Rapper arrested for drug and weapons possession

Police in Staten Island, New York have arrested a 35-year old rap artist for weapons and drug possession after raiding his home. The police obtained a warrant for the home of rapper Shyheim Franklin, who had worked with The Notorious B.I.G., and allegedly found a gun rolled up in a sock, as well as heroin in a safe in his bedroom. Police also allegedly found drug paraphernalia such as a scale and plastic bags. Franklin was charged with drug possession and possession of a gun. Franklin has a previous criminal history, including jail time for attempted robbery and possession of a stolen gun. This previous criminal history means that Franklin is ineligible to possess a gun. Franklin is currently being held on $10,000 bail.

NYPD officer found guilty of drug charges

By law, every American citizen accused of a crime is innocent until proven guilty. A recent case involving drug charges in New York City shows just how important it is to uphold that basic tenant. A recent court case showed that two innocent people were accused of drug crimes in 2007, as a New York police officer had planted false evidence against them.
