As we continue to pray for Baltimore in the wake of Freddie Gray’s death while in police custody, rapper Meek Mill took to his social media account to share his personal story of being beaten and railroaded by the judicial system.
The Philly rapper posted a photo of his old mugshot, which shows one of his eyes nearly swollen shut and stitches on both sides of his face.
As Meek told his story of being “punched and stomped” by a few cops he admits, “If I wasn’t blessed the way I am I still would have hatred in my heart towards cops but I forgave bcuz I know all cops ain’t the same!”
Lips swollen …. Stitches in both swollen eyes! One of my braids ripped out! I weighed about 130 at the time And I was found guilty of assaulting cops! It’s clear 2 see I was punched and stomped by a few cops!
If I wasn’t blessed the way I am I still would have hatred in my heart towards cops but I forgave bcuz I know all cops ain’t the same! 2 “black cops” got on the stand and lied and cried about how I chased them down with a gun and tried to kill them! I caught that case at 18 and was stripped of my freedom and taken away from my family 4 times for the same case and still on probation.. 1 step away from jail if I make one mistake!
I can’t blame my judge because the law labels cops as “expert witnesses” and it was cops against a black kid and she’s suppose to believe a cops testimony first!! I never got a chance to speak to my judge about this from young man to woman and I hope she sees this to help other young men that won’t b able to make it thru what I made it thru!
After I caught the case I had no choice to hustle in the streets to get a good lawyer aka a good liar to help me get my freedom!
Unfortunately, Meek Mill’s story has become all too familiar. Situations like this are happening to young black men everywhere…everyday.
I’d love to see Meek and other members of the Hip Hop community, who know and have experienced injustices firsthand, come together fight for change rather than flaunt their riches on social media.
