Clarence Williams was the victim of a burglary at his home in Washington DC three weeks ago as he was outof the country. Police were called to the scene after the intruder trigged the alarm system. The burglar was caught red-handed on Williams’ home surveillance system, but he was not the only one caught by it. While checking back on the footage, Williams was stunned to discover two policemen speculating over his sexuality. Observing the fashionable brands, the officer says: “Macbook, Mac Pro. [Clothing from] Armani, Dolce and Gabbana… he’s probably gay.”His colleague laughed at the remark. One of the police officers was also caught on camera dancing in the middle of the crime scene. The victim said it made him feel appalled, disgusted and frantic as people turned trouble in his life into a joke. It was only hours later that Mr Williams’ neighbours called the police back after noticing that the back door to the property had been smashed. A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Department told NBC that the two officers have not been suspended, but have been placed on “non-contact status” for misconduct.
