Rosenberg Cops Singing on YouTube? Now That's Police Work
Rosenberg cops, out doing their jobs and making viral videos.
Rosenberg might be considered one of the most boring places in Texas, but its police department sure knows how to make a name on these here Internets.
While it's not the first time we hear about a video that shows cops doing something other than smacking people around, it is the first time we've seen a patrol doing a rendition of a Katy Perry song.
The Roseberg Police Department Facebook page got more than 100,000 shares on the video. They even brushed off any criticism about the use of taxpayer dollars to record two cops goofing off with their vehicle dash cam.
"This is community policing at its best. Gain the cooperation of your citizens and they better learn how to "police WITH us."
There you go -- management was behind it. Facebook hits equal better law enforcement, we guess.
We'll admit we lip-sync Katy Perry songs all the time -- when no one is looking -- so kudos to the bravery of these cops. We're sure they're not busy cracking a lot of high-profile cases, so good deal with making kids feel Johnny Law is approachable and all that.
Oh, and just a note: The title of the video "Hip Hop Cops," or referring to hip-hop police, just makes us think of that police spying program from some years ago. So, maybe change the name.
