Sometimes we don’t even recognize America. What kind of country is this if you can’t get drunk while waiting to go to jail for what might very well amount to a life sentence?
Former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling was arrested and accused of public intoxication in Dallas earlier this month, but he will not go to jail early for violating the terms of his $5 million bond.
According to a Dallas Police Department report, Skilling was arrested about 1:45 a.m. on Sept. 9, in the 3600 block of McKinney Avenue.
Skilling was not drinking when he was arrested and did not resist arrest, according to the police document, obtained by the Houston Chronicle and first reported on Chron.com.
The guy is being sentenced next month. Shouldn’t this guy have the right to be drunk till then?
