Tampa Police Refuse to Work Beyoncé’s Sold Out Stadium Concert

When Beyonce chants “Who run the world?” the answer — according to the singer — is “girls,” obviously. Look around while she sings, though, and it'll tell you a different story. As concertgoers cheer on their favorite leftist pop star, few notice the law enforcement — boys AND girls, by the way — that are really in charge. They keep them all safe, and they are rarely thanked for their efforts.

Because of her recent Super Bowl performance, those police may not be coming back. As it stands at the moment, her concert in Tampa has no volunteer cops willing to attend.

A sign-up sheet for the April 29 event has been posted since tickets went on sale, but has so far remained blank — possibly in retaliation for the singer’s performance during the Super Bowl halftime which some police officers felt was anti-cop.

Typically for special events, off-duty officers sign up to pick up extra pay, but no one seems interested in working when the pop star hits town.

According to Tampa Police Department spokesperson Steve Hegarty, he’s not sure if the lack of willing officers is related to the controversial performance, and that the department would assign officers if none volunteer.

“We’re going to staff it because we have a responsibility to do that regardless of how controversial it might be, who the artist might be, or the politician might be,” Hegarty explained. “This is a couple of months away, so we’ve still got plenty of time to fill those slots.”

They better start filling those spots soon, as it may not be easy to convince to cops to protect the woman who triumphantly perched on top of a sinking cop car in her latest video.
