WATCH: Kids Confront Philly Cops As They Terrorize Innocent Black Student At Bus Stop

A group of children called out Philadelphia police officers who said that they wanted the kids to be "shaking" from the confrontation.

Video posted on social media over the weekend shows a white officer telling a shirtless African-American boy to get in his police cruiser.

The video was posted by Twitter by a user named Asia who claimed to be a student waiting for her bus.

Instagram is helping this get out, but it needs more attraction. This Happened in Philadelphia,Pa on Thursday. A group of school kids and I were waiting for the bus at the bus stop when a cop car came to us, slowed down and stared at us then kept going down the street. pic..com/OrvOvWf3Oh

"Start walking," the officer says as one of the students explains they are at the bus stop.

"Something is obviously going on out here," the cop insists.

"Ah, y'all so cute," one of the student says.

"He didn't do nothing," one student shouts at the officer.

"He just rolled up on him," another student notes.

"This Happened in Philadelphia,Pa on Thursday. A group of school kids and I were waiting for the bus at the bus stop when a cop car came to us," Asia wrote on Twitter.

Asia said that the officer eventually released the boy without explaining why he had been detained.

“Don’t forget to tell your friends you were shaking in a police car," the officer allegedly told the boy.

In total, four white officers surrounded the group of students.

The Philadelphia Police Department responded to the tweets by asking Asia to open a formal complaint.

Video of the incident had nearly 300,000 views by Sunday afternoon.

...again with us. The officer finally lets the boy out then proceeded to mess with him. He yells “Don’t forget to tell your friends you were shaking in a police car” and when the video clipped off he also yelled “You’re still shaking, are you ok?” And laughs. I posted this......

.... 2 days ago on Instagram (_a.s.i.a____) twice because the officer still did not tell us why he grabbed the boy. Our school is down the street from the bus stop. I personally was with the young boy the entire walk to the bus stop and I’m saying this to tell you he did not

Do anything. I was with him the ENTIRE time, then the cop pulls up on us. Now out of the 800 people that has watched both videos and most have tagged @PhillyPolice we still have received a response from them. I am 16 and quick to pull out a camera when the police came around.

THAT’S SAD. It’s also disturbing how he tried to dismiss the remaining of us , laughed and shook his head while he failed. @PhillyPolice I honestly want to here the body camera’s audio for this day AND you owe the young gentlemen an apology for harassment. pic..com/GtBD5ewQn7
