Brian Dickerson is an apologist for criminals, public corruptionnBy
Dull Free Press columnist Brian Dickerson is worried that all this energy to root out public corruption might distract law enforcement from fighting gang violence. Wait, what? It’s not like there are Purple Gang shoot-outs in the streets these days. Hell, when was the last time anyone saw YBI rolling around in Suzuki Samurais? Dickerson is always worried about consumer fraud. Does selling your employer’s property for personal gain constitute consumer fraud?
Seems self-evident that only gang currently threatening Detroit is the gang looting the public coffers with shady land deals, no bid contracts, and incompetent governance. Self-evident to everyone except maybe Brian Dickerson.
I suppose it’s worth noting that even Stalin still has his defenders. Apparently, the same can be said for Kilpatrick-era kleptocrats. Let’s review Dickerson’s pathetic justification for not investigating public corruption:
How will it serve the public interest to pursue the myriad threads of corruption trailing from the former mayor’s tailored suits until every dirty deal is exposed, every corrupt contract rescinded, every bagman and apparatchik jailed or flipped?
Those of us who have encouraged prosecutors to persevere until the last sins of the Kilpatrick administration have been laid bare should at least acknowledge how eager we are to be distracted from Detroit’s more intractable problems.
So, in addition to deciding how much more we want from Kilpatrick, we need to ask ourselves how much more we want to spend getting it.
Is Dickerson so naive to believe metro Detroit’s culture of corruption began with Kwame Kilpatrick and foolish enough to believe it ended with his resignation? So much to say in response to this claptrap. So many logical fallacies and false choices to rebut. So much repugnant accommodation of obvious criminal abuse of power. So much…ah fuck it…Brian Dickerson doesn’t merit a serious response. Let’s just channel Rick Roma…
You stupid fucking cunt. You, Dickerson, I’m talking to you, shithead. That’s right. What are you going to do about it? What are you going to do about it, asshole? You’re fucking shit. You company man. Where did you learn your trade, you stupid fucking cunt, you idiot? Who ever told you that you could work with men? Oh, I’m gonna have your job, shithead. When I find out whose cousin you are (Brian Cheeks Dickerson?), I’m gonna have your ass.
All train compartments smell vaguely of shit. (Freep)
