He's needed help for a very long time.

It's kind of just an accepted thing at this point.
Like Bobby and Whitney.

Poor DMX and a website dedicated to if he’s in jail or not that makes sense cause of all the profiling.

Having a record doesn't make one violent.
Yeeeeeeah

And then he himself pled guilty to dogfighting charges and was banned from owning any more animals. He also had to pay $15k to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

"The indictment came after reports that dogs were being abused on his property in August led authorities to search his home, where they seized 12 pit bulls and found the bodies of three others buried on his property. I can’t say that I’m all that shocked about this arrest, given that DMX has used his music to glorify dogfighting in songs like “Dog Match”, where he talks about how his dogs “love to fight” (which is eerily reminiscent of all those folks who’ve been claiming that horses “love to race” in the wake of Eight Belles’ death at the Kentucky Derby).
We’ve contacted the prosecutor in this case asking him to ensure that, if DMX is convicted, he’s given the maximum jail sentence, a ban on owning animals, and mandatory psychiatric counseling. "

But yeah prolly it was his caretaker just being lazy

Also are we ignoring that he had 3 separate animal abuse arrests?
1999
2002
2008

and was it that same shitty caretaker that was responsible for handling $400k in child support he didn't pay? Eesh

I mean if it feels safer to stick to the caricature of him you have in your head that's fine.

The brute caricature is a tried and true one.

It's hard to convince most people that discrimination also happens to people who aren't perfect. It's even harder to convince them that it's like that by design. Unperfect people are targeted the most.

Getting stuck in the system is real. It happens to millions of people. It's hard to get out of. Especially when you have mental health problems.

You watched 13th then a year later decided you didn't like being woke anymore lol

There ya go boo.

The other times are true. I hope.

None of the legitimate news sites actually mention dogfighting.

I could see it tho.

But I also don't think it means he is violent.

Came back to add:

Lmbo looks like the author copied from a CNN article where the literal next sentence is about there not being evidence of dog fighting.

"In August, deputies raided DMX's home and seized 12 pit bulls and pit bull mixes after receiving a report that the animals were being abused. No arrests were made at the time; authorities said that some of the dogs had apparently not been fed or watered but that there was no evidence of dogfighting"

And in case anyone thinks I'm cherry picking, here's the full text:
"According to sheriff's deputies, five pit bull mix puppies were taken from the rapper's home by an animal control unit and will be taken to to a jail where they will be cared for by female inmates.

In August, deputies raided DMX's home and seized 12 pit bulls and pit bull mixes after receiving a report that the animals were being abused. No arrests were made at the time; authorities said that some of the dogs had apparently not been fed or watered but that there was no evidence of dogfighting.

The carcasses of three dogs were found partially buried on the property in August, and one of the dogs may have been burned, the sheriff's office said.

"A guy like this DMX character, with all his money and fame, has no excuse for not providing proper care for his animals," Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said Friday.

In August, the rapper's lawyer, Murray Richman, said his client had been on tour and had a caretaker was watching his dogs. He said the caretaker had fed and watered the dogs but not brought them in from Arizona's summer heat."

He said DMX was upset about the treatment of the dogs, which he sometimes features in his music videos.

In that *particular* terribly shitty event in which animals were treated like shit, burned and buried, yes he was not arrested. However in the other two events in which he was charged with animal cruelty and dogfighting and terrible shitty treatment of animals, he was arrested and pled guilty and paid fines and did ads for the ASPCA.

I hate that you are defending him, just him. I know that people of any color other than white are unjustly and terribly shittily treated by the justice system. I know that prisons are full of black men becuase of institutionalized racism. I know that drugs are fucking hell and that addiction is terrible and that there is no treatment in the penal system. When I look at this guys "legal issue list" I actually pass by all the drugs like "meh" everyone's got their shit and some much worse than others. But the animal shit hits a chord for me (laughably having a kid I suppose I should also care about the total avoidance of paying $400k in child support but whatever) because animals don't get a choice when it comes to who they live with and so many shitty people get to just starve and punish them ruthlessly without much consequence.

Oh hey turns out it's not about DMX. Carry on.

I'm defending him because he is being accused of being a violent criminal who fights dogs. None of which has been proven.

The article you just posted states the exact thing I said in my first post.

He plead guilty to animal cruelty charges because his caretaker neglected his dogs while he was on tour. (the last paragraph)

The 1999 animal cruelty arrest was because puppies were being kept in crates that are too small causing a bend in their back. Terrible. But not violent.


We don't live in a world where people like DMX just get away with being violent unnoticed and unpunished. He would have been shunned and imprisoned like Michael Vick who had to go to both federal (got two years) and state court (got three years). Not just a fine.
