“Fool me once that I am not some grandstanding politician and my grandson was indicted on a gun charge, shame on you. Fool me twice that my great-grandson was recently arrested for a gun charge and shame on me.”
The old saying saying needed some tinkering in a futile attempt to describe and accurately portray just what is happening in the super-grade reality television plot twists of an extended political family ruling over Cleveland. This is an issue so radioactive that even the King himself, LeBron James, would not touch with a ten foot basket in regards to lingering lack of racial inclinations.
WJW-TV reports that the reigning mayor of the “Mistake on the Lake” and ardent firearm control advocate, Frank Jackson, literally has a gun problem within his immediate descendants. Jackson’s 14-year-old grandson was arrested Thursday after for allegedly fleeing from police, trespassing and ditching a .45 caliber handgun during the pursuit. What makes this narrative sickeningly fascinating is that Jackson’s grandson was taken into custody by authorities in April, after a traffic stop revealed an unloaded firearm. During the search of the vehicle, police also discovered that one of the grandson’s passengers had a warrant out for an attempted murder charge. Drew Carey is kicking himself. Cleveland Rocks all right- rocks all the way to exhaustive years, days and hours spent by mental health professionals in unraveling the ominous vein that is haunting the Jackson family tree. The sheer heaping allocations of time and psychotropic drugs allocated after years of stockholm syndrome family malaise littering the green and pristine landscape of the mayoral mansion with the gaudy ugliness of daunting sentiment.
The elder Jackson, who lives in the heart of an economically diverse neighborhood, hints that he can relate to the problems of violence, drug and crime. However, unlike citizens who rely on reasonable measures of self-defense guaranteed by the Constitution to maintain the sanctity of their homes and businesses, the head of Cleveland politics receive 24 hour security services from the city law enforcement officials, a privilege that convolutes a reasonable assessment of reality.
Here is a notable quote from Jackson on the gun debate. (buckle that seatbelt, as the biting irony gets rough)
