Meek-Mill-Thanksgiving-Karen-Civil

Meek Mill lost his civil suit against the Philadelphia Police Department.

Meek was suing the PPD for lost wages after a 2012 arrest

Police arrested the rapper after accusations of drug use on his tour bus. Meek claims the arrest was racially motivated and sued for $400,000 in lost income and emotional distress.

The jury sided with the defendants, Andre Boyer and Officer Alvin Outlaw claiming that they didn’t violate his Fourth Amendment laws.

Meek spoke to reporters after the ruling.

“They ain’t from where I’m from,” the rapper said. “I (don’t) really expect them to understand what I go through. I respect their decision though.”

He also said to reporters that Philly police constantly abuse their authority against black people.

“In neighborhoods like where I come from, four black males in a car … we’re always being asked to be searched,” Mill testified Monday. “All I was doing that night was going to work and doing what I had to do.”

Boyer was fired after lying about another traffic stop. His rap sheet also included more civil complaints than any other officer in the case.

Meek tweeted his thoughts after leaving court on Thursday.

“I’m not surprised…Just let me move away from here …I just wanna get this money..And take care of my family! I sued they said I’m wrong.”
