YNW Melly says he fears for his life and wants to be moved to another jail. Melly shared a message to his fans and the world about how he is being treated in Broward County jail.
Melly is accusing Sergeant Anthony Kidd and Lieutenant Jean Baptiste of threatening to “hide” him and beat his a***. The next step is them beating me half to death like they do to other inmates almost daily.”
“As of this moment today I am officially in fear of my life. A new Captain named Hubert and XO Jenkins have taken over the jail for two weeks now and have handed out even harsher punishments for me then the previous ones in place. Since December 1 I have been moved and housed on a unit that holds 24 inmates at once. I am the only inmate being housed on the vacant unit, with no phone privilege, no television and no access to a newspaper. They are watching my every move on camera making sure I don’t use the phone to tell the world how I am being mistreated, discriminated, threatened physically, harassed.”
“When I come out of my cell for the 1 hour a day, all other inmates in the adjoining dorms must go back in there cell. I am being subjected to cruel and unusual treatment at the hands of deputies and high-ranking staff of the Broward Sheriffs Office.
I have been threatened by Deputies, Lieutenants and Sergeants that say “they will hide me from the world” and threaten to “beat my ass everyday and if I tell my lawyers they will lie and say I hit them first.” Words from Sergeant Anthony Kidd and Lieutenant Jean Baptiste. I have literally been hidden from the World so l have no other choice but to believe the next step is them beating half to death like they do to other inmates almost daily here at the main jail in Broward County,” @bsooffice @tmz_tv @helpmehoward7news @channel7 @insideedition @saycheesetv @akademiks @nojumper
Melly also added, “I can’t call my family or lawyers to notify them if I have been beaten or harassed. I am housed and surrounded in the care of power struck deputies and captains of high authority that even have told me to my face that ‘they don’t like me’ and ‘I pissed them off.’ I am not safe in the hands of these people especially if the highest in command in the jail ‘doesn’t like me.’ I am in fear of my life. My family is in fear of my life. I can not do another day here. Someone, please help me get moved to another county jail until my trial. PLEASE!”
