“I don’t understand some police officers man,” he said in an Instagram video before making his account private. “Come on man you gotta get that perception out of your head that I’m a bad person. I have three kids to feed, you ask me why I’m carrying a gun? I’m legal buddy. I’ve got my life to protect.” However, he did admit that he “shouldn’t have been riding with weed.”
“As a man you admit to your mistakes when you f*ck up,” he wrote in the caption. “I’m in a different mind state than they think. I just wanna provide for my family. Learn from mistakes and move on forward. Godbless all y’all. I’m tired of drama. I wish all those cops the best …. nothing will stop me from building my empire for my kids.” Good luck, Stitches. Stay gold.
