For a brief moment, it was thought that the “Drop the Mic Talent Show” Thursday night at Vallejo High School might be shut down due to the occasional use of profanities by students.
Good news for the students who performed, because they had something to say.
Poet Tyler Dudley kicked off the show expressing her fear and anger over the rash of police brutality cases against African-Americans.
During her performance, Dudley asked why police officers double or triple check cars they think may contain drugs, but can’t take the time to check whether they have pulled their Taser stun gun or service weapon before use.
Dudley was referencing several notable cases where law enforcement officials mistakenly used guns instead of their Tasers.
