Dirtbag politician assaults cop;

but he can still make the Democrat Convention.
DETROIT -- A 36th District Court judge restricted Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's travel and revoked his personal bond today during a bond hearing, one day after the mayor was accused of assaulting a detective.

The mayor, who was on a personal bond that did not require him to pay any money to the court, was required to pay $7,500 in cash -- 10 percent of his $75,000 bond -- to stay free, 36th District Judge Ronald Giles ordered. By 2:50 p.m., Kilpatrick had paid his bond after a delay at the court.

"I am being real rational today," the mayor said as he waited to be released
As opposed to the rest of the time, I guess.

And why was he being investigated?
Worthy's investigation began after pager text messages published in January pointed to a sexual relationship between Kilpatrick and Beatty and possible perjury about the nature of their relationship and circumstances surrounding the removal of Deputy Police Chief Gary Brown when they both testified in that civil case last year.

Just bloody wonderful.

I live here in New Mogadishu. Dictator-for-Life Kilpatrick is sadly typical of what urban voters desire in politicians. Look at Marion Barry: caught with a hooker, smoking crack, on video... but, hey, he's a victim. Let's re-elect him.

How does the saying go: "With their own arrows, they will be wounded"?
