Vybz Kartel music could get these two cops fired from the force.
A video clip of two Jamaican cops went viral over the past couple of days. The short clip shows a male police officer with a female cop riding shotgun while listening to Stylo G’s “Touch Down (Remix)” featuring Nicki Minaj and Vybz Kartel. The camera was rolling when Kartel’s verse was on, and the female cops spit all the lewd lyrics on cue.
The communications armed of the police force has confirmed that the video has since made its way to the high command who have since launched an investigation to determine whether or not the two officers broke any law or breached any department policy.
Some viewers have been voicing their concerns on whether or not the video is appropriate and how law enforcement officials should conduct themselves while on the job. “Nothing about this is funny, and all of you who are laughing are supporting this slackness from our police officers. Like seriously is this how our tax dollars are being spent?” one female commented.
A civilian may have also been in the squad car while the officers were filming and listening to the music. Vybz Kartel is currently serving life in prison for murder, which also makes him public enemy when it comes to the police force.
Kartel’s attorney argued during the 2014 trial and his appeal trial last summer that police officers tampered with evidence used to convict him. The dancehall star is now awaiting the verdict in the appeal.
Sources told Urban Islandz that the two officers in question could face disciplinary actions over the video posted on social media. The Jamaica Constabulary Force has specific policies geared towards what cops can and cannot post on their social media accounts whether on or off duty.
