Tensions between communities of color and police are undoubtedly high, but when an Oakland, California, neighborhood kid asked officers if they'd be interested in playing basketball, the cops obliged.

FOX's Gary Baumgarten reports: 

Two Oakland housing authority cops were passing the 15-year-old's grandmother's house, so he and his buddy invited them to the backyard for a little game of two-on-two.

The cops said yes, the boys way outscoring them at hoops:

(Duplessis) "I'm not surprised at all that the officers went in the back and played with the kids. I'm also not surprised after the result of the play that the officers lost to the kids."

That's Oakland housing police chief Carel Duplessis. Someone, of course, video taped the shootout, posted it, and it's now going viral.
