A Los Angeles man claims that he heard Los Angeles Police Department officers disrespecting the late Nipsey Hussle’s family during his funeral yesterday (Apr. 11) over his son’s walkie talkie, reports The Shade Room. The LAPD deny that it was members of the police force. 

Audio of what seems to be LAPD officers intercepted on police radio & caught disrespecting Nips parents, his home-going & celebration SMFH. Then y'all stupid mothafuckas wonder why nobody has faith in the legal system or this corrupt police force/government. This shit is disgusting & the voices in this video if they are in fact police officers should be recognized by other officers & they should be brought to the light !!!! Protect & serve right ??!!?!? Fuck outta here !!! Nips mother was beautiful yesterday & his father stood by her side & showed strength in a time we all needed to see it !!! & although this doesn't speak for every officer in the world I'm pretty sure it does for a vast majority & therein lies the problem. I wasn't even going to post this but I had to use my platform to speak to people & make as many people aware as possible. If it's two civilians on radio conversing it is still disheartening & sick to hear someone talk about his parents etc in this manor.... & this is really how they feel about us. I'm only one man as was Nip & now that he's perished due to another's jealousy & envy it is on ALL OF US to step up individually one at a time until that is a UNIFIED rock & defend not only his honor & legacy but that of all of us that grew up & lived in the same poverty stricken neighborhoods, cities around the world. This is sickening & cannot be tolerated !!!!! Nipsey's passing has shifted the world & his memory is FOREVER !!! We cannot allow this to be heard & turn the other cheek..... & like I stated above, if these are in fact #LAPD officers we want their badges & for them to be brought to the forefront & made example of as this is a time of awakening for all. We don't always have to respond with violence, especially in a time where our brother's mission & passing is bringing about so much love felt around the world. But this, is UNACCEPTABLE by all means !!! #LongLiveNip #TheMarathonContinues ????????????

LA rapper The Game shared the disturbing audio on his Instagram page today (Apr. 12).

You can listen to it in the Instagram post above. Here’s a transcription of some of it: “They have the whole Gotdamn family standing in line. Nipsey Hussle’s mom looks a lot like a male. Dad looks a lot like a female, so go figure. I haven’t seen any of them. And they’re showing his mom and dad. They’re showing highlights from the funeral. No, I’m on channel 11 and they’re not showing any f***ing highlights. Now what they should have done is after the funeral they should have drove the motherf***** and put him in the ground before he starts stinking up the place. Stink when they’re alive. You can only imagine what they smell like when they’re dead.”

“Audio of what seems to be LAPD officers intercepted on police radio & caught disrespecting Nips parents, his home-going & celebration SMFH. Then y’all stupid mothaf**kas wonder why nobody has faith in the legal system or this corrupt police force/government,” The Game wrote.

“This sh** is disgusting & the voices in this video if they are in fact police officers should be recognized by other officers & they should be brought to the light !!!! Protect & serve right ??!!?!? F**k outta here.”

A Youtuber by the name of The Savoy Show Tweeted about the audio and LAPD replied stating that it wasn’t them.

LAPD’s official Twitter account tweeted, “Thx for bringing these disturbing & disrespectful comments to our attention & for stating this was ‘alleged’. 1) We broadcast using digital frequencies & this doesn’t appear to be a digital frequency. 2) Our broadcasts can’t be intercepted using a toy walkie-talkie.”

Nipsey Hussle, born Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was fatally shot on Mar. 31 outside of his apparel store Marathon Clothing in South Los Angeles. Hussle’s homegoing service took place yesterday (Apr. 11) in Los Angles at the Staples Center where over 20,000 people attended.
