Detroit’s Troublesome Mayor Resigns, Heads to Jail, and Forced to Pay Millions.
By David Najor :: Thursday, September 4, 2008 :: 43617 Views :: Article Rating :: Law & Order, Business & Finance, Government & Society

Michigan, USA - Frustrated Detroit Chaldean business owners breathe a sign of relief.  “Finally.  It took this long and cost so much for this city to see what kind of crook we had in office,” says Khalid Nalou, manager of Downtown Corner Market.  “He picked on small business from day one.  This man forced more business to leave a city than Katrina.  I moved my entire family from Detroit and was looking for another place to work.”

The infamous Democratic Mayor was not shy to share his dislike for small businesses in the city.  He often complained and organized attacks against convenient stores, gas stations, hardware stores, salons, and dollar retailers. 

“He upset and offended so many people.  He was arrogant and thought he and his Democratic Party don't have to follow the law.  He thought he was a lion, but now he is a mouse.  When you are selfish and not humble, this is what happens.  He ev,” says Nalou.   Kilpatrick will shamefully resign, serve 120 days in jail, and pay $1M restitution. 

Kilpatrick will plead guilty to two obstruction of justice counts and six other charges will be dismissed. He will go on 5 years reporting probation, serving the first 120 days in the Wayne County Jail. He must also leave office within two weeks. He has agreed to pay $1 million in restitution, paying $20,000 at the date of sentencing and the rest over the next five years.

Nalou says, “Our community helped him very much.  We donated to him, we helped him with getting votes, and making the city better.  Chaldeans helped bring over 100 million dollars to the city.  I know of one project personally where a Chaldean investment group remodeled a 20 story building in Detroit and filled it with professional people.  Everyone wanted to work with him, but he uses people, uses the community, and only cares about himself.”  Nalou also added, “Many Chaldeans are leaving the city and starting bigger businesses outside of Detroit because of that man.”

Kilpatrick legal problems are not over.  He has also pleaded no contest today to one felony charge stemming from his assault on two police officers who were trying to serve a subpoena on one of the mayor’s friends.
