The past few weeks have been full of turmoil and tragedy in the United States. Civilians and cops alike are dying due to gunfire at an alarming rate, and Baton Rouge, La. has been one of the cities affected by fatal shootings. Now, Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie is speaking out, saying the violence in his city will continue unless policemen are punished by the law for their behavior.
On July 5, police officers shot and killed Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge. This past Sunday (July 17), a Missouri man shot and killed three law officers – two cops and a sheriff’s deputy – in Baton Rouge.
Boosie BadAzz breaks down the craziness in his native city. He tells TMZ,
“A lot of people are in their feelings down there. Even the older generation, it’s not just the younger generation, people I’ve been talking to down there, they upset about it. It’s a lot of anger down there. Everybody I’m talking to when I call home, they mad. It’s just a bad position for a lot of people right now. It’s a bad position for the way we’re feeling down there, it’s a bad position for the police, they’re having fear.”
He continues, “It’s just all out craziness down there right now. I don’t think it’s gonna stop until they really start convicting officers of doing what they do. If they don’t start convicting them of what they’re doing, it’s just gon’ keep on escalating. If that guy don’t get indicted and sent to prison for life, it’s gonna be another war. There’s gonna be another shooting. It’s just gon’ keep on going. ‘Cuz if people feel like they’re not protected by the police, and the police tryna kill ’em … Man, it’s gon’ get worse
