While I become enraged sometimes at the news regarding out-of-control or plain stupid law enforcement personnel, I also think that quite the opposite is also the case; this is one of those cases:

http://w ww.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/victoria-police-officer-buys-plane-ticket-for-senior-to-reunite-her-with-family-1.3184094


A Victoria police officer who bought a plane ticket for a disoriented senior so that she could be reunited with her family was quick to deflect praise for his kindness.

The 65-year-old woman was reported missing by the Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines vessel Jewel of the Sea on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. PT. She had left the ship when it docked in Victoria at 10 a.m. and did not return, and the ship left without her.


That is above and beyond the call of duty in my mind! A stranger and someone just personally pay's the lady's way. If everyone in the planet did just one nice thing such as this in one month, the world would quite literally change (in my opinion).


Victoria K-9 officer Const. Andre Almeida took her to the local hospital to be assessed. That's when he decided to arrange a flight for the elderly woman from Victoria to Seattle, so that she could catch her existing flight back to New York.


The officer's reasoning:


'It could be my mom stranded somewhere'


Well done sir, you have my respect and admiration!

Nice gesture, hope more follow the lead. Canadian cops don't have the rep of our cops, but still nice to know they aren't acting the same.

I give our police here a lot of respect and they seem to be a lot more professional than what I see coming from America but we do have completely different populations.
