The white couple who called 911 on a 12-year old black boy for mistakenly mowing part of their lawn 11 days ago called police on the same boy once again on the Fourth of July.
While most racist white people who get publicly shamed for calling the police pretend to be sorry and issue teary eyed apologies asking for forgiveness after the fact, one family is doubling down on their overzealous antics and shows no signs of remorse or backing down.
According to MIC, the white Maple Heights, Ohio, couple, who called 911 on 12-year- old Reggie Fields, who is Black, for mistakenly mowing part of their lawn, has now called authorities on the same boy once again.
Apparently their brand of racism doesn’t believe in taking off for the holiday because this happened on the Fourth of July.
Lucille Holt-Colden, the Black woman who initially hired Fields to mow her lawn on June 23rd invited him and several other children in the area to an Independence Day party and barbecue at her home.
Holt-Colden, her family and guests were all eating in her front and back yards last Wednesday when two police cruisers unexpectedly pulled up. They soon found out that her white neighbors, Randy and Linda Krakora, had once again called the police to Holt-Colden’s home just two weeks after their first call made national headlines.
“We have always been told by the police that if we feel threatened, ‘Don’t confront these people, just call us,’” Linda Krakora said during a recent phone interview.
“We’re a slightly older couple. We have a white couple in their 80s next to us. If we feel it’s going to be more of an issue to go over trying to talk to somebody, for our safety, we just call the police.”
We’re not entirely sure what is so menacing about people eating food on private property (#ChewingWhileBlack?) but according to Maple Heights Police Lt. Joe Mocsiran, several members of the Krakora household, including Linda, her husband Randy, their son, daughter-in-law and two grandkids, have all called 9-1-1 approximately 60 times in the 18 years that they have all lived at their current address.
This time the authorities were contacted because Holt-Colden’s kids and other children in attendance, including Reggie, allegedly bumped into the Krakoras’ fence while playing with a Slip ’N Slide.
“Somebody, anybody, better do something about this,” an exasperated Holt-Colden said in the Facebook video she shot of the incident.
“Police [are] being called because the kids are playing in water. Maple Heights Police, you ain’t got nothing else better to do, do you?! Mayor, what you gon’ do?! Maple Heights chief of police, what you gon’ do?!”
No arrests or citations were made because for once common sense prevailed.
How much am I supposed to take?
