San Diego police are looking into a cell phone video that shows some officers pretending to climb a border wall prototype in Otay Mesa after President Trump's visit there Tuesday.
The three police officers were caught on the video appearing to joke as they pretended to climb one of the samples of a border wall that Trump inspected during his visit. The police officers were there as part of the security for the president's visit.
The video shows one officer taking a video himself of another officer appearing to help a third officer climb the 30 foot high wall. The woman who posted the video says the police officers need to be disciplined for what she calls their disgusting behavior. San Diego Police have not confirmed the officers are from the department.

I was at the border wall ‘prototypes’ today after 45’s visit. This is the shit I peeped over the wall... On a day so full of protest and pain this is what the San Diego Police Department was doing. These are the officers that are on the streets terrorizing communities of color. Seeing this was nothing new but it was a reminder to broaden how we talk about immigration policy, especially in California. So much attention is focused on 45 without acknowledging the long standing structural issues that affect immigrants in this state. California likes to distance itself as a “sanctuary state” in standing against Trump’s policies but these men were officers before 45’s inauguration and will continue to be officers after a new bobble-head takes office. California’s ‘liberal’ policy also needs to be consistently CHECKED!
