New York /Ohio I remember!

Not the New York that I remember from my youth, this is the Ohio that I remember!

This is your country?

The country I wasted six (6) years of my life protecting?
This however, is not the New York that I remember from my youth!

At least a baker’s dozen of my elders (Chiefs and Clan Mother Teachers), came from my neighboring state.

This is your president’s country the one that is full of hate!


Man sucker-punched in street; people walking by go through his pockets

New York City police say a man was lying unconscious in the street after being punched when other people came by and stole from him.

Surveillance video aired by WCBS shows the victim being approached by two men in a Bronx intersection on June 18.

One of the men hit him, knocking him down.

After the two men left, several others started going through the victim’s pockets, stealing his phone and other items.

Police say the man who threw the punch then returned and took pictures of the motionless victim.

The punching victim was taken to a hospital in critical condition with a fractured skull.

Police called on Ohio boy mowing grass; now his business is booming

Jun 29, 2018

An Ohio boy is running his own business this summer cutting lawns and cleaning up yards.

Reginald Fields, 12, is the owner of Mr. Reggie's Lawn Cutting Service. With several helping hands from his cousins, brothers and sisters, they are up with the sun every day working the neighborhood.

That's what they were doing when someone called police on them.

"They said I was cutting their grass. I didn't know it," Reggie told News 5 Cleveland.

His customer, Lucille Holt, said she was confused when she saw police, but quickly learned the neighbors called to complain that the group cut a section of their property (about a foot where the two properties join together) and were in their yard.

"They said the kids cut their grass," Holt explained.

Reggie Fields said the police said nothing to him and the other kids. He finished the job and felt a little discouraged.

"I was like, that's a shame. I didn't know," Reggie said.

But that didn't last long.

Lucille Holt created a Face book post about what happened and ended up with thousands of views and hundreds of shares.

"I guess I have a line where part of it is now my yard. They called the police to tell the police that the kids were cutting their grass," Holt said in the video.

Now, Mr. Reggie is getting a lot of support for his new business from people who see the video and want to make sure he's never discouraged again.

"People are in boxing me like, 'how can I get in touch with these children? Where are they at? I got property I want these kids to cut,'" Holt said.

Reggie, his siblings and his cousins are getting calls from all over the city now.

Reggie said he's trying to save the money he earns to buy new equipment and grow his business.

"Just give me a call. I will be there. On time!" he said.

As for the neighbors who called police, they called News 5 to say they saw the Face book video, but didn't want to go on camera.
