Meek Mill Civil-Rights Lawsuit Against Philly Police Department Under Way (Details)
When Hurricane Sandy happened back in 2012, a lot of airports closed down and flights was cancelled. This forced the hand of Meek Mill who had a show to do in Atlanta. Instead of taking the L and canceling his appearance, with good reason, Meek made the extra effort and booked a private jet from Philly to Atlanta trying to make his gig. That didn’t go down like he planned unfortunately. Meek car was pulled over by city police where Meek and his people was arrested.
Meek testified yesterday (April 28th) in the first day of his case. Here’s what Meek Mill had to say about that night:
In neighborhoods like where I come from, four black males in a car, … we’re always being asked to be searched. All I was doing that night was going to work and doing what I had to do.
The officers claimed that their dogs smelled weed in the car but when the car was eventually searched, no drugs was found. It also should be noted that the lead police officer of the arrest is no longer with the department.
At the police station one officer took a picture of Meek Mill in handcuffs which eventually circulated all over the internet. Another female officer also took a picture and posted to her Instagram according to Meek lawsuit.
