NYPD Clears Officer Caught on Video ‘Twerking’ in Street With Homosexual Man at ‘Gay Pride’ Parade

NYPD OfficerNEW YORK — An on-duty NYPD officer who was captured on video last year grinding and twerking in the steeet with a participant in a “gay pride” parade has been cleared by the New York Police Department of violating any department guidelines.

As previously reported, the viral video was recorded last June as over 20,000 people marched in the city’s annual parade, which stretched two miles from midtown to Greenwich Village. It captured a uniformed officer letting loose to the Michael Jackson song “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough,” and bumping his rear-end into the private area of the “gay pride” marcher.

During the short video clip, the officer’s back was turned to the homosexual man dancing behind him as his holstered gun and handcuffs shook from his hips. The marcher, who has now been identified as Aaron Santis, then planted a pride sticker on the smiling officer and kissed him on the cheek.

“I didn’t expect him to get into it as much as he did,” Santis told reporters. “The crowd just loved it and I think it made him want to dance more.”

Paige Ponzeka, a member of the LGBT sports group Big Apple Softball League who recorded the incident, told BuzzFeed News that Santis approached the officer and began “grinding up against him” as he had been seeking an officer to “dance” with him throughout the event.

“The cop was standing there all stoic,” Ponzeka recalled. “As soon as Aaron started dancing with him, grinding up against him, the cop tried to stay still but then he just got super into it.”

The officer, who was dubbed the “dirty dancing cop” by various outlets has been identified as 111 Precinct Officer Michael Hance. The 17-year police force veteran and heterosexual father of two had been assigned to the parade that day.

His Facebook cover is a prayer that he would walk close to God as a police officer.

“When I start my tour of duty, God, wherever crime may be, as I walk the darkened streets alone, let me be close to Thee,” it reads in part.

An integrity control officer, who only desired to be identified as Sergeant Michelle of the 111th precinct, told Christian News Network that Hance was not found “to be in violation of any department guidelines” following an investigation into filed complaints.

“He viewed it as community relations,” she said. “According to police guidelines, he didn’t violate anything.”

Sergeant Michelle explained that Internal Affairs first conducted a preliminary investigation but passed on handling the matter, forwarding it to her and someone she identified as Lieutenant McKay for review. Commanding Officer Captain McBride signed off on the report clearing Hance of departmental violations.

“Whether or not we think it was professional or unprofessional doesn’t matter,” she said. “We have to go by the department guidelines and the academy and our training.”

Sergeant Michelle said she didn’t find the video to be sexually suggestive, but asserted that Hance was “just dancing.”

“He didn’t look like he was dancing any differently than I see other people dancing,” she stated.

    “He didn’t look like he was dancing any differently than I see other people dancing,” she stated.

    Really? He has a homosexual grinding up against his rear end while wearing his uniform on duty, this is not appropriate at all and as a uniformed officer who is suppose to be doing a job he has time to do this showing he is in support of the homosexual agenda. If a Christian who works for the city or state took time off their duty to attend this godless parade even on their lunch hour to preach against this display they would be fired. More of the double standard and evil on display.

    • Brian_Joness

      That’s how people dance nowadays. Sounds like you just don’t like gay people. That animus doesn’t translate into punishing a police officer for being a good sport at a parade.

      • Josey

        I hate what God hates and this is an abomination, the actions gays do. God can and does save homosexuals all the time and they become new creations in Christ when they repent of this sin, the old man is dead and the new man is risen when one repents of whatever sinful lifestyle they are in and btw there are no gay christians, you are either dead to the old man and alive to Christ and become a follower of Christ as your Lord and Savior, you cannot serve two masters. Jesus is coming soon and He will judge all unrighteousness, repent, follow Christ and find new life, for the door is closing fast.

        • Michael Hampton

          I understand that you believe that. Some people don’t. See? Just like Catholics believe that the bread actually turns into the flesh of Jesus and protestants believe that it’s just bread meant to represent the flesh of Jesus. You believe one thing, other people believe another. That’s what makes our country great! You can believe one thing, and I can believe another!

          • afchief

            And what we Christians believe is what God believes. Homosexuality IS sin.

          • Tom Johnson

            Don ‘t drag this Christian into your ugly perversion of Christianity.

            My Christ celebrates all people, except the money changers in the temple. Please show me where Jesus says anything about homosexuality? Oh that’s right, he doesn’t.

            My Christ teaches me that all sins are equally vulgar in God’s view. Why then do you obsess on homosexuality (which is doubtful is actually a sin, but for you we’ll assume it is)? Both Paul and Peter list a lot of “sins” (women speaking in church for example) that you hypocritical false Christians choose to ignore to obsess over male sex acts. And let’s not even get into the old testament sins – eating shrimp and wearing clothes of mixed fabrics? You SINNER!

