Believe me when I say that I had never heard of rapper Lil Boosie until today. He’s apparently mildly famous (look at those gold chains) and also from Baton Rouge, LA. Being from the place where 3 police officers were ambushed and murdered on Sunday, Boosie decided to chime in on the killing. His assessment is that black people will continue to kill cops until there is justice and that’s just fine with him.
Lil Boosie made a video for TMZ, and while he pretends to condemn the recent anti-cop killings, he both excuses them and encourages more.
He starts out by saying the police ambush was deffinately inspired by the Alton Sterling shooting a week before. Sterling, if you remember, was killed by Baton Rouge officers while resisting arresting and trying to pull a gun on them. That shooting also inspired the Dallas police massacre in which 5 officers were murdered.
“People I been talking to, they upset about it, and it’s a lot of anger down there, a lot of people are angry down there. Everybody I’m talking to when I call home, they mad,” Boosie said of the Sterling shooting.
“They mad” that cops had to use deadly force to protect themselves against a dangerous and armed man.
“It’s just a bad position for a lot of people right now. It’s a bad position for the way we feeling down there. It’s a bad position for the police – they having fear. It’s just all out craziness right now,” he said.
Here’s where Boosie promises more cop killings if “justice” isn’t served in the justified police shooting of an armed black man:
“I don’t think it’s going to stop until they really start convicting officers for doing what they do. If they don’t start convicting officers of what they’re doing, it’s just going to keep on escalating,” Boosie.
And just what is that escalation going to be? An all out war against the police, that’s what.
“If that guy don’t get indicted and sent to prison for life, it’s going to be another war. It’s be another shooting. It’s going to keep on going on because if people feel like they not protected by the police and the police trying to kill them, man it’s going to get worser,” said Boosie.
Yes, he actually said “worser.” Boosie wasn’t quite done butchering the English language. Check out how he characterizes the ambush of police officers that killed 3 and injured 3 more:
“We’ve been going through a lot of stuff in Baton Rouge for so long, and this was they time to, I guess, to just express they madness. Express they self because they mad,” Boosie said.
So killing cops is just black people expressing themselves? How about art, or basket weaving?
Finally, Boosie gives a half-assed condemnation of the Baton Rouge police killings:
“But I just tell everybody to calm down and let’s just try to find a better way. I don’t know the better way, but I just say calm down and try to find a better way,” said Boosie.
Actually, he doesn’t really condemn the killings. Basically he’s saying blacks should find a better way than killing cops to express their anger over cops doing their jobs, but if that’s not possible, the cop-killing can continue.
Lil Boosie is a career criminal with a long line of arrests and convictions including drug and weapons charges. He was acquitted of murder, but police believe he may be involved in at least 5 other killings. This is a thug that has no respect for the law or human life.
