It seems that we are encountering more and more badass cops recently, and this Stafford Country deputy is no exception.
Beyoncé released the music video for her hit song “Formation” in December of 2016 and later gave a politically-charged performance of at the Super Bowl, protests from people who felt she was attacking police officers by symbolizing federal neglect of black communities followed.
But police officer Deuntay Diggs certainly doesn’t care about any of this, as he recently aced the exact choreography to Formation at a pep rally in North Stafford High School in VA.
Diggs claims that he’s the first openly gay deputy to serve at the Sheriff’s Office in Stafford Country on his personal site.
His performance of the Queen Bey hit came from his desire to let the students know that they should be free to express themselves, and change the conversation when it comes to police work.
“The reason I’m doing this is to show kids that they can make it, that they can survive, that they can be successful,” he said. “I’ve been very fortunate, at this time when people look negatively upon law enforcement, that I’m able to change that narrative and open up some conversations and engage with people.”
Diggs actually learned the choreography two months ago for a lip-syncing contest to benefit children, citing that he’s a “huge Beyoncé fan,” but brought it out again for the pep rally last week.
