Footage of several NYPD officers grinding up on dancers that was allegedly shot from this year’s contentious West Indian Day Parade has made its way onto the internet and we think it’s a good thing.

Considering all violence that took place that weekend and the tension surrounding the arrest of a City Councilman, this is the best piece of PR that benefits the police and parade organizers.

Sure, it might not have been the smartest move for cops to start daggering women while on duty in uniform, but this is a high energy parade and they got caught up in the moment for the greater good. At least these guys weren’t drunk and unlike their East Village counterparts, had consent.
