Bronx teen blasts 'F–k Tha Police' during slain officer's funeral


A Bronx teenager blasted the N.W.A. song, "F**k Tha Police," on Tuesday as thousands of officers gathered to mourn the loss of Miosotis Familia, who was killed when a man shot her through the window of her police vehicle.

The teen, 16-year-old Julien Rodriguez, told the New York Postthat it was "satisfying" to blast the song out of his apartment window because he hates the police since they killed his older brother and best friend. However, the Post could not find any record of the deaths of the people whose names Rodriguez gave them as his brother and best friend.

"Since they did not show respect for my brother and my friend, why should I show respect to them?" he said.

Around 20 police officers went to his apartment to ask him to turn off his music, with one police officer even speaking to him in Spanish about how he had grown up as a Latino in the community, but it wasn't until the building super told him to turn it off or get kicked out of the building that he did so.