            I pray for you to actually read your Bible, think about what it really says, and stop listening to these evil, satan-inspired, preachers perverting my beautiful religion. They are to Christianity what Isis is to Islam. Find Christ my friend, or burn in hell for eternity.

            The Bible contains 9 specific references to homosexuality: 4 in the Old Testament (Genesis 19:1-25; Judges 19:22-30; Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13) and 5 in the New Testament (Romans 1:24-28; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; 1 Timothy 1:8-11; 2 Peter 2:6-10; Jude 1:7). The passage in Romans, in particular is so clear that it seems to have been written by St. Paul in anticipation that people might challenge the idea that homosexual behavior is wrong (in case you don’t get it, let me make it perfectly clear!). In addition, there are numerous other passages that touch on this topic indirectly through comments on the biblical view of marriage and family, promiscuity, and sexual purity. Included in these references are Genesis 2:18-25; Proverbs 18:22; Mark 7:21; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5; Romans 6:13; Romans 13:13; 1 Corinthians 6:13; 1 Corinthians 6:18-19; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:3; Colossians 3:5; Revelation 21:8; Revelation 22:15.

            Homosexual behavior is always discussed in the Bible as a serious sin. It is usually not singled out, but listed among other particularly heinous sins as examples of how depraved one can become. It is discussed in the context of idolatry. Idolatry is a most serious offense against God, and its seriousness helps explain why homosexual behavior was a capital offense in the Old Testament. Historical Christian interpretation has consistently viewed homosexual behavior as sinful. The modern word sodomy even comes from the biblical account of Sodom and Gomorrah.

          • Josey

            For one reason it’s the topic of the article, get over yourself. If the topic was abortion that’s what ppl would be talking about.

          • Michael Hampton

            Nope. I told you before, the word “homosexual” didn’t exist. In 1946 it was added to the Bible to replace the ancient aramaic word that basically stood for child rape. We are all against child rape. But your leaders wanted to turn against gay people, so they changed the word. You’re upset over something that doesn’t affect you. Why not spend all of this time that you spend hating gay people and screaming how much you hate them with your family? Why not read to your children?

Historical Christian interpretation has consistently viewed homosexual behavior as sinful. The modern word sodomy even comes from the biblical account of Sodom and Gomorrah.

            It should be pointed out that what the Bible condemns is not personality traits such as feminine feelings on the part of a man (or masculine feelings on the part of a woman). However, Jesus taught that sin runs deep. He said, “I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:28; compare Mark 7:15-23). But notice the statement in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11: “such were some of you.” This seems a clear indication that homosexuals can change. While our basest instincts of many sorts are difficult to control, we are not like animals in the forest; we can overcome our temptations to become blameless in God’s sight (Philippians 2:15; Colossians 1:22; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8; 1 Timothy 3:1-13, 5:7, 6:14; Titus 1:6; 1 John 3:4-10).

            There are those who take some of the passages of Scripture above and attempt to show that they do not really mean to condemn homosexuality. But these arguments fall short, and upon investigation become an obvious ploy to distort the plain meaning of Scripture. As applies to other doctrines of the Bible, one must avoid trying to interpret Scripture in light of one’s proclivities, and instead, interpret one’s proclivities in light of Scripture. The Bible is its own grid. It is wrong to overlay your own grid on the Bible. For a more detailed look at this, see Biblical Interpretation.

          • Josey

            That’s why I follow the Bible, there is no confusion there for God is not the author of confusion. Most catholics are told not to read the bible and they like mormons, jehovah witnesses, scientology, etc. have other books they read. I stick to God’s Holy word only.

  • Nick River

    Gay Pride marches are, these days, carnival celebrations. There is little if any civil disorder, and getting into the spirit of the celebration was entirely appropriate for the officer. Great for community relations too so good to see that he was cleared.

    • Michael Hampton

      Agreed. The one here in Chicago is a family affair with well over a million participants every year.

      • JustNTyme

        Gays don’t have families.
        A child is produced a man and a woman. There is no such thing as a “gay family.” No such thing as “two dads” or “two mommies.” Every child on earth has a mother and father.

        • Michael Hampton

          Your ignorance is astounding. How do you survive on a daily basis without any firm grasp on reality? Who keeps you from lighting yourself on fire or falling into any open manhole?

            Sperm + egg –

            Is reprobate better or worse than masterbate?

          • Luke Sulla

            It’s easy. All we do all day is waddle from our computer keyboard to the fridge and the toilet.

    • afchief

      They are disgusting!!!

    • Josey

      I suppose eating the excrement is great too which they proudly display in some of the parades.

      • Nick River

        What a bizarre, untrue, and frankly fatuous thing for you to write, Josey. Proverbs 13:5 “A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame”.

