Miami Cop Buys Food for Shoplifting Mom #goodcops

Cool story out of Miami: officer Vicki Thomas was called out for a shoplifting complaint. When the suspect told her how she could not afford food for her children, the cop took it on her own initiative to purchase some groceries for the family. She did her job, and cited the lady for the criminal charge, but she was nice enough not to arrest her for the misdemeanor. That’s in contrast to so many people who get thrown into jail for minor offenses and compound the problems. Hopefully the prosecutor and judge will also show her some sympathy.

Here’s the video story: http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/bestoftv/2013/10/23/cop-buys-groceries-better-thomas-stuff-newday.cnn.html
