KODAK BLACK PLEADS GUILTY IN FEDERAL GUN CASE

Kodak Black

11:42 AM PT — According to the plea agreement — obtained by TMZ — prosecutors say they’ll push for a lighter sentence than the maximum because Kodak has been cooperative.

11:28 AM PT — Kodak pled guilty to 2 counts of knowingly making a false and fictitious written statement in connection with the acquisition of a firearm. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison followed by 3 years of supervised release.

The rapper just did about face and plead guilty for lying on his government gun licence saying that he did not have a case pending for a crime that can land him in jail for more than one year. The rapper confess to the crime of knowingly lying on his government application for a gun.

It amazing how Hip-Hop has drop to such a low to hav people like Kodak Black and 69 at the top of the charts when they are known to brake the law in such away that they did

If you will remember 69 gun arrest that send him to prison. This just a long line of people that is in the rap industry that cannot control there action and do not relies they ar no longer in the streets fighting for there lives.You have to ask yourselves why don’t these people get body guards if he would have thought of that and he makes millions in the rap industry it should be easy to get a body guard ,right? I mean he would not have to get that gun that land him in jail for 10 years and that exacly what he got from a judge for pleading guilty for falsely saying he did not have no charges against the rapper..

The Kodak Black has been in jail since may because the judge have ruled that Kodak Black was a danger to the community, His sentencing is coming in Sept13 but his lawyer said that he might get 10 years

Can these rappers today tell the deference between being in the streets and there conduct they should have when you make it out of the streets. The greatest of rappers know this but these new rappers seem not to understand the difference and make a beautiful thing like Hip- Hop in to something that need to be thrown in the trash when it really should not be that way because Hip Hop has taken over the world. But in my heart i do believe they are trying to put an end to Hip Hop by implementing people like 69 and Kodak Black into the mainstream Hip Hop Culture,

The charge that Kodak Black lied for on his application for a gun was when he beat up an under age female and those charges are still pending

NYC to Award $9.75 Million to Black Man Who Spent 30 Years in Prison For Crimes He Didn’t Commit

New York, NY — Mark Denny, a man who was wrongly imprisoned for almost 30 years for a rape and robbery he didn’t commit, has been awarded a $9.75 million settlement from the city of New York. In exchange, Denny had to surrender his right to file a potential $50 million lawsuit against the city and the NYPD that would have claimed that police officers framed him.In December 1987, then-17-year old Denny was one of the four men accused of robbery at a Burger King in Brooklyn and rape of an 18-year old female employee. In February 1989, he was convicted of rape, sodomy, robbery, and coercion charges and was sentenced to up to 57 years in prison.

Denny has always maintained his innocence until he was finally exonerated in December 2017. An investigation by the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office determined he did not commit the crime. The Innocence Project reached out to the Kings County District Attorney’s Conviction Review Unit, which further proved that Denny wasn’t at Burger King at the time of the incident.

Moreover, in March 2018, Denny filed a “notice of claim” alleging that he was “targeted and framed” by more than a dozen NYPD detectives investigating the crime.

According to the claim, the detectives allegedly fabricated evidence against him and refused to confirm his alibi. It also accuses them of “intentionally refusing to investigate other obvious leads” as they failed to immediately test hair, fingernail scrapings and other forensic evidence collected from the scene after the crime.

Denny alleges in the claim that detectives made “false representation” and used “outright suggestion to induce” the victim, who was blindfolded during most of the attack, to identify him “at a live lineup after she failed to identify [him] in a photo lineup… as one of the perpetrators.”

It also claims Denny “has suffered, and continues to suffer, severe and ongoing damages,” including “physical and emotional pain and suffering, physical sickness… loss of familial relationships,” loss of income and damage to his reputation.

To avoid a potential $50 million lawsuit, Comptroller Scott Stringer discreetly agreed to approve paying Denny a $9.75 million settlement. On May 24, Denny signed on “general release” papers, agreeing not to sue the city and hold it liable for his arrest and incarceration.

“It was in the best interest of the city to settle pre-litigation,” said Stringer spokeswoman Hazel Crampton-Hays.

Family Sues Mississippi Jail That Has A Record Of Suspicious Black Inmate Death 2/23/2019

Harvey Hill was one of three inmates who died at the jail in 2018 under suspicious circumstances.

AMississippi jail finds itself, again, in the spotlight over the death of a Black inmate under suspicious circumstances.

