This is awesome.
An Ohio woman says someone called the police on her children over the weekend simply because they were playing football in the street.
Officers responded to the scene, but instead of breaking up the game for no intended reason, they decided to join in and play. Wendy Brown said the children were “just playing” Saturday when police were called.
“We encourage them to go outside and just be kids, so they were just playing football out in the street like they do any other time,” Brown said. “I don’t know the cop’s name, but he came to me and said, ‘I don’t know who would do it, but someone called police on the kids, they said they were playing in the street so we came by.’ And he said, ‘We used to play in the street as kids.’”
She captured that scene on her phone:
“If we didn’t have the three gentlemen that came over to check on them, it could’ve gone way worse,” she said.
With racial tensions high, a false narrative could turn into something more deadly as we’ve seen time and time again.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
