VIDEO: Video Calls for Revenge Against LAPD, Union Warns Members

A music video response to the fatal police shooting of Ezell Ford in South Los Angeles prompted the LAPD's union to call for police officers to be on heightened alert Thursday, reports KTLA.

The video, titled "F*** tha Police," a name shared with the 1988 N.W.A. song, intersperses news video related to the Aug. 11 killing of 25-year-old Ford with footage of a more than a dozen people raising their hands and their middle fingers at the camera. Many wear T-shirts stating "Save Black Boys."

The video was posted Aug. 15 and, according to the YouTube caption, accompanies a song by "Ceebo The Rapper," who told KTLA he wanted to consult his lawyer before commenting on the video. The song describes police as "the enemy" and "KKK in the flesh."

In an alert emailed to members on Thursday, the Los Angeles Police Protective League board stated that the video was from a "street gang" and called for revenge for Ford's death.

"In light of the video and obvious threats against the police, ALL officers should be aware of this video and are advised to be on heightened alert and pay extra attention to your tactics and surroundings," the email stated.

I have not heard what Mr.Ford did and I don't know how he responded to the LAPD but as much training and psychological evaulations we all go through to work on the streets I believe this gang is dangerous to all officers no matter where you are. Stay safe brothers and sisters.

This country has gone down the toilet. We need to get our house back in order, and soon, or things will only get worse. We need to start speaking the truth even if it means hurting some feelings. We need to take an honest and open approach to these issues and shut down those that choose to abuse their right for free speech and demonstration. I know it will be a fine line, but enough is enough. Stay safe.

Man, I am so confused, facts never mean anything anymore!. I hear how the Black community "feels" that they are profiled, "feel" that young B/Ms are being killed "everyday" by the police. Lets all understand the the stats show 12 million arrested in 2012(last year we have stats) of that 400 ended in police shooting /killing a suspect. Thats 99.9% of all arrests were non violent. Yet 13% of our entire population are responsible for nearly 49% of all violent crime. These are facts, not feelings. So should police "feel" that all B/Ms under 40 are criminals, no that would be reticules but if we are going by "feelings" a police attitude towards B/Ms would be justified by the FACTS….yet we LEOs do not "feel" we act on facts. We are above those that race bate and run of at the mouth without knowing what the true facts are. Al Sharpton, Jessie jackson and the NAACP all are responsible for the escalation in race hate and violence. Holder's Justice Dept. should look at them for inciting.

Funny thing, they say the Police are the KKK in the flesh. How stupid is that? Obviously they do not know history at all!. If this were the case there would be a whole lot more "black boys" killed daily!. Do you hear any other race that makes songs and demonstrates that cops should be killed? NO you do not!. Do you hear "white racist America" yelling to kill anyone, or make any other race "pay" , NO you do not. Im sick of these stupid, uneducated, POSs that make the trouble for all other Americans Black,White, or any other color. We would have a war on them (the trouble making race baiters!) and end this. I don't really mean this but perhaps we should just end this once and for all. Let the 13% riot and terrorize, and the remaining Americans will finish the job once and for all, since what the heck the Police are all KKK anyway. What a load of crap! I blame the Al Sharptons/Jacksons?NAACP/La Raza etc first, then the liberal News Media who love this and make $ from it all.

One thing I notice with all the Adam Henry's, they are loud with the mouth, but don't have the balls to fight for the country in which they live in. I challenge each one of them to join our military. Fight the war against terrorism and keep America Free. If you return home from battle, I'll respect your opinion.

Mike @ 8/23/2014 11:03 AM

totally agree Jeff Allen... our great country is rapidly going downhill and those Law Abiding, Tax Paying, WORKING Americans need to stand up and defend ourselves. why do we bend over backwards for Racist Criminals?

Capt. Crunch @ 8/23/2014 11:11 AM

All these Adam Henry's have to do is don't give the police a reason to contact them and life will go on without any problems. But they won't because they are to stupid. Since Obama, became president there has been more racial problems because he embraces these militant blacks. Obama, even hired Sharpton, to be eyes and ears in Ferguson goes to show what a idiot Obama, really is. Count on the next 2 years being hell.

