White Cop Has Black Men Rap to Avoid Ticket

White Cop Has Black Men Rap to Avoid Ticket

A Video That Shows a White Police Officer Telling Two African American Men to Rap Is Causing Controversy

Dec. 3, 2006 — - An investigation is underway in Tempe, Ariz., after a police officer told two African American men they could avoid getting a ticket if they performed a rap for him.

The incident was played out on a reality show produced by the local police force. It was supposed to highlight the department's philosophy of community policing, but has instead sparked controversy.

In the clip, an officer pulls over two African American men on charges of littering. He offers them a way out of the ticket, saying, "No littering ticket if the two of you just do a little rap."

The men, neither of whom are actors, agree. One of them rhymes, "The dangers of littering you will get a ticket. If you ain't with it, you better be experienced."
