Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Visits Meek Mill, Calls For Criminal Justice Reform

Despite his team losing to the Eagles in the Super Bowl, the billionaire backs the Philly rapper.

(AllHipHop News) Many people believe Meek Mill was wrongly imprisoned following reports of widespread misconduct involving Philadelphia's police force. Since a judge sent him back behind bars for probation violation, the Dream Chasers leader has received a lot of support from the public.

New England Patriots Owner Robert Kraft is among those individuals backing Meek. The billionaire businessman went to visit the Wins & Losses album creator and spoke to the press afterward.

"He's an amazing young man. I know how I’d feel if I was in the situation he is," said Kraft. "Every time I see him, I just come away more impressed. He’s very intelligent. And makes it clear to me we have to do something with criminal justice reform."

Kraft added, "I know some of our players in the NFL have talked about this, and I see firsthand that it's just wrong. We have to find a way to correct it. Also, help the community help themselves.

Meek Mill (born Robert Williams) is currently serving 2- 4 years. However, the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office has stated prosecutors are not opposed to Williams being released on bail.
