A video posted on YouTube earlier this month shows a black real estate investor in Memphis, Tennessee dealing with local police officers after a neighbor called them on him while he was trying to fix up the next-door house.
As real estate investor Michael Hayes writes, he went to the house, which is in a dilapidated condition, to inspect it. The woman came out of the house and asked him what he was doing. At this point, he showed her the investment contract that he had giving him permission to work on the house, as well as written permission that he received from the house’s owner to be on the property.
However, this didn’t seem to satisfy the woman’s suspicions about him, and she ended up calling the police.
When the police arrived on the scene, Hayes calmly explained the situation to the officers, who were sympathetic to what he was saying. They then asked the woman in the neighboring house to let him do his job.
The woman tells the officers that he can do his job — but then she glares at him and tells him, “Hurry up, do it, and get out!”
The officers inform the woman that he doesn’t have to hurry up on her commands and can take all day to inspect the home if he wants.
Toward the end of the video, Hayes praises the cops for the way they handled the situation.
“They could tell the lady was crazy,” he said.

New testimony adds 2 stunning — and previously unknown — details about the Ukraine extortion
New testimony released Monday from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Ukraine scandal included at least two new stunning details about the quid pro quo scheme at the heart of the matter.
Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.
Trump blasted for his ‘Endorsement of Doom’ after Sean Spicer loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."
Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.
Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.
Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.
Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!
‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
