Meek Mill Criticizes The Texas Court For Disregarding Black Life

Meek Mill is raising awareness of a terrifying case coming out of Texas. A black man in Texas was given a 70-year prison term this week. If the crime were horrific, then this might make sense. However, Larry Pearson, 36, was punished for allegedly spitting on police. Many people have expressed outrage at the sentence, claiming it is racist.

Others have claimed that his history of violence justifies a lengthy sentence. However, there is more to the story than spitting, as there almost always is. Larry Pearson was detained in May 2022 due to a call to the police from a victim of alleged domestic abuse. According to the victim, Pearson allegedly struck the victim several times and made a gun claim. Later, it was discovered that the weapon was an airsoft gun.

When told to stop, Pearson’s behavior deteriorated, and after being taken into custody, he began to kick the police car’s doors and spit at the officers. When he got to the Lubbock County Detention Center, he kept spitting at the guards. Still, 70 years is insane for a misdemeanor, as Meek Mill later noted in a tweet. Meek used his Twitter to protest the harsh sentence after hearing the news.
