VIDEO: Ind. Cop Demoted for Appearing In Hip-Hop Video

Gary (Ind.) Police Chief Wade Ingram demoted one of his patrolmen who appeared with his cruiser in a YouTube video with people flashing guns and gang signs.

Officer Jason Johnson appeared with his squad with lights activated in a "making of" clip from the filming of Freddie Gibbs' "BFK" hip-hop video.

Chief Ingram terminated the officer's take-home car privileges and transferred him to the garage, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

Natural selection at its finest. What a dumbass. Enjoy takin transit yo!

Natural selection Rick? I hope you are not an officer making that type of comment. However one part of your comment was correct in regards of his lack of judgment. Good job Chief Wade he is lucky that he is still a Police Officer.

I do not understand your comment. I don' care if Rick is a police officer, he is entitled to his opinion (whether we agree with it or not.)

Rick's comment appears to refer to the knucklehead's actions. You know, the one whom allowed the use of department equipment and his position as an officer (without permission of his superiors) to lend an air of legitimacy to a gang bangers video.

Rick's comment is no different than any of us would make about soemone (white/black/male/female) whom thought some idea or decision was great, but really wasn't. (Although Jackass movies may prove me wrong; who is more dumb, guys whom hurt themselves or guys who pay to see movies about guys whom hurt themselves?)

That's using some common sense. What a dumbass. What does he think now that he's gonna get some respect for being in the video. Yeah right! I guarantee you those so call rappers are laughing their asses off for what happend to this wannabe police officer. I hope it was worth it dummy. Way to use your head.

What a fool.....How the hell do we keep hiring these idiots in LE today. He is lucky to be still have a job even if it is in the motor pool. I know my dept. wanted to get rid of a Capt. once and they could not after months of trying. He was truly a POS, but he was reassigned to the city fueling pumps for the next several years until he retired. Never commanded anything but the fuel log sheets and some records.
