Gangsta-Rapping N.J. Cops Could Be Fired

June 03, 2013  | 

Four Irvington police officers who starred in a controversial music video that featured the town's police union president spouting what some have called racially insensitive and homophobic remarks are facing internal affairs charges and could be fired, officials said.

Officer Maurice Gattison — who went by the handle "Gat The Great" and called himself a "felon for life" while rapping in two separate videos — and three other officers were charged with conduct unbecoming a police officer, an infraction that could cost them their jobs, Irvington Police Director Joseph Santiago said.

A disciplinary proceeding is expected to be held later this month.

Chief is on suspension for 'serious misconduct' allowed these idiots to 'perform' at dept. Xmas party. Shirt says Hustle + Muscle = Success-he ought to read it b-4 he pulls it on his out of shape body. If female officers are repeatedly disciplined for 'racy' FB postings how is this different? They took an oath-apparently not a physical or an agility test- and then on top of it he's the union rep. and other cop is IAD. Unbelieveable! Hope to hear more on this one!!!
