Meek Mill is one step closer to being a free man.
It appears Philly District Attorney Larry Krasner's motion to not block Meek Mill's release from prison, is being seconded or at least endorsed by the Governor of the state. Democrat Tom Wolf has been in office since 2014, signing over trial course records for many disputed 'criminals' in his state. He is also reportedly trying to champion the decriminalization of marijuana. Meek's case chronicles back to a 2007 arrest, his arresting officer has since been named in a roundup of corrupt cops à la Serpico, and the judge presiding over his case took an "unusual interest" in his incarceration.
The incriminating factors have set off an appeal to revoke certain privileges bestowed upon judicial authorities. Governor Tom Wolf will be the first to admit there are glaring flaws in the system. He made his feelings felt with consideration of Meek Mill's predicament.
"I support Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner’s position with regards to the case of Robert Williams (Meek Mill). The criminal justice system is in need of repair. That’s why my administration has made efforts to invest in programs that divert individuals from the criminal justice system, improve public safety, and promote fairness. But more needs to be done. I am calling on the General Assembly to send me the Justice Reinvestment II bills, which the Senate just advanced out of committee. These reforms will help address issues in the criminal justice system from arrest, trial, sentencing, incarceration, and post-release."
The hip hop police are a force to be reckoned with. Don't believe me just watch.
