Police in New Zealand forced to listen to N.W.A. anthem 'Fuck Tha Police' on loop

Safe to say someone has gotten their attention...

Police officers in Dunedin, New Zealand have been getting quite the earful after an illegal broadcast on their frequency forced them to listen to N.W.A. classic 'Fuck Tha Police' on repeat.

At least two versions of the 1988 hit have been picked up on police radios over the past few days, while the identity of the culprit remains unknown.

Local newspaper, the Otago Daily Times reports that radios have also picked up a song by Rage Against the Machine.

Inspector Kelvin Lloyd confirmed to the paper that no police radios are missing, and warned of the danger posed to the public and to officers attempting to carry out their work.

"There's no question that if it carries on and if they do what they're doing it will delay a response," he said.

"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.''

'Fuck Tha Police' is hailed as an iconic protest anthem, tackling the issues of police brutality and racial profiling.

This isn't the first instance of such unique interference, following reports in August of pig grunts and abuse being broadcast over police radios on New Zealand's North Island.