George A. Burdge, III FTP @ 8/23/2014 11:19 AM

Until we force accountability upon the parents of this Nation, nothing is going to change. These kids sit, unsupervised watching TV and all varieties of streaming media. The crap they see, they believe is real...the thug life, the violence, the edited and slanted news footage. The protesters must be working swings or mids, there sure were an awful lot of idle citizens during the week!

Trap @ 8/23/2014 11:59 AM

It is amazingly hilarious that most blacks vote with the democrats and the democratic party is what birthed the KKK. Now they are referring to police as the “KKK.” How convoluted is that?

Capy. Crunch @ 8/23/2014 1:27 PM

@ George, you are so right, but two weeds don't make a rose.

TheRookie @ 8/23/2014 2:10 PM

They whine, cry, bitch, moan, & sing about their plight. But, They do nothing to improve their lives in a Nation that now allows them to have free schooling, food, housing, healthcare, & cash. Better than ever before. It proves that this pos POTUS & AG Holder @ Dept. of Un-Justice has stirred the racial pot so much it'll take a long long time to simmer. Obama, Jarrett, & Holder have officially assigned Al "Cocaine Snorting CI" Shark-ton as their racial consultant. And we all attached to L.E. know what his agenda(s) are about. So be safe out there Brothers & Sisters in all colors of uniform. Watch your & fellows Officer's backs diligently. May GOD & His Son Jesus Christ be with you all.

If 3 percent of young black males are committing 50 plus percent of the most violent crimes we need to stop worrying about race and stop this problem.we need to profile this group to see how to stop them. What ever or how ever they grew up, they don't deserve free reign. The black family complains about persecution but what are they doing to teach their children. Quit teaching them how they are going to be discriminated against and teach them respect. Teach them if they commit a crime, they could be killed. Teach them it is not ok to be a thug. If that doesn't work, put them in jail. All races should protect themselves from criminals. Don't lose your life because of racism. It's not ok for thugs of any color to roam free to do their will. Get your conceiled weapons permit and if the situation calls for it, use your weapon.

Concerned Citizen @ 8/23/2014 3:58 PM

Death threats used to be classified as "Hate Speech" but I don't see With-Holder doing anything about because it's Blacks doing it? Lets see... Angry Black Man mad at the Police. Doesn't like being profiled, but makes Death Threats and acts like a Gang Member? How does this Help the Black Community? Showing that the Thug Stereotype is REAL?

How about Dressing Nice, and Having Manners? Then if an LEO does any "Harm" people of all races are more like to believe that there may be LEO corruption. But not when you make Death Threats and accuse others of Racism! The Black Leadership in the USA doesn't call itself out on it's own "Racism" or Blacks racist mentality. Because it's easier to blame poor whitey and have NBC news Cover for you. One of these days, those stupid Useful Idiots in the Media will have to reap the racist seeds they've sown! I hope those "White Elites" in the MSM who are sowing bad seeds along with Al & Jesse get what they've produced! NOTHING!

Goodness. I'm offended.
The gangbangers are again 'profiling' the police!
Where do I file a complaint on 'em?

Nightstalker @ 8/23/2014 8:37 PM

Do a 211 and get away with it as the red diaper doper babies would say, red hat, baggy jeans and a gun in my underwear.

steve @ 8/25/2014 8:00 AM

Three points:
1.If Ceebo the Rapper really believes the crap he spews in his rapping, why does he need to consult with a low life attorney? Sounds pretty cowardly to me!
2. I'm pretty sure statistics will show that Blacks are [killing each other] faster than any other race is! At least they are in our area. Why don't Sharpton and Jackson get involved with that. Because it's too easy to blame someone else maybe!
3.I'm curious as to what the Supreme Court of the this great country is thinking about all this? All their liberal thinking is ruining what used to be a wonderful place to raise a family and live life. Things aren't bad enough yet for them to worry about their own protection but do they realize that when these thugs take over the country their status as judges will become null and void...meaningless! They need to get a brain and look down the road as to where the "do nothing" DIVERSION thinking is going to get us! It won't be better, it will only be worse.
Stay safe Badges!
