David Banner speaks out against acquittal

Posted by Media Outrage on April 29, 2008

David Banner spoke his mind to SOHH regarding the unjust acquittal for 3 police officers who killed Sean Bell on the morning of his wedding day who was unarmed. The cops fired 50 shots and hit him 16 times. Here’s what Banner had to say to SOHH…..

“I was outraged but I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t get mad anymore. I have to think logically. I think one of the problems with America is that we’ve adapted Bush’s cowboy mentality to everything. With the Sean Bell situation New York is basically saying, ‘f*ck n*ggas.

Banner was shocked that while the three officers were brought up on eight counts, not even one charge against the cops stuck.

“[They] shot Sean Bell 51* times and they got eight counts and you can’t convict on one count. Not even endangerment? You shot 51 times homie!”

The rapper said “cowards” allow injustices to go unpunished and he counts himself amongst the lot.

“They know that we not gonna do sh*t. We ain’t gonna do sh*t but beef amongst ourselves. Our generation is a bunch of cowards and they know that and that’s including me. All of us, we cowards and if you’re not a coward then do something about it.

All these tough ass rappers, where they at now. Where are the football players? The basketball players? Where are our senators? Where are the other black cops that work with them cops that shot their children? They’re cowards!”

“It pisses me off, I’m hurt and to a certain degree I’m scared, too. I got to be enough of a man to say that.”

To read what Game and Prodigy had to say about this injustice


“This could have easily been me, my brother, my family,” Game said via a press release. So this song is for Sean Bell from my heart. My deepest condolences go out to his family and wife Nicole Bell.”

Prodigy from Mobb Deep…..

“The NYPD is just a branch of corruption connected to a giant corrupt tree called the United States Government. Right now we have a government that controls the people, instead of people that control their government. Until we can do that, there’ll be several more incidents like the murder of Sean Bell.”

Mediaoutrage– It’s good to see rappers taking a stand and speaking out on this travesty. We’re sure the Bell family appreciates all of the support they are receiving during this nightmare.

    It is good to see the rappers who normally glorify materialism step up and say how they feel about a corrupt society such as ours.

    We need to go back to sit-ins, stand-ins and protest until things get done. Al Sharpton can’t do it all.
