The song “Watch me (Whip/Nae Nae)" saved the day.
A police officer in Washington, D.C., approached two groups of teens in the middle of a confrontation on K Street SW, and asked the teens to leave. Aaliyah Taylor, one of the teens, responded by challenging the cop to a dance-off.
The officer proposed a deal: if Taylor won the dance-off, the teenagers would get to stay on the street. If the she won, the teens would have to go.
“No one was worried about the argument anymore,” Taylor said. “The neighborhood was getting crowded…the attention was on us. Everyone was just looking at us.”

That dance/off was really cool. It's nice to see a video of a cop doing something nice and being a part of the community. She set a great example of how to handle a situation without harsh words and actions.
Taylor, who had not seen the officer before Monday and doesn't know her name, said she still can't believe she danced with the police.
"There are good cops and bad cops, and I don't think all cops are bad, but I never thought I'd dance with a cop," she said. "I didn’t even know cops could be that fun."

That must be the dance she does after she shoots somebody
Normally it takes longer for the first jackass comment to appear in a thread like this. You may have set a new record.
Good post OP

She should be fired, just like anyone else that decides to have a dance off on the job.
Our tax money is paying for that BS?
You wanna have a dance off do it off the clock not while in uniform and getting paid. Thats not what she is paid to do!
Have a dance off in your own free time!

first video was absolutely inappropriate and I agree there should be some disciplinary action, although I do think termination is still a step too far. Many cops wont be terminated for cold blooded murder, so I think giving them the pink slip for dancing is a bit over zealous.
The second video seemed clearly orchestrated on his part, but is my favorite. That dude is shuffling party rock style man. He must be jamming LMFAO on his music device.
That third one was pretty cool and amusing too though. Did wonders with that whistle lol. I dunno if punishing the 2nd and 3rd is necessary. Perhaps we can attribute it to a public service? Increasing public morale?? But that British cop man I would totally jump in and challenge him to a dance off. He clearly enjoys the groooooove man.
