Every rapper in jail is probably trying to get out of jail. BUT, there aren’t too many rappers on death row and trying to get out of jail. This list is very short. But, I got hit with a rumor about a rapper a lot of you don’t even know who they are. But, there is a dude by the name of Cool C. He’s infamously known as a Philly rapper that murdered a Black female police officer in a bank robbery gone bad. Cool C has maintained his innocence since this all happened in January of 1996! Just for your records, here is the Wiki on Cool C:
On January 2, 1996, during the same time period that he was recording a comeback EP, Roney, along with C.E.B. band mate McGlone (a.k.a. Steady B), and another local Philadelphia rapper, Mark Canty, attempted a bank robbery at a PNC bank branch in Philadelphia. During the botched heist, Roney shot and killed Philadelphia Police Officer Lauretha Vaird, who responded to the bank’s silent alarm. As he exited the bank, Roney exchanged fire with another police officer, before he and Canty dropped their weapons at the scene and fled in a stolen minivan driven by McGlone.
Vaird, an African-American woman and the single mother of two children, was the first female Philadelphia Police officer killed in the line of duty.
SO…I am hearing that Cool C is still trying to get the hell up out of jail with a gangster a$$ lawyer. How he continues to pay is hard to comprehend, but that’s the word. The crazy thing is that he was sentenced to straight up DEATH in 2006, 10 years after the murder. Now, its pushing another 10 years to inject Cool C with a lethal dose of poison? I think something fishy is going on. Me may have a great lawyer or maybe Cool C is just another cog in the machine of the industrial prison system. I don’t know, but he is trying to get the fluck off death row. I don’t see it happening.
Damn, I just realized…I wrote about this a year ago. Ain’t a damn thing changed.
