BCPR BPD Twitter

BPD The police department released a video last week, set to the tune of Pharrell's "Happy," in which dozens of cops rejoice over the fact that the @BaltimorePolice Twitter handle reached 50,000 followers. Amid a year with over 100 homicides, about a dozen police-involved shootings, and a laundry list of despicable cop behavior--including slitting a dog's throat and shooting a steer from a moving car near pedestrians--maybe they shouldn't be so happy. Leave the song parodies to the professionals (see City Paper's "Trigger Happy").
