His Generosity And Passion Were a Threat To The Police

Brennon Jones was using his gifts and talents to help the less fortunate - by giving free haircuts, as well as toiletries, clothes, and food, to homeless folks in his Philadelphia, PA community. But, as they say, “A good deed never goes unpunished.”

The cops rolled up on Jones and demanded he stop performing this selfless act, giving him no explanation whatsoever.

The Mayor of Philadelphia and the City Council had both approved everything, but apparently these cops didn’t like Black people loving and supporting each other.

After the incident, the police department claimed that they had received complaints from local businesses about loose hair in the street - but Jones does not operate near any businesses, and has a helper who cleans up after each cut.

Sounds like they’re trying to cover their tracks with made-up excuses, which we know the police do all the time.

But he refuses to stop - they’re not gonna shut down this incredible man’s passion for helping his community!
