VIDEO: D.C. Officer Challenges Teen to Dance Off

On Monday, a Metropolitan D.C. police officer wanted a group to disperse on K Street SW when another teenager — identified by the Washington Post as 17-year-old Aaliyah Taylor — walked up playing “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” on her phone.

Then, Taylor said, the officer “laughed and said she had far better dance moves than that,” according to reports. The officer and teenager made it a dance-off.

According to Taylor, the officer told the group that if Taylor won, she could stay. If the officer won, the group had to leave, WTOP TV reports.

“I never expected cops to be that cool,” Taylor told the Post. “There are some good cops.”

I LOVE it! Kudos to that LEO. His maneuver made a lasting impression. Creativity is often needed. I taught at Howard U and at NVCC. When a student's final grade was just ONE point away from the next higher grade, if it was a male, I challenged him to arm wrestle. If he was "weak" I allowed him to win. If I won, I would announce that I suspected that he allowed me to win and then gave him the higher grade. And then with a wry smile said, "skipping class is not wise; none of this would occur with skipping. Females had to answer the following question: "Who is the most important person in the world, you or your boyfriend?" Correct answer: look in the mirror.
