Hackers broadcast NWA's F-Tha Police on police radio frequency

New Zealand police forced to listen to N.W.A.'s 'Fuck The Police' on radio scanners

The song, meant to protest police brutality and racial profiling, caused a great deal of controversy when it was first released in the U.S. No American radio stations would play it, and at one point the group received a letter from the Federal Bureau of Investigation expressing its disapproval (although according to their manager Jerry Heller, the letter turned out to be the work of a "single pissed-off bureaucrat with a bully pulpit").

"It was putting people in danger", Lloyd told the newspaper.

In addition to playing the N.W.A. version of the song, the troublemaker also cranked a Rage Against the Machine cover of the song, reports The Independent. He mentioned that "F*ck Tha Police" is disrupting work.

According to the Otago Daily Times, the song interfered with a call out to the armed offenders squad on Friday, when a suspect on a motorway had a gun pointed at a motorist. "There's no question that if it carries on and if they do what they're doing it will delay a response". He cited an instance wherein he had to coordinate a police response to an emergency in Oamaru.

Abreu qualifies for Chili Bowl final with A Main win
The NASCAR star drove to a commanding victory in Tuesday night's opening night of the Super Bowl of Midget Racing. Abreu had not raced since September because of injuries he suffered in a race at Eldora Speedway.

Lloyd said police had some confidence that the interference was not being made through a police radio since they require specific chargers that would be hard to source. Likewise, the use of police radios also needs a specific charger, which is not easy to find.

Lloyd said the force has ruled out a stolen police radio as the source, given than no radios have been reported missing. The inspector warned that any interference with police radio is a criminal offense.

The risk of interfering with police radio frequencies can be punished by up to one year behind bars.

This is not the first time that someone hacked police radios on the lower North Island.
