New Zealand Cops Feeling Awkward After A Hacker Broadcasts NWA’s ‘Fuck Tha Police’ on Repeat Over Police Scanners

Some Kiwi cops are feeling frustrated after a hacker forced them to listen to NWA’s anthem against the LAPD on repeat over the radio scanner. This is an obvious FML for the police, but thumbs up to this hacker for taking trolled to a whole new level.

It’s a tough time to be a cop. They’re trusted less now than ever before after countless instances of brutal force and racial profiling and while many of these instances take place in the United States, it appears the anti-police sentiment has made its way across oceans...all the way to New Zealand.

Over the weekend, police in Dunedin, New Zealand were met with their very own semi-anarchist hacker troll à la Guy Fawkes in V for Vendetta, who rather than broadcasting a revolutionary speech over the television, broadcast an equally revolutionary rap song over police radio scanners.

The song? NWA’s “Fuck Tha Police.”

Savage, isn’t it? You can see how this could get awkward. The hacker also broadcast a cover version of the song by Rage Against The Machine.

While it’s hard not to see the dark humor in this situation, Dunedin police experienced serious delays in response time, due to the radio interference.

The police have no leads on the identity of the hacker, but it’s possible he or she could be a serial offender. After all, this is not the first time their scanners have been hacked. Over the summer, police reported hearing sounds of “pig grunts and abuse” being broadcast over the radio in what could be interpreted as a more veiled threat to the force, considering cops are often referred to as pigs.

Whoever this hacker is, their savagery will go down in history. Or at the very least, it will go down in police records.

There are more white people in the US than black people. By percentages, blacks are two and a half to three times more likely to be shot by police than white people. Looking at raw numbers doesn't tell the story.

Just because you've never been a victim of profiling, that doesn't mean it never happens. And no, I'm not against the police because I understand that just because a few are bad, that doesn't mean the rest are bad, and I despise the BLM movement.
