Los Angeles, CA – The Los Angeles Police Department denied involvement regarding audio from walkie-talkies that captured unidentified men speaking disrespectfully toward Nipsey Hussle and his family during Hussle’s memorial service.
The official LAPD Twitter account addressed the rumor, writing, “We broadcast using digital frequencies & this doesn’t appear to be a digital frequency.”
They continued, “Our broadcasts can’t be intercepted using a toy walkie-talkie.”
Thx @thesavoyshow 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 https://t.co/ig1SuiKWHW

A Los Angeles father captured the audio from his son’s walkie-talky and claimed the voices belonged to LAPD officers using the same radio frequency.
Footage has surfaced online from a Los Angeles father claiming that his son’s walkie-talky allegedly picked up LAPD Radio Frequencies. While listening, he hears the alleged LAPD Officers disrespecting family of #NipseyHussle while he’s being buried. Beyond disrespectful. pic.twitter.com/kyGROAp0lB

The audio includes men speaking about Nipsey and his family at the service, saying, “Nipsey Hussle’s mom looks a lot like a male… His dad looks a lot like a female, so go figure.” The voices continued, “They should’ve drove the mother fucker and put him in the ground before he starts stinking up the place.”
Allegations that the voices belonged to LAPD officers spurred anger on social media.
The Game posted the audio clip on Instagram, writing, “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 !!!”

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 🏁🏁🏁
