Lil Boosie doesn’t believe relations between the police and the black community will ever get better. Boosie cited the recent police shooting of Alton Sterling in his hometown of Baton Rouge.
“It’s messed up what’s going on,” Boosie said. “I been talking about what’s going on with police in Baton Rouge for a long time. Now people get to see it with their own eyes all the injustice going on in that city. I ain’t into cops being killed, but like cops getting away with murder, it’s like they in their prime right now. I think it’s like the prime of all that stuff right now. Right now, I don’t think it’s gonna get better at all.”
He continued, “Really, there will never be peace. It’ll never be peace because you got too many lives that have been taken. All you can try to do is diffuse the situation. … Martin Luther King nem, they tried to diffuse the situation, bring peace, try to calm it down. It eventually calmed down. It toned down a little bit, but police killing people again. It’s just facts of life.”
Boosie is so fearful his children will get gunned down that he doesn’t allow them to have toy guns.
“My kids not even allowed to have pop guns,” he said.
Boosie offered his solution to the country bettering relations between black and thr police.
“I think what would slow the cops down from doing what they doing is they start getting convicted, getting life sentences, double life sentences like we get if we kill somebody,” he said.
