New York police opened an investigation into a commander who allegedly issued a violent threat about 50 centimes to other officers.
The commander of the 72nd constituency of Sunset Park in Brooklyn, NY, Assistant Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez, is currently under investigation for statements he's made in June 2018. During a roll call, he reportedly told his colleagues to "shoot him at sight" referring to the Queens Music Mogul, according to a New York Daily News report published Sunday (17 February). Even more troubling, this statement was made before 50 people attended an NYPD sanctioned boxing match in the Bronx.
One of the store's sources recalled the incident as follows: "The inspector has just said this on the phone. I am like WTF. "
Gonzalez and 50 had a little history before the incident of the call. A month ago, Gonzalez had filed a harassment complaint against 50 Cent, saying the rapper had threatened him on Instagram. He cites the use by the 1950s of the term "Get the strap" in reference to the commander who belittles two of the rapper's favorite night spots. He also said that supporters in his fifties had been harassed and threatened as part of his complaint. 50 finally took the position and no charges were filed. Gonzalez said his statement was a joke.
TMZ learned that Fif may be considering taking legal action. The rapper 's representatives stated on the website: "Mr Jackson takes this threat very seriously and is consulting his lawyer to find out what options are available to him. he has not been informed of this threat by the NYPD and even more so that Gonzalez continues to wear a badge and a firearm ".
50 also reacted to the news via social media. "That's how I woke up this morning, guy This guy, Emanuel Gonzales, is a dirty cop who abuses his POWER," he subtitled a picture of the article . "What's sad is that this man still has a badge and a gun. #NYnotSafe #TheGangstagotabadge."
