Joe Biden’s Family Racks Up Arrests For Drugs, Drunk Driving — But No Jail Time

Excerpt:

In August 2019, Caroline Biden, 33, a niece of former Vice President Biden, was busted in Lower Merion Township, Penn., for driving under the influence and without a license, public records show. While the case is active, it’s unlikely Caroline will face much in the way of consequences — if history and Biden family rap sheets are any guide.

Her arrest, which was never made public, was at least the ninth among Joe Biden’s close family, and followed incidents involving his brother Frank, his son Hunter and his daughter Ashley. The cases — ranging from felony theft to drug possession — were all either thrown out, or resulted in light sentences with no jail time, according to a Post review of public records and published reports.

The Pennsylvania drunken-driving collar was the third run-in with the law for Caroline, who is the daughter of Joe’s younger brother, James Biden Sr. In September 2013, she was booked for allegedly hitting an NYPD officer during a full scale meltdown at her Tribeca apartment, following a dispute with a roommate over unpaid rent. The case was dismissed after Caroline agreed to anger management treatment.

In 2017, she was busted for spending more than $110,000 on a stolen credit card. A felony conviction was later tossed, and she was allowed to re-plead to the lesser charge of petty larceny as part of a sweetheart deal negotiated by her attorneys. She avoided jail time.

There is no evidence that Joe Biden, now the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, ever personally interceded on his family’s behalf — but the string of favorable outcomes has raised eyebrows.

“Eric Garner or George Floyd on the day each died could have benefited from the Biden touch,” criminal defense attorney Robert Barnes told The Post. Barnes — who is currently representing “Central Park “Karen” Amy Cooper — added that the kid gloves for Biden’s kin was “very unusual treatment when looking at the … treatment over time, geography, and kind of crime involved.”

Sure. But you just KNOW that at several points along the way the criminal or their criminal attorney said something to the effect of "You DO know who her Uncle/Father/Family friend is, don't you???"

Being a Democrat has its prestige.

Only to another Democrat. <_< Nobody with proper brainpower considers a Democrat "prestigious" beyond the level of, say, ditch-diggers or toilet-scrubbers.

Nobody with big bucks and political clout ever does any jail time for DUI.

Take a look at Brian France of NA$CAR.

Zero jail time for any of his DUIs, hit and runs.

  Oh you mean Biden Privilege or Dem Privilege?  You are correct in saying that the wealthy and elite never do any real time, and that is regardless of skin color.

Given that "Big Bucks" and "Political Clout" go hand in hand (have you ever met a poor person with political clout?),  I think this is true for just about any crime, not just DUI. We increasingly have less of a criminal justice "System" in the USA and more of a criminal justice "Racket".  DUI is merely one example - coincidentally, Erick Erickson was talking about this on his sow last week.

On paper, Georgia is one of the harsher states on DUI, with various "minimums" for even the first offense:

  • Mandatory minimum 24 hrs in Jail. (But can be waived.)
  • Mandatory minimum 1 year total "supervision" (Jail+Probation) (But can be waived.)
  • Mandatory 1 year license suspension (But can be waived and/or modified to allow driving to work etc.)

Basically, anything about a DUI can be waived with enough money. I got the impression from several of Erickson's callers that for about $10,000 you can essentially walk away from a DUI scot-free (Except for being about $10K poorer), you can even get it pled down to "Reckless Driving" rather than "DUI"... AS LONG AS nobody was injured (Meaning, nobody to complain about you getting a 'deal'.)

Lady Justice may be "Blind", but she's also got scales for weighing the moolah and an outstretched palm behind her.
