A traffic stop in Plano ended unlike any you've ever heard about before. It started when Hayden Carlo was pulled over for an expired registration sticker. Carlo says he's been struggling to support his wife and two small children.
"You get paid, pay your bills, and there's your money. It's gone." He told the officer he had no excuse for the expired sticker. "I said 'there's no explanation for why I haven't done it, except I don't have the money.' I said 'it was either feed my kids or get my registration done."
The officer wrote a citation and handed it to the 25-year-old. Carlo says when he took it, he could not believe what he saw. "I opened it up and there's a 100 dollar bill. I broke down in my car what else could I do." The officer never told anyone about the $100 gift. But Carlo's grandfather, Billy McIntire, was so moved by the kind gesture he wrote a letter to the department.
"I get emotional when we talk about this type of thing," McIntire says. "You just don't find that many officers who would do this type of thing." While other officers around the country have recently been recognized for similar acts, this officer wants to remain anonymous. His coworkers plan to honor him anyway. "As he told me, this man needed it more than him, and it was the right thing to do," says fellow officer and department spokesperson David Tilley.
Carlo was able to update his the registrations on his car and his wife's car with the money. He's now driving to a new job and providing for his growing family, after a gift from the last person he would have expected to help during tough times. "He helped me out when I needed it and I appreciate that. I'll never forget that man," Carlo says. "It definitely restored my faith in God."
Hopefully this can restore your faith in humanity. This is a video of police officers respecting their oath to serve & protect.
San Diego police Officer Jeremy Henwood is seen on surveillance video buying food at a McDonald's for a child he had never met who didn't have enough money. Minutes later, he was shot and killed by a suicidal man while sitting in his patrol car -- the food in his patrol car was still warm.

I see it like this. We don't need to talk about 'good cops' because that is the basic norm they should be

Is he single?
As to the thread, you and me both. Ferguson is only out hand because of media and their agendas. So much for the holidays there. Wonder what's going to happen when they have no supplies left to live on.

The one thing I have noticed is, the smaller the town, the nicer the cops are. The larger the town, the bigger dicks the cops are.
If only they could find a middle ground.
