In the disturbing clip, Barone stands up and explains why the four suspects were arrested saying they seemed suspicious of leaving and warns that things could become complicated if they resist their demands.

& # 39; If someone wants to fight or run, I'm a little happy trigger, boys. I am not going to lie. And they pay me a ton of money in overtime if I have to shoot someone, "he says with a shrug.

"At this point, all of you are being detained on suspicion of trespassing," he tells them.

Then he says he's going to download the group's information and look for weapons or drugs.

With a warning finger add "Do not do anything stupid."

After making the "happy trigger" comment, the group moved uncomfortably and some laughed nervously.

& # 39; Easy trigger? & # 39; one repeats.

"You say to shoot happy, that's why people fight …" adds another.

"Yes, that's creepy, really," says one.

"There are four of you, there is one of me," replies the policeman.

The video of his three-minute speech was posted on Facebook on Friday, where he accumulated 10,000 visits.

The Hartford Police Department placed Barone on administrative leave and an internal affairs investigation is underway.

The police union did not immediately respond to a telephone message on Friday.

Barone was also suspended after an investigation of car chasing in 2016, where another sergeant kicked a man while he was handcuffed. Later, Barone was promoted to sergeant despite the incident, according to the Hartford Courant.

Hartford Deputy Chief of Police Rafael Medina said police are investigating Barone's interaction with the group.

"Regardless of context or intent, those statements are totally unacceptable and represent a fundamental disregard for the behavior we expect and the standards we hold on to," Medina said in an e-mailed statement to community leaders in Hartford.

"We see it from the perspective of the person at the other end of the field interview, and hearing those words is not only scary, but it projects an image of law enforcement that uses force lightly. As I hope you know, we do not take the use of force lightly as a department, "he added.
