12-Year-Old Black Boy Simply Mowing Someone’s Lawn Gets The Cops Called On Him

Twelve-year-old Reggie Fields is a Cleveland area native. Once summer break began, Reggie found himself with a lot of free time on his hands.

So like any budding entrepreneur, he seized the opportunity to start a lawn-mowing business called “Mr. Reggie’s Lawn Cutting Service”.  Reggie employs his siblings and cousins to help him out. 

On Friday, Reggie was cutting Lucille Holt’s lawn when suddenly the local Maple Heights Police showed up.

Apparently, a patch of Holt’s grass actually belongs to her neighbor. And that neighbor called the police saying that Reggie’s mowing had ruined their lawn.

Ms. Holt was furious at her neighbor’s actions and recorded the incident on Facebook Live. 

Check it out.

People online are also furious and sick to death of incidents like this.

The latest incident of police being called on Black folks just existing even drew attention overseas.

But once the story went viral, the community rallied behind Reggie to show their support of his entrepreneurial efforts.

Reggie even got kudos from “The official Twitter account of Ohio’s Superintendent of Public Instruction, Paolo DeMaria.”

Congratulations to Mr. Fields for persevering and rising above the ignorance and hatred!
