Statement From Camron Regarding 60 Minutes Segment

April 26, 2007 at 3:25 pm | Posted in Hip Hop News/Press Releases | Leave a comment

“In 2005, I was a victim of a violent crime.  I was shot multiple times without provocation by two armed men who attempted to carjack my vehicle.  Although I was a crime victim, I didn’t feel like I could cooperate with the police investigation.  Where I come from, once word gets out that you’ve cooperated with the police that only makes you a bigger target of criminal violence.  That is a dark reality in so many neighborhoods like mine across America.  I’m not saying its right, but its reality.  And it’s not unfounded.  There’s a harsh reality around violence and criminal justice in our inner cities.

“But my experience in no way justifies what I said.  Looking back now, I can see how those comments could be viewed as offensive, especially to those who have suffered their own personal tragedies or to those who put their lives on the line to protect our citizens from crime.  Please understand that I was expressing my own personal frustration at my own personal circumstances.  I in no way was intending to be malicious or harmful.  I apologize deeply for this error in judgment.”
