A hacker in Dunedin, New Zealand took over a radio frequency used by local police to broadcast N.W.A’s “F*ck Tha Police” on repeat. The Otago Daily Times reports that police were forced to listen to the song over and over again.
The Independent also reports that Rage Against The Machine’s cover version of the iconic song was played over the broadcast. The prank has been going on for a few days.
“It was putting people in danger,” inspector Kevin Lloyd tells The Otago Daily Times. “There’s no question that if it carries on and if they do what they’re doing it will delay a response. Any interference with a police radio constitutes a risk to public safety, and anyone caught doing this can face a penalty of criminal nuisance and up to one-year imprisonment.”
