Last week, the Justice Department released it’s review on the local police department in Ferguson, MO and found that the Ferguson Police Department engages in “a pattern of unconstitutional policing.” Today, in light of this report, Ferguson, MO, Police Chief Thomas Jackson announced he is stepping down from his position.

In response, EMA has now shared her cover of Sinead O’Connor’s emotive and highly political song “Black Boys on Mopeds.” According to the singer, she “meant to release it over the holidays but for multiple reasons it just didn’t happen.” She continued, “Now an investigative report by the DOJ has confirmed a history and pattern of racially-based discrimination and harassment amongst the law enforcement of Ferguson, MO.” O’Connor originally wrote the song in 1990 about police brutality in the UK but the message is undoubtedly fitting here.
