Two Cops on Admin Duty After Suspension for YouTube Video
PALMER PARK, Md. (AP) — The police powers of two Prince George’s County police officers remain suspended with pay for their alleged roles in a video that depicts racially stereotypical actions and was posted on the Internet.
Police officials say an administrative suspension hearing was held Wednesday, and both officers will remain assigned to administrative duties.
Chief Mark Magaw announced the suspensions last week after learning that the video was online.
Police say the video depicts a traffic stop and includes two black officials in uniform who use crude stereotypes and profanity. The two are shown interacting with a black driver, who appears to be an actor.
