Snoop Dogg and The Game are no strangers to law enforcement. These men built their reputations on the mean streets.
Because of this, you would think they would have a much better understanding of what police go through. No cop wants the black neighborhood beat, the prototype of the mean streets.
According to the LA Times:
Rappers and Los Angeles-area natives the Game and Snoop Dogg led a unification march for men of color Friday morning to the LAPD’s graduation of its newest officers, hours after five Dallas police officers were shot and killed and seven others were wounded during a sniper attack.
About 6:30 a.m., the Game posted on his Instagram account a call for black, Mexican and men of all races to march to the Los Angeles Police Department’s headquarters to “make the Californian government & it’s law branches aware that from today forward, we will be UNIFIED as minorities & we will no longer allow them to hunt us or be hunted by us !!!”
He said women and children should stay away, “THIS IS OUR MISSION FOR THEM,” he wrote.
Apparently these gentlemen are looking for unification between the black community and the police. They wanted a unified position against the police.
Yet another misguided attempt to put the blame of what’s happening in the black community on the police. And the sad part is these guys do this type of thing not because it benefits the black community. They do it because it benefits their pocketbooks. Record sales, Beyonce!
The article continues,
Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, said organizers didn’t know there was an LAPD recruit graduation scheduled for Friday morning. The point of the march was to reintroduce the Police Department to members of the community it serves, he told reporters at the scene.
About 50 men joined the march to LAPD headquarters.
“The mission is to reintroduce our community to the LAPD… just to get some understanding and dialogue,” he said. “We’re the ones they’re going to be dealing with, we’re the ones that are going to be pulled over. … We’re here on peace.”
I hope they did share understanding and dialogue. That would be the first time any Liberal I’ve heard of really looked at things from another perspective.
Further, I suggest that Snoop and The Game begin their outreach by honoring the commitment of the new recruits. After all, these are the young men and woman about to hit the mean streets of Los Angeles.
Hopefully the residents of Los Angeles will see that the police are humans. They are not prey. In fact, the police have critical roles in society, and they will be as good as the society they serve. It’s time Liberal society step up to meet them.
