Amadou Diallo Didn't Have A Gun
Amadou Diallo didn't have a gun Amadou Diallo wasn't a threat Amadou Diallo didn't hurt anyone Amadou Diallo was a target. He was shot dead for no good reason In the vestibule of his home
Amadou Diallo lived in the Bronks
Where he was shot dead by four cops
When he reached into his wallet
To pull out his wallet
Let me tell you about one of those cops
His name is Kenneth Boss and he's killed before.
I'm concerned he's going to do it again.
Unless we take away his badge and his weapon.
It's a license to kill unarmed black men.
They were undercover and wearing bulletproogf vests
"I was wearing blue jeans," one of them said under oath.
But still they acted like he was the threat.
And they pumped his body full of lead.
They didn't shoot him once,
They didn't shoot him twice,
They shot him 41 times,
They weren't content just to tke his life.
It wasn't self defense it was homicide.
Amadou Diallo didn't have a gun,
Amadou Diallo wasn't a threat,
Amadou Diallo didn't hurt anyone,
Amadou Diallo hasn't had justice yet.
After they killed him they shook down his roommate
We're they trying to find out who his enemies were
Were they trying to pin it on somebody else
Were they trying to get away with murder.
