  • It isn't just the Bush kids. Celebrities, like Brittany SPears, Lindsay Lohan, etc., Athletes, and hell, look at congressmen and senators themselves who commit crimes, not just their kids but them directly, and get a slap on the wrist. Remember back in the day when all those Senators bounced thousands of dollars worth of checks and nothing happened to them. Let one of us try that one and see where we go. Celebrity status and money always dictate which tier of the justice system you wind up dealing with.
  • Because if you get in trouble with the police and your name is Bush you have nothing to worry about. Ignoring boring laws written to control poor people is not only a harmless rite of passage, it's a sacred Bush family tradition. The police will let you sail free no matter what, and if for some reason they don't, simply cut a five-figure bribe check from your mega-phat trust fund account!
  • Do you even have to ask? Money buys good lawyers. Has America learned nothing from OJ?
  • To my knowledge, money and political connections make life easier. The Bush family unethical behaviour doesn't amaze me anymore. George P. Bush, Jeb’s son, was busted for burglary and criminal mischief in Florida when he broke into his ex-girlfriend’s house and drove his Ford Explorer across the home’s front lawn. George P. avoided arrest. John "Jebby" Bush, Jr. was caught by the police, literally, with his pants down in a parking lot, having sex with a teen-age girl. No charges were filed Jenna Bush got busted for using a fake ID to buy booze. After doing some community service, her charges where dropped by the Court of Texas. Noelle Bush was arrested at Walgreens on a charge of prescription fraud, attempting to obtain Xanax but soon released from rehabilitation to the custody of her parents. A judge dismissed the drug charges against her. Enquirer reports that Jeb Bush covered up three other prescription fraud incidents. Does anyone seriously think that, if Ms. Bush had been a young, black person, she wouldn't now be languishing behind bars for the next several years for multiple drug violations?
  • When was the last time you saw a celeb held accountable for their actions in this country?
  • because they are extra special...
  • In this country we have a two tiered legal system. Those with money and those who don't have it. The lsit of wealthy or politically connected people escaping punishment would be a large one. Just another brick in the wall towards the revolution.
  • because just like Bush himself, daddy is always there to buy him off, or to pull strings to get out of punishment
  • They have to live with the name.
  • Daddy knows the right people....when you have money and power, you can get away with murder (just look at OJ Simpson...but then, maybe this time he'll get what's coming to him!). Look at the spoiled little Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie and Lindsey Lohan spending almost no time in jail at all. What did they learn?
  • Because any arresting officer would be immediately black bagged.
  • It's not just Bush's kids, check out most of the top politician's kids
  • Why isn't eugenics practiced on the people that support it the most? It's all about money and power. When you're family has billionaire status, you can literally get away with murder(s).
  • They committed the horrible crime of drinking a beer while underage. Noone here has done that right. Check out what that dullard Algores kids have done. Then look to the biggest kid of all, Clinton and tell me why he isn't in prison.
  • Whoever says that money can't buy you everything, eh?
  • I think you forgot to mention Al Gore III, the addict and dui king. I'm sure you also forgot about all the Kennedy kids and their murders and rapes. The point is that we politicians look after our own. How do you think I got to be treasury secretary even though I didn't file tax returns? The laws are to keep you and yours under control, not me and mine. We're above the law.
  • (Redd Foxx impersonation): Trickle down, dummy!
  • to quote mell brookes from the movie "history of the world part 2", "it's good to be da king!" lol!
  • it's easier to have show trials for black football players who mistreat their dogs and 70+ year old movie directors.
  • The same reason other famous people get off easy: power, influence, and wealth.
  • Money and power. The more money you got, the less likely justice will be served. Got Ted Kennedy?
  • They committed horrible crimes!
  • what about the Kennedys?
  • For the same reason none of king obama's appointees are in jail. You know the ones who didn't pay taxes for example. Or the same reason why the now dead and forgoten Sen. Kennedy was alowed to die in freedom and not in jail. Money and connections to the Whitehouse.
  • MONEY and POWER TALK !!! +5
  • Those crimes must set precedent to push new laws through.
  • I was wondering the same thing about Charlie Rangel and Tim Guitner,,if you and me would have pulled the crap they did we would be in jail but they are still in office.
  • The Bush family, starting with Prescott, is politically powerful. Any of that family could do, literally, anything they wanted to do, and nothing would happen to them. This isn't true for only the Bush Clan, but for all ultra wealthy people. They have no rules.
  • For the same reason Ted Kennedy never went to prison.
