Fired for What!? - Meek Mill and the Court Clerk

I suppose a Philly-themed post is appropriate given that the new NFL champions are PA's own Philadelphia Eagles. Did you like that rap song the Eagles played as they took the field in te Super Bowl? It's called Dreams and Nightmares, by Philadelphia rapper, Meek Mill.

Meek Mill has had some legal problems . . . but this post isn't (directly) about those. While Mr. uhh, Mill (?) was in court for sentencing, a clerk slipped him a note begging for money to pay her son's college tuition. You've gotta be kidding me. In any event, Meek Mill did not respond, got a harsh prison sentence, and, now the clerk has been fired.

Needless to say, asking for money from a criminal defendant while you are working for the Court is an awful idea.
