I understand the tension with cops versus criminal or hip-hop artist. But with all the tension how about the way his mother feel who has been faithful member in the church for over twenty years and loves that her son is doing something postive or the police officers who first counsins are strippers at your favorite club entertaining criminals or hip-hop artists. How does she feel? Awkward Just Saying!
