As police forces around the country continue to decline to provide security at Beyonce concerts, the Grammy Award-winning singer announced her own private security firm. The firm which consists of members of the Black Panther Party and ex-police officers, will travel to venues with the singer and provide security.
Police have declined to protect Beyonce and her concert-goers after the conservative media falsely painted her Super Bowl performance as anti-cop, despite the fact that the performance made absolutely no mention of law enforcement whatsoever. It is actually quite puzzling how anyone who watched the performance could make the connection that the song (Formation) was anti-police.
The NYPD stated they will provide Beyonce with security if she apologizes for her Super Bowl performance. The NYPD maintains they don’t believe Beyonce was advocating violence towards police at all, but feel she should apologize because a few propaganda puppets got their strings pulled by the media.
“Our NYPD sources admit they don’t believe Beyoncé was advocating hostility toward police in her homage to the Black Panthers,” a statement on the department’s site reads. “Problem is… they say that’s the way it came across for millions of viewers.”
The video of the song did have one clip that contained the words “stop shooting us” spray-painted on a wall. I am still unsure how those words equate to anti-law enforcement. Sounds more like anti-police brutality, which is a noble cause. Nevertheless the screamers will keep screaming, despite there being nothing to scream about, and Beyonce will still make sure that while you are getting your ass in Formation you will be protected. Swag.
