Videos of the police dancing with the Extinction Rebellion protesters has been going viral on social media.
Scotland Yard announced they would be investigating as this was unacceptable behaviour from officers. However, the police are human too and the climate damage that Extinction Rebellion are protesting against effects them just as much as the rest of us.
Videos of officers dancing to the Notting Hill Carnival have always been popular online. Seeing our police interact with citizens in a positive way especially during protests is a wonderful thing and only helps to reinforce that our police are people like us not robotic enforcers of the law, with no empathy or sense of fun.
We hope that Scotland Yard drops this particular investigation and our police keep up their good work but most of all keep dancing.
