This crap about "if it were me I'd still be in jail" is total BS. People who say this don't know how this works.
Aldon surrendered himself and posted bail just like anyone else would.
The truth tho is that Aldon likely never would have been charged with teh Gun possession charge if he weren't a public figure and there wasn't heat on the DA.
My point was not to compare me with Aldon. I know it came off that way though and that was my fault.
One. Smith got out on bail for the DUI before California law allowed it.
Second. Smith had weed he was not charged for.
Three. Smith had illegal firearms he wasn't charged for at least 2 years. Yes there may have beem some legal semantics involved but the fact the charges were filed after the DUI leads me to] believe they were shelved because of his status but became undeniable after his latest mix up with the law.
Four. He had to turn himself for the charges which implies he had a warrant out for his arrest. If you have a warrant out for your arrest on weapons charges the police come get you regardless of rehab. In fact the courts knew where he was at. The rehab was not court mandated either so they have.no legal obligation to allow him to finish. They certainly don't have to wait for him to get good and ready to turn himself in.
Five. Do you really think the state of Cali lets felony charges slide for 2 years for every person? I bet any normal person would've been booked the day of.
I just don't see how anyone can possibly think Smith was the victim in these situations. Please don't think Im trying to make him out to be a bad person. Im glad it worked out this way from a fan standpoint. Its just very hard for me to believe the scales of justice haven't been tipped in Smiths favor. My logical side just can't wrap my head around.
