Lyrics-
-=-=-=-

When cops are taken care a business I can understand
But the L.A. story's gone way out of hand.
there acts of aggression, they say, they're justified
but it seems an obsession has started from the inside

There shooting anyone who even tries to run
there shooting little kids with toy guns.
Take it to a jury, but they don't give a damn
'cause the one who tells the truth is always the policeman.

Beat all the niggers,
beat whoever you see
don't need a reason
(we're) L.A.P.D.

The city of L.A. feels like a prison.
Helicopters overhead and bullets wizzen by.
Martial law just ain't no solution
Police brutality's just social pollution

Beat all the white trash
Beat whoever you see
don't need a reason
(we're) L.A.P.D.

They say they're keeping the peace- but i'm not buyin' it
'cause a billy club ain't much of a pacifier.
'Protecting your freedom', now thats just a lie -
Its an excuse for power thats more like an alibi.

Law and order doesn't really matter
when your the one getting bruised and battered
You take it to a jury they'll throw it in your face
'cause justice in L.A. comes in a can of mace.

Beat all the niggers
Beat whoever you see
Don't need a reason
(we're) L.A.P.D......L.A.P.D
