Response to Disturbing "Hands Up" Video

  I was appalled this past week to learn about a music video that depicts the disturbing imagery shown above and calls for the killing of law enforcement officers. I commend the President of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, Richard Beary, for speaking out against this video. I share Mr. Beary's same sentiment in that we, as a nation, must move forward in a more productive way. Imagery and content like this only divides us.
