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.

    This will do wonders for any custody suit he may have been considering. Oops.

      i don’t think she’s innocent in all this. there’s no way i’m going to believe that she wasn’t aware of what he’s teaching their children. i’m sure his attorney will want to have a look into her computer as well. these parents are exactly the reason why racism will never end. those children are being abused by the way. children are not born racist or bigots they are raised that way as we see here. they will grow up miserable just like him. and probably her as well. also, i’m wondering if the divorce is because of this. if so, i would think it’s out of embarrassment. but, that’s just me.

    i don’t understand. why wasn’t he fired instead of the stupid common suspension? “officers” have been fired on the spot for racist facebook post and what’s the delay here? surely this is even just as, if not disturbing to the point where he can’t seriously be trusted to work for the all the people he’s hired to “protect” without bias. this is bullshit.

    Some people are asking why not an immediate firing… their union contract has built in protections from immediate firings for all but the most obvious/guilty participation in a felony.
