MICHAEL BROWN SHOOTING

 

On November 28, 2014, Richard Rossi was front page in the news again regarding the controversy over the shooting of Michael Brown. Richard wrote and recorded a protest song expressing his feelings about a grand jury’s decision not to charge a white police officer in the death of the unarmed black teen in Ferguson, Missouri.  “I wrote the song in five minutes as a way to express my emotions about the danger of trigger-happy police,” Rossi said. “I filmed it on my laptop at my kitchen table and uploaded it to YouTube.” Rossi uploaded the video on Nov. 26, and provided the song’s lyrics in the video description. Here is a sample from the song's beginning, printed in the Los Angeles Daily News: "Down at the courthouse on a Monday afternoon/Justice was thrown right out the window when a young white cop entered the room."
