According to RZA in The Wu-Tang Manual:
There was an actual police officer named Lough running wild in Shaolin. He was a regular harasser of us back then — he locked U-God up, chased Meth (Method Man), and actually killed one of our people. When you hear “Can It Be All So Simple”, and they say, “Case was killed by the cops”, Lough is the cop they’re talking about. He was just a mean white kid on some Robocop shit.
He is also referred to in Method Man’s verse on the Wu song “The Heart Gently Weeps”