Attorneys representing the family of Harvey Hill, who died nine months ago at the Madison County jail, announced on Tuesday that they filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the sheriff and other officials, the Clarion-Ledger reported.

Hill was arrested for trespassing on May 6 and died in custody one day later.

Part of the family’s frustration is that after nine months they still have no official answers about the exact cause of Hill’s death. They don’t believe that Hill, 36, died from possible cardiac arrest, as they were told. The family believes he died after jail guards “brutally” beat him.

“That is totally unacceptable,” attorney Carlos Moore said, noting that the family still has not received an official autopsy report. “Had the results been in the county’s favor, they would have released them by now.”

Hill’s death was one of three such deaths at the jail in 2018, in which families suspect foul play. Larry Thompson, 51, died three days after his release from the jail in November. And in December, Lanekia Michelle Brown, 37, was four weeks pregnant when she was reportedly found dead in her jail cell.

The lawsuit accuses the jail guards of beating and pepper-spraying Hill while he was handcuffed because he failed to show proper respect to one of the guards. They allegedly returned Hill without medical care to his cell, where he was found dead.

In Brown’s case, she was reportedly discovered dead in her cell when a nurse went to check on her after she had complained about having stomach pains, according to the official account. Brown’s mother said she was not allowed to see her daughter’s remains in the days after her death. She demanded answers but received no explanation about how she died.

Moore, who is also representing Brown’s family, said at a news conference in January that he was looking into whether Brown was given proper medical care. He suspected that jail officials discriminated against her.

Thompson’s family said he was healthy when he walked into the jail but was nearly unconscious and unable to walk when he was released. While incarcerated, Thompson called home and said he had been beaten, his son recalled. The family said witnesses at the prison also told them that jail officials had assaulted Thompson. They too are demanding answers.

Immigrants are 22 percent of federal prison population

A stunning 22 percent of inmates in the federal prison population are immigrants who have either already been deemed to be in the country illegally or who the government is looking to put in deportation proceedings, the administration said Tuesday.

President Trump requested the numbers as part of his initial immigration executive orders.

The 22 percent is much higher than the population of foreign-born in the U.S. as a whole, which is about 13.5 percent.

All told, the government counted more than 42,000 aliens in federal prisons as of June 24.

About 47 percent already face final deportation orders, making them illegal immigrants, and 3 percent are currently in immigration courts facing deportation proceedings.

Almost all of the rest are being probed by federal agents looking to deport them.

Immigrants who commit serious crimes, even if they once had legal status, can have that status revoked and can be subject to deportation, which explains the high number of cases where an alien is still being probed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The U.S. Marshal Service, meanwhile, is holding about 12,000 “self-reporting” aliens, and almost all of them have already been ordered deported.

Government officials said they’re still working to try to collect information on the foreign-born population in state and local prisons and jails.

Women Complain Of Humiliating, Illegal Strip Searches In San Francisco Jail

The world is getting out of hand and no one is getting justice slowly but surely

Women incarcerated in a San Francisco jail say they were forced to strip naked in front of male deputies, in violation of state law, according to complaints released by the San Francisco public defender’s office.

In California, strip searches of inmates must be conducted in an area with privacy, and with no one of the opposite sex within sight. 

Jeff Adachi, San Francisco’s public defender, filed a formal complaint with the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department in January after hearing reports from women about the searches. 

His office collected the stories of 16 women who said they experienced inappropriate strip searches inside County Jail No. 2, which is the only jail in San Francisco city that houses women. About 90 percent of the women held there have yet to be convicted of a crime, Adachi said.

“While strip searches are allowed in a jail or prison setting, they can’t be arbitrarily carried out or carried out in a way that is unreasonable, without any basis,” he told HuffPost. “Based on the reports that we were receiving, the grounds for the strip searches were questionable and the way they were being performed ― with male guards in eyeshot and other inappropriate conduct by the deputies ― raised some red flags for us.”

At least 12 women reported that they were strip-searched in locations where they were visible to male deputies. Most of them asked to withhold their names from the formal complaint due to fear of retaliation. 

One woman described how she was asked to get naked, squat, cough and lift up both breasts within eyesight of several male guards and other female inmates. She reported making eye contact with a male deputy during the search. Afterward, she told a lawyer, the deputy informed her and other inmates that he didn’t have a girlfriend and that he found some of them attractive.

Another woman reported that she was searched next to a toilet containing unflushed blood, urine and feces. She worried that being strip-searched near an open door allowed for the jail cameras to film her naked body.

