He got caught in December, and they’re not charging him until now?
This is obviously punishment for speaking nicely about Donald Trump.
Rapper Lil Wayne was charged Tuesday in Florida with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, a federal offense that carries a potential sentence of up to 10 years in prison.
Documents filed in Miami federal court say the rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., had a gun and ammunition on Dec. 23 of last year despite knowing he had the previous felony on his record.
Authorities said the 38-year-old rapper acknowledged owning the gold-plated handgun after his luggage was searched upon arriving in Miami on a private plane. A search warrant, first reported by the Miami Herald at the time, said Carter told investigators the gun was a Father’s Day gift.
Carter’s attorney, Howard Srebnick, said in an email that there are legal questions about whether mere possession of a weapon by a felon not judged to be dangerous fits the definition of a crime.
“Carter is charged with possessing a gold-plated handgun in his luggage on a private plane. There is no allegation that he ever fired it, brandished it, used it or threatened to use it,” Srebnick said. “There is no allegation that he is a dangerous person.”
Investigators also reported finding suspected illegal drugs in the luggage, but Carter has not been charged with a drug offense.
Whatever you think of Lil Wayne, this is very obviously punishment for his having supported the Real President, which he did earlier this year.
Even 50cent came out and said that this was about Wayne’s support for Trump.
Posting to Instagram, 50 said: “Wait a minute, Trump still go 63 days left, call him wayne. Get that fool on the phone. They gonna try to put you in jail for supporting trump.”
Famous people commit crimes all the time and their lawyers make deals for them. That’s the way the justice system works. There was more than one person on that plane, that gun could have belonged to any of them, and so on. There are always ways out of these things.
Along with supporting Trump, years ago Wayne said that racism is a hoax created by whiny black people, and then doubled down when they tried to make him recant.
So they’ve been after this guy for a while.
They’re not going to let anyone be in this system that is emerging unless they are 100% on board with the program, and part of that program is if you’re black, you have to go along with all of this nonsense about how whites are evil and they oppressed you.
Lil Wayne is going to prison for refusing to do that.
