Cop To NYC Street Vendor: 'Blow Me' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In a perfect demonstration of the NYPD's "Courtesy, Professionalism, and Respect," we give you this video, posted by The Street Vendor's Project, of a dancing cop telling a street vendor to "blow me."

According to the description on the YouTube page, this video was taken by a vendor legally operating a Mr. Softee truck near 34th Street in Manhattan this summer.

"This officer had confronted and been disrespectful to him on numerous prior occasions," the description reads. "This is the first time he captured it on video."

The cop in the video can be seen dancing before finishing off her performance with a courteous, respectful, and professional "blow me, b*tch."

Street vendors have been claiming for years that they're routinely harassed by cops.

The Street Vendor Project is a membership-based project with 1,500 active members who are devoted to aiding and supporting street vendors many of whom are immigrants, people of color, and U.S. military veterans.
