Miles says the ultimate proof of status and power in this society is not money it is the ability to be above the law. Where to escape -- just desserts and criminal matters. It a lot of it has to do -- money definitely most of it has to do with money you know get he's got the best defense money can buy. Reasonable doubt at a reasonable price you know all those old sayings. It also helps to be a -- at some crimes the judges or lawyers may have a great deal of trouble coming down to part of their fellow thirties. This is all was the case Wilkerson had to water record. Federer in the common wisdom among lawyers -- almost everybody allies in court federal warrior would have gotten away with perjury if the case has not been so public -- I'm kinda he had us told Michael so when news here Mike from Michael -- -- which is -- A surprise that that that that that judge would make a big deal out of out of turner allegedly lying in court I mean. When you take the would you take the witness stand in your own defense I mean it's a really risky proposition I'm not saying that he didn't lie in court but it just. I see how does -- know the jury made a decision determination that he didn't -- but. You know. Quote he think doesn't lie when they're on the witness stand in the defendant's. One and again but the Fed. Thing in my got a call here this is. The I mean I got a text here from a guy 4603. I'd agree with you want super fly up until he opens his mouth now I think he should have got more time. It's another one here. From six oak tree Plaxico Burress is doing two years that New York Giants receiver. Is going to years in the slammer for shooting himself in the leg what do Malone. 978 H it's not that chuck got too much time it's that the others like felon Finneran and the rest got two little. How we this calls for humble pie song for chuck three years in the whole. 603 don't remember last week when Patrice turn with the treatment broad -- up Patrice -- -- sevenths. It's thirty days in the whole -- three years ago. I'm sure chuck would be happy to have the humble -- song played form at the deed it were if indeed -- were we gonna get thirty days of -- Thirty days -- -- look at pretty good right now for jock. 18774694322. -- a year next with how we cargo ahead lowly. I just to reiterate what what are your previous Collins said. This guy -- any loss. It and and you know it took -- sweet when you know reporting on this thing for the last three days -- -- it's a determined its -- like this when. Finneran didn't go to -- cinema pleaded guilty turn -- gambled he pleaded. Innocent and then what went on the stand like just settle lied about it in a jury didn't take very long to convict him you know -- a formal court reporter I would isn't completely. If you would do if you don't you'd take your. Oh. You don't I didn't know the right thing. I I dual but I I mean I also know that I I also know that if you stole a thousand box. I can't think of the last time a guy on the street got three years for steel and a thousand box without a god. To DO. I don't get an idea. I I I can't except it was so public and arrogant about it I'd like to see that transcript what the judge said laurel alluded to it. In -- -- that he lied twice and things like you know Robin the judge's knowledge and it. It is a federal judge -- -- gonna take -- -- that he is found guilty of one last it several -- and each other guidelines or they can make up percent. I just don't think that guy gets -- I mean it at all. At one other thing just at a mentioned Stearns -- and etc. I I can't seat jet stern gravel. They did I was there are telling -- I'm telling you he was he was treating him like he would like he was some kind of like he was the an honest man. Well I think it has tried as they make sure that. He couldn't come back and say gee I didn't know I. And then from the guidelines are part of read from those guidelines a million times and this just a list of -- questioned you know are you. Do you understand what your pleading guilty to worry do you understand you can't vote the understated he can't have a -- you under the influence of Markota. And -- was he was apologetic. About it even -- was boiler plate stuff you know that's required under the federal rules. Well I I I get that what can pay you weren't allowed to show but I don't feel sorry to turn. He gambled Eli and he is an arrogant SOB you know. That he X yeah I -- a bully me that you could go all the way back and I have never written a positive thing about -- -- never. That he was that he was complaining about me when I was called super fly when when he showed up but when he was taken away and is his zipper was down. But you know again IE it's just it's it's amazing that he got a thousand box you choose a thousand bucks white collar job. It's quality -- -- people to steal this money from the from you know the Boy Scouts or something you know the -- gambling problem that iguana foxwoods or the bite and scratch tickets or something. You'll -- what they get is you know what's it's like huge amounts of money they get that they get ordered for restitution and maybe at the boasting a couple of months in the house -- correction. I know this -- a federal case I know it was set up. You know -- that's different that state courts but it's still -- without for a thousand box it's a pretty it's pretty heavy seventh.
