Mowing the Lawn To Help Keep Someone Out of Jail


This video helps demonstrate some of the problems with the legal system, while also showing the goodness of people. A seventy-five-year-old woman had overly long grass in her fields that had passed some legal threshold for length. She supposedly received a letter asking her to appear in court over this, and she did not receive the letter. She did receive an arrest warrant after that, escalating the situation in the process.

Local individuals, many of them children, soon pitched in without being asked and started cutting the grass in her fields. The kids didn’t even know her, and neither did many people in the community. However, they all soon managed to get all of the grass in her fields cut, which hopefully will make the entire legal situation redundant. People on Facebook would find the political and social content of this video interesting, and they might express some outrage over the situation.
