She actually called the police on a child?

A black boy who a white woman accused of groping her is innocent, surveillance footage shows.
In the video obtained by the New York Post, Teresa Klein can be seen standing at the counter to pay for items at the Sahara Deli Markey in Flatbush, New York, when the boy, wearing a school uniform and backpack and carrying a plastic bag, passes her.
The boy’s bag appears to brush against Klein as he passes, and she reacts by turning around and starting to yell at the boy and his family.
In footage of the confrontation between Klein and the boy’s mother that went viral this week, Klein can be heard calling police while the boy and his sister cry.
“I want the cops here right now!” Klein says on her phone. “The son grabbed my ass, and she decided to yell at me.”
After bystanders remonstrate with her, Klein is heard saying sarcastically into the phone, “White woman calling the cops on a black lady, I get it.”
“The son grabbed my a–, and she’s decided to yell at me,” she tells emergency services.
As you can see the woman did eventually apologize when shown the tape, but why in the hell did she feel it was necessary to call the police in the first place?
Did you hear his little sister crying? She will never forget that this happened to her family.
This is the kind of thing that scars children and makes them mistrust people and fear the police.
What’s more, this is part of a growing trend of white people calling the police on black folks who are doing nothing illegal.
Since Trump took office this has become something that seems to happen on an almost daily basis.
And it is all kinds of fucked up.
