Ashy Or Classy?!? - NYC Cops Get Their Grind On.

World Star Hip Hop, depending on whom you ask, is either simply a reflection of modern society or the devil's internet playground. No need to lie, I often stop by myself to watch IHOP fights, ghetto music videos, and random rap battles. It's just entertainment, but it's certainly not a site I hope to find myself on anytime soon, for any reason. A handful of New York City cops are probably thinking the same thing right now.
The NYPD is reviewing a new Internet video that appears to show city cops in uniform provocatively grinding scantily clad women at the West Indian Day Parade. Several women participated in the parade-route debauchery and sought out uniformed officers for the dirty dancing.

Two men in uniform who appear to be NYPD cops looked embarrassed and practically stood still when they were approached by women who bent over and shoved their rear-ends into the cops' groins.

But two other apparent NYPD officers were all too willing to get frisky. They can be seen on the video aggressively play-thrusting their pelvises up against the backsides of at least two women, gyrating to the beat.

Everyone in the video - including at least four cops in uniform and scores of revelers - is laughing and having a good time. But NYPD bosses don't think the video is very funny. A police investigative unit in Brooklyn has been ordered to look into the video and the cops who are seen dancing on it, sources said.

"It's not corruption," said a source familiar with the investigation. "But it looks bad. It's young cops doing something stupid."

The video was first posted at
Like I said, the day I end up on is the day I know I've officially failed my parents. Seriously. That place is debaucherous.

As for the video of the cops, well, judge for yourselves. Be forewarned, if you don't like suggestive dancing or lousy Caribbean music, you might wanna sit this one out.

Okay, let's be honest here, that sh*t is pretty unprofessional. One of the cops looks like he's enjoying it waaaay too much, and should probably go check his shorts. Cops are paid to protect and serve. If you're too busy windin' to notice that guy at the 2:14 mark clearly steal a purse, then you should find another profession.[1]

On the flipside, given the perpetual tension between policemen and communities of color, taking yourself a bit less seriously could probably be seen as a good thing. The citizens probably get the sense that this cop's not such a bad guy, and might, by proxy, trust him a bit more when the need arises. So I suppose there's that.

What do you think?

Question: Ashy Or Classy?!? Should these cops be reprimanded for bumpin' and grindin' on the clock, or is this merely good, wholesome family fun?

[1] Ok, that didn't really happen. But it woulda been funny/ironic if it did, no?
