A teenager said he had a “satisfying” experience blasting “Fuck Tha Police” during the funeral of a murdered New York Police Department officer Tuesday.

Sixteen-year-old Julien Rodriguez played the NWA song out his apartment window because he claims police officers killed his older brother and best friend without cause, reports the New York Post.

“Since they did not show respect for my brother and my friend, why should I show respect to them?” Rodriguez said to the New York Post. The Post could not confirm that Rodriquez’s brother and friend were killed by officers.

Thousands of police officers were gathering to honor slain Officer Miosotis Familia, who was killed by Alexander Bonds while she sat in her squad car last week. Bonds was fatally shot by other NYPD officers and reportedly expressed anti-police sentiments in the past. Familia leaves behind three children. (RELATED: New York Cop Assassinated In ‘Unprovoked Attack’)

About 20 NYPD officers went up to Rodriquez’s apartment to ask him to turn off the music, police sources told the New York Post. He eventually turned off the song, only after the building supervisor threatened to kick his family out of the apartment, he said.
