It looked like at first they were delivering newspapers or something, but I noticed they were walking up to the houses with nothing in hand and one of them came back with something.
I mean, I don't want to say something was going on, but it just but it just seemed kind of suspicious.
After the incident, Brandie took to Facebook in a now viral post, to express her shock and sadness at the event, which she believes was an instance of racial profiling.
In the post, Brandie said:
Sad I cant even teach my son the value of working without someone whispering and looking at us out the side of their eye perhaps because we DON'T 'look like a person that belongs in their neighbourhood'.
Police officer pulls up and ask us questions as if we were intruding in their area.
Totally disgusted and disturbed that this kind of behaviour still exist.
Continuing in her post, she apologised to the people of Upper Arlington for bringing her '12-year-old African American son' into their neighbourhood.
My apologies Upper Arlington for bringing my 12 year old African American son into your neighbourhood to deliver the paper and make a few dollars on the side... NO HARM INTENDED.
I will make sure my boss changes his route.
Since posting the images and text, the post has gone viral and has been shared more than 1,600 times. It also has thousands of comments, mostly commending Brandie and her sons.