“Our concern is that the sheriff’s department does not appear to be following a consistent protocol in conducting these strip searches,” Adachi said. “Our clients felt like their privacy, although limited because they are in custody, was being violated.”

Many women said they found the strip searches distressing, using words such as “especially degrading,” “humiliating,” “violating” and “unusual.”

San Francisco Sheriff Vicki Hennessy has launched an investigation into the allegations.

Women in jail are the fastest-growing segment of America’s incarcerated population. They are overwhelmingly poor and low-income, and have high rates of trauma, mental and physical illness and histories of substance abuse, according to a 2016 report.

Black Man Found Hanging In The Same Jail Where Sandra Bland Died

The Waller County Jail was supposed to implement reforms after Bland’s death.

An African-American inmate was recently found dead after apparently hanging himself in the same Texas jail where Sandra Bland also died in 2015, the Houston Chronicle reported. Authorities at the Waller County jail said on Wednesday that Evan Lyndell Parker, 34, attempted suicide on Jan. 25 and died two days later in a hospital.

Parker was accused of killing a 64-year-old co-worker on Jan. 9, according to the Waller County Sheriff’s Office. He was booked into the jail the next day on charges of murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The Waller County District Attorney stated that it was unclear what led to Parker to attempt to kill himself.

“All outside agency investigations that include the Texas Rangers and Texas Commission on Jail Standards are pending along with autopsy results,” Sheriff R. Glenn Smith said in a statement posted on Facebook.

Bland’s death prompted police reforms that could have prevented Parker’s death. For one thing, face-to-face cell inspections were supposed to occur more frequently after she died. The Chronicle noted that Parker died a month after inspectors found that the jailers failed to meet standards for observing prisoners.

Bland was found hanging in her cell on July 13, 2015, three days after being arrested during a traffic stop. Although her death was ruled a suicide, her family members and activists disputed the cause of death and said racial violence was involved. Her family settled a wrongful death lawsuit for $1.9 million with Waller County officials and the state trooper who arrested Bland near Prairie View A & M University.

It was unclear if foul play was somehow involved in Parker’s death.

“All I can say is, it’s extremely unfortunate when it happens,” Waller County Judge Trey Duhon said. “Even with the best of precautions, it is always possible that somebody intent on taking their life could be successful. All we can do is make sure we meet guidelines and do the routine checks. At this point, it looks like that was done.”

Duhon also rejected criticism from inmate advocates who raised questions about standards at the jail.

“They’re certainly entitled to their opinions, but anybody who wants to come down to our jail and see all the changes and processes we’ve made since 2015 is welcome to do that,” Duhon added.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Plead guilty

Tekashi 6ix9ine pleads guiltry of robbing people even killing people and setting up people.

What is going on in the rap game that this man had everything that he would throw everything away like this. To become a rap artist you suppose to leave that alone once you get famous . But this man kept going it like he was still in the street. Now he is about to take the walk of shame. 69 is going to do alot of time behind these charges and it is going to be a long time till he sees the light of day again.

Fat Joe warned this man to get out of the streets but this man had alot of elements around him stearing him in the wrong direction. That is what happens when you spend to much time in the hood, Growing up when i got to the age that i can think for myself i came up out of the streets and tried to make something out of my life. This man done that and more and just threw it all away.

The Feds was on 69 for years and he did not know gather a case on 69. Soon as the trial came up and when the FEDS threw all this at him he decided to plead guilty on all charges just not to spent the rest of his life in jail.

It is sad to see anyone that came out of poverty and get his or her name out there and make alot of money just to see them throw it away like that. But you have some stupid idiots who think there still in the street destroy there life and they had everything that a young kid in can ever want.

69 reminds me of the rap legend DMX only DMX did not go down like this idiot.

What is happening to rap music? They used to just talk about doing crime to they are doing crime because you are trying to keep it real. You suppose to leave that life and ever person that is about that life and elevate yourself to superstar status. I fear for Hip-Hop not to long ago a governor was talking about doing away with the culture all together because of the violent material it conveys. But if we have a few move of DMX’S 69’s iam wondering could they be right about doing so?

This man have ratted out so many of his gang friends you have to wonder if 69 will even survive his term in jail with that no snitch thang they have in the hood.

69 girl friend at this time is fearing for her life because she believes 69 blood gang might come after her. Its is totally nuts what is going on around this man. But he will do alot of time for setting people up and guns as well as murder
