Kodak Black, a famous rap artist pardoned by then-President Donald Trump, has offered to pay the college tuition for the children of two FBI special agents who were killed in the line of duty in Sunrise, Florida, on Feb. 2.
Special Agent Daniel Alfin, 36, and Special Agent Laura Schwartzenberger, 43, were killed while serving a federal search warrant in a “crimes against children,” or CAC, investigation, according to a Department of Justice press release. Four other FBI agents were wounded during the incident. The suspect in the case, whose name is being withheld, was pronounced dead on the scene, according to an FBI press release.
Alfin is survived by his wife and child. He had worked CAC violations for more than six years at the time of his death. Schwartzenberger is survived by her husband and two children. She had been working CAC cases for more than seven years.
This isn’t the first time Black, whose legal name is Bill Kapri, has helped law enforcement officers and their families. Bernard B. Kerik, the 40th police commissioner of the New York Police Department, took to Twitter saying that Black had “quietly” assisted with funerals of police officers who had been killed in the line of duty.
Trump commuted Black’s prison sentence, which was set at 46 months for making a false statement on a federal document in order to purchase firearms. He had served half of the sentence at the time of the pardon, according to a White House press release.
“Kodak Black became deeply involved in numerous philanthropic efforts. In fact, he has committed to supporting a variety of charitable efforts, such as providing educational resources to students and families of fallen law enforcement officers and the underprivileged,” reads the press release. “In addition to these efforts, he has paid for the notebooks of school children, provided funding and supplies to daycare centers, provided food for the hungry, and annually provides for underprivileged children during Christmas. Most recently while still incarcerated, Kodak Black donated $50,000 to David Portnoy’s Barstool Fund, which provides funds to small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
