Rapper Meek Mill is pushing for criminal justice reform after his own controversial legal troubles. Pennsylvania's Supreme Court ordered Mill to be released from prison on bail two weeks ago. Back in November, a judge ordered him to serve up to four years for violating his probation after a 2008 conviction on drug and weapons charges. Mill is appealing that conviction. Many activists claim Mill's treatment was unfair and harsh. Meek Mill and his attorney, Joe Tacopina, join "CBS This Morning" for their first live TV interview since Mill's release.

What is all the fuss about him being in jail saying free mill and saying when he gets out he’s gonna save hip hop and now he’s out it’s barely no talk about him, trying to make him bigger then he wasn’t he’ will never be the next Tupac like fans making him out to be,
Meeks explanation of how probation works is why they put them on long probation in the first place. That is why cops stop black men and immediately ask them if they are on probation and try and escalate the situation so they can violate them and get them put back in prison.
I’m white and meek is so right. It’s crazy what the police and district attorneys get away with. I did 5 yrs for being addicted to perks. The police lied on the stand, I did 5 straight. What’s crazy is the 8 yrs probation he got it’s a set up. Tell em meek speak for the poor
Yeah the technical violations are a fukn trap. More talk and more doing. Lets continue this fight. I would think to fight for more but I guess we still have to fight American gvmt and constitution just for human dignity. What a fukn joke this amurdicah is. Let’s go meek. !👑🦍☯️🕋
We never know what God's plan is. We never know who he is going to use and how he is going to do it. If each one of us would take more of a positive, optimistic outlook on the possibilities of individuals instead of putting such a negative spin on their life...A lot could be changed for the good.
We have enough powerful black rich men and women to help Meek , but for some reason they cowards or they don’t care. You don’t see Chinese people sticking up for Arab people common !! Wake up to this systematic racism in America and European countries. So why does white billionaires want to help meek mill who’s net worth is probably what they spend on decorating their house. Is because there’s a interest behind it for them !! Is all about money and capitalising using the poor black man#StayReal
Designing the system to develop this outcome isn't saving nothing either. Food for thought! Who do you blame for spilling the wine the kid or the parent for having it around? Don't speak the so call truth if you don't speak it from the bottom -up.
You a goof. Rappers normally rap about there social n environmental difficulties. Just because a rapper talks about guns doesnt mean hes saying to get a gun. If u were to actually listen to rappers messages u would understand that they try to give off the impression of someone being in there shoes n what they have to deal with everyday. On top of that they don’t encourage ppl to do criminalizing things. People have their own choices on whether they decide to do those things or not. Now that we see a rapper trying to make a change ppl seem to poke at his past not realizing that they dont no any FACTS about him. You should choose to support the message he is trying to bring across instead of holding on to past events that shouldnt have even happened if our justice system wasnt corrupt.
So the CNN guy says, “the people say he doesn’t have the look.” So, what’s the look then?? Do they mean being “black” Now a lot of you will say “the people” made that comment because he’s a rapper that raps about violence, drugs etc...that’s his craft and how he feeds his family!! But let’s talk how he’s really living! He’s a boss. And he’s a boss because he hires people. Not just people but family. Those who are saying he don’t have the look are those that wouldn’t step a foot in most of these rough neighborhoods. Meek didn’t ask to be here on earth.And you can say his family should have made smarter decision, but come on now. Birth happens all over and will continue too. Some live free and are born with a silver spoon in their mouth and some grow up around poverty, and in poverty and around murders and murderers.
Meek got the people behind him. He’s not going back to jail at all. The Supreme Court stepped in. He’s not going back in.
Salute to meek!!!!!
Shiii is real I keep watching these meek video s now but hope he really want to make the world a better place I been threw it all but I survive for my kiddos. PeaCe to him and all baCking him JZ Can do what he want rt now see.
This is exactly what played out in "The Night Of" on HBO. America's justice system is based on $ period. When u get probation for vehicular homicide because you have something no one has ever heard of "affluenza" because you have money & the best lawyers, while another person is serving 5 years in prison for unbeknownst to them, voting as a felon in a state it's unlawful with a public defender...there's a problem. Race def plays a part most times, but I know many white men & women who got a raw deal cuz they didnt have lawyer money.
Peace and love, the 13th amendment tells us that slavery is alive and well in America in plain English words. Couple that with the fact that it's mostly us and other so called minorities forfeiting life for industrial profits, and it's easy to see this undeniable actuality.
I haven’t lived in the hood since I was in the 5th grade, my only interaction with the police is Starbucks and traffic violations. Yet I feel affected by this. That’s the definition of empathy. Your problem is my problem.
Meek Mills....."Wow" The Caucasoid Media Alphabet Soups is playing Stupid..... As if Wicked America hasn't a clue of its own Evil Against Melinated People......Forget about it Meek Mills you won't Change A FLEA of Caucasoid Diabolical Ways....Get yourself out of the way you sing a very old song & you are clearly ignorant of Truth.....you should be careful The M.E.D.I.A., i.e.( Muti Ethnic Destruction In America ) you speak too Hates Melinated Males Guts.......
CBS.....you heard the story....you ran it....and you have received compensation for running the story via ads.....but the real question is .....what will you do to spark change in this repeated story by citizens of this country??? How will you use your media power to help black men..... like you do for immagrants??? WE ARE ALREADY CITIZENS!!!....if you do nothing......then you are part of the problem too....use your media power...put your investigators and reporters to work!!!....if you dont then you are failing all of us!!...and there will NEVER be change. Watch the 13th amendment on Netflix...
Yes We have 2 different Americas great point about Police contact, your a minority and an ofgicer walks up angry and checks your id.. once they know your under a jim crow system in parole.. back to jail..
I DONT THINK THE CONSTITUTION MAKERS FORESAW ENGLISH TYPE RULE LIKE THIS!!!
If anyone reading this truly cares about the issues spoken of in this video, come to my channel so I can show you cold hard proof that this government of "ours" is inherently and diabolically corrupt all the while devaluing the lives of others. 🌊🚔🌊🏛💯🙏
The people who keep blaming him for being arrested and "breaking" his probation are stupid and don't know the reality of how sadistic the judges and police are. They will make up a crime against someone and then lie about them failing a drug test just to get more people incarcerated. It's disgusting and nothing but the government kidnapping people.
How do thoses tht don't hv big money associates to support their freedom help to change policies & procedures to mk it more fairly for melanated ppl???...the so called minority...which we clearly are not!...Tell ppl what are the steps to protect thoses tht are locked up, waiting for trail, 1st time getting arrested, dnt hv money for a paid attorney just for being arrested on technicalities...What does those in jail on a wrnly convicted case do????
Good Cop, Bad Cop to warp the black mans mind...all because his own slackness and sin open himself up to that...white man put you in jail and then come give you the key to get out now you sell your soul to him thinkin he do you a favor...when he set you up to lose in the first place
