WATCH: Body Cam Footage Shows Kentucky Police Harassing a Gay Couple in Their Own Home

Newly released body cam footage from Kentucky police in Graves County — a county located near the state’s southwestern corner — shows several officers outside the home of Billy Hamilton and Patric Rodriguez, a married gay couple, near midnight on Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2016.

One officer calls Rodriguez a “shit apple redneck” and threatens to physically assault him, two officers threaten to sledgehammer down their front door, one unholsters his gun outside of their home, another threatens to shoot their dog and one of the officers slams Hamilton repeatedly against the wall after refusing to explain the reason for his arrest.

In the video, one officer refers to the men as a “doo dah.” Hamilton loudly protests his arrest. Both men were charged and released the following morning.
