Boosie Badazz has responded to the deadly police shooting that went down in his hometown of Baton Rouge, La. In a video released on Sunday evening, the rapper insists that the killing of Alton Sterling played a big part in the tragedy, which left three police officers dead.
In a video presented by TMZ, Boosie says many people are angry about the recent instances of police brutality against blacks; but perhaps more infuriating is that the cops are essentially getting away with murder.
“It’s a lot of anger down there, a lot of people are angry down there. Everybody I’m talking to when I call home they mad,” Boosie said in the video. “I don’t think it’s going to stop until they really start convicting officers for doing what they do. If they don’t start convicting officers of what they’re doing, it’s just going to keep on escalating.”
Though Boosie says the attacks against cops are inevitable, he says he doesn’t believe they’re right.
“We’ve been going through a lot of stuff in Baton Rouge for so long, and this was their time to, I guess, to just express their madness,” he said. “But I just tell everybody to calm down and let’s just try to find a better way. I don’t know the better way, but I just say calm down and try to find a better way.”
