It’s being reported that Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez that has had issues with 50 in the past apparently told officers to “shoot him on sight.” Gonzales allegedly made the comment on June 7, 2018, during roll call at the 72nd Precinct stationhouse, shortly before Curtis Jackson‘s planned attendance at an NYPD-sanctioned boxing match.
A source tells the New York Daily News, “The inspector just said that at roll call,” I’m like WTF.”
Inspector Gonzalez is reported to claim it was a joke, but the comment made its way up the chain of command and sparked an investigation that a department spokesman says “The incident is under internal review.”
Prior to the aforementioned incident, Gonzales filed an aggravated harassment complaint against 50 Cent prompted by the G-Unit founder writing his familiar “Get The Strap” catchphrase in a since-deleted Instagram post about Gonzales targeting the Brooklyn club Love and Lust.

50 chimed in on the developments.
“This is how I wake up this morning,” he wrote on Twitter. “This guy Emanuel Gonzales is a dirty cop abusing his POWER. The sad part is this man still has a badge and a gun. I take this threat very seriously and im consulting with my legal counsel regarding my options moving forward.”This is how I wake up this morning, ??♂️ This guy Emanuel Gonzales is a dirty cop abusing his POWER.
