WV Police Officer Filmed Videos Of Young Daughter Dressed As A Cop, Marching To KKK Anthem
A West Virginia police lieutenant is on paid administrative leave while under investigation for making racially insensitive video recordings which feature his daughter dressed in a police uniform while dancing to a Ku Klux Klan anthem.
[su_center_ad]Lt. Shawn Williams, of the Charleston Police Department, was placed on leave last week pending an investigation by the Police Department’s professional standards division, The Charleston Gazette reports.
Police obtained video recordings taken from Williams’ computer, which prompted an investigation.
According to two sources who have seen the recordings, the videos feature Williams’ young daughter dressed in what appear to be articles of a police uniform and dancing to an anthem of the Ku Klux Klan, while the father can be heard using derogatory racial slurs in the background while asking the girl questions.
In the song the words can be heard repeating , “Stand up and be counted, show the world that you’re a man. Stand up and be counted, go with the Ku Klux Klan.”
On Monday, Williams said he could not comment on the allegations, according to the paper.
“My wife and I are in the middle of a difficult and painful divorce,” he said. “Neither of us can or should disclose or comment on deeply personal matters involving our children, who are my first concern. These matters involve a sealed court proceeding.”
Charleston Police Chief Brent Webster also said he could not talk about the investigation due to it involving personnel issues.
