Took Patrick Dorismond
Plainclothes asking him where to cop tree
Shot him one time and didn’t have to flee
Well, yo, it was an accident, see
And once again the boys in blue got off scott free
(“Well, I’m white, sooo…I own this place?”)
Patrick Dorismond was shot and killed in 2000 by undercover NYPD officers following an altercation which stemmed from the officers asking Dorismond where they could purchase marijuana. A grand jury declined to indict the officer responsible as they felt it was an accident.
