Michael Brown Parody Song at L.A. Charity Event


Reports of a horrific racist song at charity event 'and he's dead, dead Michael Brown,' where several members of the Los Angeles Police Department were in attendance. Determination: Real

According to a December 23, 2014 article by TMZ there was a charity event at an Elks Lodge in Glendale, CA where the lyrics of "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" were changed to make a parody of Ferguson's Michael Brown. The event was attended by several retired and current members of the  Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). 

The gathering was the finale of a charity golf event that was organized by retired LAPD Officer Joe Myers, who served 32 years in the LAPD. A spokesperson for the Elks Lodge told reporters that the event was not an Elks sponsored event and they are investigating the incident.
