Brandi Armstrong said she and her husband were out in their yard when the Air-1 helicopter flew over them earlier this week . Unbeknownst to the officers inside the chopper, their loudspeakers were on and Armstrong, her husband, and everyone else in the area could hear everything they were talking about.
“Can you give me a blowjob?” one of the officers asked the other.
To which the second officer replied, “You have too much body hair.”
“My jaw hit the ground!” Armstrong told her local news station, adding that her husband was also “shocked” and “surprised.”
“He just looked at me and started laughing and said, ‘Did you hear that, honey? Did you really hear that?'”
Jacob Serebrin was walking with a friend in the area. They also heard the voices coming from up above.
“We look up and there it is passing over and the two men in the helicopter were having a conversation, and we could hear part of it,” Serebin said. “Some swears and some references to money.”
“Everyone does have private conversations in the workplace,” he added. “But you know, there’s certain things that are inappropriate for any workplace.”
Armstrong feels the officers should be disciplined for the incident.
“A police officer, they hold a very important job,” she said. “Tons of people look up to them. Children look up to them. I mean, you’re setting a bad example for children. It’s almost saying it’s OK to speak like this.”
Winnipeg Police Services released the following statement over the matter:
As a result, the flight crew’s conversation was publicly broadcast [and] some content of the conversation was inappropriate. The involved members were not able to hear the public address system from within the aircraft. They became aware their conversation had been broadcast and immediately turned the system off.
The department added that the incident is “under review.”
