Travis Barker does not like the police, y'all. In fact, he dislikes them so much that he's not afraid to go on record saying so. In a brief, walk-by interview with TMZ, Barker was asked by a photographer for the gossip site whether LAPD picks on people like him. He responded thusly:


"I do, I think they stereotype a lot, and I think uh, I f**king hate the police. I think they're out of control. You see it on the news every day, them like, I don't know, killing teens cauyse they think they have something in their cuffs...I see all sorts of stories. Mine was really minor, but I just think they kind of overdo it sometimes, they get ahead of themselves."

Clearer words were never spoken.
