EXCLUSIVE: Chevy Woods Talks Mike Brown Shooting, Says Slavery Still Exists + MORE (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Chevy Woods is coming straight out of Gangland with a few solutions to the recent uprisings in Ferguson, M.O. following Michael Brown’s tragic death. In the FIRST PART of our EXCLUSIVE interview with Woods, the Taylor Gang co-founder speaks on how his experience with the police is similar to that of Michael Brown, how he’d handle protests if he was President and more backstage at his show at Grammercy Theatre last night (August 20th).

The population of Woods’ home city, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania is roughly 26% African American with over 60% of the population being White. On November 11th, 2012, unarmed African American teenager Leon Ford Jr. was shot and paralyzed by Pittsburg police with no weapon recovered after police confronted the man in his car over suspicions of gun possession. According to Woods, the experience of police brutality exhibited in Michael Brown’s shooting is one he is all too familiar with:

Same thing. I mean, I’m just going to be honest. It’s usually not too many Black officers that are coming to the neighborhood like ‘Hey, what are you doing?’ It’s harassment and slavery still and all of that stuff still. It’s still going on. It might be hidden a little bit but for something like this to happen, or something like that to happen, you see it. Now it’s on world news. It’s right in your face.

A major criticism of the handling of the Ferguson, M.O. riots and protests has been Gov. Jay Nixon ordering National Guard soldiers and military police in Ferguson this Monday (August 18th). If Chevy Woods was the President of the United States, that would have been vetoed after assessment of the crisis:

Some things will die down. If somebody loot a store, you can take everything out of there but then what you going to do next? It’s just like I wouldn’t send no army out there. That’s all. I would’ve just handled it with whatever the local police or state troopers, whatever that is. Just to make it like a warzone was totally out of order to me.

    If Mikey hadn’t been high and all paranoid cause he just stole a box of cigars he prolly wouldn’t have assaulted the cop in the first place resulting in him getting shot. But then he was a member of the Cripps and most likely dint much care. Like Elvis said, “In the Ghetto”.
