Reverend Al Sharpton visits rapper Meek Mill in prison

NATION-NOW     Rev. Al Sharpton Meek Mill represents victims of the justice system     
       Rev. Al Sharpton says he met with Meek Mill

Recall that Meek Mill was sentenced to 2-4 years in prison on November 6 for probation violations.

Meek Mill's recent incarceration has been viewed by many in the hip-hop community as an utter farce, yet it has served to raise attention to the inconsistencies of the criminal justice system.

"I gave you break after break, and you basically just thumbed your nose at this court", she said to Mill during sentencing, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. It's made even stranger once you factor in the seeming personal feud between Meek and his judge, Genece Brinkley, which has already been reported on at great length.

Taking exception to some portions of Sharma's petition, the court said it was "unwarranted and scurrilous". The ban by Bihar, ruled by a JD-U-BJP coalition, follows that by BJP ruled Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.

The 30-year-old Philadelphia native was sentenced this month to two to four years in prison for violating probation on a roughly decade-old gun and drug case. He also was recently arrested two times - once in St. Louis for a fight in an airport where serious charges against him were later dropped and the other for reckless driving in New York City. TMZ reports that judge Genece Brinkley was ordered by a higher court to hold the hearing "without further delay" in a reuling over Mill's attempt to get his prison time tossed. He said Mill seemed "very strong, determined and not bitter" and Mill told him let people know this case is not about him, but about everyone.

Mill's sentencing sparked outrage on social media, which spawned hashtag #FreeMeekMill and #Justice4Meek. While they denied that request, they ordered Brinkley to provide the hearing.
