Watch: Police spoof video angers Calif. officials

The video pokes fun at police harassment

By PoliceOne Staff

WEST COVINA, Calif. — A viral video spoofing police officers in West Covina, Calif., is being called an "asinine joke" by city officials according to KTLA.

The video makes light of police harassment by depicting five men dressed as police officers and driving two patrol cars with lights and sirens.

After pulling over an unsuspecting driver, they take out their guns and yell at him, "Where is the little girl?"

The confused man puts his hands in the air and says, "I don't know."

Then one of the officers steps closer to the driver, points at him and says, "There's the little girl." Then the officers drive away while shooting their guns in the air.

The video has received close to one million views on YouTube since it was posted in June.

Council members are considering filing a lawsuit against the video's producer and any city employee that was involved in the making of the video, according to reports.

The police department launched an internal investigation.
