Default 14-Year-Old Arrested in Saudi Arabia for Doing the Macarena

Quote:
BBC – A 14-year-old boy who went viral on Twitter for dancing the Macarena in a busy Saudi Arabian street has been arrested by authorities.

The teenager is being questioned after being accused of “improper public behaviour” in Jeddah, a statement said. …

In the 45-second clip the teen can be seen disrupting traffic while dancing to the popular 1990s hit song. The clip was believed to have been first posted in July 2016.

Because of the lack of codified penal law in Saudi Arabia, officials and judges have broad discretion in the arrest and punishment of children in the conservative country.

The incident was filmed on a busy street in Jeddah, in the west of the country.

The clip has divided social media, with some users defending the boy and even labelling him a "hero".

Others have suggested his behaviour was "immoral".

How can Trump allow this? This is unbelievable! This would never happen if Obama was still President. Trump is a joke.

Clearly he was doing it wrong. There is no woman beating and beheadings of an infidel anywhere in the video.

bc they're focusing on the human rights violators in our very own country: police. cops killing black people just to make their white supremacists friends and colleagues happy.

Cops are actually a lot more lenient with black people than they are with whites

The ones who get shot don't know how to obey the law and put themselves in dangerous situations

What further proof do we need that the region over there is so far behind the times. The Macarena just hit the Arab world.

right, like the bundy family in portland. they were armed in their first encounter with federal agents, not a bullet fired their way. it wasn't until later on that they escalated the situation once this family decided to get in a shootout. but if you're black, you're getting shot on sight.
