New Zealand police were forced to listen to NWA’s ‘F*** The Police’ when their police radio frequency was hacked. The anti-police brutality song was played multiple times on Friday January 6 when police responded to a possible road rage incident involving a man pointing a gun at a motorist.
According to the Otago Daily Times, Inspector Kevin Lloyd said the disturbance “was putting people in danger” because it was difficult to coordinate the police to respond to real emergencies. Some radios continued to play the song throughout the weekend.
Inspector Lloyd continued “Any interference with a police radio constitutes a risk to public safety, and anyone caught doing this can face a penalty of criminal nuisance and up to one year imprisonment”. Lloyd also said that none of their police radios were missing and concluded that it was a legitimate hacked broadcasting from some other source.
