Police officers have to play so many roles: They're crime-stoppers, enforcers of the law, first responders, and peace-keepers. So they need a lot of tricks and tools to do ALL their jobs well.
That's why this Washington, D.C., police officer is getting so much attention. Responding to reports of a fight between two groups of teenagers, the cop told the teens to leave the area after she and her colleagues broke up the altercation. One high-schooler started playing "Watch Me Whip (Nae-Nae)" on her phone and danced up to the cop. Instead of getting annoyed, the police officer told the 17-year-old that she had better moves than that.
So they held a dance-off. If the girl won, the teenagers could stay. If the police officer won, they'd have to leave.
The teenager quit first, the two hugged, and the kids dispersed. "Instead of us fighting, she tried to turn it around and make it something fun,” the teenager told the Washington Post. “I never expected cops to be that cool. There are some good cops.”
As for the officer, she prefers to remain anonymous. “It’s kind of embarrassing that this became so big,” she told the D.C. newspaper. “This is what we do every day.”
You can watch their good-natured contest. You got to admit, they both are awesome dancers!
