Chris Carroll: 2Pac Hating Police Didn’t Mean We Didn’t Want to Solve the Case

Chris Carrol sat down with DJ Vlad to discuss being the responding officer at 2Pac’s murder scene, and how the lack of cooperation from the superstar’s entourage may have hindered the case. Cooper also discusses why he believes the case is closed, citing the death of the main suspect and lack of evidence as the main reasons. Watch above.

    vlad showed his true feelings on this video towards blacl people, 2 pac and black panthers. he basically paints a picture of pac like he jus hated all cops and tried to kill them because he was raised by a blk panther and we all know they want to kill all pigs which is not true

    Vlad be pissing me off sometimes but I definitely appreciate the flood of interviews about Pac's murder investigation. Will it change much? No, of course not. It's too late, as Carroll said. But shout out to Vlad for the wide range of interviews on the subject. I know that wasn't easy to orchestrate.

    "From the jump, we got no help from the hospital administrator or the Vegas PD. We knew that he would continue to get threats, we knew that he wasn't safe. He was in a room on the first floor — a room that was easily accessible from the outside.

    Yaasmyn Fula, who was his manager at the time, she was basically the general of the hospital and we were the soldiers. She was running the show.

    Also, all of his security guards that he normally would have, we couldn't get a hold of them either."

    I commend Officer Chris Carrol for coming forward with his account of that night. It served no beneficial notoriety to be ridiculed for his story, so I find that very credible. A police conspiracy in all likelihood could never rise above the level of suspicion at best. A very real part of black culture, history and experience can not afford to dismiss such suspicion or distrust of police in general. It is what it is on that matter of dispute.

    I would love to believe that if the Tupac Murder Investigation had started by accepting that there were forces (good or bad) with an indirect indifference to solving this case, there would have been more zealousness to prove the black community wrong about police. it still stands that on a big fight night with high traffic congestion, a frenzied white Cadillac pulled off a no -speed drive-by shooting of a world renowned rap artist/actor with police on bicycles or bodyguard/police in car and on foot unable to pursue or coordinate the apprehension of said suspects in a timely manner given knowledge of the only possible routes of escape. It reminds you of the Malcolm X assassination escape artists. Incredible luck right?

    As credible as this officer is as an individual is not the problem herein. The problem is that anything possible favorable situation to help police apprehend suspects that night had mysteriously not been executed or even discussed for preventative measure in the future scenarios like considered in potential 9/11 similarly situated threats thereafter. The preventative measure is so much so a reasonably questionable consideration of mutual uncooperativeness of police with regard to black lives (in this specific matter, of black celebrity and just black victims in general) that one year later in the southwestern region of the United States (L.A.) the same incident happened to Biggie Smalls with uncanny familiarity of methodology and no conclusive apprehension.

    Coincidence??? Hell No! Not likely. We don't dislike police because they are bad guys necessarily, but more so because they have no real incentive to pursue justice for black folk. That is not their fault or their problem; that is a lack of power on the part of black people. Ironically, one of the myriad of battles good or bad that Tupac was fighting to represent was that black power is the very thing that failed here. Clearly, having the power to bring this murder case to a close after all these years is not even within the defeated thinking of the black mindset. Which is why Vlad and his law enforcement guest have unduly received the harshest criticism and skepticism.

    It speaks volumes to our lack of power as black people in the U.S., and that is the intellectual argument for so much interest in this case after all these years. Yet, my concern is that the masses of our people don't even get the implication to this day. As i said earlier in a post: black people believing in a no-snitching policy speaks volumes to unconsciously serving as compensation for that lack of black power to get justice.

    HE DIDNT LIKE CORRUPT COPS! STOP SPREADING LIES VLAD! When asked he said he respect anybody that does their job right, especially a police because they are authority, they got power."Trynna dirty up my name but I'm still here" – Tupac Shakur.

    Police are civil servants. They must say that they serve everyone as a part of their code of ethics. Of course he is going to say that he remained objective even though Tupac hated the police. Any police who understands the code of ethics knows what to say.

    Solving the case means that the Police and loads of others involved would all be in trouble and seem a mess to public eye – No one would trust them. Police are an organised biggest gang. Vatican Rules the world.
