The ‘Expensive Pain’ rapper shared the viral photo of Trump and Rittenhouse from inside the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, expressing his extreme disgust for the criminal justice system.
“It is clear to see that the system is totally designed to destroy black and brown people! TV programming can’t hide it anymore…I don’t believe in nothing I was taught in history from public school anymore now that I’m educated,” Meek began.
He continued, “The system is the second state of slavery and the government fully understands the damage it does to our people not having money and incarcerating most of us! I was so caught in tryna overcome poverty/the streets I never noticed how deep the system really is! Pay Attention.”
Meek Mill Goes Off On Donald Trump And Kyle Rittenhouse Photo!
In his post, Meek included a news headline and photo of a white male in court which read, “A man who pleaded guilty to rape and sexual assault of four teenagers will avoid prison time after a New York state judge said time behind bars would be inappropriate.”
The strong statement comes on the heels of Kyle Rittenhouse being acquitted of all charges stemming from the 2020 shootings of two people during a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Washington. Following the verdict, Rittenhouse went on a media campaign sitting with Tucker Carlson and Ashleigh Banfield along with meeting former President Donald Trump.
A picture of two together went viral on social media following the meeting.
Donald Trump: Kyle Rittenhouse Is A Really Good Young Guy
“Kyle, I got to know him a little bit,” Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity following the meeting. Adding, “He called, he wanted to know if he could come over and say hello cause he was a fan.” Kyle was accompanied by his mother to the meeting, and Trump said “He’s a really good young guy.”
Donald Trump took aim at the criminal justice system too, but obviously on the opposite side of Meek Mill. “That was prosecutorial misconduct,” Trump claimed. He continued, “He should have not have had to suffer through a trial for that. He was going to be dead. If he didn’t pull that trigger, that guy that put the gun to his head, in one-quarter of a second, he was going to pull the trigger, Kyle would’ve been dead.”
Rapper Meek Mill Working On Criminal Justice Reform
It should be noted, Meek Mill is an advocate for criminal justice reform, helping launch the “REFORM Alliance” whose mission is to “transform probation and parole by changing laws, systems and culture to create real pathways to work and wellbeing.”
The rapper describes his own “entrapment” in the criminal justice system as being “shuffled through the prison system over technical probation violations — despite never committing a crime as a probationer and a wrongful arrest.” At the time, Meek “maintained his innocence on all but one charge, but his arresting officer – who has since been discredited – was the lone testifying witness in the case. As a result of the officer’s testimony, Meek was sentenced to 11-23 months in prison with probation that had been unreasonably extended for over a decade.”
