New York’s discontent with the NYPD continues to show as teen blasts the rap song “F**k the Police” by N.W.A from his apartment window, as hundreds mourn the death of an office that shot in Bronx last week.
Officer Miosotis Familia was shot dead in an unprovoked attacked in the Bronx on July 5th. Her funeral services were held on Tuesday morning, and it was moments before the service had started that Rodriguez blasted NWA’s very famous song that talks about “taking out a cop or two.”
It has been reported by the New York Post that the building’s super, Danny Morales, has ordered sixteen year old Julien Rodriguez to be removed from the building because the teen has been accused of blasting music during the funeral of a cop.
Morales stated, that he took the decision of kicking Rodriguez out as, “I called him and told him he needs to take care of this right away,” Morales talked about him telling Rodriguez to quit playing the music. “I told him it’s disrespectful and they can’t be doing this. The police lost a family member. We all need to come together and respect that.” However, this didn’t work.
It wasn’t until, 20 police officers went to Rodriguez’s apartment that he finally stopped the music.
The Post notes, “About 20 officers went up to the apartment to try to halt the music, with one cop speaking to the teen in Spanish about his own time growing up as a Latino in the city, law enforcement.”
The teen mentioned to the Post “that he eventually apologized to the cops — but only because the building super threatened to toss his family out of their home if he didn’t.”
In the efforts to gain more insight on Rodriguez, the Post got a hold of another tenant at the building. The individual that goes by the name “Jesus” indicated that Rodriguez and his sister were removed from the building. “They’re gone. The case is closed. They’re no longer in my house. I don’t know where they went,” he stated.
In his interview the Post, Rodriguez mentioned that he didn’t hold any respect for the police. The teen further mentioned that ridiculing the NYPD and playing the music gave his a rather “satisfying” feeling.
He argued that, “Since they did not show respect for my brother and my friend, why I should show respect to them?”
The teen faced serious criticism over his lapse in judgement. Media sources indicated that the sixteen year-old had mentioned that his dislike towards the cops came as result of his older brother and his friend “being unjustifiably killed by law enforcement.”
Rodriguez stated that he feels sad about Familia, “because she did not do anything wrong, but at the same time, my bro and my best friend died for no reason.”
