Prison is not really good for anyone. 5 years is a long time, particularly because he did not acctually commit the robbery. If he was white Mac Dre would probably not have been charged with anything or would have not been given this much time. 5 years is more than enough.
No, rapper Mac Dre's prison sentence of five years was sufficient for his crime. It is each individual's right to keep information to themselves versus being forced to cooperate with police requests that could ultimately put their lives and their family's lives in danger. Rapper Mac Dre made a decision to protect himself, which is his prerogative.
No, Mac Dre should not have been given longer than 5 years in prison after he refused a police deal, which was informing law enforcement about his partners. Mac Dre should not be punished any longer for refusing the police deal. He was protecting his partners identity and in turn protecting his partners' wives, children, mothers, siblings, cousins, etc. Mac Dre did the right thing by choosing to withhold the information on his partner, even if not everyone sees it that way,.
When the police throw everything they can at you to try to get you to flip on your friends and you still stand tall, that's something to be proud about. It is very likely that Dre should have gotten LESS than five years, but much like Al Capone, they gotta try to max out his sentence to make an example out of him. In '92 Dre made them look bad and didn't bow down like the rest of society, and we certainly can't have that!
