"An online video shows some men who appear to be uniformed NYPD officers enjoying the festivities at the West Indian Day Parade. But some are criticizing what the men were doing, especially since some shootings took place during the parade."



I`ve seen the video and there`s no doubt that the culprits are real police officers. Cops are supposed to serve and protect the community, not make themselves a spectacle in front of the community.

If these clowns dirty dance in front of the public, God only knows what they do, while on duty, when nobody is watching.

A police officer should always be alert and cautious, especially in a crime-ridden city like New York City. It`s difficult to be alert and aware of your surroundings when you are dirty dancing with a gorgeous scantily-clad young lady. There could have been a riot going own a few yards away, and these cops wouldn`t have noticed.

I don`t mind cops having a good time, but not on the taxpayers` dime.
