article imageVideo: NYPD officers caught dirty dancing at parade

New York - The NYPD is feeling the heat after a video surfaced on the Internet showing a few officers dirty dancing with scantily-clad participants at the West Indian Day parade, which is known for its uninhibited dancers, festive music, and wild, colorful costumes.
A couple New York City Police officers who were working the parade route quickly turned from observers to participants at the event held in Brooklyn. The annual festival celebrates the Caribbean culture and its history. The policemen were videotaped getting down and dirty with dancers who passed by, including participating in 'daggering' moves, or simulating sex acts with the women.
The officers can be seen gyrating to the beat of the island music, when at least two of the men took it to another level. When approached by women who thrust their backsides into the pelvis area of the uniformed cops, the officers were eager to oblige with some hot and heavy grinding, leaving little to the imagination.
The homemade video, which was posted on World Star Hip Hop , has received mixed reactions from viewers, with some saying "leave the police alone, they were only having fun," and others saying "the officer's were behaving unprofessionally and should be reprimanded."
At least two of the NYPD officers appear to be a little embarrassed by the situation, while four seem to be willingly participating in the dirty dancing incident as the crowd watches, laughs, cheers them on, and exchanges high-fives with the men in blue.
NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly responded to ABC News, saying "he wishes the officers hadn't done some provocative dancing with women at the parade, but he didn't want to make too much of it." Kelly said "it wasn't unusual for police assigned to patrol the parade to get caught up in its rowdy spirit."
NYC Councilman Peter Vallone, Jr. has criticized the officers and told MyFoxNY, "their behaviour violated the conduct expected from police officers" and called it a "dereliction of duty." Varrone added, "they could have placed people in danger."
MyFoxNY reported, "while these officers were having fun gunfire broke out along other portions of the parade route and at least two shootings took place along the route during the parade." One of the shootings resulted in a fatality.
The NYPD said it is investigating the incident but would not release the names of the officers involved.
