Snoop Pleads Not Guilty to Baton Charge

Snoop Dogg’s attorney, Donald Etra, entered a not guilty plea on the rapper’s behalf yesterday (January 23) in response to charges of possession of a deadly weapon. The charges stem from a September 2006 incident at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, CA during which Snoop, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, was found to be carrying a 53-inch collapsible baton in his carry on luggage. He told authorities that the weapon was a prop for a movie he was filming in New York. Snoop is currently out on $150,000 bail, and if convicted, could face up to three years in prison. In other Snoop news, the West Coast MC has still not been charged in relation to two other arrests from November and October of last year. On October 26, 2006 Broadus was detained at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank when he was found to be in possession of an illegal firearm and marijuana. Just over a month later, Snoop was arrested once again following an appearance on the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” for cocaine and marijuana possession, firearm possession and having a false compartment in his vehicle.

    I just wonder why do these niggas think that just because they got a littel bit of fame that if they do shit against these fucked up laws that these white folks aint gon at least try to throw they ass in jail or make a terrible example out of them. They dont give a fuck about our little money as a whole, we still aint really got shit, and when a nigga is in a position to make a change in this country and do silly shit like that, it only makes it harder for us to get ahead. Niggas act like slavery didnt end not even a hundred years ago. We still got a lot of work to do. Get it together my niggas, and start tryin to not fuck up.
