Kid Cudi Arrest A Case Of Mistaken Identity What Else Is New?

More and more each day I see black men being targeted and when the police can’t find anything wrong it’s always the same old song a case of mistaken identity. Check out this excerpt from hiphopdx about what happened below.

In what appears to have been a case of mistaken identity, Ohio-rapper Kid Cudi and members of his entourage were momentarily arrested and held at gunpoint in Los Angeles.

Shortly following a photoshoot with NME Magazine at a Los Angeles store yesterday (December 21), the two SUV’s Kid Cudi and his entourage were traveling in were pulled over.

Cudi and crew were surrounded by a number of officers and police cars and ordered to get out of the SUV’s they were traveling in.

Upon realizing they had the wrong people police let the men go and revealed that they thought they were suspects wanted for a burglary that happened in the area.

“Who knows, really, the story changed a bunch,” Kid Cudi told NME. “I’m just happy to be back. I’m a free man! For that moment I was not free. I was in handcuffs. It did not feel very comfortable.”

Cudi also explained to NME that he has no hard feelings towards the cops and that “…a lot of shit goes down [in Los Angeles]. And these cops have to use force. So it’s, like, I understand that they were doing their job. I just wish we weren’t in that place at that time.

On a side note: Talk about compliant? So that is what it is today huh brothers. Damn shame that this happens so much that you actually being to resolve in your mind that it is ok. It is ok for cops to point a gun at you and they don’t even know if your armed or if your even the suspect. If you ask me I smell bullshit and Cudi should have hired a lawyer immediately and filed suit against their asses. A case of mistaken identity my ass. The target was a black man rolling in nice SUV’s in an area where they are not used to seeing us. When will this bullshit stop?
