Suge Knight is still behind bars since his July 2015 arrest for reportedly injuring two men and killing one with his Ford F-150 Raptor truck in Compton, California.
The former Death Row founder still awaits trial for the murder since he’s unable to meet the $10 million bail. Unfortunately for Suge, his trial was delayed yet again on Wednesday, which caused his son to speak out about his dad allegedly being mistreated. According to the New York Daily News, Suge Jacob Knight said that the experience his father is having in jail has been “extreme,” and that law officials are “treating him like a mass murderer.”
He continued, “Going in today and hearing my dad ask to be treated like a regular inmate, it actually hurt me. Why does he even have to ask for that? I feel like it’s taking time away from his actual case.” Reports say that Knight is solely allowed to speak with his lawyer, and has yet to see his children. Suge Jr. continued expressing his outrage on social media.
Im grateful to see my dad this morning, but it hurt me to see him get neglected right infront of my face. Im distugsted that these people take an oath to serve justice but do the exact opposite. I havent seen or heard this mans voice in two years! When we will they view him as a human? How come the man who turned himeslef in on a "Hit and Run" case (Which is really a Self Defense Case) gets mistreated more than the Rapist or a serial killer? I know sin is sin but what about mercy? I dont know anybody who can sit in solitary confinement for two years and not speak to, nor choose his own lawyer. When will they let him get the best chance to defend himself. This court session was mostly of my dad asking for a fair shot, while The prosecutor rushes the judge to end the session because she has alot to do today. Bs. They even had the officer block my dads view to see me! I really need those that acutally support and who has a heart to reach out. I have great news but i need justice to be served. #FREESUGE #FREEMYDAD
