Jim Dunn's immediate resignation?
« on: January 05, 2022, 02:52:48 PM »
Are any of us surprised Jim Dunn has immediately resigned from the school board? The question is Jim about to be arrested for the stolen money or did he cut a deal to resign and avoid prosecution? This is Georgetown and there is a long history of deals being made to save connected people from going to jail.

We will never learn the truth about why Jim Dunn had to resign. Just like no one ever learned why Susan Sawyer resigned from the school board. Or why she no longer has a driver's license. This is Georgetown people. The truth does not matter.

Part of the truth is that Jim Dumm came to Georgetown as a volunteer with some program like Americorps about 50 years ago, started Tara Hall from scratch on property donated by the Yawkey Foundation, built itl up from nothing into one of the premiere homes for neglected and abused children, helped thousands and thousands of those children to navigate their troubled childhoods, adolescence and teen years, feeding, guiding and educating them, served the entire community very well as a member and chairman of the School Board, and was (and is) a very good and decent person.  For my part, as a former prosecutor and as an attorney, I seriously doubt that he ever stole anything from anybody (I presume his innocence, just  like the US Constitution requires of me), but beyond that, really don't care if he did or not.  I know him to be a good person.  I say that as a person "not being from Georgetown" and someone who has never been (and never wanted to be) a "good-old-boy."  Like Groucho Marx, I never join any group or gathering that would have someone like me as a member and, most certainly, not the likes of the Indigo Society.               My suggestion is this:  Since it is the FBI that is handling the investigation and not Sheriff Weaver (whose integrity and impartiality the previous skeptical, judgmental and cynical posters presumably have doubts, although I have absolutely none), just wait and see what happens.  If the feds indict Jim and put him on trial, wait for the evidence to be produced and learn what a jury decides.  Beyond that, there isn't much anyone can do about the situation one way or another, so it would be best if everyone just took a deep breath or two and then went peacefully about their own business rather than casting stones, whether first, second or thereafter.

Hey Mr. Rubillo let me just say one name to you. There are plenty others but this is the one for tonight.

Bulleah White.

She started a group from scratch to help others. In the end we learned she also "helped" her family.

She was let off as well.

Good night sir.

The FBI could give a rat's ass about Georgetown "lgood-old-boy" politics or anything having to do with this small, nationally insignificant backwater or its so-called "power structure" or "powerful elite" (both notions which I, quite frankly, find laughable.)  The FBI will simply follow the evidence.  The US Attorney will review it.  If there is sufficient evidence to warrant it, the US Attorney will present it to a grand jury.  If the grand jury issues an indictment, there will be a trial.  A jury of 12 citizens, chosen from a list of prospective jurors drawn at random and hopefully both impartial and after listening carefully to instructions in the law given by the judge will render a verdict.  The word "verdict" comes fro the Latin word "verdicto" which means to speak the truth.  That is the American system of justice.  I, for one, believe in it.,  I know from first hand experience that it works quite well.  It is sure a hell of a site better than Sharia Law where the hands of the accused are simply cut off or lhe Law of the West were everyone shoots first and asks questions later.  I simply do not think it is ever appropriate to "kick ass and take names."  Any ass kicking should only follow the taking of names, gathering of evidence and the conduct of a fair and impartial trial.     Anyone who doesn't like that system of justice might be happier living in North Korea, Iran or Vladimir Putin's Russia.   Cynical speculation and conspiracy theories are for children.  Adults understand, respect and follow the law.

The FBI apparently cares when Jim Clyburn talks. Rep Clyburn was the one who got the Whites off the hook. Fortunately or unfortunately if you are Jim Dunn I don't think Rep Clyburn will be getting anyone to look the other way this time.
