Early this Wednesday (6/18/08) Rodstarz and G1 of the group REBEL DIAZ
were up in Bronx on Southern Blvd in Hunts Point, when they noticed the
police were harassing a street vendor who was selling fruit. The two
went over to witness the cops in action and when they saw the police
being abusive they pulled out a cell phone to video tape the incident
and asked for the officers badge numbers.  Subsequently they were
beaten, detained and taken to 41st Precint in the Bronx under the
direction of Captain McHugh.

Rodstarz and G1 will be going to criminal court Thursday (6/19/08) and
are being charged with obstruction of justice and assault.
