 There are some pretty horrific stories about horrible, abusive and criminal police officers. Their stories should be told...

BUT

So should the great and positive police officers that care about their community and go above and beyond the call of duty!

 

A police officer in South Carolina went above and beyond for a 13-year-old boy. The boy called police saying he was upset after fighting with his mother and that he didn't want to live there anymore. The officer who responded to the call went to the home and realized the boy didn't have a real bed. A few weeks later, the officer came back to the house with a truck full of gifts, including a TV, a Wii game system and a bed.

LIKE this post if this story touched your heart.

 Thank you for posting these!  I try to stay out of the "bad cop" posts because I am very biased when it comes to law enforcement.

I know there are officers out there with a "Robocop" complex, but I know the vast majority are good people who really do want to make their community a better place and who have good hearts.  I see so many volunteer for youth organizations and who have befriended those they see as "at risk" and who have made a profound difference in kids' lives that last into their adulthood.

The good far outweighs the bad. The problem is when officer involved 'badness' happens it tends to be very very very bad and overshadows the good.

*sorry if any are repeats

The other day I hit a crosswalk with my three year old. She stopped and whipped her head both ways and said 'we can go!'
I reminded her we have to look closely and make sure Cars aren't turning our way.
There was an officer on the other side and he walked into the crosswalk smiling and said 'come on over, the cars will stop for me.' And then He gave my kiddo a high five and said he was proud of her for being safe. A small thing but a very nice community outreach and friendly thing.

While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, an officer was interrupted by a little boy about six years old. Looking up and down at his uniform, he asked, “Are you a cop?”

“Yes,” he replied and continued writing the report.

“My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?”

“Yes, that’s right,” he told him.

“Well, then,” he said as he extended his foot towards the officer, “would you please tie my shoe?”

3 of DH's cousins are policemen and they are definitely good guys. The one is in charge of the K-9 unit and loves taking the dogs to schools and working with kids.

Can we tell personal stories?

Edit: Nevermind, I see a couple of personal stories, lol. 

I made a buttload of cookies and cupcakes for my mom's appreciation dinner or whatever it was and it was raining something fierce out here and I had to stop by the store to get some more supplies.  Well, while I was leaving there was a patrol car outside and I don't know why they were there, but I was trying to carry all that junk to the car and ended up dropping one of the bags and pretty much busted my eggs and flour.  I don't know why I was trying to carry everything, but I was in a rush and wasn't thinking straight, that day was already going terribly and my mom didn't make this request until two days prior.  So one of the officers saw I was looking an ass in the parking lot, cussing and he walked over, helped me pick up some of my stuff and then gave me money to purchase more of what I lost.  He then asked me what it was for and said that it was nice of me to do that and then told me that if I wanted to, I could meet back up at the store at 6:30 and he could help me transport all of my goodies.  I thought he was bullshitting, but I was like wth, I gotta go that way to get to my mama's dinner....so I did and he was there, in plain clothes though and helped me like he said he would.  Followed me to the meeting hall, helped me take everything out of the car and into the building and even stayed during the dinner.

Hubs said he was just trying to get my cookies, lol.  I don't think so, but ya never know...I've got good cookies.
