JAY-Z speaks about Meek Mill’s jail sentence: “Probation is a trap” for black people

Hov has written an op-ed for The New York Times in which he argues that Mill’s case “is just one example of how our criminal justice system entraps and harasses hundreds of thousands of black people every day.”

The Roc Nation head goes on to call probation “a land mine, with a random misstep bringing consequences greater than the crime. A person on probation can end up in jail over a technical violation like missing a curfew.”

Speaking specifically to Mill’s situation, he reiterates the well-referenced fact that both the prosecutor and the parole officer recommended no additional jail time, suggestions Judge Brinkley ignored in her sentencing. Further highlighting how unjust Brinkley’s ruling is, JAY-Z points out that the Mills probation status stems from an 11-year-old case, and that the charges that led to the recent violations were all thrown out. JAY writes,

“In March, [Mill] was arrested after an altercation in a St. Louis airport. After video of what had actually happened was released, all charges were dropped against Meek. In August, he was arrested for popping a wheelie on a motorcycle on his video set in New York. Those charges were dismissed after he agreed to attend traffic school.”

Yes, there were no actual charges against Meek Mill, yet he still is being sent to jail “..It’s time we highlight the random ways people trapped in the criminal justice system are punished every day,” JAY-Z continues. “The system treats them as a danger to society, consistently monitors and follows them for any minor infraction — with the goal of putting them back in prison.”

Meek Mill’s Judge Reportedly Being Investigated By FBI

Genece Brinkley, the Philadelphia-based judge who last week handed Meek Mill a two to four year prison sentence for violating his probation, is being investigated by the FBI.

“The feds have an interest in the judge and [her] potential relationships”. “This is an investigation looking into a possible extortionate demand. Undercover agents have been in the courtroom monitoring the Meek proceedings since April 2016.”

“I don’t know if he didn’t think I was going to hear it, but I did” says The Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, “I wouldn’t have flied a lawsuit if the track was actually good. But since he included my theme in a f*cking garbage track, I’m angry.
