Singer at Police Officer benefit compares Michael Brown to a dog and King Kong in racist song



The Glendale, CA Elks Lodge is investigating a shocking incident that went down in the club a week ago Monday, when a performer sang a song celebrating the death of Michael Brown ... for an audience that included a number of retired and current cops ... and TMZ has the video.

The song was a parody of "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown." Gary Fishell, the performer and a member of the Lodge, changed the lyrics, which include:

Michael Brown learned a lesson about a messin'
With a badass policeman

And he's bad, bad Michael Brown
Baddest thug in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog

Two men took to fightin'
And Michael punched in through the door
And Michael looked like some old Swiss cheese
His brain was splattered on the floor


And he's dead, dead Michael Brown
Deadest man in the whole damn town
His whole life's long gone
Deader than a roadkill dog


The event was the capper for a charity golf event, thrown by retired LAPD Officer Joe Myers, a 32 year veteran who left the force in 2007. We're told 50-60 people attended the dinner, and about half were cops, most of whom were retired. The others were civilians.

You know they're on the hunt for the person who took and sent in this video.

6. Not shocking, not surprising

 

TYPICAL mentality of police officers today and always really, when it comes to a lot of white police officers nationwide and All black people. Men, women and children of color are just not treated with the same respect or are deemed innocent until proven guilty as most white people who are stopped by police for whatever infraction. Just fact. These clowns remind me of what a KKK celebration must have been like after a night of lynching and castrating men, women and children of color in "the good old days". The human race, and our society/culture in particular, seems to be devolving to those days. Barbarously vicious really.

41. Well, someone taped it and thought it needed to see the light of day.

May or may not have been a cop attendee.

I still think not all cops are evil. But stuff like the b.s. with de Blasio, and this, are making it hard to maintain that position.

If there are any good cops, it most be difficult for them to be immersed in this crappy culture. I guess it wouldn't be easy to change jobs, except to take a pay cut as a private security guard.

44. Sick...but racist? I don't see a mention of race in the whole thing...

 

If you're saying the dog and King Kong references are racist, that's a bit of a stretch...those are words from the original song.

I understand that what's in the news is making everyone race-sensitive right now, but if everything is racist, then nothing is racist.

I personally feel we're starting to lean a little bit towards crying wolf, and if we get there, we're going to lose people's understanding, sympathy, and justified anger towards real racism.

62. "Racially charged shooting"

 

It's a "racially charged shooting" not because any evidence in the case indicates that, or because any history of the individuals involved indicates that, but solely because people are calling it such.

If I say enough times that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, then it must be so, even if there is zero evidence supporting that assertion. Right?

Yet another completely unjustified police murder of a private citizen? Absolutely. But there is ZERO evidence that the shooting was racially charged except for the fact that the 2 main individuals involved had different skin hues.

Have we really now decided that in any case, the fact that people of different races were involved is the sole determiner of whether race played a role?

67. Its a racually charged shooting because it is one of many. This didn't happen in a vacuum. Black....

cops aren't shooting unarmed white kids in the same kind of numbers representationally. This shooting didn't happen by itself, it was in a long streak of white cop/black victim.

" But there is ZERO evidence that the shooting was racially charged except for the fact that the 2 main individuals involved had different skin hues."

Did you even read that when you posted it? That same fact has been repeated over and over and over.

"Have we really now decided that in any case, the fact that people of different races were involved is the sole determiner of whether race played a role?"

How about by the fact that that its happened over and over and over and the fact that the justice department has become involved in some of these investigation?

Cops shoot too many people, period. They also seem to have it all out for black males between the age of 12 and 30.

Your Iraq point was just too goofy for more than these words. They never had evidence for WMDs because they never existed. Are you saying these overwhelmingly black victims never existed?
