Police Officers Suspended Over Offensive Video

PALMER PARK, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County police have suspended two officers who allegedly created a video depicting racially stereotypical actions and posted it on the Internet.

Chief Mark Magaw said at a news conference Friday evening that a duty status hearing for the two officers will be conducted next week.

Police say the video depicts a traffic stop and includes two black officials in uniform who use crude stereotypes and profanity. The two are shown interacting with a black driver, who appears to be an actor.
