FOP wants part-time rapper fired for song advocating cop-killing
By day, Rodney Jean Jaques is a firefighter in Mount Airy. He's supposed to be one of the good guys.
Jaques also moonlights as an aspiring rapper, going by the name "Cal Akbar." He had some success two years ago, as one of his songs became the theme for a national campaign about fire prevention.
But Jaques, 30, has suddenly landed himself in some serious hot water with the city's Finest, thanks to another song he created with his rapping alter-ego.
The hard-driving untitled song, which surfaced on the Internet earlier this week, features lyrics that clearly encourage cop-killing.
"I got a surprise for them cops," Jaques raps, as gunfire erupts in the middle of the song. "I hope the news is taping this, 'cause I'm gonna turn pigs into bacon bits."
The song, on a Web site touting Jaques' 2006 CD, "Sin City Vol. 1," and his record company, the "Larsiny Family," plays as cartoon flames burst onto the screen.
Not surprisingly, Jaques' jarring lyrics have incensed the Fraternal Order of Police.
