The only cop who testified against Meek Mill has been flagged as a suspect officer.
The Philadelphia Inquirer released a report today that said the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office had put together a list of suspect cops. This list was made to keep an eye on officers, such as Reginald V. Graham who arrested Meek Mill in 2007, who had shown a history of bias behavior and racial discrimination. The exact details as to why Reginald’s name made the list has not been revealed but Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, thinks this revelation will help Meek be released from prison.
“Across the justice system, there are many instances of people that are incarcerated being subsequently let out when police corruption is uncovered,” Joe told Complex. “This would certainly be one of those instances. I mean, there were 800 cases that were dismissed or overturned upon discovery of this group of officers who had been committing crimes, lying about circumstances of arrests, and falsifying documents. One of the officers is the same one who not only arrested Meek but made allegations that Meek has always denied. This is the only one that testified against Meek.”
Joe further noted that Meek is aware of this list and it comes as “no surprise” to him since Meek has “always maintained that he never possessed any drugs and that he never pointed a gun at any police officers.”
Meek is apparently “disappointed” that the District knew this and still allowed Reginald to testify against him with such outlandish allegations.
“[Meek] has a positive outlook on life and understands that he has a lot of people who love and support him—not only celebrities and his team, but members of the community that he’s never even met who have been impacted by the injustice that Meek and others have suffered,” Joe explained.
