I am not saying this story does not deserve attention what I am saying that BMF is not the first or last. Back in the early 80s in Detroit there was group called Young Boys Inc, that utilized young black men under the age of 18 to peddal drugs on the streets of Detroit and they too was a quarter of billion dollar drug business and it was proven that they were responsible for giving Detroit the name the Murder Capital City of the World Murder. As I have stated before I do not condone murder or anyone who is responsible or commits a the taking of another's life and my prayers go out to Prince's mother and I could not imagine how she feels about losing her child to something so senseless, what I am saying is that you have to hold everyone accountable, not just Meech but every and anyone who allowed this to go on for so long. Meech is a blood relative of mines and while I will love him, he and only he will have to deal with the way of life he has created for himself. If the story is going to reported, then report is accurately, as I stated before these goes way deeper than BMF.
I just finished your podcast and I am a female who referenced Demetrius sending the kids to college not the guy who is from Detroit. As I stated tell Mara to go Detroit and she will get a real accurate story. And reference all of my posts.
I am currently listening to your podcast and why Mara has not written any retractions or correction to her story. Why hasn't Mara when to the streets of Southwest Detroit to get the real story. All your resources are based on the what happened in Atlanta. Did you ever question why the indictments were handed down in Detroit and not Atlanta. Did you ever do a title search to see if Meech was ever an owner of the Club Babylon or investor. To me this was just bad reporting because you did not make it accurate, if you cannot report fully do not report it half-ass. You never stated that these are just allegations and we are just reporting. There have been court dates and none of these witnesses have been presented to testify that Meech or Terry are drug dealers. Mara I am curious to know what court documents you have reviewed and if so why was these documents not referenced and in which court jurisdiction did you review these documents and if so why were you privy to see these documents? To say that Jacob the Jeweler is not revelant, his story is very revelant and I stated how you can state this an accurate story when certain aspects of a story is not revelant as I stated this is half-ass reporting.
To "Well you Did" I am a blood relative of Meech and Terry and I may not condone alot of there actions, and it nice to see that people are showing them love despite whatever their fate maybe, And yes anyone who showed them love was considered a sister or brother what is the harm in that. I just think that everyone should be fair and objective about this. Are we taking the time and effort to blog and comment on stories regarding Iraq and how many young men under the age of 25 are being killed. Are we protesting and blogging about the senseless killing of the black male that was gunned down on his wedding day in New York by the NYPD. These are stories that matter and require our attention. I love my cousins with all my heart but they will have to deal with cards that are dealt in there lives and play them the best way they can and remeber that they have no control over there destiny.
Even sources can be incorrect and just because it came from an attorney or government official does not necessarily mean that it is correct. No real evidence against Demetrius or Terry has been presented, no witnesses have been presented at any hearings, and just because drugs were found at homes that alledgely belonged to them does not mean they were aware of what was going on and never ever has Terry or Demetrius been caught with drugs. My question is why the writer did not touch on the story about Jacob the Jeweler and his connection to BMF or P Diddy (or whatever the hell is name is these days)and his real connection with BMF and how Bad Boy Records really came into to the fore front, now that would be a interesting story.
Atlanta chick what I was conveying was in the form of a question, drugs, firearms, and illegal human trafficking can happen and if anyone believe that the government has no knowledge of this then we all of us are nieve. The govt was aware that BMF was smuggling drugs and they continue to allow this over a ten year period and we are talking a large quantity with a street value of over $270 million dollars. To TSPEC everyone is entitled to their opinion but you cannot say that Meech will die in prison or never walk the streets again only a higher being knows his fate and only Meech will have to answer to what he has done on his judgement day.
Anuk and Know both sides, I agree totally, I grew up with Meech in southwest detroit but you never hear the good that Meech has contributed. Yes he has contributed some good, just like Bill Gates has pledged a billon dollars over the next 20 years to the NAACP for education, Meech is currently sending over 50 kids who are not related to him to college, (tuition and expenses paid up front) one who is currently a senior in Harvard right now, and the majority are attending Ivy Leagues and Big Ten universities. As Anuk stated Meech did not bring the drugs and it funny how easily one person get so much drugs into U.S without ever being caught especially with all the high tech survelliance our country has and if the government as they state has been investigating BMF over ten years why did the government allow BMF to flood our streets in the first place. The murder I do not condone, but Meech has never been charged or identifed as a triggerman in any murders and you cannot hold him accountable for another actions, just like no one is holding the government accountable for letting BMF flood the streets of drugs for over ten years. It was only when Meech became flamboyant did the government have a problem with him. Think about it.
