Video: Seattle rapper talks "Police Brutality" after woodcarver’s death
"You don’t protect or serve you extort and harass. You took the job for the power of the gun and the badge," he says

SEATTLE — A rapper by the name of K.R.U.E. has recorded a song and created a video that he calls “Police Brutality.”
The song is in response to the shooting death of a deaf Seattle woodcarver by the name of John T. Williams, who was shot and killed by Officer Ian Birk. The shooting was found to be unjustified by a review board and Birk is no longer with the department.
We’ve embedded the video below, but here are some lyrics to get you started:
"Everyday we wake up for you to protect and serve
"Tell me, how do y’all sleep at night?
"Protect: To defend something you care about
"We need to stand up ‘cause they’re out of control
