White Philly Cop Told to Lose Cornrows


Police in Philadelphia say a white officer who came to work with cornrows was ordered by a black superior to get a haircut because the braids violated department standards.
The Philadelphia Daily News reported Monday that Officer Thomas Strain was put on desk duty this month because of the braids, even though the paper reported dozens of black officers wear cornrows.
Police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore says Strain's boss told the officer to cut his hair to look more "professional."
Vanore says officers' hats must fit "in a military manner" over their hair, and that Strain's hat did not. Strain got a haircut; he declined comment to the paper.
Vanore recalled only one black officer with braids in the past several years. He says that officer also was told to get a haircut.

Bam Commentary: We at bvm LOVE the video and the song..It's refreshing to see an artist do his own thing in this industry. It also dope to see him mature as an artist with what he chooses to sing about now.. When we first heard JG on Cherry Bomb we put him as  a pop artist but after  really doing our homework we aren't sure what he can't sing now lol..Perfect Example is he can make you  dance with tracks like Cherry Bomb, Loco, …
