Pete Rock Discusses Police Brutality at Album Release Party
I have never been a fan of the police. However, my negative view of the police has softened as I have grown older. Likely, my view of the police has soften because I have gained a greater understanding of how many irresponsible assholes live in this world. As a result, I've developed some appreciation for the difficulty of a police officer's job. With that said, much of my youthful rage against the police has resurfaced in reaction to the video that has surfaced of the police action taken at the Monumental release party. On that note, can anybody (preferably someone who is in law enforcement) explain to me why you'll be hard pressed to find a cop these days policing the street without their terminator sunglasses on? This bothers me to no end. LET ME SEE YOUR GODDAMN EYES! In my view, hiding your eyes is some cowardly ish that criminals do. Eyes reveal emotion and our humanity. If nobody can see your eyes, how can you build any type of relationship with the community you are trying to protect.
