Good apples in blue

Well, I am going to do something politically incorrect.  I’m going to point out a case where police officers were caught performing an act of kindness.

Recognizing the family was down on their luck, Gower and Hawkins decided to buy the girls — ages 1, 3 and 4 — car seats instead of ticketing the father.

“Giving him three tickets, it wasn’t going to do any good,” Gower told KVUE. “Those kids were still going to have to be driven somewhere, somehow with no car seats.”

The officers could have just gave the father a ticket or even arrested him.  Rather than be punitive, they chose mercy.  These are the kind of officers who deserve to wear a badge.
