Tension in the U.S has grown thick in the past few days as America deals with problems concerning police brutality in urban communities.
Just days after the Derek Chauvin verdict in the George Floyd case, a group of teen boys was stopped by police for doing a Tik Tok video outside of a nearby Wawa.
In the video, the dancers are seen trying to finish their dance video while a police officer chases them down and takes their speaker.
The group of teen boys, better known as CNL, are known for creating viral videos of themselves dancing around public landmarks.
They are most known for creating the Tik Tok challenge centering around Natasha Bedingfield’s hit song, Unwritten.
Luckily, none of the teens in the video were arrested or hit with any charges.
However, such police brutality and harassment continue to raise concerns in an already troubled America where racism continues to oppress urban communities.

Don’t know many details yet, but the pattern of black men being killed by police in traffic stops while white men are taken into custody alive after mass shootings is so striking. It’s not coincidence. #brooklyncenter— Dimitri Drekonja (@Ddrekonja) April 12, 2021

It's fucking crazy how ANY gathering to protest police brutality and racism is declared an unlawful assembly but storming the Capitol, Nazi and anti mask rallies are cool #brooklyncenter— ꓘПӨ53ᄂF 🏴☠️ (@NO53LF) April 12, 2021

White Boulder shooter kills 10, including a cop, gets taken alive.— LLORT_OT_NROBER (@LlortOt) April 12, 2021
Black dude gets pulled over, didn't kill anyone, gets murdered by cops.
But yeah, there's no problem with systemic racism in this country.#brooklyncenter #TwinCities #BlackLivesMatter
