Guyanese cop look like me (speedin’!)
Rolled up, plainclothes tucked, gun in the holster
Said not to do that.
Heems recounts a run in with a Guyanese cop in the 90s for speeding, and getting off with a warning.
Notably there is a large South Asian expatriate population in Guyana. Heems makes note of his ethnicity to contrast with the earlier lines about an NYPD cop that is an “Irish dude” as well as to point out that the cop an he are of the same (South Asian) ancestry.
