Jesse Jackson's car stolen in Detroit
The Chicago Suntimes ^ | September 4, 2010

Posted on 09/04/2010 8:45:55 AM PDT by lex33

The Rev. Jesse Jackson found out just how rough things are in Detroit.

Several Detroit media outlets reported thieves stole Jackson’s ride — a 2009 Cadillac Escalade — from a parking lot near the city’s Doubletree Hotel.

The SUV was later recovered, but it was found without its rims and one of its windows had been broken, according to Detroit’s WXYZ-TV.

Jackson was in Detroit for a march and rally called “Rebuild America: Jobs, Justice and Peace.”

Just days after Jackson’s SUV was stolen, one of Detroit Mayor Dave Bing’s vehicles also went missing. The GMC Yukon Denali was later found resting on bricks, also missing its rims.

Two words: insurance fraud. Unless he left the keys in the truck, this vehicle is equipped with transponder and is hard to start without the proper chipped key. Not that it cannot be done, it is just hard. Reverend wants a new ride?

That is obviously a crackpot headline. No longer is their “stealing”...there is only “redistribution”. All praise nobama!!!!

If they find out who did it I wonder how quickly Jackson will blame whites for the people who took it.

I could not think of a more deserving scum for this to happen to...after all the man who fights for the poor deserves an escalade...right? Pig!

Building demolition and auto theft are the only thriving businesses in Detroit these days...

That's what I was thinking - where's a photo of Jesse's fully tricked out pimpmobile? I wonder if it was like this:

For many years now, the Cadillac Escalade has been at the top of the stolen car list.

You hit the nail on the head!

Have you noticed how many of the Amish buggies are sporting chrome rims or spinner hubcaps these days?

Amazing. Wasn’t this just a few days days after Jackson castigated a region of Western Michigan about their bad attitude concerning Detroit. He lecturered them not to think badly of Detroit and how Detroit must continue to be the face, heart and soul for all of Michigan. Apparently, Wetern Michigan knows a lot more about the issue than the arrogant have-pontificating-mouth-will-travel....Jesse.
