We should've RIOT when them pigs killed Timothy Stansbury
Timothy Stansbury, Jr. (November 16, 1984 — January 24, 2004) was an unarmed 19-year-old New York City man shot and killed by New York Police Department Officer Richard S. Neri Jr. on January 24, 2004. Officer Neri and a partner were patrolling the rooftop of a housing project in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn at about 1 a.m. Officer Neri, with his gun drawn, approached a rooftop door to check the stairway inside. Neri testified to a Brooklyn grand jury that he fired his standard Glock 17 pistol unintentionally when he was startled as Stansbury pushed open the rooftop door. Stansbury, a resident of an adjoining building, died from one shot in the chest. The grand jury found the shooting to be accidental.

Pigs is a slang word for cops, a negative term to describe them. Thus why he is saying it, a cop killed an INNOCENT boy.
He is saying the people should have rioted against the police when this happened.
