SYRACUSE, Utah, Dec. 6, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — The Davis County Sheriff’s Office has shared a video of the Syracuse High School Dance Line performing a choreographed number that paid tribute to law enforcement officers.
“Huge thanks to the drill team for their hours of practice to ensure tonight’s #ThinBlueLine performance was perfect — it was!”
The recorded narration, played over low music, talked about the injuries and deaths officers shot in a Dallas sniper attack. The simulated sound of bullets was also played as dancers moved chaotically on the stage, a gym basketball floor.
Some viewers who responded to the Facebook post called the topic offensive or distasteful in a world where police brutality is frequently in the headlines. Several viewers thanked the group for what they considered a patriotic act recognizing heroes.
Still others focused on the dance moves, calling the performance “beautiful” and “awesome.”
