Baltimore Protester Breaks Into Michael Jackson Dance Routine: Watch Him Beat It!

by at .

There is nothing funny about the ongoing riots in Baltimore.

Over 200 people have been arrested; over 140 vehicles have been set on fire; and over 15 buildings have been burned to the ground as residents protest police treatment of Freddie Gray, a young man who died in custody this month.

The 25-year old suffered a spinal cord injury and passed away on April 19, with authorities admitting they mishandled Gray following his arrest (e.g. he was not buckled into the police van).

But while a country watches in horror and a city reacts in panic (and while Donald Trump calls out Barack Obama for not solving the crisis), at least one unnamed protester fulfilled a lifelong dream in the midst of all the chaos.

He made like Michael Jackson.

The video above features footage of this young man moving, grooving and dancing to "Beat It," impressing all with his impression of The King of Pop.

We wish he never had the opportunity to do so, but since he already has, it's worth a few seconds of your time to admire the man's moves.
