Normally all we hear about is how cops are going around and denying our rights or committing acts of brutality or even gunning down the innocent.

However today I'd like to post about what I saw on the way to work.

I was coming to stop at a red light. And beginning to cross the street was an elderly couple. The older gentleman was in a walker and obviously would not make it across the street before the light changed to green again.

The first car at red light was a Miami-Dade County Police Officer. The Officer seeing also that the older gentleman wouldn't make it across in time drove his squad car into the intersection. The Officer turned on his lights and stopped traffic until the man in the walker made it across the street.

I just want to give some recognition to the good cops out there who actually make our city a better place to live.

Maybe he was trying to prevent an accident with the elderly crossing the street. When lights are green people aren't expecting a pedestrian to cross at those times.

The good stories are few and far between the bad ones. The reason we mention the bad cop stories is to make others aware of the "growing" problem of police brutality and abuse of power. Once those issues are solved, then I'll be the first person to tell good cop stories, because I like those a lot more.

that doesnt make a good cop nor does that make the city a better place to live.

if anything it was done out of both convenience and not doing the paper work on an old man who probably shouldnt be out of his house if he walks that damn slow, that got ran over.

Thats pretty cool , yea lots of good cops out there , who truly deserve that pay check and respect from the public.

I seen a car that drove into a ditch , the owner was acting very strange laying down , making weird faces , while an officer was trying to help him get up . Holding his hand talking to him getting him to come back to reality . Dunno what was wrong with the dude , The car wasn't damaged , it just slide off into a ditch , but he was on the other side on the ground being weird lol . But i applaude the officers patience in dealing with people.

The thing with good deeds is if you do 100 good things , people hardly remember , But you do one bad thing they will never forget :p .

Cops are noticed when something bad happens , but all the days weeks months and years of goodness is out the window.

The cup is half empty type of guy aren't you?
I'll stick with my version of the story. And disagree with you.
I'm my mind, even if it doesn't make him a good cop, at least it makes him a decent human.

I agree with you. I think that makes him a good guy. In this day and age, people are in too big of a hurry all the time. Worst case, he could have been hit. At the least someone would have laid on the horn and embarrassed or startled him.

Now that is a story to bring a smile instead of a groan for a change. S/F! I'll bet that old man was just about beyond words for emotion at that gesture of kindness.

It's kind of sad that the cop realized he had to do this to keep the man safe......remember when people really followed that law about crosswalks and not crossing them while people are IN them?? ... but it's so nice to hear about the cops who likely are there for all the right reasons and still look for ways to help people.
