Updated:PITTSBURGH (AP) (AP)ong> - An 18-year-old Pittsburgh man has been arrested on charges he performed in and posted a violent rap video on YouTube that urges people to kill city police officers.
Online court records don't list an attorney for Jamal Knox, who was arrested Tuesday by a federal marshals' fugitive task force. Knox is charged along with 21-year-old Rashee Beasley who was arrested last month and was to have a preliminary hearing on charges related to the video on Wednesday. That hearing has been postponed until March.
The video, pulled from YouTube after police began investigating it in November, praises Richard Poplawski who killed three city officers in April 2009.
The lyrics include the line, "Let's kill these cops `cause they don't do us no good" and names specific officers who patrol the area where Poplawski lived.
