STILL THINK FLOYD MAYWEATHER IS BEING TREATED UNFAIRLY
San Francisco, CA- A few days ago, the great Jack Dunne, a longtime friend and one time contributor to RingTalk.com, I believe he and a few others made cracks about the fact that I was way off base in my feeling that Floyd Mayweather is being treated in an inhumane manner by sticking him in the cell pictured here for 23 hours a day. Some of you compared Floyd’s jail stint to that of the “Queen of Mean,” the late Leona Helmsley, the New York City hotel owner and multi-billionaire who is famous for saying things like, “We don’t pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes.”
“QUEEN OF MEAN” WAS ONE MEAN MOTHER!
Leona Helmsley spent nearly two years in a Danbury, CT Federal Prison, then an all female jail in 1988 when she was sentenced for Conspiracy related to tax fraud. According to Wikipedia, “This prison was known popularly as a country club prison, especially among mobsters who were sent here.” Does that sound like the same situation Floyd Mayweather finds himself in folks?
AND WHAT ABOUT MARTHA STEWART?
Martha Stewart, like the “Queen of Mean,” was from all accounts a stone cold bitch. Martha spent six months in the Federal Prison pictured here
in a prison she was allowed to choose from in Florida for Stock Fraud or “insider trading.”
MARTHA STEWART & LEONA HELMSLEY WEREN’T BLACK
I know the judge in the case made a statement about the Clark County Jail not being the Four Seasons Hotel, and while I think Floyd should do his time as he did do a crime, the settings I feel are unjust. This is not an article defending Floyd Mayweather, no, this is just an example of how easy prison life was for Leona Helmsley and Martha Stewart, and the contrast from where Mayweather is being held.
