A Brooklyn precinct commander is being investigated by the NYPD for allegedly threatening the celebritys life telling his officers at a roll call to shoot him on sight, the Daily News has learned.
Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez, the commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park, allegedly made the threat last June 7, when the actor and In Da Club rapper was expected to attend an NYPD sanctioned boxing match in the Bronx.
During a roll call inside the 72nd Precinct stationhouse, Gonzalez told his officers if they saw 50 Cent at the boxing match, known as a smoker, they should shoot him on sight, a source with knowledge of the case said.
The inspector just said that at roll call, the source said. Im like WTF.
No one recorded the incident, and Gonzalez tried to pass off the bizarre order as a joke. But the matter made its way to police headquarters, which launched a probe.
The incident is under internal review, a department spokesman said.

Remember, though, when rappers rap about killing someone, that’s just “music”.....
It was a joke.
Even so, this police officer should know better than to make this kind of statement to a group of people.
It just, you know, sounds bad.
That’s because no reasonable person would think it was anything but a joke.
But America is infected with snowflakes looking for their chance....
Given the NYPD’s marksmanship record as of late, I don’t think this can really be construed as a threat on the rapper’s life.
The rapper dude is still alive ???
I guess it was a joke...
Now if his name was "rover" He would be pushing up daisies
It’s OK to publicly sing, rap and yap about killing cops, but don’t dare say anything about killing these special people.
Did he put out a contract on him? For fifty cents?
I fail to see the problem here.
Obviously a joke.
