Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is telling all with a 1,600-word Facebook take about the events that led to his downfall.


Kilpatrick’s message was posted on the Facebook page of his brother in law, Daniel Ferguson III on July 5.

Kilpatrick, whose legal battle to get his case overturned seemingly hit a brick wall with the U.S. Supreme Court deciding not to review it, says he is not “guilt-ridden, depressed, distraught or dismayed.”

Kilpatrick said the whole city “bought” the criminal case against him, calling out the amount of resources used including saying his phones were wire tapped.

“They sold this trial to the public (thereby severely tainting the jury pool) with rumors, innuendo, and speculation. They said it was about “stealing money”, giving Bobby Ferguson Contracts, “Fixing” Contracts, and even driving the city into Bankruptcy.

“There is not a single count, assertion, nor conviction, in my case of ANY stealing of ANY money.
“As a matter of fact, there is no embezzlement, no misuse of public funds, no fixing of contracts, no bid-rigging, no money. And certainly, the trial, case, nor issues thereof, have NOTHING to do with the City’s Bankruptcy at all. NOTHING!
“But the entire city bought it. The whole thing! Yes, “Real” Detroiters too! Don’t fool yourselves. Millions of dollars was spent by the Government, Media Stations, and even Private Businesses to “Get Kwame!”
“I AM NOT GUILTY OF ANY OF THE CRIMES THAT I WAS CONVICTED OF! NONE OF THEM!”
He says that the experience has led him to grow spiritually, but he eviscerates the criminal justice system.

“The Federal Criminal Justice system is a very wicked and evil system. I have seen men beaten, even killed, and even more disturbing … I watch dead men walking around here everyday. The way that most get here by plea of guilty to specific crimes. However, they are typically sentenced to far more.”
