Night stick action, when it's late and it's dark
Or just a bunch of bullseyes when they aimin' them Glocks
Joell is addressing police brutality.
He is saying that police wait until “it’s late and it’s dark” so they don’t get caught committing the cowardly acts of ganging up on innocent people purely based on their ethnicity.
This also shows that Joell has a lack of trust for the police and would be worried that he and his friends could end up getting shot without even doing anything wrong.
