  1. Welcome back Meek. Now if we can only find a way to get alllllllll the non famous brothers and sisters unjustly incarcerated

    • That’s what there working on. Because of Meek case and the revelation that the cop and cops associated with the list of corrupt cops there reviewing all the cases. There have been some already who cases were dismissed or overturned. So it’s happening thanks to Meek story.

  2. Black people have it rough as hell in America. Meek has money and still went thru it. Wow

    • Malevolent Elephant judge was black, so that must hurt most of you fans knowing a powerful successful black woman had power over a young black man

    • Puro Parii her color is irrelevant because she works for and represents a white power structure and is well compensated to do so. Racism against African Americans is much more systemic than it is individual….

  3. I guess this is great news we still all slaves to america aslong as u have a socail number and a birth ticket

  4. Glad he is home, but he needs to stay out of any clubs, or around anyone, because they are watching his every move. Hopefully, this corrupt cop is charged, and every case this cop has touched, is looked at again. SMH!

  5. Blessing. I’m glad you’re free. I wish I could say the same for My son. The system is so fucked up. Still, I will continue to take video visit, and phone calls, I really need to hug my son. God Plan.
