Even though his time in office is ticking down the current POTUS is feeling generous with his power. He has now given one of Snoop Dogg’s associate a get out of jail free pass.
Digital Music News is reporting that the West Coast legend’s former producer has been fully pardoned by none other than Donald Trump. On Tuesday, December 22 the reality television turned politician signed off on papers that let Weldon Angelos be a free man. In 2004 the Los Angeles native was arrested for attempting to sell $350 dollars worth of marijuana to an undercover police officer. The lawmen also found a pistol on his person.
He was hit with 13 charges including drug possession, money laundering and unauthorized firearm violations. In 2004, Angelos was sentenced to 55 years in accordance with mandatory minimums which were created to deter individuals from drug trafficking. He was originally offered a plea deal that would have brought it down to 15 years but he refused to cooperate with the police in efforts to arrest other offenders. He was projected to be released in 2015 but in 2017 then-president Barack Obama commuted his sentence. The move ended his time behind bars but his record would still show a conviction.
Last week Trump’s full pardon will expunge the felony from his record and restore his full rights as a United States citizen. Angelos took to social media to celebrate the announcement. “Feels great to have been fully pardoned by the President of the United States. Now it’s time for more pardons and commutations” he wrote on Instagram.
Isn’t Snoop the guy who did the video pretending to shoot Trump?
Acting like someone who knows he has very little time remaining as POTUS.
Lots of of Making America Great Again going on here.
Yes, he was. And what’s ironic is that Donald Trump has been name-checked in dozens of rap songs. Of course the moment he went down the escalator he became a white supremacist Klansman.
I say let all the ganstas out of prison since our government is full of them and it ain’t fair for only some ganstas to be in prison. That, and the hell they’ll unleash is going to be very entertaining.
Hopefully he pardons Edward Snowden and Julian Assange - their only crime was exposing the crimes of the Deep State.
Is this real or someone’s version of ‘humor’?
If real, I don’t know what to say about it, except that it seems a wasteful use of a Pardon. But then, who’s asking me?
I read your opinions.
I dunno the guy so I dont have much input on this (the guy he pardoned)
Pardons te!l the tale unfortunately.
Nah, just pardon the show biz types.
Leave the average Americans to rot in prison for non-violent drug crimes.
Snoop Dogg, so gangsta he launched his Cali-Red wine this past summer with his name and face on the bottles. He isn’t even as gangsta as his cooking show co-host Martha Stewart. (Martha Stewart has actually been to prison while Snoop Dogg hasn’t).
I can think of people far more deserving of a pardon.
