25 Years for Nothing


My brother
hit with charges
only 15 years old at the time
Oh I wonder who chose him
was it God
was it faith
or was it the cops
"It was the cops"
Oh I wonder why
because the cops assumed he was that average black guy
A simple walk to the store
has cost him his freedom
he went not knowing
that a robbery had just arise
that goes to show how Chicago cops operate
they refuse to investigate
but decide to chose a random black guys fate
Oh I wonder why he was just a juvenile
still charged as an adult
it happened in the windy city
but his trail was held
in the suburbs
where they have 100% conviction rate
railroading at trial
the case was over
next thing you know my brothers life was over!
