What is happening to the force that is meant to “Serve & Protect” the citizens of this country? Alexander Bok did nothing, but from the first moment the officer he was behind saw him the attitude shown was one of aggressiveness and arrogance, and for what? Even before the man said he was dancing the officer was using profanity toward him and his body language simply screamed “Just give me a reason!” What, did he not get any the night before and so he was cranky? Oh wait, perhaps it was because he thought Alexander Bok is gay, (considering his slender frame), and the officer’s homophobia kicked in… After hearing the name Ellen DeGeneres I’m sure that same homophobia went into hyper drive, and the officer thought he’d been singled out and was being called ‘gay’. As strange as it sounds, it wouldn’t surprise me a bit… Here’s the video, leave a comment and let me know what you think. Did the cop overreact? Did all the other cops that joined the first one overreact? And what about the final move by the officers?
This is the short version, it's just the incident. If you notice, the cop behind the wheel of the van is the one who (it appears) drew the cop in front's attention to what was happening; that's when they all begin to converge on Alexander, hurling insults at him.
This is the long version, it includes a lot of the other dances he did all day. It really is kinda funny!
What's happened to the cops that would have laughed when they heard what was happening and danced along with him? (Especially if they knew it might go on TV!) What happened to the days when we taught our children that the police were their friends and we didn't have to worry about the child running into the type of officer in this video? What's happened indeed.....
