Chicago rapper and philanthropist Rhymefest posted a video to Twitter today documenting his experience at his local police station, where he attempted to report a robbery in which he was held at gunpoint Sunday morning. The video shows the rapper experiencing difficulty in his attempt to file a report, not receiving the proper cooperation from the cops, as he says in the clip,
“I don’t feel comfortable because I feel like I’m being treated … when the camera goes off, you all start telling me to get out, I can’t make a report.”
Rhymefest then posted a video of his attempt to report the robbery at his local police station, near Chatham on Chicago’s South Side. In the video, the rapper, whose real name is Che Smith, can be heard describing the incident while police tell that he’s not allowed to film the exchange and that he has to leave leave the station.
You wonder we don’t report crimes? The police treated me disgustingly pic.twitter.com/fY9VQrqDpz
