Governor of Pennsylvania Rallies for Meek Mill


This week Philly rapper Meek Mill was sentenced to 2 to 4 years in prison for violating his probation on a 10-year-old case [click here if you missed that].

Now the governor of Pennsylvania is asking the judge to reevaluate the harsh sentence...

From Billboard
On Tuesday night (Nov. 7), Tom Wolf, Governor of Pennsylvania, rallied behind the Philly star after posting a lengthy petition on Change.org, demanding that Meek's sentence be reevaluated.
"Meek Mill has been a powerful voice in the community for our youth," writes Wolf. "He has made positive contributions to many communities and programs, dedicating time and money to the cultivation of our youth and neighborhoods; even through his own adversities. He has continued to be dedicated and shown an immaculate work ethic, even at times when the system tried to prevent him from being able to tour, which is how he makes a living."

Governor of Pennsylvania doesn't have better things to do with his time? Is this what the tax paying citizens are paying for? How about using that time and effort to improve the ghetto areas around Temple University. Such a fine institution near a raggedy, rundown place. FIX THAT GOVERNOR.

The Governor knows that Judge was pissed with Meek Mill. It's my understanding the Judge not only wanted a shout out from Meek, she also wanted him to sign with her friend. If these rumors are true, that is one foul Judge. It warrants an investigation. Not saying Meek should go free, just look into the rumors.

That Governor of Pennsylvania sound like a damn groupie. Does he not have better things to do for the community? I was listening to the Tom Joyner morning show this morning some idiot was not there making Meek out to be this civil rights activist type, all he could do was blame the judge and system. At no time did accountability on Meeks part was spoken about. The blind allegiance to these brain dead rappers is hilarious, this fool was calling for social media to come to Meeks defense, because we black folks was wronged and we need to fight this. Mr. Wolf need to go sit his selected outraged ass down somewhere and find something worthwhile to do with his tenor in office. Does he come to the defense of the round the way Jamal, and Shaniqua when they violate parole, or is that only reserved for "celebrities"

Good, it's good he has actual powerful people rallying for him instead of just these celebrity puppets.
Something has to be done about this blatant travesty and misuse of the "justice" system.

Yep because Meek Mill has money. I wonder how long will it take for us to realize color has little to do with shit anymore. His rich friends came out in support. That same support is what's missing for middle and lower class blacks. They only give a fuck about us when they fuck up and need the "community" for support. And we come running like idiots. That Gov can do that but can't do shit to combat the harsh inner city conditions...Yeah ol

The governor ain't say a damn thing about Meek Mill. If you click the link to the article, it clearly says that the petition is calling for the governor to intervene and reevaluate the case. This post is misquoting the original writer and y'all look goofy bashing these man with incorrect ass information. lol

Wow misinformation, a new low for Live Nation (Jay Z), Snitch or whomever is spreading these lies. This Governor is not involved - someone is starting a petition. Juvenile way to get what one wants ...

I think the governor sees an unjust action being taken. Although Meek isn't John Q Public, if the judge can railroad him, she'll do the same for any of us. I'm not a Meek fan but receiving 2 years for touring, which is how you make a living is excessive. Smoking weed on probation usual garners days in the county jail, not years in prison. The punishment doesn't fit the crime.

Probation violated. The end. What the hell ya'll want? He knew he wasn't supposed to f up, and he did--knowingly. No sympathy for stupid, amongst my own people especially. We gotta understand this system is rigged against us from the get.

SELF HATE IS REAL said...

Meek railroaded himself. Again, these are lies. No government offfical can interfere with a judges decision. If this shit was true when he was initially placed on parole, his case would have been thrown out on appeal. Roc Nation fucked up when it failed to fully vet the situation. Meek, get a new lawyer.

Some you people are complete morons. This is bigger than Meek. The governor should use his bully pulpit to speak of this injustice. This happens everyday to young black men. The man was sentenced to 5 years probation which should have ended in 2013, yet this judge still has him on probation in 2017. Then she violated him while the prosecution didn't push for it. Lets start criminal justice reform anyway we can.
