The band’s lead guitarist and vocalist Joey Keithley commented:
“I am outraged by the deaths of unarmed suspects at the hands of various police forces in the USA. Of course I realize that there are a lot of good cops that do a difficult job every day, but some of the recent killing sure looks like it’s rooted in racism. So I wrote this song about these injustices and the inevitable reaction that will likely follow from the folks in that neighborhood Police should be wearing body cams while on duty. Look at it this way if it weren’t for bystanders with cell phones, the public would be not seen what had happened and the truth could have been severely impeded.”
