Police beg Ice Cube's mercy

  1. Police beg Ice Cube's mercy

    Thursday July 24, 2003

    Chicago police have apologised to rapper turned movie star Ice Cube for likening him to a man wanted in connection with a string of sexual assaults. In a bid to catch the culprit, the Chicago Police Department released an all-points-broadcast on Sunday, calling for officers to be on the look-out for a black male in his mid 20s "who resembles the popular rap artist Ice Cube."
    The description may have passed unnoticed had the local TV network, WBBM-TV, not used it in its own, more public broadcast. To illustrate their news item about the wanted man, the channel helpfully ran an Ice Cube video as a visual aid for viewers. By an unhappy twist of fate, Ice Cube currently happens to be in Chicago, where he is shooting his role in Barbershop 2. Relaxing between takes, various cast members witnessed the news broadcast and accompanying video. It is not known whether Ice Cube was among the viewers. Nor is it known whether he subsequently found himself hounded through the streets by outraged vigilantes - although it would make a good movie if so.

    Yesterday police spokesman David Bayless apologised to the actor, saying: "the initial alert should not have been issued and the Chicago Police Department apologises to Ice Cube for the error. The Chicago Police Department regrets this honest mistake and certainly meant no ill will whatsoever."

    Fuck tha police....

    Fuck the police comin straight from the underground
    A young nigga got it bad cause I'm brown
    And not the other color so police think
    they have the authority to kill a minority
    Fuck that shit, cause I ain't the one
    for a punk motherfucker with a badge and a gun
    to be beatin on, and thrown in jail
    We can go toe to toe in the middle of a cell
    Fuckin with me cause I'm a teenager
    with a little bit of gold and a pager
    Searchin my car, lookin for the product
    Thinkin every nigga is sellin narcotics
    You'd rather see, me in the pen
    than me and Lorenzo rollin in a Benz-o
    Beat a police out of shape
    and when I'm finished, bring the yellow tape
    To tape off the scene of the slaughter
    Still gettin swoll off bread and water
    I don't know if they fags or what
    Search a nigga down, and grabbin his nuts
    And on the other hand, without a gun they can't get none
    But don't let it be a black and a white one
    Cause they'll slam ya down to the street top
    Black police showin out for the white cop
    Ice Cube will swarm
    on ANY motherfucker in a blue uniform
    Just cause I'm from, the CPT
    Ounk police are afraid of me!
    HUH, a young nigga on the warpath
    And when I'm finished, it's gonna be a bloodbath
    of cops, dyin in L.A.
    Yo Dre, I got somethin to say
    Fuck Tha Police
