(Newser) – An aspiring Brooklyn rapper is suing the NYPD because he says officers humiliated him by making him rap for his freedom, reports the New York Post. Quinshon Shingles, 28, got handcuffed in a friend's home as police conducted a search, and the lawsuit says that when the "vicious, wicked, and cold-hearted" officers learned he hoped to be a rapper, they told him to rap an entire song and promised to let him go if he did well. He "was thus compelled to perform a rap song for his freedom," per the complaint; they undid the cuffs and released him, and now he's suing for false imprisonment.

If you actually committed the crime, you got the better deal but you didn't get the better deal if you didn't do the crime.

Yep, an ignorant thug will always stick up for an ignorant thug. The police should have arrested the thug and brought him to jail. But they were nice and said we will let you go if you prove you are a rapper by singing. He sang and was released. Even though he was freed, the morons still complain.
