WATCH12-year-old boy mowing lawn gets business boost after complaint to police

A 12-year-old Ohio boy who operates his own lawn mowing business has gained more customers after one neighbor called the police one him for mowing part of her yard.

Maple Heights resident Lucille Holt had employed 12-year-old Reginald Fields, who owns Mr. Reggie’s Lawn Cutting Service, to mow her lawn on Saturday, she told ABC Cleveland affiliate WEWS.

Reginald’s cousins often help him work, and one of the neighbors called the police on them after the group of kids accidentally cut part of their grass, Holt said in a Facebook video she posted on Saturday.

“They called the police to tell the police that the kids was cutting their grass,” Holt said. “Who does that?”

The patch of grass the neighbors were apparently referring to sits between Holt’s home and theirs. There is no fence there to mark where the property begins and ends.

“I guess I have a line there, that’s not part of my yard,” Holt said.

The video showed a police car parked across the street from Holt’s home and two neighbors sweeping grass debris off their driveway. Holt said that, in the past, neighbors have called the police when her kids were throwing snow balls and another time when her son “was crying ’cause he was getting a whoppin’.”

Neighbors in Maple Heights, Ohio, called the police on Mr. Reggie’s Lawn Cutting Service because he cut their grass by mistake.

“You called the police cause the kids [are] out here cutting the grass, and they cut the grass that wasn’t part of our grass?” Holt said. “I don’t know what part is my grass and what part is your grass.”

She continued, “They should be glad these kids aren’t out there breaking their car windows out,” Holt said. “They should be glad the kids [aren’t] out here stealing their cars.”

Holt then asks one of the boys how old he is. When he responds that he is 9 and went to school with one of the neighbors, she praises him for being productive.

“I’m so glad [you’re] out here doing something positive, she said.

An officer then comes to talk to Holt, asking her if they can “go inside around the corner so you guys don’t have to look at each other while I talk to you.”

When Holt asks why, the officer says, “‘Cause I don’t want it to turn into anything. I’m trying to make it easy on everybody.”

The Maple Heights Police Department did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment. WEWS reached out to the neighbors, who said they saw the video but declined to comment further.

Holt ended the video saying she was “so angry right now that these babies [are] going through this — getting the police called on them ’cause they’re cutting grass.”

Reginald didn’t realize he was cutting the neighbor’s grass, he told WEWS.

“They said I was cutting their grass,” he said. “I didn’t know it!”

Ever since the incident, which has been viewed more than 150,000 times on Facebook as of Friday, Reginald has been getting more business calls than ever from all over the city, he said.

“People are inboxing me like, ‘How can I get in touch with this children? Where are they at? I got property I want these kids to cut,'” Holt said.

Reginald told the local station that he planned on saving the money he made to buy new equipment and grow his business.

Zuckerberg: “Well, uh….well, senator, there are some very strong Chinese Internet companies.”
Senator: “Right but, you’re supposed to answer ‘yes’ to this question. Okay, come on, I’m trying to help you, right? Gimme a break. You’re in front of a bunch of senators. The answer is ‘yes’!”

2 Chronicles 29:20
Calls to Leadership for revival
Yesterday I said I was going to share over the next couple of days some things that need to happen in the leadership of our churches if we want real revival. It is not my intent to say I know all there is to know about revival, but I want to see it. I’m not trying to impress you, I am to set in my ways for that. But what would happen if we as leaders did seek God for true revival? Anyway, I am just sharing with you what God is laying on my heart.

Renewed call to worship – 20

The first call was a call to purity, now we look at second call, a call to renewed worship.
1. After the priests and Levites purified themselves and clean the temple for service, Hezekiah called the leadership to a time of worship.
• Anytime there was a dullness of religion amongst God’s people, their worship was the first thing to fall by the wayside! You can attend church, and even preach and still not worship God.
• In every revival recorded in the scripture, a renewed call to real worship was major factor in bringing about change! It started with the leaders!
• How can we expect to lead others to worship God, If we are not worshipping???

2. Worship is more than just coming to sit in a room to hear a message, or preach a message, and sing a few hymns! Worship doesn’t come from the mind, it comes from the heart!
• Scriptural worship always involves sacrifice! In our case, the giving of ourselves totally to God!
• “Romans 12:1”I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” act of worship.
Let us check our heart!

Fake news, morphed pics get Pak Defense Forum’s Twitter, FB accounts suspended

Pakistan Defence Forum, which describes itself as “a one-stop resource for Pakistan defense, strategic affairs, security issues, world defense and military affairs” has been repeatedly accused of putting out anti-India propaganda.

The Twitter account and Facebook page of Pakistan Defence Forum, one of the longest-running forums devoted to Pakistan’s armed forces, were suspended on Saturday shortly after it posted fake news involving Kulbhushan Jadhav and a morphed image of a Delhi University activist.

Over the years, Pakistan Defence Forum, which describes itself as “a one-stop resource for Pakistan defense, strategic affairs, security issues, world defense and military affairs” and is better known by its website url of “defense.pk”, has been repeatedly accused of putting out anti-India propaganda.

Though retired and serving Pakistani military personnel are among the forum’s members, it is not an official website of the armed forces.

Searches for the forum’s Twitter handle, which was verified, and their Facebook page turned up messages that they had both been suspended.

On Saturday, numerous Indian Twitter users complained about Pakistan Defence Forum’s Twitter handle when it posted a doctored image of Kawalpreet Kaur, a student activist of Delhi University that purported to show her standing in front of Delhi’s Jama Masjid with a poster that read: “I am an Indian but I hate India…”

The poster used by Kaur in an image that she had herself posted on Twitter on June 27 this year had read: “I am a citizen of India and I stand with secular values of our Constitution.” At the time, Kaur had said she was asking Indians to change their profile images to “protest mob lynching”.

True story, there goes the Defence of Pakistan. pic.twitter.com/HV4K9bwpUm

Other than running malicious campaigns against several Pakistani journalists/activists, defencepk was also morphing photos to further its propaganda: pic.twitter.com/qK7ZLQM29G

The issue of Kaur’s photo being doctored by flagged by Shehla Rashid, the former vice president of the JNU Students Union, who contended that forum should not use such images in the name of the Kashmir issue.

I hope this is not official defence page of Pakistan otherwise there is a real security concern if you use morphed pictures just to spread hate across nations. Please put it down.

Also on Saturday, Pakistan Defence Forum had tweeted that India had “refused to avail the generous offer made by #Pakistan to facilitate a meeting” between Kulbhushan Jadhav, sentenced to death by a military court for alleged involvement in espionage, and his wife.

The tweet posted by Pakistan Defence Forum about India purportedly refusing Pakistan’s offer to arrange a meeting between Kulbhushan Jadhav and his wife. (Twitter screengrab)

The reality was that India had accepted the offer and asked for Jadhav’s mother to be included in the meeting. Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesman had even acknowledged, in a tweet, that India had sent in a reply to the offer to facilitate the meeting.

Indian Reply to Pakistan’s Humanitarian offer for Commander Jadhav received & is being considered

Following the suspension of the Twitter handle and Facebook pages, a thread on Pakistan Defence Forum was devoted to discussing the matter and numerous members hurled abuse at India and Indian nationals.

The various threads in Pakistan Defence Forum are devoted to discussing issues such as Pakistan’s politics, operations against terrorists, and also problems faced by Muslims around the world. The threads are also replete with the conspiracy theories that often find space in mainstream Pakistani media and discussions about India’s domestic politics.

In the past, Pakistan Defence Forum has also been accused of running malicious campaigns against Pakistani journalists, commentators, and activists who have been critical of the powerful military and intelligence agencies.
