He was dealing with someone who didn’t have a front license plate. This is, in the vernacular, a pretty chicken-crap stop, all right? And – I could use harsher words.</i

    “I’ve been doing this for 30 years,” he added. “This is the most asinine act I’ve ever seen a police officer make, totally unwarranted.”

    And he is seen to promote violence…despite the concert being a “Stop the Killing Now” benefit show, intended to raise money for Dillan Harris, a 13-month-old baby killed by a car fleeing a drive-by shooting that killed rapper Melvin Carr.
