White woman reports black man to 911 for babysitting two white children at a Walmart
Corey Lewis, a youth mentor, was babysitting the two children when he says the woman approached them to find out if the kids were okay. When he refused to let her talk to them, she followed them and reported them
The internet is up in arms after a video posted by Atlanta resident Corey Lewis shows a white woman harassing him because he was babysitting two white children at a Walmart. Lewis was sitting in the parking lot of a Walmart in suburban Atlanta on Sunday when he says the woman approached him and asked to check on the kids, a 10-year-old girl, and a six-year-old boy.
Lewis refused to let the woman check on the children, resulting in him being stalked by her as he drove them back to his house. In a video he posted on his Facebook timeline, Lewis can be seen addressing how he's babysitting the two kids before turning the camera to show the car of the woman following them. Posted with the caption, "I’m being harassed because I’m with 2 kids that do not look like me," Lewis goes on to explain how the woman threatened to call the police.
In a followup video, Lewis continues, stating how the woman had now begun tailing their car and was following him back home. She would end up calling 911 on him and request a welfare check on the children. A third video shows a Cobb County police officer arriving at the residence to question Lewis and the children.
"The police is here. I can't believe I have to deal with this. This is crazy," he bemoans. When the officer comes over and questions Lewis, he says he was harassed by the woman when he was babysitting the two kids at the Walmart, and that they were there to eat at Subway and fill up the gas in his car.
The officer then asks to speak with the kids himself, to which Lewis initially protests before reluctantly agreeing. He lets the children out his car, who promptly tell the cop that he was their babysitter and that the other woman started following them without cause.
The officer explains that he was just responding to the 911 call to make sure everything was fine, to which Lewis says it was and that he's a youth mentor. The matter came to a close after the cop calls up the children's parents, David Parker and Dana Mango.
Speaking to CBS46, Mango said, "I said are you saying that because there's an African American male driving my two white kids, that he was stopped and pulled over and questioned and he said I'm sorry ma'am that's exactly what I'm saying." The parents also said that their son attends Lewis' mentoring program and that they had arranged from him to watch their children.
The identity of the woman is currently unclear, and it is not known if she will be facing any action for reporting Lewis to the police.
