Whether it’s his own idea, or some innovative new NYPD public relations campaign, the public is forming a new love for uniformed men. From his personal pics and messages on Instagram and Twitter, Pimentel defies the donut-eating stereotype of police. He is an inked competitive bodybuilder, a former triple-tour soldier, appears to be Iberian-to-the-core, and just might have a spread in an up-coming issue of Playgirl.We are however, a little disappointed. Though he has a beautiful tan, a stylish cut (hair, that is), and a chest that hardly any kevlar vest can accommodate, he is not a gay cops rep, and he just became engaged to his lovely girlfriend.We can certainly still fantasize. Miguel realizes that the women of New York and the blogosphere, are going completely nuts over him. He has to be aware that an equal number of gay men have also launched him to the tops of their hot lists. This means a treasured gay cops spot in their private-time mental Rolodexes as well. He’s obviously handsome, has a sexy job, and lives in a great place. What is it about him though, that makes the gay community want to commit felonies en’ masse?
Despite the fact he’s straight, he is a cultural enigma. Whatever assumptions about cops you cling to, his social media magic makes it seem as though a masculine god just decided to become a cop. According to his family, his fiance’, her family, and most of his selfies; he appears to be a genuinely sweet person.
Don’t stop the fantasy there. Let’s have some fun, and identify a few of his surface traits that would make him fit right in if he ever decided to “switch patrols.”
1. The hipster haircut and cropped beard would make any Andrew Christian model drool.
2. Miguel’s shoulders and arms barely fit their sleeves.
3. His legs and backside are a great argument for skinny-fit police uniforms.
4. When the dash cam is on, Miguel is always smiling ear-to-ear.
5. He knows how to use handcuffs…ahem.
6. He looks attractive in standard issue combat boots…double ahem.
7. The rainbow-colored honor medals on his chest are a truly distinguishing mark (check the photos).
Our advise to Officer Pimentel, is to continue his awesome civic work and never stop posting private pics. He is an ideal liaison between law enforcement and the hunk-hungry public.
