Watch: Racist Song At Ex-Cop Charity Dinner Mocks, ‘Dead, Dead Michael Brown’
An an event hosted by retired LAPD Officer Joe Myers, a performer sang a song celebrating the death of Michael Brown, for an audience that included a number of retired and current cops.
[su_center_ad]The Glendale, CA Elks Lodge is investigating the jaw dropping incident that took place in the club a week ago Monday, TMZ reports.
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
Some police are almost masturbating to the death of an unarmed black man. In case you think that’s an exaggeration, TMZ obtained video of the celebration:
The singer, Gary Fishell is a private investigator who once worked as an investigator for the Federal Government.
His attorney told TMZ, that Fishell now realizes the song was “off color and in poor taste.”
He added, “He’s a goofball who writes funny songs.” When asked why he’d sing that song in a room full of police officers, he said, “He thought the room would get a kick out of it.”
Someone who was at the event videotaped it because they were offended by the song and he or she was upset that no one objected to it.
A trustee of the lodge said disciplinary action will be taken and added, “We don’t stand for any racist things like this.”[su_csky_ad]
