Snoop Dogg & The Game Speak On Ways To Improve Police Relations Within Their Communities
The Game and Snoop Dogg heard the call to action and launched a peaceful march to the LAPD's headquarters on Friday afternoon (July 8). Under the acronym H.U.N.T. (Hate Us Not Today), the West Coast natives brought together all types of people from Los Angeles to harmonize under one cause, which is to improve police relations within their communities.
During the press conference with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, Snoop Dogg added that communication will be one of the major keys within witnessing a change in attitude from the police against the community they're hired to serve.
"We never had communication with police, and we're trying to start a whole new beginning by getting that dialogue and that communication," Snoop said. "The best thing that you can do is to seek for information, and seek for communication because you can't match hate with hate. You have to match hate with love, and that's what we came for today."
"We are really, really destroying humanity as individuals and if you'd like to take responsibility as I am and the people here are, we're doing it as a whole," The Game said. "If we don't stop, then one by one our lives will dwindle away along with our family's and our children's."
The "100" rapper also took to his Instagram account to express his elation in the success of the press conference and march.
"This was a positive moment that will go down in history & I am glad & very appreciative that I was a part of something so impactful," he writes. "This one was for our children & their futures here in LA."
History was made. Mountains were moved. Communication barriers were shattered & dialogue was opened & will continue to broaden in the days & weeks to come. I woke up with a mission.... & by day's end that mission was accomplished & respect was given & displayed in a room full of men with integrity, wisdom, knowledge & power. This wasn't for anyone individually but for all of us as a whole especially our women, children & immediate families. In my opinion this was the 1st BIG step taken by all of us towards a more unified Los Angeles for all of those who live in it & call it home as well as those who visit & appreciate the beauty of our city..... This was a positive moment that will go down in history & I am glad & very appreciative that I was a part of something so impactful........ This one was for our children & their futures here in LA.... Congrats on a win for all parties involved today.. Let us continue on our mission, for God knows I left my home today with nothing but pure intentions & positivity on my heart & it shined through today & created an energy that could be shared by people all across the world....... Aye @SnoopDogg, WE DID THAT !!!!!!
