Nipsey Hussle’s Friend Refuses To Testify; Judge Issues $500,000 Bench Warrant

"Getting a conviction of the man who fatally shot Nipsey Hussle will be more challenging than one might hope.

Sure, there is a video of Eric Holder shooting the famous rap star on March 31st, 2019, but that is not enough for the prosecution to get a slam dunk in the case.

One reason — which ironically is the same reason he was shot — is the concept of snitching.

Many witnesses are not cooperating on the stand when giving their testimony, and some have not shown up.

According to Local 10, the presiding judge, H. Clay Jacke II, had to issue a bench warrant with a $500,000 bail on Thursday, June 23rd, for an eyewitness who was a no-show at the ongoing trial for Holder, the person charged with Nipsey Hussle’s murder.

The person is Evan “Rimpau” MacKenzie, a man who served as a pallbearer at the “Victory Lap” artist’s funeral. He apparently doesn’t want to testify for the prosecution, who is f*ghting to get legal justice for his friend.

MacKenzie, who was also standing next to Nipsey Hussle when he was shot, has continuously ignored subpoenas to come to court for this case, and authorities believe he doesn’t want to be viewed as a rat by his colleagues in the street.


Eric Holder’s attorney Aaron Jansen asked if MacKenzie had a “reluctancy to testify.” Los Angeles police Detective Cedric Washington, who did testify, said he believed that to be true.

Another person who is reluctant to testify is Kerry Lathan, who was wounded in the shooting. Lathan, who took the stand last week, refused to even identify himself and Holder (as the shooter) on the surveillance footage played in court for jurors.

Lathan said, “I don’t know nothing, don’t see nothing.” Deputy District Attorney John McKinney asked, “You don’t want to testify about what happened?”

“That’s right,” Lathan answered.

Jansen asked the detective, “Typically, in gang cases, is there a reluctance to testify?”

“I wouldn’t limit it to gang cases,” Washington continued.

Jansen said, “I’m asking about gang cases.”

“I do believe it is common, yes,” Washington said.

Jansen continued, “Several witnesses, in this case, have said they did not want to come to court, and they felt that their families would be in danger, right?”

The detective did not blame everyone’s hesitation in testifying on gang activity.

“I’ve investigated many cases that are outside of the scope of gang cases. I’ve found that a majority of people are reluctant to come to court or talk to law enforcement,” said Washington. “Everybody seems to think that from coming to court, they are going to be subject to retaliation.”

The case is developing, but everyone is anxious to see who from the hood will testify."

The 2nd dude could go back to prison if he admitted that he knew that he was hanging around known documented felons. So I can't blame him too much for not wanting to get caught up.

No, you're reading it wrong
I don't think he's saying the culture is that BECAUSE it's black people
Cuz that would just be racist

But I think the street code is different between black Americans and Italian American mobsters

Like I know it's just a TV show, but I'm sure it's applicable to real life

In The Sopranos universe, you're not a rat if you give law enforcement info that takes down ANOTHER criminal ring

You're only that if you give info that fu*ks over your own people

Criminal culture like that, they don’t want to see Holder in prison getting free meals, working out, resting, etc for 25 years. They want him out in the street so they can reach him. We not dealing with a big money n*gga or a n*gga known for k*lling, he is the definition of food if they take them handcuffs off.

you interpreted his post wrong

and Black criminals don't go by the same rules as criminals of other races

the mafia was known to k*ll people who they thought would snitch, Goodfellas is about that

Black criminals wait for paperwork before they decide to take any action against people.. they wait to get snitched on and then wanna do something

the streets dont have a code, thats manipulation to get people not to tell on them, it's every man for themselves when they get to court

if the streets had a code there wouldn't be so many of them in prison saying they were told on by someone who they was down with

They want him free for payback, it’s not just because they don’t want the snitch label on em. It’s the life they chose..

I don’t think that was a hit.

I know black people love to come up with conspiracy theories to explain why someone “famous” got murdered, but these n*ggas specifically ain’t on that timing.

I don't get it. I understand the reasoning behind it but it doesn't make sense. If acquitted someone is still going to go to prison for retaliation against Shxtty and refusing to testify can bring jail time. Just go testify you didn't see anything at least.

Calling them lame would mean Nipsey was lame as well because he condoned and indulged in the culture himself. And if he was ever in their situation I’m positive he would conduct himself the same way. Also not snitching isn’t criminal culture because most criminals are snitches as well lol. I agree it’s not Black culture either. Some people snitch and some don’t. Can’t really place a tag on it.

What is there to change? You're arguing that people will fold the second it starts getting shaky
I didn't disagree
I'm just saying that the principle is obviously there, people just don't be following it

It's like jaywalking
That's actually against the law
But do people care enough to follow it?
Is it enforced? No lol
