A burglary victim in Washington D.C. was shocked to find that his home security camera captured footage of city police officers dancing in his apartment and speculating about his sexuality after the crime.
NBC Washington reported on Clarence Williams, a D.C. resident who had his townhouse robbed for the second time in the past month. While Williams’ cameras got footage of the suspect, they also recorded police officers who were in the home later.
One of the police officers remarked that the victim was “probably gay.” Another police officer could be seen dancing in the home.
“We’ve got police out here, dancing in my home and acting as if this is a joke and this is serious. This is my life,” Williams told NBC.
Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser also commented on the incident, saying, “I don’t approve of the language that was used or the conduct of our officers.”
A police spokesperson said the two officers prominently seen in the footage have been placed on non-contact status for misconduct, and an internal investigation is underway.
