At about 7 a.m. in Los Angeles on Friday, The Game and Snoop Dogg mobilized a peaceful protest march to the LAPD's headquarters to coincide with the department's graduation ceremony for new recruits. Operation H.U.N.T. (Hate Us Not Today/Hunt Us Not Today) aims to create dialogue and combat police brutality, brought yet again to the fore this week after the killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. The march can be seen underway in the video above; it launched with the following image:
On Thursday night, Game said he...
"...hopes that it spreads across our nation & other rappers, athletes, entertainers & people with money, resources & a platform show face & do more than just POST on social media so we can show the world that when in conflict, we can be UNIFIED as a human race & remain UNITED to decrease the senseless murders & violence across the board on both sides."
Operation H.U.N.T. comes directly after a peaceful #BlackLivesMatter protest in Dallas ended with one or multiple snipers murdering five police officers and leaving seven more injured. CNN reports it's "the deadliest single incident for U.S. law enforcement since September 11, 2001." Dallas police chief David Brown said:
"The suspect said he was upset about Black Lives Matter. He said he was upset about the recent police shootings. The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated that he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers."
Below, see Snoop Dogg's update from the LAPD headquarters. "This is how you make moves, man, you make it happen," he says. "You get some dialogue, some understanding with the new recruits before they hit the streets."
