Michigan Police Department’s Lip Sync Challenge Video Sheds Light on Opiod Crisis
The Lip Sync Challenge is the newest thing taking social media by storm. Police Departments across the country have been doing elaborate lip sync videos and some of them have been pretty impressive.
Michigan's Macomb County Sheriff's Department decided to go a slightly different route with their lip sync challenge video. They used their video, set to Demi Lovato's "Sorry" (a song about her own battles with addiction) to shed light on Michigan's opiod epidemic.
The video contains actual body camera footage of officers administering Narcan, which is a drug administered to overdose victims. All of the people seen in those videos have been saved by Narcan.
This video could be disturbing to some viewers. Viewer discretion is advised.
