Rally protesting Meek Mill's prison sentence to be held Monday

Rally protesting Meek Mill's prison sentence to be held Monday”

Last week, Meek Mill was sentenced to two to four years in prison for violating his probation.

The rally is going down today in Philadelphia outside the Criminal Justice Center at 13th and Filbert Streets.

Tacopina says Meek will also be applying to Pennsylvania's Board of Pardons. but we're told that's more of a Hail Mary because it's normally a 3-year process at least. Both the D.A. and the prosecution recommended no jail time in the case.

At the rally in Philly on Monday, organizers will "address the inequities of the criminal justice system for people of color, from arrest to sentencing".

There's a petition circulating, calling for the BOP and Governor Tom Wolf to have Meek's "unjust prison sentence remedied" - which is now 300,000 strong - it probably won't help much.

It continues, "More than just a celebrity or rapper, Meek Mill has been a powerful voice in the community for our youth". "I stand for the men and women that have been disenfranchised by the inept justice system in Philadelphia".

See the flyer, which was shared by several of Meek's hip-hop peers, below.
