A policeman in Falmouth, England organised a Gangnam Style charity video that raised £10,000 (around S$19,000) in four days for a boy with a brain tumour, but this has resulted in him being suspended from his post.According to an article on Digital Spy, Neighbourhood Sergeant Gary Watts faces allegations of gross misconduct and misconduct in public office.He has been temporarily removed from his post pending an inquiry by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.The video was produced by Watts and other off-duty Falmouth officers in January, raising money for a 12-year-old who was left with severe disabilities following an operation on a brain tumour."By showing the human side of police officers, we can gain the trust and respect of the majority of the public. Yes, there will always be those that will moan, but they are definitely in the minority," said Watt
