn't that just lift your American spirits? It reminds me of yesterday's White House press conference, where someone (I'm not sure who he was, perhaps the usual press secretary) speaking for the AG said the fine against JP Morgan would help to restore Americans' confidence. 

Uh, no. Convictions and long jail sentences for banksters would help to restore Americans' confidence. JP Morgan's fine was just like Skakel's freedom. In each case, money bought the defendants the right to harm people in an illegal manner -- and walk free.

Are you feeling confident yet? Good.

What good is money if it can't buy you out of a jam.

I read at least one maybe two books about the case. The guy's filthy and it took forever to put him away the first time. Pisses me off.
