Sonic Overload 6/18/12

I admit it, there’s an anti-cop theme at times on this week’s show. I’ve got my reasons, namely being stopped by a state trooper for having a burnt out brake light while driving into the city last week. I don’t want to go into a lot of detail but let’s just say it sure as hell felt like a fishing expedition and you’d think he’d have better things to do.

The other reason is to mark the death of Rodney King, the African-American man who was brutally beaten by the LAPD in 1992 and that sparked off some of the worst riots in the city’s history. It also influenced part of a certain song that concludes this week’s show. “Cop Killer” was actually performed before the King beating but Ice-T added some references to the incident on the recorded version. The song created quite a controversy to say the least. Charlton Heston quoted lyrics from it at a Time-Warner (the parent company for Ice’s label at the time) conference and the song was yanked from the Body Count album. Getting back to Rodney King, though, he drowned in his swimming pool and the death is still under investigation at I type this... I hope he’ll eventually be able to rest in peace.
