Boosie Stuck Behind Bars?

Boosie Badazz is blaming a prosecutor and declaring racism to be at work as he struggles to get out of jail for multiple gun-charges

Boosie Badazz has not been having grand week, to say the least.

On Tuesday (June 20th), the Baton Rouge artist had his bond request approved for $50k, but this decision is being challenged by federal prosecutors that wish to keep him custody.

All of this follows Boosie having been arrested and put behind bars last week after having just exited a courtroom due to a gun case he had being dismissed by a judge. He was struck with new charges, including felony possession of a firearm and the transportation of firearms across highways, that can attributed to Boosie posting an Instagram Live presenting him with a gun. Such an act is a violation of federal law, as Boosie (a convicted-felon), is barred from owning a firearm.

Prosecutors had appealed a judge's decision to grant Boosie bond and were denied once already, but a second-attempt at appealing the motion has compelled Boosie to angrily-respond on Twitter this past Wednesday (June 21st) and call out one of the prosecutors, Michael Wheat.

"After the judge has granted me a bond, and I paid my full cash amount the prosecution refuse to respect the judges decision to let me go," Boosie declared. "They showed no evidence of me being a flight risk or a danger to the community."

Continuing: "The prosecutor Mr. wheat looked at me singing Wipe Me Down, wiped his shoulders and shook his head with a look of evil in his eyes. This is total misconduct from a prosecutor. He is racist and has evil intentions. Now they filed an appeal asking another judge to keep me in prison."

The "Mop Wit It" rapper then issued a call to action, pleading for San Diego inhabitants to show up on Thursday (June 22nd) at the court where the decision on his bond is to be settled and support him, as well as calling on "prayer warriors" around the world to for Wheat to be removed from his case.

While racial-bias in the criminal-justice system should not be news to anyone, there may be reason to be skeptical of Boosie's claims of one of the individuals prosecuting him as being racist simply based off of his claims of "seeing evil" in Wheat's eyes. Whether or not such comments will have any effect on the judge's decision on a bond for the Louisiana rapper is unclear,

Boosie certainly does not seem to deny that he had done anything wrong, as evidenced by him apologizing to his children on Twitter following his arrest. "I wanna take this time to apologize to my kids. I’m sorry and I love y’all forever," he tweeted.
