CHICAGO, ILLINOIS: The Chicago Police Department is investigating after a video went viral over the weekend showing three women twerking on top of a police car.  

In the footage, the three women were seen dancing in a suggestive manner on top of a police patrol car as it is driven slowly through a crowd of people. One of the women who were twerking was poised on the ceiling of the car while the other two were twerking on the hood of the vehicle, while on all four. It is still uncertain if the person behind the wheel was a police officer. The footage has been viewed almost a million times and circulated across social media. It has also garnered 3,600 likes and over 1000 retweets.

The date or exact place of the incident was unknown although the car is adorned with writing on the side, which reads “Chicago Police” and a bunch of people in the crowd are seen wearing Chicago Bulls jerseys. "Looks like the Chicago Police Department's emphasis on 'positive community interactions' is taking off! Great to see!" the caption reads along with the footage.



 

"The Chicago Police Department is aware of a video that surfaced on social media showing several females riding on a marked squad car," said Deputy Director of Chicago Police Tom Ahern who said an investigation into the video is 'currently ongoing'.

'What’s the problem?'

Most of the people who commented underneath the video noted that they did not really see a problem with the incident. "Nobody’s shooting and everyone looks like they’re having a good time. What’s the problem?" one of them said while another commented, "I really can’t find anything wrong with this video this is community bonding lol OK they had a good time no one was hurt there was no shooting it was all love." A third quipped, "I honestly don’t see anything wrong with this."

Alluding to growing voices and campaigns against police brutality in the country, there were also people who pointed out the surrealism of the incident. "This is literally like watching footage that exists on a different planet from the one I live on," one of them said, while another remarked, "This reminds me of what a 90s dystopian movie would have looked like for 2021."

A couple of users simply poked fun at the footage. "I hope they gave that car a good clean afterwards," a commenter tweeted, while the next chimed in with, "Booking a flight to Chicago now." One more noted, "I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this is gonna be a wild summer."



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 

Lately, there have been multiple instances like these across the country. For example, in Seattle, a woman was seen twerking on top of a police car in front of a jeering crowd after a wild beach party in the city descended into chaos. Another instance was in St Louis, where police people jumped on top of a police car that had responded to the scene of a party to break it up. Since then the authorities have been been on the hunt for suspects who participated in the mob.
