Big Snoop Dogg once again pisses off the racist right. Back in March he appeared at the SXSW in Austin. He posted his daily routine on Instagram. The social media and the junk food media is pissed that the rap veteran posed with a Texas state trooper.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety,Trooper Billy Spears got reprimanded by superiors for allowing rapper Snoop Dogg to take a picture with him.
The Dallas Morning News reports Clevenger said the Gilmer-based trooper was called to Austin two weeks ago to help work during the music festival. Spears was in uniform with the distinctive Stetson in a secured area when the rap star and actor stopped and asked if he could get a quick photo with the trooper.
Clevenger said Snoop Dogg’s publicist took the picture.
Snoop Dogg posted the picture on Instagram, along with the line, “Me n my deputy dogg”
DPS officials saw the posting and cited Spears for deficiencies that require counseling for posing with a known criminal.
Calvin Broadus, aka Snoop Dogg, has been convicted several times of drug possession. In 1993, he faced a murder charge when his bodyguard shot and killed a rival gang member. Snoop Dogg and the bodyguard eventually were acquitted of the charge.
Clevenger said that Spears, had no knowledge of drug convictions.
“Troopers get called down to work these events all the time and sometimes people want a picture with them,” Clevenger said.
Because the action taken against Spears called for “counseling” and was not a formal disciplinary action, the trooper has no means of appeal.
The counseling reprimand read: “While working a secondary employment job, Trooper Spears took a photo with a public figure who has a well-known criminal background including numerous drug charges. The public figure posted the photo on social media and it reflects poorly on the Agency.”
An entertainer poses with the law and the Texas Board of Safety orders the officer to get counseling.
There's something else brewing between Spears and his superiors. He once complained to higher ups about inappropriate behavior by some in the uniform.
He believes its retaliation.
Snoop Dogg teams up with Pharrell again. His newest album BUSH will be released on Columbia Records in May. Last album was a reggae album when he called himself Big Snoop Lion.
Snoop Dogg appeared with Hulk Hogan at a honorary WWE introduction. He also was at the Justin Bieber Comedy Central Roast.
