Emanuel Gonzalez Biography – Emanuel Gonzalez Wiki
Emanuel Gonzalez is the commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park. He is being investigated by the NYPD for allegedly threatening rapper 50 Cent — telling his officers at a roll call to “shoot him on sight.”
He allegedly made the threat on June 7, 2018, when the rapper was expected to attend an NYPD sanctioned boxing match in the Bronx.
According to a source with knowledge of the case, during a roll call inside the 72nd Precinct stationhouse, Gonzalez told his officers if they saw 50 Cent at the boxing match, known as a smoker, they should “shoot him on sight.”
Gonzalez tried to pass off the bizarre order as a joke. But the matter made its way to police headquarters, which launched a probe.
The alleged threat came at a time Gonzalez had an ongoing beef with the rapper. A month before the roll call, Gonzalez filed an aggravated harassment complaint, claiming 50 Cent threatened him on Instagram.
50 Cent was commenting on a lawsuit accusing Gonzalez of shaking down the owner of the Sunset Park club Love and Lust — when he wrote “Get the strap,” a slang term for “get a gun.”
In the complaint he filed in the department, Gonzalez said several of 50 Cent’s 18 million followers responded with their own threats against the precinct leader, including “F–k this commander” and “Blast this fool,” leaving him “in fear of his safety.”
The rapper ultimately took down the Instagram post. The department investigated Gonzalez’s complaint, but no charges were filed.
A rep for 50 Cent said the rapper had just heard about Gonzalez’s “shoot on sight” comment. The rep said: “Mr. Jackson takes this threat very seriously and is consulting with his legal counsel regarding his options going forward. He is concerned that he was not previously advised of this threat by the NYPD and even more concerned that Gonzalez continues to carry a badge and a gun.”
Emanuel Gonzalez and Love & Lust owner Imran
Gonzalez is being sued by Love & Lust owner Imran (Star) Jairam for demanding 11 “free” round-trip tickets to Puerto Rico and a generator for a doctor after Hurricane Maria devastated the island.
When Jairam denied Gonzalez’s request, the precinct hammered the club with violations. As a result, Love & Lust lost its liquor licence and shut down, the owner claimed in court papers.
