50 Cent is seeking objectivity in his quest to drain the NYPD swamp.
The ongoing feud between 50 Cent and NYPD officer Emmanuel Gonzalez continues. After Gonzalez reportedly told officers to "shoot the rapper on sight" during a roll call, Fif has been campaigning to tarnish the officer's name; should Gonzalez indeed have issued such a request, the campaign is fueled on a sound basis. Sadly, however, it would appear the court of public opinion has been left divided, if the article cited on 50's IG is to be believed.

"Community rallies to defend NYPD commanding officer after his dispute with 50 Cent," reads the headline. Is it possible to suggest that 50 is being dubbed a "boy who cried wolf" in this instance? After all, he's been so merciless toward his opponents, responding without remorse to perceived slights and age-old grudges. Yet now, in the midst of a genuinely disturbing and escalating situation, 50 Cent has come to discover his usual tricks have dulled in their efficacy.
"What dispute, he just told a bunch of Cops at roll call to shoot me on sight," writes the rapper, in an IG statement of sorts. "The 8 Good Cops And a supervisor reported him. Emanuel Gonzalez is a dirty Cop." Of course, that might not be enough to sway the "community" cited by Spectrum news, but it's certainly a start. As of now, Gonzalez has yet to be reprimanded for his conduct. On the contrary, the NYPD has actually openly supported Gonzalez, claiming 50 Cent had issued his own threats.
