Kodak Black is still awaiting trial in his upcoming gun case but now his legal team is hoping to get a leg up on prosecutors in the matter. According to Kodak’s team, they allege that Florida police racially profiled the troubled rapper.
The Blast reports:
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, the probable cause affidavit for Kodak’s warrant was filled out by a detective who has been in the press for shooting and killing a black man in Florida a few years back.
In the document, the officer claims, “On March 1, 2019 [officer] was at Lou’s Police & Security equipment store, located at 7815 West 4th Ave, Hialeah, Florida, when [officer] observed Mr. Bill K. Kapri at the gun counter. Mr. Kapri was having a conversation with a gun sales clerk. [Officer] observed Mr. Kapri walk over to the sales register holding boxes of ammunition, as the sales clerk walked to the register with an open Sig Sauer box containing a rifle style firearm. As Mr. Kapri paid for the ammunition and a drum style high capacity magazine, he advised an unknown email sales clerk that he would be back to pick-up the gun he purchased.”
He continued, “An investigation was later conducted and revealed that Mr. Kapri was attempting to purchase a Sig Sauer Rattler .300 pistol and left a $2000 deposit.”
Kodak was denied after the background check came back, but was arrested two months later for allegedly giving a false statement to purchase the firearm.
