Police Protest Outside Beyoncé’s Houston Concert, Continue to Make Horrible PR Decisions

Police, who continue to insist that Beyoncé’s “Formation” video is somehow “anti-police” (it’s not), protested outside Bey’s hometown concert in Houston. Members of the Coalition of Police and Sheriffs, or C.O.P.S. for short, stood a mile away from NRG Stadium and shone a blue light toward the venue. Tony Ragsdale, a member of C.O.P.S., told KHOU11, “Some of her performances we believe to be anti-police.” They also held up posters of Chris Evans’s Captain America (which suggests they either didn’t see Civil War, or didn’t understand it). As Bey said last month, “But anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken. I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of the officers who sacrifice themselves to keeps us safe. But let’s be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things.”
