An uplifting story from South Carolina, a cop found that a young man didn’t have a proper bed, so he gave him one, along with several other gifts. He said his heart went out to the kid, and is planning to get him a dresser and mirror when he can. Great community building by this officer!
Lee County Deputies and Collier County Deputies teamed up to save a horse that was on the verge of drowning in a mudhole. Great work guys!

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.
