As thousands of New York police officers gathered at World Changers Church to mourn the loss of Officer Miosotis Familia, 16-year-old Julien Rodriguez decided to be as disrespectful as possible: he blasted NWA’s infamous “F—K Tha Police” from his third-floor bedroom window—for all to hear. Rodriguez probably wasn’t expecting to be kicked out of his apartment for disrupting a cop’s funeral, but sometimes justice is served in small ways.
The apartment building’s superintendent, Danny Morales, said he immediately called his tenant and asked him to put a stop to Rodriguez’s disrespectful behavior immediate. “I called him and told hi he needs to take care of this right away,” Morales explained.
He added that his own nephew is a police officer for the 40th precinct, which is relatively close by. “I wouldn’t want to see him lying in a box also. We need to respect the police,” Morales commented.
It seems the teenage Rodriguez did not share these sentiments, however. Sources say Rodriguez began playing gangster rap early in the morning when officers began gathering for Officer Familia’s funeral at the church just around the corner from his apartment.
As the memorial was about to begin, Rodriguez started blasting “F—K Tha Police” repeatedly—until 20-or-so officers paid him a visit.
The apartment’s primary tenant, who was identified only as “Jesus,” said Rodriguez and his sister are “lowlifes” and has maintained he had nothing to do with the teen’s disrespectful behavior. “They’re gone. The case is closed. They’re no longer in my house. I don’t know where they went,” he commented.
According to Rodriguez, he is anti-police because the NYPD killed his brother and a friend, but sources say his claims could not be validated based on the names provided. Regardless, his disgusting behavior during a cop’s funeral is inexcusable.
Officer Miosotis Familia was shot in the back of the head while sitting in an NYPD truck and filling out her official, memo book. Sources say the gunman fired through the vehicle’s window without warning.
“The police lost a family member. We all need to come together and respect that,” Superintendent Morales commented.
This extreme anti-police rhetoric has to stop; people should have enough decency to respect fallen officers during their funerals.
