VIDEO: Armed 'Rapper' Gets Arrested For Threatening Chicago Cop On Livestream

Aspiring rapper Tavon Baylock threatened to shoot a police officer near him in traffic on a Facebook Live video.

Chicago, IL – An aspiring rapper has been arrested for threatening to murder a uniformed Chicago police officer in a viral Facebook Live video (video below).

Tavon Baylock, 20, streamed the live video on the social media platform on Jan. 23, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

“We’re gonna kill him,” Baylock laughs in the video, as he and two other vehicle occupants pulled up alongside a marked Chicago Police Department (CPD) patrol vehicle.

“You better mind your mother--kin' business, b---h,” he said in the video. “I’m gonna kill you.”

He panned the camera between the two semiautomatic handguns in his lap and the unsuspecting officer driving the police SUV.

Another individual armed with a handgun equipped with a 50-round magazine and a laser sight sat in the backseat of the suspect’s car, Cook County prosecutors said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

“My gun’s on my lap. He’s gonna get his a-- hurt!” Baylock said in the video.

The patrol vehicle momentarily fell behind them at a traffic light, at which point Baylock raised the camera above him to show the officer pulling up next to them yet again.

“Keep comin.’ I got some s--t that hurts,” he said.

The marked patrol vehicle then proceeded past them, and drove off ahead.

“He runnin’! Chase that n----r, he runnin’!” Baylock declared. “Kill him! Catch him!”

“Hey look! We got guns and s--t,” he said later in the video, pointing the weapons at the camera. “Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop!”

The suspect vehicle trailed after the marked police unit for several more blocks before the video ended.

“F--k the police,” Baylock said. “Imma shoot this b---h in public. F--k… Y’all seen the police runnin’ from us. Y’all know who really runnin’ Chicago.”

According to prosecutors, much of the video was recorded in the 9500-block of South Halsted Street, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The officer seen in the video identified himself after he was shown the footage, and Baylock was ultimately arrested on a felony count of threatening a public official.

But Baylock's attorney, Michael Saken, denied that his client ever threatened the uniformed officer.

“Besides the fact that there is language used that most would consider to be bad, there were no threats,” Saken argued in court.

The defense attorney also noted that police had not recovered any weapons in connection with the incident.

Judge David Navarro denied Saken’s request to release Baylock on his own recognizance, and set his bail at $10,000.

According to prosecutors, the aspiring rapper was charged with unlawful use of a weapon on two occasions in 2015. He was a juvenile at the time.

The day a officer does run from that boy he needs to get a new job which we all know that officer wasn't running if he knew they had guns he would have give them a bad day and they wouldn't have had to wait to be arrested another day

Listening to that mush mouth POS brought back memories I had tried to forget. I wonder why so many people have little regard for young black males with tattoos on their faces?

Okay, let’s try to talk like a human. “Ooh, ah, ooh, ugh, ah, ooh”. I’m sure this POS won’t be around long. Somebody “ gonna cap his ass” just like the rest of these aspiring rappers. Should just refer to them as aspiring dead men.

Didn't believe it at first, but these punks are living out what they do in the video games. Don't know right from wrong, or real and on a damn tv screen. As a little kid I learned what a gun did killing birds with my BB gun on the farm. Barn cats ate goon off of my dead barn swallows. But I learned lessons that have lasted my whole life.

Umm, your client videoed and posted his threat to kill a cop. Pretty sure that’s all the court is going to need to convict his ass.

No. 26-33

“Besides the fact that there is language used that most would consider to be bad, there were no threats,” Saken argued in court.

So he doesn't consider this to be a threat?

“You better mind your mother--kin' business, b---h,” he said in the video. “I’m gonna kill you.”

Where did this attorney go to law school? Maybe English is different in Chicago, but in most of the US, saying you are going to kill someone is a threat

So - if we directed the exact same verbiage and actions toward the "rapper" is would NOT be considered as a "threat" or "hate speech!"

Yea - right!!

The alphabet "fake" news and the "fake" print news media would have it deemed just that and be broadcast as just that in all of their media outlets in just seconds of it being discovered.

Disgusting double standard!!!!!

Couldn't watch the entire video - I felt my IQ points dropping too much. But if those guys were so big and bad why didn't they hold up their guns and point it at the officer instead of hide them in their laps and talk shit?

If people like this keep being allowed to reproduce society is doomed.
