Beyonce recently announced that she will be playing a show at Raymond James Stadium this April in Tampa, Florida.

Given the singer’s race baiting performance at the Super Bowl, which paid homage to the Black Panthers, it seems that she will be without police on hand during the Tampa concert. Policemen in the area are refusing to sign up for the even, according to Fox 13.

Can you blame Florida cops for not signing up? Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance was explicitly anti-cop.

Raw Story reported:

Typically for special events, off-duty officers sign up to pick up extra pay, but  no one seems interested in working when the pop star hits town.

According to Tampa Police Department spokesperson Steve Hegarty, he’s not sure if the lack of willing officers is related to the controversial performance, and that the department would assign officers if none volunteer.

Hegarty reportedly said, “We’re going to staff it because we have a responsibility to do that regardless of how controversial it might be, who the artist might be, or the politician might be. This is a couple of months away, so we’ve still got plenty of time to fill those slots.”
