Petition Urges Barack Obama to Pardon Kwame Kilpatrick


Supporters of the former Mayor of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick, launch a Change.org petition to urge President Obama to pardon Kilpatrick who is currently serving a 28 year sentence for racketeering...

President Barack Obama made history this year as the President who gave the most pardons while in office, commuting the sentences of 348 inmates, more than the last 7 presidents combined.

Now The People for the Release of Kwame Kilpatrick hope the President will extend his mercy to the former mayor.

The petition, with more than 13k signatures, reads in part,
As a native Detroiter, I am well aware of the things that Mr. Kwame Kilpatrick has done wrong. I believe he should pay for his wrong doings but 28 years in prison is just too excessive....
Go here to read the full petition.

Fun Fact: While President Obama was running for office Mayor Kilpatrick campaigned heavily for Hilary Clinton, even inviting Obama's former Chicago pastor and outspoken nemesis Jeremiah Wright to Detroit for a speaking engagement at the height of the campaign.

That man deserves all 28 years. He was an arrogant mean bully who ran the mayor's office like a gang leader. People was beat like dogs, spit on and killed.

Fuck this dude he hurt black Detroit, they ain't never again going to have a black mayor. Obama better not waste his time on this POS.

@ 8:57- that's not true. He pardoned black people- with some of them being black women.

I don't know about 28 years but Detroit already had a high poverty and crime rate and Kilpatrick made it worse by funneling money out of the system to support his own lifestyle. He made the financial state worse for the people who believed in him. His ass deserves punishment. Dude got greedy, selfish and arrogant!

Money is the root of all evil people.

Kwame could have used his position to change Detroit, but instead, he became even worse than a common street criminal. I know whites get off for worse, but Kwame violated our community and was selfish and greedy. He threw lavish parties for the Black elite, had strippers, cheated with city officials, all on taxpayers money. screw him. Kwame said screw Detroit when he was highball in, so screw him.

IA @ 8:28 and 9:55. I heard Kwame Kilpatrick was the city of Detroit's version of Suge Knight.

For those who think that Obama hasn't done anything don't know how govt work. Its a 1/3, 1/3, & a 1/3 President, House & Senate. The President couldn't get anything passed because Republicans control both. Now had we voted we could helped him out. Vote the GOP out. Some of you are using an Obama phone now. A month ago he just passed a Bill that knock off medical vills off your credit which can thousands off loans & insurance

Kwame can forget it. Obama is too smart to pardon his dumb ass. And Kwame was no Suge Knight—he didn't have any kind of muscle in the D. He was a wannabe gangsta who talked out the side of his neck. Hell, he didn't even have any "boys" who had his back.

My momma always said that rhe bed you make is the bed you will lay in. Let this be a lesson to all those egotistical theives who enter politics to only benefit themselves and not the community who elected them. We have the real power not them. Let's use it wisely folks.

Mayor Duggan doing the same shit Kwame basically did.

Why shouldn't Obummer bail out Kilpatrick? Kwame fucked over black people on an urban/municipal level, obomba fucked over black people on a national level. Clearly both vehemently despise black people seems like birds of a feather.
