Did a Cop Threaten 50 Cent’s Life?
New York Police Department commander Emanuel Gonzalez allegedly told officers last June to shoot the rapper on sight, just as 50 Cent was to appear at a police-sanctioned boxing match. The remark, which sources say Gonzalez passed off as a joke, came after 50 Cent reportedly threatened him on Instagram. The NYPD has launched a probe into the incident, while 50 Cent said he’s taking the threat “very seriously.”
How are departments tackling police misconduct? In Los Angeles County, for example, a judge appears ready to uphold a transparency law aimed at unlocking decades of sealed misconduct reports.
