The Game And The LAPD Promote #StopTheViolence Initiative
The Game continues to lead the way, making his way around Los Angeles, Calif., vocalizing his fight for non-violence and unity.
This time, he teamed up with the Los Angeles Police Department to send out a PSA to the community. The 48-second clip captured police chief Charlie Beck and The Game’s concerns about their city heading downhill. Their fight for a positive change was backed up with devastating statistics, as violence and crime has increased tremendously within the past few years.
“Last year in the city of Los Angeles, almost a thousand people were shot,” said police chief Charlie Beck. “Almost 300 of them died. 80 percent of the victims, and 80 percent of the shooters, were young men of color.”
The Compton rapper’s stance on violence is then heard in the LAPD’s public outreach campaign. “We have to be more positive. We have to stop killing one another. Let’s unite. Stop the violence. Be the change."

These two men are a great example of joining forces to bring forth change. Chief Beck is expected to discuss L.A.'s mid-year crime statistics, along with Mayor Eric Garcetti, on Friday (July 22).
