Suge Knight is a "prolific and unrepentant criminal" ... so claims the prosecutor in his murder case who wants bail set at a whopping $25 million.
Prosecutor Cynthia Barnes filed reams of paperwork to support her position, which will be heard Friday morning in court. Barnes cites 31 incidents -- just in the last 10 years -- in which Suge has been violent. She also submitted more than 2 dozen police reports that link Suge to extortion, robbery, assault and battery and witness intimidation.
Barnes claims Suge has laundered more than $10 million since 2002.
And Barnes claims Suge was angry when he entered the Tam's burger parking lot before running over and killing Terry Carter. She claims he was pissed off that he didn't get any money for his likeness that was used in Dr. Dre's movie, "Straight Outta Compton."
She says Suge has led a "shameless life of crime."
