Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Woman calls cops on black boy delivering newspapers in Ohio neighborhood - NY Daily News”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A fledgling paperboy working alongside his mother in suburban Columbus, Ohio, came face-to-face with a cop after a neighbor thought he was up to no good.

The nosy neighbor spied the 12-year-old boy, who is black, hop out of a van and walk up to a handful of Upper Arlington homes Friday. She initially assumed he was delivering newspapers, she told authorities, but soon thought otherwise.

"I noticed they were walking up to houses with nothing-in-hand and one of them came back with something," the 911 caller said, according to WSYX-TV. “It seemed kind of suspicious.”

The mother explained to the officer dispatched to check on her youngest son, Uriah Sharp, delivered his papers to the wrong home and was picking them up. The officer “quickly determined” that’s exactly what the Sharps were doing, according to police.

First day of paper route and we are pulled over by police????????...Sad I cant even teach my son the value of working without...
