Police Officer and Rapper -- One Kills a Man. One Gives Away Cars.
Chris Rock once said how bizarre the world had become when Eminem had a #1 record, saying "The top rapper is white, and the best golfer is black."
Along that same logic, I wonder what the world is coming to when...rapper Ludacris isn't involved in breaking a law, but giving cars away to people that are down on their luck.
I'm guessing he didn't give away as many cars as Oprah did. I'm also guessing the cars weren't as tricked out as the one rapper Xzibit gives away on "Pimp My Ride." (The people receiving the cars had to pay the tax on them, just as they did with Orpah)
Anyway...a rapper doing charity work, while it's another cop involved in shooting someone to death.
And I'm sure again, all the idiots of the world will claim the cop was wrong, when he wasn't.
It happened a few days ago in the Oak Park part of San Diego. And it was 50-year-old Manuel De Lira who was shot after he threw a knife at officers.
All the people that hate police, will ask why an officer needs to shoot when the knife is thrown? The guy probably didn't have a weapon on him after throwing the knife.
But here's what I'd ask you if you think that.
At what point should cops shoot? When a knife is being plunged into their stomach?
This guys daughter called the police saying their father was "going crazy" and the screaming could be heard in the background. He ended up in the backyard with a butcher knife in one hand, beer bottle in the other.
Officers ordered him to drop the weapon. He ignored them. They used a Taser. They used a beanbag shotgun. None of that subdued the construction worker.
He had already chased his adult daughter and slashed at her with a knife. Yet, now the daughters are saying they are upset by the police account of the events, and one was quoted as saying "He was a good and hardworking man."
Oh well. Now he's a dead man. And a dead man none of us have to worry about getting drunk and pulling out a butcher knife.
