12-year-old rapper Lil C-Note (born Corey Jackson) appeared in court on February 12 to face felony charges after being arrested selling CDs at Atlanta’s Cumberland Mall. His lawyer, Mawuli Davis, confirmed that the charges include obstruction of an officer, disorderly conduct with violence, and criminal trespassing, per Complex.

T.I. is one of Jackson’s loudest supporters and he recently hit up social media to condemn the charges while others across social media blast our broken justice system.

Lil C Note was accused of loitering inside the Cumberland, Georgia mall back in October and the viral video shows an officer grabbing his arm while threatening him with jail time… watch the disturbing moment via the video embed below.

Lil C Note’s aunt filmed the scene and she can be heard in the clip screaming at the officer for manhandling the boy. She was ultimately charged with felony obstruction, giving false ID, criminal trespassing, and misdemeanor obstruction charges.

“Tha fact that he snatched me & was trying to drag me around like I’m sum criminal that’s stealing, robbing or killing or sum is #Crazy,” the caption of the video read. “But tha worst part is he trying to charging me with a #felony putting my hands on a #PoliceOfficer he say I tried to brake his fingers, he say I cussed him & he say I pushed him! Where in this video do it show I did anything but tell him I know my rights & then when he proceeded to try and drag me.”

Authorities said the child had been warned on two previous occasions not to sell his mixtapes within the shopping center. But his lawyer insists he did nothing wrong.

“When he was there, he was not selling any CDs or doing anything that would have been prohibited,” Davis said during a court hearing last month. “He was there meeting other artists.”

In the IG embed above, T.I. compares the child’s case to that of Nataliia Karia,43, a Minneapolis daycare provider who only received 10 years probation for hanging a toddler in her basement.

News of C Note’s recent court appearance also prompted others to compare the two cases on social media.

T.I. even addressed Lil C Note’s case during a press conference in January.

“Me, I tell it like it is,” he said “Basically, it’s our black kids getting picked on. You know if that was a white kid, nothing would’ve ever happened.”

Meanwhile, Davis is hopeful the charges will be dismissed before the case goes to trial.

    Here is what you’ll never hear, “Police manhandled Black12 y/o spelling bee winner, or Science Fair winner.” We give this fallacy to our kids that sports and rapping are valued, realistic life careers. Whites, Asians, and Hispanics continue to widen the academic gap. The only catagory we excell in is Stupid Shiggidy

    First off; I’d be embarrassed if either one of my sons, at any age told me they wanted to be rappers. What a waste of brains. Secondly, a mall is private property. If they tell your bootlegging behind to leave, you freaking leave. Where is this 12 YEAR old’s parents and they can’t find something constructive for him to do? Thirdly, he has no concept of grammar or syntax! He needs to be in some after school reading program. Bunch of fools. And for the poor black victim me crowd; being black does not minimize or abdicate responsibility for doing the wrong thing. Its cowards like you who make excuses for the dumbness played out daily in our communities.

        Uncle Ted isn’t be able to hear you. His ears are stuffed with cotton. He’s still on the plantation and hasn’t gotten the message that slavery ended and he’s free from the wrath of the white man.

      Prove it! Let me guess, ya can’t. If TI is so concerned about this “entrepreneur” let him sell bootleg cds outside of his gated well-manicured mansion. Then and only then, will I be interested in his POV.
