The Daily Grind Video

This year is not a good year for police…no, not at all.

In Austin, Texas, two police officers are currently under investigation after joking about rape in their cars, all while it was being recorded on video. The video, which was recorded last May, was uploaded on YouTube earlier this week and was confirmed by the Austin Police Department as authentic.

The audio in the nearly 2 minute clip isn’t all that clear but here is what the two officers said to each other :

Officer 1: Alright, we’re gonna be riding out for a week.

Officer 2: Yo, we used to. They used to do that.

Officer 2: Hey, put it this way; if we ride out for a week, crime is gonna be on the run and (expletive) non-existent. (Expletive) would get real for the bad guys. The world would be at peace for a week.

The officers then proceed to talk about ignoring crimes and rape:

Officer 1: Either that, or, you’d think that because we’d turn a blind eye towards everything.

Officer 2: Or that.

Officer 1: (Expletive) who cares.

Officer 2: Or that. It could be that.

Officer 1: I want to report a robbery! You probably deserved it.

Officer 1: Look at that girl over there.

Officer 2: (blows whistle) Go ahead and call the cops. They can’t unrape you. (laughter)

Officer 1: You didn’t turn your camera off, did you?

Officer 2: They can’t unrape you.

The footage quickly made its way to Austin’s NBC station KXAN. The police department responded with this statement:

Upon learning of the video’s contents, the Department immediately launched an internal investigation. The investigation will include a comprehensive audit of the involved officers’ contacts with victims of sexual assault to ensure the actions taken during the contacts meet the expectations of the Department, the public and most importantly, the victims. Upon conclusion of the investigation, the Department will take appropriate corrective action. APD extends a heartfelt apology to all victims of sexual assault. The comments made by the officers are contrary to the long-standing commitment of the Department to bring compassionate justice to sexual assault victims.
