Hip-hop icon Marion Suge Knight is currently in prison after being charged for the murder of Terry Carter and attempted murder of Cle Denyale “Bone” Sloan. Now, Knight's son Suge Jacob Knight, is speaking out against his father's treatment by the justice system. In an emotional post on Instagram, Knight's son details the ways that he sees his father as "neglected" by the courts:
"Im grateful to see my dad this morning, but it hurt me to see him get neglected right infront of my face. Im distugsted that these people take an oath to serve justice but do the exact opposite. I havent seen or heard this mans voice in two years! When we will they view him as a human? How come the man who turned himeslef in on a 'Hit and Run' case (Which is really a Self Defense Case) gets mistreated more than the Rapist or a serial killer? I know sin is sin but what about mercy? I dont know anybody who can sit in solitary confinement for two years and not speak to, nor choose his own lawyer. When will they let him get the best chance to defend himself. This court session was mostly of my dad asking for a fair shot, while The prosecutor rushes the judge to end the session because she has alot to do today. Bs. They even had the officer block my dads view to see me! I really need those that acutally support and who has a heart to reach out. I have great news but i need justice to be served. #FREESUGE#FREEMYDAD," reads the post.
According to Hiphopdx.com, Knight has not been allowed to see or speak to his son in two years due to jailhouse regulations. Unlike other prisoners, Knight is also prohibited from seeing his lawyers on weekends. Knight has previously complained about the conditions in prison, saying that he was denied access to health care.
Knight is due back in court for a pre-trial hearing on March 27th, according to Courthousenews.com. If convicted, he could face life in prison. The LAPD are not giving a comment on the situation.
