NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles®) – Police officers, for the most part, are rewarded or promoted for going beyond the “call of duty.” But not this officer with the New York Police Department (NYPD). He got fired.
The still unnamed officer went beyond his call of duty on Sunday by dancing with a gay man during the Pride Festival. The cop showed some serious moves to the delight of hundreds of spectators.
This morning, as the officer reported for duty, he received his pink slip from his supervisor. The letter stated: ” NYPD appreciates your going beyond the call of duty, but you can’t do it while you’re on duty — especially in your police uniform.”
Upon hearing the news, several New York gay bars reached out to the officer, offering him a job as security guard or bouncer.
The Adobo Chronicles® could not independently confirm the police officer’s sexual orientation.
