Rapper 50 Cent Says ‘Killing Police Officers Is the Wrong Idea,’ Suggests Protesters Should Become a Part of the Solution by Becoming Good Police Officers


Singer Alicia Keys recently called on a few famous friends to create a compelling video that describes “23 ways you could be killed if you are black in America.”

Beyoncé, Bono, Rihanna, Taraji P. Henson and Chris Rock are among celebrities whose voices are heard.

Beyond those powerful voices, there is a growing chorus to end the senseless bloodshed. Rapper and actor Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson added his voice to that choir in a Monday morning interview with Studio 5.

“I have been really, really quiet about it,” said Jackson, who is in the middle of promoting the third season of his Starz original series “Power.”

“This is the first time that I am actually saying something about it. Well, I have been quiet because I didn’t have a solution for it. I think the system that we have in place doesn’t work without good people. So, I think some of the people that are protesting that are really passionate about it should actually become police officers.”

“So the idea of killing police officers is the wrong idea,” he said. “And they should actually become a part of the solution by being good police officers.”
