Knight who has an erstwhile criminal record of assault with a lethal weapon may be in the locker for up to 30 years. As for Katt Williams, he is going to be in the slammer for seven years. At least one million dollars worth of bail money will be decided for Knight while in case of Williams it will be $75,000. Suge got nabbed in Sin City (Las Vegas).
The Beverly Hills Police Department is currently looking into the situation. Spokespersons for both criminals were not immediately available for commenting on the matter. Knight is the founder of Death Row Records and he is the one who introduced the world to such men as Snoop Doggy Dogg and the late Tupac Shakur. In fact, Knight was in the car in which Tupac got shot way back in the mid 90s. Knight was in jail for quite some time after that incident.
He was later on left high and dry by several rappers including Dr Dre and Snoop. Furthermore, his constant altercations with other enemy rappers caused his record company to file for bankruptcy in 2006. According to Rollingstone, the camera that Suge and Katt stole belonged to a female photographer. The two have been in trouble before too and that too many times in a row. They have been guilty of various assaults on others and have had parking issues such as stopping their cars next to a fire hydrant.
Way back in August, Knight got six bullets fired into his abs by some hoodlum at a party in LA. The chaos that ensued is too much to even begin to describe. People started screaming, yelling and shouting. There was general pandemonium. There were shattered shards on the floor and the place was a mess.
"People were screaming and yelling and most ran out immediately," a witness to the scene said. "The floor was covered with glass from everyone dropping their drinks." However, the the real miracle was that Suge left the place without anyone else’s assistance and later on took the whole matter lightly.
According to Suge, the one thing that his pop had taught him was that you had to finish the business you started. So if he walked into a place and got hit by six bullets in the stomach, you had to calmly walk out and go some place where the wounds would get healed.
"One thing my father always taught me, no matter what it is, you never give up, you never quit if you start something," Knight said. "When you walk in a place, you walk in one way and no matter what goes on, you leave the same — as a man. I was shot, and I wanted to make sure I got to the right place to patch some of these holes up." The female photographer who was chased by both Katt and Knight incurred minor injuries in the process.
Meanwhile, according to LATimes, a man and woman who were with them at the moment are still missing and the police are searching high and low for them. Like it was previously stated, this is not the first time that both men have been involved in crimes of a petty nature. Their misdemeanors and felonies are so many that they could fill a thick register.
It has been said that when Black Americans commit crimes there is a bias in the police department in accordance with which they are more ready to arrest them. Although there might be some truth to this allegation on White America, the fact of the matter is that crime knows no racial barriers. The only difference is that the rich commit white collar crimes such as the surreptitious nicking of a ballpoint from the office premises or the embezzlement of a huge amount of funds from the bank. The poor commit crimes of passion and also have a tendency to break the law out of sheer necessity.
Actually when you see it from a certain perspective, the multinational corporations are the biggest criminals in today’s world. They are the most careless and heedless agents in case of human lives and welfare. The brutal rape of the planet and the ruthless use of resources like there was no tomorrow prove this dictum. So, what is a stolen camera compared to the crimes of the execs of today’s MNCs?
