Controversy over Dallas police lieutenant's rap video
Dallas police lieutenant's rap video raises questions | kvue.com Austin
A website, called Big Rush In, highlights a local rapper named Lucille Baller. But it's "Baller's" other job that is bringing the artist unwanted attention from the Dallas Police Department.
“Lucy keep it real, I'm going to tell you like it is. Don't push Ms. Lucy, because you won't like the consequences," the lyrics of the song say. "Lucy got a drawer full of all day suckers, don't mess with me, or I will shoot the [expletive], 'cuz Lucille Baller she been to hell and back."
She boasts with threats towards those who cross her, like many rappers.
But the woman in the videos is no ordinary rapper. Behind the big wigs and short skirts is Dallas Police Lieutenant Regina Smith, who commands two investigative units at DPD.
She also lost her husband in the line of duty in 2009. The city mourned with her as she courageously laid her husband to rest.
On the website, she is wearing her police uniform and talks about the department. While sitting a table talking to some women, she says, "And you know what I would do to somebody who tried to take advantage of me? You see this bullet right here? I'll stick it from the rooter to the tooter and bring it out."
