The Rev. Jesse Jackson found out just how rough things are in Detroit.
Several Detroit media outlets reported thieves stole Jacksons ride a 2009 Cadillac Escalade from a parking lot near the citys Doubletree Hotel.
The SUV was later recovered, but it was found without its rims and one of its windows had been broken, according to Detroits WXYZ-TV.
Jackson was in Detroit for a march and rally called Rebuild America: Jobs, Justice and Peace.
Just days after Jacksons SUV was stolen, one of Detroit Mayor Dave Bings 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?

Think of it as wealth redistribution, rev.
We need photos of this whip. I’m willing to bet both had some bling-bling $10,000 Dubs on them.

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...

When they came for the Escalades I said nothing...
That's what I was thinking - where's a photo of Jesse's fully tricked out pimpmobile? I wonder if it was like this:

Two words: insurance fraud.
For many years now, the Cadillac Escalade has been at the top of the stolen car list.The Most-Stolen Cars
"According to a report released today by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS),
Escalades with model years 2007 through 2009 have the highest theft rate of any vehicle in the country."

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.

Well, that is a rather conservative color. What happened to candy apple red or metallic orange?;)
OK, this is my favorite story of the day.
No, of the week.
