Earlier this week, we covered a 16-year-old kid blasting N.W.A’s infamous “F*uck Tha Police” on repeat outside his Bronx apartment during a funeral service for a fallen police officer. The distasteful action garnered news attention around the U.S. and prompted anger in many. One of those angered citizens just so happened to be the teen’s landlord.
The building’s superintendent, Danny Morales, ordered the tenant who was housing Julien Rodriguez, 16, and his older sister, Suleika Rodriguez, to be removed from the third-floor apartment where the anti-cop incident took place.
“I called him and told him he needs to take care of this right away,” Morales told the New York Post. “I told him it’s disrespectful and they can’t be doing this. The police lost a family member. We all need to come together and respect that.”
Morales especially took offense to the situation as his nephew is a police officer in the 40th Precinct, not far from where the senseless killing of Officer Miosotis Familia took place. “I wouldn’t want to see him lying in a box also. We need to respect the police,” he added.
Familia was shot in the back of the head while sitting in her squad car on July 5th, as she was filling out her memo book.
Rodriguez allegedly blared the music in support of his brother and his best friend who were both killed by local police.
The tenant who was housing Rodriguez told the media that his sister and he were both “lowlifes.” “They’re gone. The case is closed. They’re no longer in my house. I don’t know where they went,” he told the Daily Caller.
Rodriguez would probably have kept blasting the song if 20 cops hadn’t come to his door and told him to turn it off. Suleika and her brother complained to the media that they have faced numerous threats after the news story aired. “I got people on Facebook telling him, ‘You’re wrong,’” she said.
It just goes to show that karma will catch up to you. You can show your disdain for the police, but keep in mind that all around you are people who respect law enforcement — sometimes even your building supervisor.
