After coming across the morbid video that TMZ has published the event of a police charity rally, the conclusion drawn show that the people at the charity event are absent white-hooded robes.
The song meant to be humor is not prescribed for thin-skinned black officers or perhaps the song is meant for sparking a riot among people who attended the ELK lodge event who are from privileged European-american backgrounds?
Perhaps their elite class of community protectors that sit at the same tables of municipal power that social justice protestors call class segregation, structural racism and economic apartheid.
This song, at first sounds like an innocent throwback to older classic cultural songs like Lonny Mack’s “Cincinnati Jail” or Bob Marley’s “ I Shot The Sheriff.” But, there is insensitivity taken with the current national mood in context highlight law enforcement’s regular disdain, callousness and contempt for the public.
However, the realization that the song called “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown,” as written by the late Jim Croce, by Gary Fishell, the performer and a member of the Lodge who changed the lyrics, disgraces both law enforcement and the late singer Croce by glorifying violence at the hands of law enforcement.
Here’s the lyrics:
Michael Brown learned a lesson about a messin’
With a badass policeman
And he’s bad, bad Michael Brown
Baddest thug in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog
Two men took to fightin’
And Michael punched in through the door
And Michael looked like some old Swiss cheese
His brain was splattered on the floor
And he’s dead, dead Michael Brown
Deadest man in the whole damn town
His whole life’s long gone
Deader than a roadkill dog
The level of disrespect for a victim of violence who was left in the street over four hours in sweltering close to 100 degree weather speaks volumes about the level of sensitivity police have for the general public.
In warfare, we see repeat episodes of military photographing their kills as hunting trophies. Now we get police officers smiling after choking people to death on videos & high-fives, creating songs to demean the memories of deceased unarmed minorities and threatening to rape women who protest against police brutality.
So when are these mythical good cops going to speak up for the rest of the public?
