The highly-anticipated release of music moguls Dr. Dre and Ice Cube‘s Straight Outta Compton has sparked some negative reactions from the Los Angeles Police Department.
According to reports, various LAPD cops are upset
over the N.W.A. biopic’s release because of how it portrays police on the big screen.
Former L.A. City Councilman Dennis Zine, who was himself an LAPD cop and headed up the Police Protective League, tells us, “It’s a terrible time to release a movie like this. It adds fuel to the fire for hating cops.” The cops we spoke with are bitter, especially because they say they’ve spent a lot of time and energy creating bonds in areas where police abuse was once prevalent.
