2008 – Robert Rihmeek “Meek Mill” Williams is arrested for illegally possessing a firearm (you must have a license in PA) assaulting the police. Meek is convicted for drug dealing and gun possession.
Two Black police officers gave statements that Meek chased them down with his gun and tried to kill them. Meek never shot at them (think about that), and received two swollen eyes, lips, and a ripped out braid upon arrest.
2008 – Meek is sentenced to 11-23 months of incarceration. (1 days shy of 2 years at the most IN prison).
2009 – Meek is released under a 60 month (5 year) parole agreement. (if no violation, 5 years OUT of prison but still a prisoner.)
2012 – First violation in December for violating Judge Brinkley’s order to stop scheduling performances as of Nov. 16 so that Meek could reinstate his travel permit.
2013 – Second violation in May for failure to report travel plans as required and social media postings that resulted in death threats to the judge, Assistant District Attorney (ADA) and probation officer assigned his case.
He was sentenced to etiquette classes with an August 2013 completion deadline date.
2014 – Probation revoked in July. Sentenced to 3 – 6 months IN prison
2014 – Meek released in December, 5 months after turning himself in.
2015 – Another Violation for continuous travel without permit. Ordered NOT to work or perform until sentencing in February.
2016 – Meek is sentenced to 90 days (3 months) house arrest and 6 more years (72 months) of probation.
2016 – Starting March 1, Meek put his 90 days towards visiting schools, assisting with the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, taking part in motivational speeches, and visiting the homeless.
2016 – In June, Meek is given an extra 8 days for wrong Community Service completed.
Judge Brinkley wanted him to complete 90 days of community service with the homeless, Habitat for Humanity, senior citizens, or veterans. 98 days total house arrest.
2017 – In March, Meek was arrested for assault on St. Louis International Airport employee. The charges were subsequently dropped.
2017 – In August, Meek was arrested in New York after he was seen on Instagram the day before doing wheelies on bikes and quads while riding through the 34th precinct without a helmet, violating traffic laws and posing a danger to the community. The charges are misdemeanors.
Only Meek was arrested despite there being at least 4 other helmet-less riders in the social media video. Oh, and they were at a charity event for the Dyckman Basketball Clinic. 22 police cars with a minimum of 22 officers took the task of arresting him. Think about that.
2017 – In November, Philadelphia Judge Genece Brinkley sentences Meek to 2 – 4 years (24 – 48 months) for travel and drug violation. The prosecutors did NOT recommend this.
All I can say is Meek’s lawyer Joe Tacopina is securing bags left and right.
Here’s what really matters, the music. Why is Meek famous? Because he makes tracks like these. He says things like “I was on that corner/tryna get my coins up, coppers run up on us/ and we turn to Jackie Joyner
How poignant is this? If conspiracies could be formed – Is meek paying for his insubordination with public humiliation? I mean, if he was talking that death to other black men shit, would they care?
