E - NEWS: Rapper 6ix9ine Denied Bail, Pronounced Dangerous To The Community




According to NBC, American rapper, 6ix9ine ,
was on Monday denied bail after a prosecutor
stated that there was evidence that he
directed or participated in multiple acts of
violence as part of a deadly gang.
The rapper and his team members were
yesterday arrested in New York on federal
charges.
NBC is reporting that U.S. Magistrate Judge
Henry B. Pitman , concluded an hour long
hearing by citing “troubling” corroborating
evidence offered by a prosecutor to show that
6ix9ine directed or participated in multiple
acts of violence over the last eight months.
The rapper and his associates were reportedly
part of the Nine Trey gang, who “wreaked
havoc on New York City, engaging in brazen
acts of violence,” federal prosecutors said.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Longyear
added that a backpack stolen during a
gunpoint robbery in April was found during a
raid at 6ix9ine’s Brooklyn residence, along
with an automatic pistol.
“The defendant is quite violent,” the
prosecutor said of 6ix9ine, adding that
6ix9ine was captured on surveillance video
as he sat in a car and filmed the scene in
Times Square when his co-defendants carried
out a violent robbery against a rival gang
member.
The prosecutor further added that the rapper
was also part of a video boasting about shots
recently fired by a co-defendant in Brooklyn’s
Barclays Center.
Longyear also said the rapper was a threat to
flee because of his worldwide connections,
hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and
the knowledge that a conviction would bring a
mandatory minimum sentence of 32 years in
prison and as much as life.
And it was for this reason that the judge
ordered that the rapper be held until a
Tuesday bail hearing, saying he was
concerned about the danger to the
community, particularly because the rapper
could direct others to carry out acts of
violence.
