R. Kelly has a song saying he doesn't see anything wrong with a little bump 'n grind, but can NYPD officers say the same thing? Talk about arresting images. New York City police officers surrendering to scantily clad dancing girls? Laughter gave way to wide eyes, and gaping mouths. The video was shot at last week's West Indian Day Parade, known as New York's most raucous parade. Nine people got shot at this year's parade. But the only shooting where these officers were posted was the shooting of the video that's now gone viral. "Stop and frisky" read the New York Post headlines. Forget force, the Village Voice called it "excessive use of dance". Though actually only a couple of officers did much dirty dancing on duty. Think of it as "community outreach". "If I do that at work I think I'd be fired," said one viewer of the video. But New York's police commissioner wasn't firing anyone. "You know I prefer it didn't happen, but I don't want to make too much of it," said Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. Commissioner Kelly told WOR Radio that the young women approached the police officers, and he noted that "it's quite an unusual parade". "You know, you're going to get caught up in the spirit of it," he said. Even the commissioner has gotten caught up in the spirit of it, enough to play the bongos. But New York cops aren't the only ones to get lured into dancing to the beat while they're on their beat. One British policeman at the Notting Hill Carnival got a Facebook fan page dedicated to the dancing policeman. And we're always seeing soldiers in Iraq letting off steam. One retired police reserve sergeant says the New York officers were just being part of the neighborhood. At least the New York cops didn't take their hats off.

Can we focus on REAL issues. Like cops committing murders, excessive force, drug dealing, etc.
