The neverending trial continues on.
Today seemed promising for Meek Mill and his supporters. After a decade-long battle to have his probation reconsidered, Meek Mill was back in court today to face Judge Genece Brinkley in Philadelphia as his legal team hoped to have her removed from his case and for a new Judge to take her place. Meek's camp had been very public about how they believe Judge Brinkley has been biased and inappropriate in her treatment of Meek. A rally was held outside of the courtroom to support the rapper but with all the positivity that seemed to swing his way, there was, unfortunately, no decision made during the hearing today.
While no decision is better than hearing "no" again, Meek has battled through his fair share of injustice in the last year. According to Complex, Judge Brinkley will be writing her decision shortly since it was not reached in court. Meek's team was obviously upset at the lack of clarity in his case with the rapper stating on his way out of the building, "I feel like what went on in the courtroom today is disgraceful. There was laughing going on and to me, it’s not really a game." One of the more vocal members of his legal team, Joe Tacopina, added, "I feel like I just left an asylum. That was a kangaroo court if ever I’ve seen one before. You had a judge whose whole purpose today was to try and protect one of the most corrupt cops in Philadelphia history, try and defend him at the expense of the system, at the expense of doing justice."
It sure sounds like today's events were messy in court. I guess we can handle some more bad news to top off the day...
