A New York teenager blasted the NWA rap song “F— Tha Police” out of his apartment window where thousands of cops gathered to mourn slain officer Miosotis Familia, the New York Post reports.
The teen, identified as 16-year-old Julien Rodriguez, told the Post that it felt “satisfying” to repeatedly play the song above the mourning officers.
Rodriguez told the Post that his older brother and best friend had been “unjustifiably” killed by police.
“Since they did not show respect for my brother and my friend, why should I show respect to them?” he told the paper.
Police say roughly 20 officers went to the apartment to ask the teen to stop playing the song. At one point a Latino officer tried to reason with the teen in Spanish.
Rodriguez told the paper he eventually apologized to the police, but only because his family was threatened with eviction from the building.
“I apologized because it was between the house and apologizing,” he told the Post.

Cops at the funeral were infuriated by the show of disrespect.
“This is the s–t we face every day,” a police source griped.
The teen gave The Post the names of his brother and friend who he said were killed by officers, but the paper could not find any record of their deaths.
Meanwhile, the teen admitted that while he hates cops, he feels bad for Officer Familia, who was executed by police-hater Alexander Bonds while she sat in a mobile command vehicle nearby early July 5.
“I feel sympathy for that, because all she was trying to do was take bad people off the street,” the teen said. “It was wrong because she did not do anything wrong, but at the same time, my bro and my best friend died for no reason.”
A man who identified himself as the apartment’s owner later claimed he was going to give the kids the boot over their show of disrespect.
