Video: Snoop And The Game Lead March On LAPD Headquarters
Snoop and The Game have led a march to LAPD headquarters where the force's newest recruits are graduating. The pair emphasized that they come in peace and they said that they wanted to start a dialogue with—not protest—the new recruits.
The Game announced their intentions earlier this morning on Instagram. They invited "ALL GANGS, ALL RACES, ALL GROWN MEN" and asked that women and children stay home: "THIS IS OUR MISSION FOR THEM."
This march comes on the heels of the police killings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La. and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minn. earlier this week, as well as five Dallas police officers being killed in a sniper attack last night.
The pair sent out videos from the scene:
A L.A. Times reporter noted that this wasn't like other kinds of LAPD graduations she's attended. Eric Garcetti and Chief Charlie Beck both offered up comments about the Dallas shooting to the graduating class:
