Incase anyone is aware, this song by KRS1 is anti police. The lyrics compare the police officers to slavery overseers. It also contains lyrics like "the police can have a little gun, so when I'm on the steers I walk around with a bigger one".

How can a sound be described as being 'cretinous'?

Now, if we were looking for an unkind description to apply to someone who is so stupid and poorly educated as to suggest that a sound was cretinous then perhaps we might just have a use for the word after all.

It seems unlikely that it was coming from the police unit.....on the off chance it was it really was fantastic and funny,, a PA system on the car and an officers iphone music on speaker maybe, but i doubt it was, but would be great if it was.

Oh yea, I am a massive fan of hip hop and not much of a police fan.

I just find the police men moronic for playing a tune that is anti them.
