The Game and Snoop Dogg Organize March on LAPD Headquarters
In light of Alton Sterling and Filando Castile's recent deaths at the hands of police officers, The Game and Snoop Dogg are organizing a peaceful protest in their home city of Los Angeles, urging residents to come out and demonstrate.
"Calling: ALL AFRICAN AMERICAN MEN, MEXICAN AMERICAN MEN & any other RACE of REAL MEN with heart to stand with us today & walk peacefully to the LAPD headquarters. [LEAVE ALL WOMEN & CHILDREN AT HOME... THIS IS OUR MISSION FOR THEM]," Game wrote in the above Instagram post. "Do not: bring any weapons or anything illegal. Do not come high or belligerent.. We don't need any HOT HEADS or anyone there for the wrong reasons... We will stand as we are, UNIFIED."
Earlier in the week, Game responded to Alton Sterling's death by posting on Instagram that action had to be taken against police brutality, and now he and snoop are working together to galvanize the people of their city. "Objective: to make the Californian government & it's law branches aware that from today forward, we will be UNIFIED as minorities & we will no longer allow them to hunt us or be hunted by us!!!" he wrote. "Let's erase the fear of one another on both sides & start something new here in the city of Los Angeles."
Once they got to headquarters, Snoop, Game and their crew watched the graduation services for the newest class of officers. Afterward, they walked into a press conference with the Los Angeles Mayor and the Police Chief. Compton rapper Problem also joined them on the podium.
