Did Chris Rock pressure the LAPD ?
LAPD haven’t given up the search for Biggie’s killer and Chris Rock will be happy to hear this.
The government must abhor rap considering they never investigate rappers’ murders joked by comedian Rock in 2004.
"… the U.S. government hates rap. You know why I say that? Because they don't arrest anybody that kills rappers. They don't got no clues, no suspects. They don't have shit when there's a dead rapper. They don't fill out a police report, they don't even have a chalk line when there's a dead rapper. Shit, if you want to get away with murder all you got to do is shoot somebody in the head and put a demo tape in their pocket ... ‘This is a rap killing, let's go home.’ ”
According to CNN, the agencies began to pursue leads again a couple of months ago upon discovering additional evidence and combining the efforts of the Los Angeles Police Department, L.A. County District Attorney’s Office and the FBI.
"I think I was getting too close to the truth," Poole said.
Poole points a finger at former police officer David Mack, who was sent to prison the same year Biggie was killed for robbing a bank. Mack was released from federal prison on May 14.
As to why the case wasn’t solved Poole said, "I think they feared the truth would be a scandal."
