With the police holding rallies for killer cops Johannes Mehserle, others suing the estate of Sean Bell and now police pushing to pass laws making it a felony to video tape them, it’ll be interesting to see how far they push things with Ice T…Will they let it be or try to flex and make the high profile rapper/actor an example via a boycott or something like that..In anycase I’d rather have Ice T beefing with the police over a perceived wrong rather than Soulja Boy We’ll keep you posted..
(AllHipHop News) The president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association lashed out at rapper/actor Ice-T, after the rapper was arrested near the Lincoln Tunnel in New York, for allegedly driving with a suspended license.
Ice-T, who plays detective Fin Tutuola on Law & Order: SVU, voiced his displeasure with the arrest on Twitter.
The rapper posted the arresting officers name and badge number, before labeling him a “punk b**ch rookie cop.”
“[Ice-T] may play a police officer on TV, but his disdain for law enforcement is well-documented,” PBA President Patrick Lynch said. “Real police officers enforce real laws that exist to keep everyone safe, even a disrespectful, former rap performer-turned-actor, whether he likes it or not.”
Ice-T famously beefed with police officers nation wide after his rock band “Body Count” released the controversial song “Cop Killer.”
“I’ve got absolutely NO problems with cops in general,” Ice-T tweeted today. “Just some people are a**holes. They don’t have to be cops. A suska [sic] is a sucka.”
Ice-T is attempting to turn the whole fiasco into a positive learning experience.
“The whole s**t was a joke. But it showed me how eager some people are to see me in handcuffs,” Ice-T tweeted. “Good wake up call 4 me.”
