The Raleigh Police Protective Association took a vote, and they will not be boycotting providing security for Beyonce’s upcoming concert at Carter-Finley Stadium on May 3.
“We listened to all of our members and we came to an agreement that this was the best course of action,” President Matt Cooper said.
The vote came after some police unions said her “Formation” video and Super Bowl performance were anti-police. But more than 500 officers vetoed the vote to boycott.
“While we do have concerns over the perceived anti-law enforcement images Ms. Knowles used in her most recent music video and her halftime performance at the Super Bowl, we voted unanimously not to boycott the May 3 concert,” Cooper said.
The union, instead, is encouraging officers to make an individual decision whether or not to volunteer to work the event off-duty.
But there were those officers who still refuse to provide security. I guess they’re letting Beyoncé come between them and getting those extra overtime coins.
