Taxpayers pay their salaries - but that hasn't stopped two Bronx public defenders from appearing in a vile online rap video that urges black people to kill NYPD cops.

The sickening video, for a rap called "Hands Up," shows black men holding guns to cops' heads and features the disgusting lyric, "For Mike Brown and Sean Bell, a cop got to get killed."

The video also shows a grieving mother walking into The Bronx Defenders office on 161st Street, where she is comforted by one of the lawyers.

The attorneys' participation left cops furious. The Bronx Defenders organization has pulled in more than $40 million in city funding in the past two years.

"It's reprehensible that the city and its taxpayers are essentially supporting a video that encourages the idea of shooting police officers," said a police source.

The end of the video even features a banner ad for The Bronx Defenders complete with the organization's website address and Twitter handle.

"This video goes well beyond the parameters for protected speech and constitutes a serious threat to the lives of police officers," said Patrolmen's Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch.
The video opens with rappers Uncle Murda and Maino holding handguns to the head of an actor depicting a white NYPD cop and features footage of police brutality and images from the chokehold death of Eric Garner.

The Bronx Defenders said in a statement it didn't know the final video would include images of cops with guns held to their heads and that it has asked for the video to be taken down.

The statement didn't mention the anti-cop lyrics.

The organization has received about $107 million from the Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice since 2007, according to city comptroller records.

Typical liberals. Feign ignorance...
Worthless whores.

Be extra careful out there boys and girls. I think we are going to see an increase in attacks on us this coming year. Stay safe.

I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

I'm at a loss for words. That shocks me to no end. People are going to get bolder figuring that we won't fight back because of what MIGHT happen. Scary as shit.

Oh, and Uncle MURDA?!?!? A true "INNOCENT" man who is against violence and only did this video to make a point. His name is actually Italian and it's his real name. If he was found dead at the hands of a rival gang (or rapper) who would protest the street gangs? NO ONE!
