Rapper Bill K. Kapri, who is better known as Kodak Black has alleged maltreatment by prison guards, as he detailed his near-death experience behind bars he described as living in hell.
The convicted rapper on Saturday, took to his Instagram account to post a photo of him, and a long note describing his life behind bars. In his long Instagram message, the rapper claimed he was drugged with a laced substance back in October, which he alleges resulted in him being denied medical attention and, later, pepper-sprayed by a guard he says turned a blind eye.
Kodak cites several physical altercations he’s gotten into with different inmates over the past several months, many of which he claims were either escalated by correctional officers on hand or neglected altogether. At one point, he claims he had to be put into a wheelchair. See his statement:
“On October 29th I was laced with an unknown substance here in Miami, FDC. That substance gave me an out of body experience and had me feeling like I was possessed and dying slowly.”
He continues, “Shortly after I got into an altercation with an innate. This same CO who denied me medical attention, proceeded to pepper spray me which instantly impaired my vision and I was oblivious to who was punching and grabbing me repeatedly in the face.
Even after I was on the floor they continued to strike me and deploy more people. I was summoned for them to stop while gasping for my breath. “
This near-death experience felt like dogs were tearing at my skin while they were grabbing and beating me while I was under the influence of this unknown substance that mysteriously hasn’t popped up in my Urine analysis and mysteriously the inmate I was fighting with went home the next day.
I was beaten so brutally that I had to be taken to the Box in a wheelchair. I have been here for 45 days without commissary, hygiene stressed out and on psych meds. Having to mourn the loss of my brother Juice World behind the doors.
Prior to this, there were a few inmates who intentionally beat up … An officer and no charges were filed.
Meanwhile, I get into a fight with another inmate and this officer jumps in to inflict harm on himself and capitalize on my status as a local celebrity … I had officers tell me that the CO was ok that night and that he is trying to go this route. Because he self-checked himself in the hospital. I have also heard officers tell me that the CO has been back to FDC and bragging that he will her a quarter million from me.
I want to shed this light on police brutality and the tactics they use to cover their behinds.
