That's not the statement I'm making by any means. I agree that the events in Dallas, where I live, were not justice at all but an act of terrorism. I do not support cop killing by any means, or killing at all for that matter. The song is about 25 years old, FWIW, I saw Ice T perform it live at the 1st Lollapalooza in 1991. Ironically, or not, Ice T has gone on to play cops as an actor. Was he sincere about the sentiments portrayed in the cop killer song, or was he, as an artist, expressing the frustration of the people in his environment? Who knows? Who cares? I thought the song was relevant in that it reflects, justified or not, the feelings that many have toward law enforcement.Considering the timing of this post, I don't see how it can be seen as anything other than a statement supporting cop killing. I don't see last night's events in Dallas as justice or getting even; I see it as terrorism. Those cops who were killed last night didn't kill anyone. We definitely have a problem with trigger-happy cops killing innocent people and it needs to be stopped, but assassinating random police officers only sets back the cause. All white cops aren't racist killers. Demonizing police officers won't solve this problem. I'm grieving the loss of the two innocent men as well as the Dallas police officers. I don't see them as mutually exclusive ideas. Peaceful protests are fine, but filling your heart with hate to the point of supporting cop killing will only make things worse.
Anyway, I apologize again for offending and disappointing anyone. I know eic is not the place to try to make social commentary. I'll try to refrain from doing so in the future.
