CHAREN

Starkville Daily News - - FO­RUM -

Jo-Jo will go to jail more than once in his life, and he will get out and buy an­other Mercedes. He will do this un­til he dies in his early 60s or un­til he hits his late 50s, which is too old for a lot of street busi­ness. Guys like Trump don't have an ex­pi­ra­tion date, and many rich thieves keep steal­ing well into their 80s.

Jail is only bear­able for peo­ple who have more time than money. If you don't have to be in any cer­tain place at any cer­tain time, 18 months in the county lock-up is not much time.

If you've got more money than time, even a minute in a cell is such a sep­a­ra­tion from your cash that you will pay any lawyer, judge, cop or se­na­tor to get out.

Right now, Trump needs to think about the ev­ery 23 months rule. It's a good rule, and ac­cept­ing it keeps you from cry­ing ev­ery time some cop with gym mus­cles says, "We want to talk to you."
