Police Union Responds to Ice-T Tirade

This whole Ice-T versus the NYPD saga isn’t over quite yet. When news of Ice-T’s arrest and booking for having a suspended license spread earlier this week, the OG rapper-turned-actor lashed out against the NYPD, calling his arresting officer a “punk b—- rookie cop” on Twitter and generally showing that his gangster pedigree is nothing to be messed with. It was definitely the entertainer’s best tirade since he told folk musician Aimee Mann to “eat a hot bowl of d—-” back in April.

Now, the former TV cop is getting a stern talking to from the local police union (known as the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association). Patrick Lynch, the association’s president, is likely alarmed at Ice-T’s comments but copped a cool yet stern attitude when talking to the New York Post. “Ice-T may play a police officer on TV, but his disdain for law enforcement is well-documented,” Lynch said. “Real police officers enforce real laws that exist to keep everyone safe, even a disrespectful, former rap performer-turned-actor, whether he likes it or not.”

While we feel like Lynch sounds a little like a condescending father forcing his kid to go to summer camp, it’s understandable that he had to respond after Ice-T’s comments caused such embarrassment for the NYPD on a national level.
