Birmingham gang rap video glorifies cop-killing, police say: 'Thanks for showing us who you are'

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - Friends of a 21-year-old man fatally shot by a Jefferson County sheriff's deputy one week ago have recorded a video lashing out at police, and some law enforcement officers countywide are on a heightened alert.

The three-minute video produced by BLACK DISTRICT is a tribute to Devante Kyshon "Red Man" Hinds, who died May 9 near Walmart and Milo's on Parkway East. Authorities said Hinds tried to run a deputy over with a car and then was shot to death by lawmen.

Authorities said Hinds was involved with a heroin deal when he was shot. He was pronounced dead at a Birmingham hospital.

The video calls for leaving "police bleeding" and "dropping a cop" and has caused a stir among law enforcement, some of whom believe it is a not-so-veiled threat. "They are in an uproar and worried about some type of retaliation,'' said one officer who didn't want his name used.

Warning: The video is laced with profanity. Click here to watch the video.

Here's a little balance for the list, guys.

Sometimes brutality really is justified.

Wait no longer.

My posting record will show that am a huge supporter of law enforcement, and I have no use for the thugs discussed in this article. However, that does not justify unnecessary dog shootings, nor does it justify an over-use of militarized police tactics. There are some bad apples in the barrel, and it doesn’t help anyone to pretend otherwise.

They’re not “rappers”. They’re Urban Performance Artists.
