NEW YORK — News outlets have been giving some attention to a video that surfaced Tuesday showing NYPD officers dancing with women at the West Indian Day parade.
In the video, a woman in costume approaches a uniformed officer, and the pair begin dancing provocatively. Additional officers are seen gyrating against other barely-clothed females. All appear to participate willingly.
Some are taking the clip seriously and questioning whether the officers should be disciplined for their behavior, but others see it as harmless - including witnesses.
“They were watching us and doing their jobs, in a fun way,” a paradegoer told NBC New York.
"I would prefer that it not have happened, but I don't want to make too much of it," Kelly said.