  • SSGT_Randolph

    I can’t help but wonder what kind of lowlife would complain about a Christian police officer simply dancing in a parade/street celebration.

    • LetMyPplGo

      There are people in the comments complaining if you want to look. Although I would hate for them to be considered representative of Christianity.

    • Josey

      who said he was a christian officer? This is not the fruit of a Christian period!

      • Jolanda Tiellemans

        Didn”t you read the article? He prays to your God every day before he goes to work.

        • Josey

          He’s not praying to my God and the Lord Jesus Christ for no Christian would join in such a thing nor let a homosexual grind up against him this way, period!

          • SSGT_Randolph

            There must be very few “true” Christians, then. And there is no requirement anywhere that a Christian must be a hateful bigot.

          • Luke Sulla

            So, was it his god or your god who took out Scalia?

          • Josey

            be quiet troll!

    A nice guy with a sense of humor. We need more cops like that.

    • Josey

      uh, no we don’t! If I were his wife if it’s true he has one, I would be ashamed of this.

      • Tom Johnson

        If I were your wife, I’d be ashamed of you – it’s all relative.

          I wouldn’t have a wife since I am one and heterosexual as God ordained, happy being a lady. 🙂

  • FoJC_Forever

    Completely unprofessional, not to mention plain sick. The demons that ruled Sodom and Gomorrah are gaining more and more momentum and control in America. Watch your children closely and keep them safe. Just like the passive Muslims shield the aggressive ones, so the passive homosexuals shield the aggressive ones. Shame and fear will drive many who have been violated into silence.

    Follow Jesus, find Wisdom.

    • LetMyPplGo

      I always wondered what kind of person would complain about someone else innocently dancing. Now I know.

      Btw, it’s obviously hypocritical when you say “Shame and fear will drive many” while you’re the one trying to shame others and make them fear for their children. I’m not surprised though considering all the propaganda you’re trying to spread. Please keep it up though; the world needs plenty of obvious examples of how not to behave. And you’re doing that well.

      • Josey

        If you call grinding one’s genitals up against another mans backside an innocent gesture, you are reprobate in your thinking!

        • Michael Hampton

          Perhaps you should equate yourself with a film called “Dirty Dancing” from the 80’s. It was just made into a Broadway Musical. The movie is only rated PG-13.

            oh were there homosexuals grinding a penis up against the rear end of a cop in that movie? Must have missed that part.

          And you are masterbate in yours. Even Steven.

      • FoJC_Forever

        Your high minded sarcasm will melt away when you stand before God in Judgement. I truly feel sorry for people like you. Your arrogance and ignorance have completely blinded you to Reality. Hopefully one day you will see the complete foolishness of your beliefs and ideals, then turn to Jesus for Salvation. But, I can’t make you. God won’t make. He only offers you the opportunity to forsake your ways and your self so that you can inherit Eternal Life.

        • Luke Sulla

          You are correct. God was too busy taking out Scalia this Presidents Day weekend.

    There is NOTHING normal or moral about this lifestyle.

      You seem all worked up over this. What other homosexual photos are you looking at?

      You might need some introspection. It’s 2016, no one spews that anymore.

      • Jolanda Tiellemans

        It seems they more into this then those who support homosexuals. I don’t even go looking for pictures like that. Are they even on the net? Maybe porno sites.

      • afchief

        Check out most homo parades. Very disgusting behavior!!!

    • Josey

      yep, they do even more disgusting things there than grinding up against one another, some of the nasty things they do in public at these pride parades which not to long ago would have been considered lewd behavior and they would have been arrested on the spot, not to mention the eating of excrement that goes on in rebellion and in public as a slap in the faces of those who live righteous lives. They deserve the sickness they get from doing such things.

        Mardis Gras has turned into almost a homosexual parade. I live 4 hours from New Orleans and I know people that go there and will go no more because the homosexuals have taken over.

        We KNOW this has to happen. Jesus said it would. We are very close to His return.

        Luke 17:28-30 (NASB) It was the same as happened in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building; 29 but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 It will be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed.

        • Luke Sulla

          Is that four hours by horse & buggy?

    • Michael Hampton

      Why aren’t you also upset at police officers at Mardis Gras? I’ve seen them involved in much worse than this. And yet THIS upsets you. Both are immoral and lewd. But you only mention one. A simple search pulled up hundreds of examples of male officers dancing in the same manner with women.

      • afchief

        Really? Prove it!!! Homosexuals are liars!!! I’ll say it again, homosexuality is perverted. It is deviant. It is extremely dangerous. It is sin. It is death.

            Do the Homosexuals and the Left believe they can change hearts and minds through the force of law? That we will allow them to indoctrinate us?

