Lil Wayne will turn himself in to police sometime today to begin his one year prison sentence after being convicted of a shocking crime spree that began three years ago. (WARNING: the following summary from MTV contains graphic details.)
In 2007, Lil Wayne was arrested for gun possession following his first headlining performance in Manhattan at the Beacon Theater.
Police did not find a weapon on the rapper when his tour bus was searched. Rather, the gun — registered to his manager — was in a bag located near the rapper.
Fantastic. The government is locking up a respected artist with no history of violence for an entire year because he was close to a legally registered gun. Awesome. This country really sucks lately. We used to be so cool. What the hell happened to us? Now we have 8 billion laws because 5 percent of the population are either dickheads or can’t get their shit together. Lil Wayne broke a law which is only a law because they made it a law. He didn’t hurt anyone, he didn’t steal anything, he didn’t rob anyone, and he never has, he just broke the rule that our shitty busy-body government made up because someone else did those things. And we have thousands of stupid laws like that. My car is covered with bright yellow stickers because my baby could be killed if I attach the safety seat wrong. Except I don’t have a baby. I hate babies. If I did have a baby and we were going on a car ride I would tie it to the bumper regardless of how the stickers felt about it. I’m not part of this. I’m not the problem, so why am I being treated like I am? Jesus Fucking Christ. It’s times like this I’m glad girls can at least still take naked pictures of themselves and then email them, because knowing that gives me hope. Hint, hint ladies.
