Justice? Detroit Drug Dealer and FBI informant “White Boy Rick” to be resentenced

Justice? Detroit Drug Dealer and FBI informant “White Boy Rick” to be resentenced published on 4 Comments on Justice? Detroit Drug Dealer and FBI informant “White Boy Rick” to be resentenced

This is an interesting development.

Via The Detroit Free Press:

Richard Wershe Jr.— known as White Boy Rick — wore European suits and had a full head of hair when he gained notoriety as a teenage drug dealer in the 1980s.

In a Detroit courtroom today, the now bald 46-year-old had on green jail garb when he learned he will be resentenced for a drug crime committed at age 17, which could lead to his freedom.

Wayne County Circuit Judge Dana Hathaway issued the ruling and said her decision was based on case law related to juveniles and the evolution of penalties for drug crimes.

Wershe was quiet and stoic during the 5-minute hearing in the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice attended by friends and family, including his mother and 27-year-old son. About a dozen reporters and several photographers also gathered in the courtroom.

Wershe was convicted of possession with intent to deliver more than 650 grams of cocaine in 1988 and has spent the last 27 years in prison. Authorities said Wershe had eight kilos of high-grade powered cocaine worth about $5 million.

I remember when this man’s trial and sentencing happened back in the 1980’s. I never knew him personally, as he lived on the other side of town from me. However, I remember the buzz in the local media. There is alot more to Rick’s story, to put you up to speed, here are a few videos on the subject:

For some context, watch these:

As you can see, Rick was used by the feds and then left in jail to rot. 😡

The truth is, that if Rick were a black man, he would already be out of jail. However, because Rick is a white man and because he happens to know a good deal about the corrupt workings of the Detroit police and the political elite class in Detroit and the federal government’s so called “war on drugs,”  the feds want him to stay behind bars.

Here is hoping that Rick finally gets some justice in his very sad case.

Sadie Robertson loses to a no-talent black man on Dancing with the Stars

Sadie Robertson loses to a no-talent black man on Dancing with the Stars published on No Comments on Sadie Robertson loses to a no-talent black man on Dancing with the Stars

So, Sadie loses because she is a moral Christian white girl and they give it to a no talent jackass, who’s biggest accomplishment was being the fresh prince’s rich sidekick? Nice, real nice. The thugs in Ferguson won this one. …and they wonder why I loathe black people? I’m just saying. 😡

The video:

Sadie was, as always, unlike the black thugs in Ferguson, a class act. Sadie Robertson will one day go on to be something great and will be an awesome wife and mother to a very lucky man. As for the free prince sidekick; he will be what he is now, a has-been actor that was really only known for one good show. Lord knows, he has milked that little gravy train for all it is worth.

Update: Also too: Before anyone says it, I know good and well what I wrote here. This guy was an elected official. I’m not, I am a writer, there’s a difference. Besides all that considering what happened to my cousin in 1994; blacks should be glad I am not out murdering them at random, if it were not for Jesus, I would be. 😡

NEW YORK –  It’s been a bad week for A&E.

First, Dave Hester sued the network, claiming “Storage Wars” was staged. Now the network’s History Channel division has its own lawsuit brewing over its hit show “Pawn Stars.”

A talent agency has filed a lawsuit against The History Channel, TMZ reported, claiming they signed on to represent the cast of “Pawn Stars” back in 2007 and 2009 and were terminated after the show hit the air.

The agency, Venture IAB, claims they were representing Corey Harrison, Rick Harrison, Richard Harrison and Austin “Chumlee” Russell before the stars made it big. The agency alleges six months after the show hit the air, two “Pawn Star” executives convinced the cast to end their deal with Venture.

Poor Rick Harrison; the dude cannot catch a break! I mean, the show is a success and what happens? The vultures come out in force. I am writing about this, because I happen to like the show, quite a bit. It is a good escape from the stupidity of politics all of the time.

Hopefully, Rick can get this dismissed or solved, without losing his rear end.
