Rapper & Activist Ceebo Tha Rapper Facing 4-24 Years in Prison

10372584_712805622135608_493260513895885466_n The cousin of murdered Ezell Ford by the LAPD, since then Ceebo became a community organizer in Los Angeles and has been organizing rallies and marches for Tha Movement for Ford, demanding justice for Ezell Ford and all victims of police violence.

Ceebo is now facing a long prison sentence following a house robbery in Pomona, Ca in which he and his and his codefendant, Andrew Lopez, were identified in a popular practice known as a field ID. Unlike line ups in police stations, field ID’s essentially constitute a police officer bringing the witness into the field where they tell the witness that they should not be biased just because they see the suspect in custody or handcuffs. Police then show their suspect to the witness. All in the hopes of non-bias, the witness then says yes this is the one I saw or no. Field identifications are a dangerous practice that threaten to bring frequently criminalized black and brown youth that much further from justice and closer to becoming a statistic.

Ironic this young black man who has been rallying against police brutality|murder is now facing years in prison for a crime that would seem to have no proof at all of him being guilty of any crime. This unjust system is out to imprison|enslave our men and women – this system shows no conscious.
