As soon as he turned himself in for driving over a cab driver, Mike Jackson has been described by many people he worked with and who knew him as being a "nice guy" and how they're really "shocked" that he could act the way he did. The Windy City Times has found people who saw a very different side of Jackson, who apparently said he could use his connections to shut down bars that asked him to leave and stores which asked him to pay bills. And in the "it's about time" category, Ann Jackson of AIDS Legal Council of Chicago has suggested having a fundraiser for Haroon Paryani's family.
