S&F! What a sweet cop. Sure a lot of people didn't give this man a second look, or, if they did, it was a dirty look. He saw a person in need, and
helped them. One of those many good cops, that some claim don't exist. I hope this will inspire people to do something similar. Help some one out
in need. If you don't have homeless where you live, drop some groceries for a neighbor in need, donate to a local food pantry (they ALWAYS need
donations), something. Then, offer a thanks to the cops, working hard on holidays to keep our cities safer. Most of them are regular people, trying
to do a hard job with little to no appreciation.
Had to add something to this, after reading some of the posts. Seriously, people, you don't think a cop could be a nice guy, and just give someone in
need a pair of boots? That sounds like the same sort of hatred that I have heard towards military people, calling them all programmed killers, or
some such nonsense. How many of you claiming this is a setup have given anything to someone in need recently? Donated any of your time? As for the
fellow being outside a shoe store, well, duh? He needed shoes. Maybe he hoped someone would see him there, and get him a pair. I personally SAW
that happen once. Was in DFW area, on vacation with my dad. Homeless guy (really homeless - dirty clothing, tattered, gaunt, etc.) was outside a
cheap shoe store, that sold $5 a pair shoes. He was barefoot, because someone had apparently stolen his, while he slept. My dad gave him $5, and he
went right in for the shoes, too. Sometimes, something is exactly what it seems; a person in need being helped by a person that is able. Just
because they care.
Has it occurred to anyone that maybe the reason some cops do act like jerks is because a lot of people assume they are bad, no matter what they do?
If someone told you that you were horrible, day in and day out, how would you feel? Cops are people. Some good, some bad, just like any other group
of people. If you want to condemn them all, then post your profession, and we can all look up stories of people in that field that did bad things,
and claim they are all the same. Sound fair? Didn't think so. All cops aren't bad because some are. All teachers aren't bad because some molest
students. All postal workers aren't bad because one shot up his workplace. All (insert race or group here) aren't bad because some do evil things.
All students aren't psychos because some shoot up their schools. I could go on, but I would hope the point is made.
