    It’s a good song, but I think I would have written it differently. For one thing I probably would have mentioned the arrogant corrupt low-life scum-suckin’ piece-of-shit mother-fuckin’ murderin’ cops that shot her down. Also, I would have included a montage of various youtube clips of cops beating, tasering, shooting, and shouting at people, all converted to grainy black and white, with an occasional Wilhelm scream dropped in for effect.

    It’s probably just as well I decided to be an engineer rather than a song writer…

    Yeah, good song, but it never mentions she was killed by government agents. Isn’t that a huge part of the tragedy?
