While police in riot gear clashed with protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, officers in another part of the state were participating in some impromptu community building.

On Sunday, J. Krebs, a patrol officer with the Kansas City Police Department, challenged some children in East Kansas City to a dance-off.

"We went up to handle a call, and I had been dancing in the car all day long," Krebs explained. "We were leaving, and these kids started busting a move as we were driving by them. I turn the car around and my partner was like, ‘If you have a dance-off with him, I’ll give you some Jolly Ranchers.'"

Krebs did. And lost.

A video of the dance-off taken by a resident was posted to the Kansas City Police Department's Facebook page on Monday, two days after police in Ferguson shot and killed an unarmed black teenager, sparking protests.
