Macklemore speaks out against new King County youth jail in Seattle
Macklemore is lending his voice to an effort to stop King County from building a new youth courthouse and jail in Seattle.
The Seattle rapper backed the effort Wednesday on Twitter and Facebook, urging his followers to sign and share an internet petition.
The petition asks King County Executive Dow Constantine and Seattle Mayor Ed Murray to reconsider their support for the project. It had more than 2,000 supporters late Wednesday night.
