Lawyer for Lil Wayne and Ja Rule Blame Hip-Hop Police

wayne-ja3.JPGStacey Richman, the lawyer who is representing Lil Wayne and Ja Rule in their separate gun possession cases, is blaming the hip-hop police for targeting the two rappers after they performed at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. Ja Rule was arrested at approximately 10:30 p.m. on July 22 after the NYPD pulled his vehicle over for allegedly speeding. Police searched the 2004 Maybach, which is owned by the Maximum Transportation firm, and found a .40-caliber Taurus pistol. According to Stacey Richman, the gun found in the car belonged to someone else. “If you get a car, and something’s left in the car, is that yours?,” Richman asked MTV News. “How can you ascribe that anybody knows what’s in a car?”

Lil Wayne was also arrested that same night at approximately 11:30 p.m. when the NYPD allegedly spotted Weezy’s and another man smoking marijuana near a tour bus on 61st Street and Columbus Avenue. According to prosecutor Joan Illuzzi-Orbon, when the officers boarded the bus, they saw Wayne toss a Louis Vuitton bag off his lap. Upon searching the bag they found a .40 caliber Springfield Armory semi-automatic pistol. But according to Wayne’s attorney, Stacey Richman, the NYPD’s claims are false. “[Wayne] was in the bus in his boxer shorts with a number of other people,” Richman told MTV News. “Unless his boxer shorts had a pocket for this gun, I don’t understand how he had it on him.” Richman also stated that witnesses have not confirmed the reports of Wayne hiding the pistol in the Louis Vuitton bag. In addition, Richmand’s father and legal partner, Murray Richman, claims Wayne’s arrest was a result of targeting rappers by the NYPD Hip-Hop Police, who “staked out the [tour] bus.” Murray also told MTV News that he questions the NYPD’s motives since the 12 to 20 people on the tour bus were not arrested along with Wayne. According to Murray, the New York law states that if authorities search a vehicle and find an unclaimed gun, everyone must be charged.

    ‘ “If you get a car, and something’s left in the car, is that yours?,” Richman asked…’ Why, as a matter of fact, yes. Just like if someone plants drugs in your bag and you get searched. Otherwise people would constantly use the excuse that contraband wasn’t theirs. Looks like someone gave them a bum steer on the lawyer. Also it’s gonna be hard convincing a judge considering the rappers’ lyrics, especially Wayne, who tattoos which include tear drops and the words “GANG BANGER” across his chest.

    I KEEP TALKING ABOUT JOKE RULES DICK AND WAYNE. BECAUSE I AM GAY!!! BUT THAT’S JUST ME BEING HONEST. I SUPPORT 50CENT 100 PERCENT AND ON SOME REAL SHIT. IF 50 ASKED TO FUCK ME I WOULD LET HIM DO IT.I JUST HATE JOKE RULE FOR ACTING LIKE HE’S GANGSTA LIKE HIM. WAYNE REALLY NEED TO STAY AWAY FROM THAT DUDE. BECAUSE JOKE RULE COULDN’T ATTRACT REAL NIGGAS LIKE ME.

  • DirtDoggy

    Fuck man, NY’s waisting millions in tax dollars to control fake rappers ? spend that shit on something productive you damn fools.

    Rappers with cake need to have thier own private eyes in NY to watch the hip-hop cops watching them and send them breakfast and put bannans in thier tail pipes like Eddy Murf.

  • MYMPHISGOLD101

    NY is the most surveyed city by the feds right now. The Italian, Irish, Russian, ect. Mafias are all dead and gone bcuz of the NYPD. The only gangs left are the types of gangs 50cent is in, where they shoot themselves to be rappers.

    Go to Boston or Miami for the Mafia. NY is the safest place in America right now.

    Why is so hard to believe that there is a Hip Hop Police??? After the West/East thing happened why wouldn’t they do that?

  • Hova

    they even got the same lawyers damn tthat is fishy as fuk 2 snitch ass ni99as with homo tendencies i hope they get locked for 5 to 10 so we dont have o hear there trash rap music

  • Ghost Deini

    Seriously, everybody needs to get off the Wayne bein gay thing. Grow the fuck up. That picture or Wayne and Baby “kissing” was at a video shoot for “Do That”. Do you really think Wayne and Baby were just gonna get all fruity and kiss in front of everybody. Mad rappers and models in that video. I think if they were really gay, they could control themselves and save the fruity shit after the video shoot. All of the Cash Money family was there, most seen in that photo. Most of them now have beef with Cash Money. Don’t you think somebody woulda dropped that bomb. Weezy’s the best rapper at the moment, so just suck your teeth and get over it.

  • Hova

    hes garbage man u dont know real hiphop and did u see that picture look at his homeboys faces with the disgusted look on they faces and gillie used to roll with em and wats he saying wayne and baby is gay son u wayne fans just mad your fav rapper is homo hahhaaha fuk outta here get some real hiphop HOVA HOVA HOVA HOVA THE KING of hiphop .WAYNE FANS-[getting all the internet groupies ryding for u dont make u the best]it just shows u shouldve listened to public enemy *DONT BELEIVE THE HYPE*

  • Double R

    “the New York law states that if authorities search a vehicle and find an unclaimed gun, everyone must be charged.” Wayne is def gettin off if nobody else got arrested.

    There’s already holes in their report. I thought I read that they saw him smoking weed in front of the bus. So how the hell did he go in and sat his ass down in a matter of a minute maybe. Come on… we all know they’ve been targeting everybody in NYC for a minute now. Anyone who is in these circles. Don’t get it twisted they have folders on the writers, ARs, PRs and anyone associated with them. Trust I went to Jamaica a couple of years back for a Heniken Red Star weekend and guess who security was for the weekend? Yes the infamous Main Hip Hop cop, and to My surprise when I was introduced to him, He knew exactly who I was. Surprise, surprise!! But what can You do, and guess what I still lit up in front of him on some fuck you ish. They (him and his croonies were acting as security) couldn’t do nothing on a resort in Jamaica with its own laws. But ask Me to put it out. Yeah right!! back to my room to get lit with the Ying Yang Twins, and then later on the beach with Kamal from the Roots. FUCK THE POLICE!!! IN CASE YOUR WONDERING I USED TO WORK FOR THE SOURCE (BEFORE ZNO SUNK THE SHIP)!
