Motherfuck the jury and who ever love em
Why you have to leave it to Beaver?
Now I'm chasin Beaver' ass with a cleaver
With the sling, sling, sling and chop, chop, chop
The officers' jury consisted of Ventura County residents: eleven White and one Latino. On April 29, 1992, the jury acquitted three of the officers, but could not agree on one of the charges against Powell.
Ice Cube, is assured, of the jury’s racist beliefs and wants to revenge them for the misstrial.
He compares them to the ‘Cleavers’, the family of the 50’s show ‘Leave It to Beaver’.
The show followed the life of a mid 50’s, average middle class white family, through their son ‘Beaver’, but it was widely judged of passing racist messages.
Ice Cube, makes a play on the family name (Cleavers), with a Cleaver (knife), which he plans on using to slaughter the main character (Beaver), aka the juries.
