This is Community Service! Instead of Ticketing Them, Cops Cut Grass...


Last month, TFTP reported the story out of Orono, Minn. in which police officer Matt Siltala was called out to a residence over tall grass. Instead of ticketing the elderly woman who lived in the home and who could no longer mow her grass, Siltala cut her grass for her. Now, it appears that this kindness and community policing is spreading. After all, the best way to lead is by example, and Siltala's example is hard not to follow.

A group called Raising Men Lawn Care Service RMLCS is an organization who created what they call the 50 yard challenge. The challenge is designed for boys and girls to encourage them to cut 50 yards in their community, for free.

We challenge you to cut 50 lawns FREE for the elderly, disabled, single mothers, and the veterans in your town. If you accept this challenge, all you need to do is send us a photo of you holding a sign saying "I accept the 50 Yard Challenge", and in return, we'll send you your white RMLCS shirt along with shades & ear protection to get you started.
