When Meek Mill was sent back to prison in 2017 for violating his probation, his case attracted national attention and outrage. But while Meek’s story might be unique because of his stature as a famous rapper, his battle with probation is familiar to many. The Philly rapper is one of 4.5 million Americans on probation or parole, which is twice the number of people incarcerated. His home state of Pennsylvania has the second-highest rate of residents on parole or probation in the country. Complex News Presents went to Philadelphia to meet with people who have dealt with the cycle of probation and now trying to change the system with Meek’s new organization, REFORM alliance.

Meek Mill is a true hero respects! 🙏🏾
This is a good topic please keep it going, America needs to see and participate in this reform… Ol girl is the prettiest felony I've ever seen, shouts to Philly… FACTS💯💯💯
It kills me how we give these dudes props who havent even done anything for anyone yet just a bunch of talking but nobody seems to be talking about how Kim Kardashian is actually out here freeing our people im tired of all the talking n the "Oh look at me im famous n i care" bullshit. Long story short meek couldve went n did his time or take probation n he CHOOSE probation lets not forget that.
I don’t like how this video got put together. Everybody’s case is unique. Injustice is rampant. I’m on the side that Meeks team deserve credit for what they accomplished for others even if it’s just shining the spotlight
Anyone out there reading this comment, please take the time and search for the word "Dajjal". I hope this will give you the true understanding of what's coming. Hence the "One Eye" symbol ✌🏽.
He not on probation no more
Respect to Meek for trying to make a change.
I definitely understand what they saying when they say meek case isn’t unique but the tone they say it in sound like they hating on that man
I'm glad a white person was included in this video because social injustice affects all. Mostly Black Men but all.
MEEK, THE NEW HOV!!!
We have similar going on here, including with benefits, if you're fighting for your life you are still seen as not needing financial support because you didn't turn up for a certain appointment, it's irrelevant you weren't even conscious enough to take a pee!!! Let alone alive enough…what the??.???
