Matty Moroun lifts Team Kilpatrick with breathless prose. Also monies. Because he cares deeply about the children.By
My God. What have we done? What have we become? In our bloodthirsty quest to hold elected officials accountable to the laws they write and enforce, we forgot about the innocent victims left in the wreckage of our legalistic pursuits. For if justice is not tempered with mercy then is it truly justice?
Brave plutocrat Matty Moroun reminds why we must seek to be a better people. He is one of those innocent victims of our bloodlust. While we pursued convicted felon Kwame Kilpatrick with vengeance for using his office to destroy the careers of three honest police officers and committing perjury, Matty Moroun was thinking about the children. Specifically, Kwame Kilpatrick’s children. And it just tore him up inside.
His “heart strings [were] tugged” by this “storm” and he was left to ponder “the innocence of youth.” Oh poor Matty Moroun was practically brought to tears by the “ill winds of cynical politics” that created “burdens” for the Kilpatrick family. He also sent a check for $50,000 which in no way has anything to do with Carolyn Cheeks-Kilpatrick’s support for Moroun’s Ambassador Bridge second span.
It is a testament to the human spirit that brave men like Matty Moroun and Kwame Kilpatrick can endure in the face of such harsh injustice. Just as we refuse to leave Moroun alone to commandeer public land and build an unauthorized international border crossing, we pursue Kilpatrick. All he wanted was to be left in peace to (on the public dime) accept graft, whore around, and politicize an already beleaguered police department.
But we couldn’t do that. We could allow a man, annointed by God and Bernard, that much. Have we lost our humanity? Our basic sense of decency? Perhaps Matty Moroun’s inspiring words can help us find our way again. (DetNews)
