One of the best frontmen in the world, Alice Cooper, spoke in a recent interview with Dave Lawrence of ‘Hawaii Public Radio’ and revealed his opinion about the police violence in the United States.
In the conversation, Alice mentioned that they have been dealing with problems like racism and equality for sixty years, even though he doesn’t meet any racist police officers in his entire life.
Alice stated that only five percent of the police officers are racist, and they are the only ones who do stupid things and get the headlines. Also, Alice said that these five percent definitely weed out as soon as possible.
Here is what Alice Cooper said:
“Well, isn’t it amazing that that was 50, 60 years ago, or something like that, and we’re still dealing with the same problem? You would have thought that that solved the problem. But there’s always that five percent of people that are racist.
To be honest with you, I know a lot of cops. I don’t know one racist cop. But I guarantee you that five percent of the police force in every city has got a racial problem. And those are the guys that get all the headlines because they do all the stupid things.”
“I think we have to look at that like almost in everything. Five percent of the Muslim population — maybe five percent — back ISIS.
The rest of ’em are just like we are. If you put a Muslim family with an American family, they’d have a barbecue and they wouldn’t be even talking about politics, but there’s always that five percent that will upset the entire world.
And I think that’s our problem with the police department. You don’t have a full police department of racists in there; you have maybe a small percentage, and those are the guys that need to be weeded out. I can’t see why we don’t spend the money on getting a committee in every city to weed out the bad guys.”
