Viral video: Police called on 12-year-old mowing grass which ends up getting him more business
A boy in Mayfield Heights is running his own business this summer cutting lawns and cleaning up years.
Again. It happened again. White neighbors call the police on 12 year old Black boy who was mowing yards. Someone said it before, but white people use 911 like it's customer service. And they know damn well the risks are grave. This was Cleveland.
There is something really wrong with some of y’all. He accidentally cut some of your grass? Which benefits you? And... you call the police?
The neighbors called the cops on 12-year-old Reginald Fields because he accidentally cut part of their lawn. How is that a crime? The police did nothing to the kid, but why did they even bother to show up? There are systemic problems here to be addressed.
Hi, I'm Nick!
America—land of the free and home of the brave (except for little black boys earning money mowing lawns). Why do white people use 911 so often and so flippantly? I propose we heavily fine anyone who uses 911 this way. We must end this.

They called the cops on a 12 year old boy. He was mowing the lawn and they were upset that he...accidentally cut some of theirs. This was Cleveland. He is the same age as Tamir Rice was. Please stop calling the police on Black children just living.
