On the latest episode of Busted Open Radio host Bully Ray Dudley welcomed his long-time tag partner D-Von Dudley onto the show to discuss the ongoing protests around the world in the name of George Floyd, who was murdered at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer.
Bully even brings up a story of a time he and D-Von got pulled over by the police, and remembers D-Von warning him that the officer would shoot him if things got too heated.
Bully Ray: So, Houston, Compaq Center, you’re driving, you’re doing about a 100 miles an hour. You get pulled over, the cop asks you to get out of the car. You get out of the car, then I got out of the car like five minutes later and I came to the back by the trunk and you and the cop were just talking and then I think I said to the cop, ‘Officer, what’s the problem?’ And you looked at me and you said, ‘Bubba, not now. He’ll shoot me. He won’t shoot you.’ Now we’ve been laughing about that story for years, but now, it kinda takes on a different meaning and a different tone. Did you really, truly feel that way back then?’
D-Von Dudley: You know, I get it that some officers, again, like I said, whether you’re black, white, Latino, it doesn’t matter. You always have that fear of probably once you walk out that door, never coming home. But that’s a chance that you take when you decide to basically police the area that you’re doing and making sure that justice should be done with all. But I don’t understand, again, some of the actions that are taken by some people that look at a race of people and basically just decide that they’re all criminals, they’re all this and that and blah, blah, blah. They’re not good citizens and that’s wrong. It’s something that shouldn’t be done.
