Officers seen on video dancing at West Indian Day Parade

BROOKLYN - A group of NYPD officers were apparently caught on tape dancing provocatively during last week's West Indian Day Parade.

Reaction to the video was mixed along Eastern Parkway, as some people defended the officers while others found their actions in poor taste.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he is aware of the incident.

"Probably a little bit of poor judgment. I think where the [NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly] comes around is to say we'll admonish them to be a little more careful and diplomatic and whatever the right word is, you fill it in. But get back to work," says the mayor.
