We all know what a danger to a community tree houses are, especially those built by black kids.

“Police in Georgia are investigating reports that officers pulled a gun on African-American children who were building a tree house in their neighborhood.

Omari Grant, 11, told WSB-TV that he and several friends were behind his home constructing the tree fort when a neighbor called 911 with concerns’ about the children’s safety.

“There were falling hazards, tripping hazards, all types of hazards, so No. 1 was concern for the children and concern for the environment,” Edgar Dillard, whose wife made the 911 call, explained.

And the Henry County police officers who showed up took the call so seriously that they were prepared to use deadly force.
