Man Disrupts The Baltimore Violence With The Power Of Michael Jackson + Dancing

Dancer turns "Beat It" into a moving statement in the midst of the Freddie Gray controversy.

The rioting in Baltimore was serious enough to throw the city into a state of emergency last night. But amidst all of the violence and destruction, one man tried to bring peace through the power of music and dance.

This footage taken by NBC reporter Shomari Stone shows a brave (and talented!) individual named Dimitri Reeves breaking it down to Michael Jackson’s Thriller classic, “Beat It,” while sirens flash all around him. It’s a fitting choice of song, considering the video features the King Of Pop attempting to break up a fight through lyrical logic and killer dance moves.
