Subject: Jesse Jackson’s Brother Gets Outta the Slam

Written By: LyricBoy on 11/13/22 at 12:47 pm

Noah Robinson, half brother of legendary civil rights icon Reverend Jesse Jackson is getting released from the slam after serving 33 years of a life sentence.

He was ordered set free last month over the objections of prosecutors by a federal judge who cited Robinson’s age, risks posed in prison by COVID-19 ;D and his deteriorating health ;D, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The real question is… who got paid off… his crimes were as bad as it gets and he should not have been released from prison in anything other than a coffin.

Back in ‘89, the wealthy Wharton-educated businessman hired hit men from Chicago's El Rukn street gang :o to kill a boyhood friend of his, Leroy “Hambone” Barber, after the two got into a fistfight in South Carolina, where they both grew up.

In addition to his conviction for murder, he was also convicted of conspiracy to murder a witness who was set to testify against him in a drug case.

I lived near Chicago back when this was all going on. It was a pretty big deal.

In all likelihood the judge was getting paid off. Earlier this year she also released a 64 year old El Rukn kingpin, Melvin Mayes, who was serving 3 life sentences, for conspiring with Libya to commit terrorist attacks in the US.

Mayes was also deeply involved in the alleged $2.5 million terror deal with Libya, negotiating the purchase of shoulder-fired rockets and even helping arrange a phone call between then-dictator Col. Moammar Gadhafi and imprisoned El Rukn boss Jeff Fort in March 1986, according to federal court records.
