Security Video Shows R.kelly Been Beaten By Fellow Inmate While Guards Ignore!! by videomaid: 10:01am On Oct 18
R. Kelly's attorneys say security video shows prison guards failed to stop the singer from being beaten by a fellow inmate inside Chicago's Metropolitan Correctional Center.

According to a motion filed Friday, Kelly, 53, is suffering 'significant physical and psychological injuries' stemming from the August attack, which his lawyers claim could have been 'encouraged' by staffers at the facility.


Kelly is being held at the MCC as he awaits trial on several dozen counts of state and federal sexual misconduct charges in Illinois, Minnesota and New York.

An incident report from the US Bureau of Prisons claims Kelly was ambushed by gang member Jeremiah Shane Farmer as he slept on the bottom bunk of his prison cell on August 26.

On that day, Farmer managed to separate from prison guards and enter the Kelly's cell, where he repeatedly stomped on the singer's head. The star was only saved when security personnel deployed pepper-spray.

But in their new motion, Kelly's attorneys claim that jailhouse security video shows a more troubling version of events.

They write that the footage shows Farmer was able to 'roam a great distance' away from the guards and 'no one at the MCC raised a finger to stop Mr. Farmer from attacking Mr. Kelly until after Mr. Farmer was well into beating.'

'An unresolved issue remains as to whether MCC personnel encouraged, and then allowed, a beating of Mr. Kelly to take place,' the attorneys added.

'That alone merits an evidentiary hearing.'

The filing comes less than a month after Kelly was denied bail, with officials saying he poses a flight risk and that his release could endanger the community.

Last month, Kelly's attorneys also requested that they be able to question Farmer under oath in the hopes that he may corroborate details that could help with the singer's appeal.

Farmer, 39, is a Latin Kings gang member currently serving a life sentence at MCC Chicago for a racketeering conspiracy connected to a 1999 double homicide.

He was convicted in 2019 for the deaths of Marion Lowry, 74, and Harvey Siegers, 67.

The two victims were beaten with a small sledgehammer inside their business, Calumet Auto Rebuilders, and found with severe blunt force trauma wounds to the head.

Farmer - who has a 'F**k the Feds' tattoo on his face - last month claimed he was 'forced' to attack Kelly 'in hopes of getting spotlight attention and world news notice to shed light on the government corruption,' according to court documents obtained by The Chicago Tribune.

Attorneys indicated that Farmer's questioning would include but not be limited to 'the role that any MCC personnel played in that attack'.

'It appears that MCC personnel simply followed Mr. Farmer, allowed him to carry out the attack, and then only intervened after Mr. Kelly had already sustained serious injuries,' those court documents from last month stated.

'Mr. Kelly was the victim of an unprovoked attack while incarcerated at the MCC because of who he is,' Kelly's attorney Thomas Farinella said.

'It's clear the Bureau of Prisons cannot adequately accommodate the need to keep him safe.'

Court records showed that Farmer has a history of mental illness.

Prosecutors in 2017 suggested he undergo a psychiatric exam after Farmer, who is representing himself in appeals court, revealed he was 'suffering from a variety of mental illnesses.' He was later found fit to stand trial.

An indictment against Farmer claimed that between 1999 and 2001, Farmer 'tattooed his own face with two teardrops, to commemorate having killed' Siegers and Lowry.

In Chicago, he's accused of bribing victims and witnesses to change their stories.

Kelly and his co-defendants allegedly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to retrieve child pornography tapes before they were seized by prosecutors.

In New York, prosecutors have charged him with racketeering conspiracy related to allegations he identified underage girls at concerts and groomed them for sexual abuse.

In Chicago's Cook County, he's been charged with sexual abuse and sexual assault. Minnesota prosecutors hit Kelly with soliciting charges.

He's remained at the Metropolitan Correctional Center without bond ever since.

Actually, rapists are seen as the lowest of the low even among prisoners and they get picked on very often, so it's got very little to do with racism. Inmates abhor rapists and sex offenders.

I understand, but to prison inmates in the US, they are one and the same thing. All sex related offences are poorly tolerated. Meanwhile in many climes, sex with minors is considered rape with or without their consent. It is called statutory rape.

Cons don't take lightly to pedos, rapists and snitches.

He's going to get punked hard not only because of his charges of pedophillia and rape but those cons are going to lean hard on him to extort money from him.

I can bet also some music producer or distributor wants him to sell all the rights to his music . Kelly is broke and so they may want to force him to handover his music holdings to them at a discount so they send this thug to ensure he signs the dotted lines. Same thing happened to 2Pac when he was doing time in the notorious Clinton Corrections. Suge put a squeeze on him from the inside to get him to sign on to Death row .

Cold world we live in but Kelly brought this on himself by keeping underage girls as his sex slaves.

This guy could have gotten any pyssy he wanted but chose to keep teenage girls as his sex slaves.

Nah.

Prisons and jails in the US are highly segregated.

You don't talk or friend or even fck someone outside your race.

Also, if someone from another race disses you, the shotcaller of your race goes over to the shotcaller of the offending race.
.
They then try to iron sh!t out by finding out who disrespected who. If you are in the wrong, your shotcaller will first propose he treats your fckup. If the other shot caller says No, then you and the other inmate will settle it the old way man to man in the yard.

Now you can be 5ft tall and weigh 70kg and your opponent is 6ft plus and weighs 200kg, you are still going to have to fight. While no one expects you to win, they will be looking at how you conduct yourself to see if you got any fight in you.

You punk out and either your shotcaller tells you to request PC (protective custody ) and leave the block because you are seen as a weakling among your race who won't fight and hold their back during a race war..

R.Kelly probably didn't check out and so the blacks allowed this guy to get him. And they will continue like this until he checks into PC.
.
In prison it's not your size or your wallet but how much fight you got inside you..

If you like get beaten every single day, as long as you fight back they will have your respect and leave you alone.

Kelly better man up because his going to spend a long time in that concrete jungle .
