At least two Chicago police officers have been stripped of their police powers after a videotape surfaced.

The video was first broadcast on WBEZ-FM's website. It shows officers standing by as a crowd appears to taunt a young man sitting in a squad car.

The department is not saying how many officers are under investigation, but two uniformed officers are seen in the video.

A police department statement says conduct displayed on the tape does not represent core values of the department.

An internal investigation continues as of Wednesday night.
