OK, so this rapper in Dallas got additional jail time tacked on due to what he said in rap videos he posted on line? I am not saying this guy is a saint but what happened to a little thing called evidence? I don't see how they can do this without evidence that he committed the crimes he raps about, seems he could make the argument that it was entertainment and he didn't really do any of the crimes he rapped about. Thoughts ATSers?

Depends if it were self incriminating, did he sing about things that were true that evidence came back as being true? Im sure there is much more to it then just a video your not getting all of it, they have to have some kind of evidence. But he probably self incriminated himself, even rich and famous stupid people exist.

You forgot the most important part listed in the article that YOU linked to .
Apparently , he confessed to crimes online
Big NoNo for NaNa

But does't the article say he knew things that were directly related to real crimes, and he talked about them in a way that it was clear he had knowledge of things no one could know unless they did it?

If you shoot someone several times and no one says how many times the victim got shot and you out there and sing about where and how many times you shot it and it matched exactly with reality, and it happens to be true for several other crimes, it is a coincidence?

Maybe these minstrels will stop dry snitching on themselves in rap videos, instagram, and facebook. You'd think they would have learned from Bobby Shmurda getting his whole crew locked up.

And black people wonder why they are oppressed, 12% of the USA population is black, blacks make up 40% of the prison population and they wonder why they are held back.... They are holding themselves back.

His words were a little to real
he confessed to the kills
A sadistic psychopath
who entrapped himself with his own rap
with a pea sized brain he went for fame
but lacked empathy and brought pain
to his victems and felt no shame.
He has no one else but himself to blame.

I don't know, but I was just confused and flabbergasted for a second when I realized this thread wasn't about Trump. Just didn't know how to react to not-Trump.

The saddest part about this whole thing is the fact that for every one of these scumbags we see out in the open, there is 100 more of these cockroaches hiding in the cracks. Good riddance.

How do you know that the crimes he was raping about weren't already known by the police?

He must have been saying details in the rap song only known by the person who committed the crime and the cops knew this.


Just my guess.

Admission of guilt is evidence.

I have been in court too many times to count (as a paralegal) during guilty pleas--admitting to crimes is basically the strongest form of evidence known to the law.

Couple that with the reality that, in the words of your own link:

It was exactly what prosecutors needed in their bid to give Campbell serious federal prison time. They say they matched up his words with actual crimes, including an ambush robbery in which he allegedly shot a man eight times while he was asleep in bed.

Campbell, 20, of Dallas hasn't been charged with those crimes, although he remains a suspect. But U.S. District Judge Barbara Lynn on Wednesday said the evidence prompted her to sentence Campbell, leader of the YNB Stretch Gang in South Dallas, to 12 years in federal prison.

The sentence stems from Campbell's guilty plea in February to a charge of distributing coc aine.

So, here's the reality of the judicial system: Final sentencing is at the discretion of the judge, especially in guilty-plea situations. Aggravating circumstances can be used during sentencing in order to determine a softer or harsher sentence (this is where the individual circumstances of the individual case matter, and why I hate mandatory sentencing).

Yes, he plead guilty to distribution of coc aine, but the reality that he is admitting to gang violence and even murder gives the judge evidence that keeping this jackass off the streets for a longer period of time is an appropriate thing to do.

You will note, though, that he hasn't been charged for the crimes that he admitted to in his raps...yet. If he is, I'm sure that he will be tacking on many more years to that 12-year sentence.

I say good on the judge in this instance, and it should be a reminder not to be an idiot and brag about your murders and illegal gang activity out in the open for everyone to see.

He's locked up because of a guilty plea to distribution of coc aine.

He got extra sentencing because of his own admission of his violent gang activity--it's a think called aggravating circumstances, and it happens all of the time.

The investigators matched up his claims to actual crimes committed, although he hasn't been charged for those crimes (yet).

Did you read the story at all? Just wondering...

Are those found elsewhere on any of his re-corded raps? If so..2 things come to mind.

If he'put them out on a c.d. say..those words and phrases are copyrighted, and under "free speech".

And/or...he could've violated the obsenity rules of a certain place or people's..
