He yells at 3 Ohio police officers who ended up playing soccer with a group of kids after someone called the police to complain that 5 black kids had the nerve to be … playing outside.
The incident unfolded, every day, on June 19 in Shaker Heights, Ohio … where the trio of officers who stayed to take some photos and play with the kids can be seen on video … instead of arrest them or send them home.
One of the children’s mothers Wendy BrownThe police reportedly told him, “I don’t know who would do it, but someone called the police for the children, they said they were playing on the street, so we passed.” Wendy said the police officer also told her, “We used to play on the street when we were kids.”
They obviously channeled their inner children to join in the fun. It was quite an impressive scene as one of the boys played QB and spiraled on the field as 2 policemen battled for the ball.
As Wendy told FOX8, “We encouraged them to go out and be kids, so they were just playing soccer on the street like they are at any other time.” She recorded the gathering game with the officers and the video is spreading like a forest fire.
It’s easy to see why: This is a great example of police officers connecting in significant ways with the community they control. More of this please.