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            And do Christians like you believe that homosexuals really care what you think? To them and those who support them, me being one of them, you and people like you are just narrow

      You are thinking of the Folsom Street Fair which is for the BDSB and leather subcultures. The San Francisco Pride is a parade held over on Market Street. This year, 2016, will be the 46th year for the parade and festival. I believe grandstand seats are still available last year’s attendance was 1.7 million.

      • afchief

        I saw pictures of it on Free Republic a few years back. The most disgusting scenes I have ever seen. Open sex on the streets of San Francisco.

        • Tom Johnson

          It’s no different that the broadcasts of the 700 club and those other hateful, false Christian preachers. Open hate on parade over the airwaves. It’s disgusting and a clear perversion of Christianity. It sickens and saddens me. I know, this only celebrates one extreme and sad subculture pretending to be Christian, but still, it’s ugly. I fear for my children if they’re exposed to such ugliness.

          • afchief

            All it takes is a reasonable and logical mind to know the homosexual lifestyle is dangerous to one’s health. Let me tell you what is being covered up by your homo friendly websites, all the media and our government. The only way two people having sex can catch or create it who don’t have aids already are by 2 males having anal intercourse. It is caused by the intermingling of male sperm, blood, and male feces. If you are a male and have ever had sex even just once in your life with another male you are disqualified as a blood donor. The reason is simple. Some people have aids but test negative and some test positive with no symptoms. You could be spreading the disease and not know it. The virus mutates against the medicines as fast as they are created, just like the common cold. More and more drug resistant viruses are popping up every day. I wonder why. The CDC reported 19000 drug resistant HIV related deaths in addition to the 15000 HIV deaths in a single year in this country alone. The CDC also reported that the last known cure for gonorrhea is no longer effective and the highest rate of incidence is among males in the western part of our country. These facts are covered up and lied about and soon it will probably be illegal to quote them. This cover up should be criminal. Much worse than what these same people crucified the tobacco companies for covering up the dangers of smoking.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            It is covered up? Riiiiight. It’s all over the internet, but it’s covered up? And homosexuals can
            donate blood again. You really should keep up with the latest news.

        • Michael Hampton

          How many times did you look at those pictures? Did you pleasure yourself? You can admit it now, since it is obvious that you are consumed with hot male on male action. It’s all you every talk about.

    “Hey, all you kids in the audience – see the way we’re moving? Doesn’t this look like great fun? Do this and you can infect lots of people with AIDS – people whose names you never even knew – it will stay with them the rest of their lives! Don’t feel bad about that – all that matters is, do whatever feels good to you! That’s all that matters in life!”

    • Jolanda Tiellemans

      Wait? You can infect people with aids by dancing with them? Wow, I learn something new every day.

    • Michael Hampton

      You should research the ways that HIV and AIDS are transmitted. You must have a lot of nail biting waits for results from your doctor.

      • Max

        Decent people who have morals do not get AIDS. We marry and commit to each other and don’t have to get tested for fatal STDs on a weekly basis. AIDS is a punishment for people who live degenerate, loveless lives.

        • Michael Hampton

          So Ryan White, the little boy who got HIV through a blood transfusion was immoral? He was 8. You are a disgusting waste of breath.

      • afchief

        Why do homosexual men get AIDS at a much higher rate than the heterosexual population in North America? Three main reasons: 1) a level of promiscuity in the majority of gay men 70% that boggles the ordinary mind, with up to hundreds of partners a year. This is sex as addiction, and less than 5% of heteros e.g. Magic Johnson get anything approaching these numbers. 2) the back door is not designed for sex. Its lining is thin and friable and easily damaged, allowing the HIV virus access to the bloodstream. 3) high associated drug use making for sloppy unprotected sex.

        You want to stop AIDS? Stop having back door sex. It is that simple!!!!

        • Michael Hampton

          You have copied and pasted that same statement several times. Your fantasies will never come true. I don’t date jerks.

  • Becky

    These homosexual parades celebrate the increased risk of contracting and spreading HIV…it’s a Pro-HIV Parade. They don’t care that homosexuality is an abomination against God. Obviously, they don’t care if they infect each other with HIV/STDs either.

    • Jolanda Tiellemans

      *facepalm* Seriously?

    • Tom Johnson

      Actually, it’s things like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade that increases the chances of those heterosexual pedophiles (over 97% are hetero, so we know all heteros harbor that evil) chasing and capturing our precious children. That parade lures children for those hetero pedophiles to capture them while they’re not looking. It should be banned, and hetero’s should be carefully monitored at all times. They are clearly an abomination against God, and Becky you need to ensure that those evil heteros don’t infect our children.

  • Jolanda Tiellemans

    Reading all comments below from those protesting because the officer danced with a gay guy, I wonder if they would have react in the same matter if the officer had danced with a hetero woman.

    • Kangaroo52

      Don’t read things that upset you.

Here we have a person of authority reaching out to another community of which he is not a member to unify and strengthen our nation.
