Two police officers in Tukwila, Washington are going viral after a story broke concerning the actions they took to provide help and support to a young boy spotted playing in a park in only his socks.
A post about the incident was posted on Tukwila Police Department’s Facebook page, though the two officers involved wished to remain anonymous. The officers in question found the boy playing in his torn socks, a cut in his foot bleeding freely.
When asked by police officers why the young boy wasn’t wearing any shoes, the child responded that he didn’t have any shoes because he’d outgrown his last pair and had no more pairs that fit him anymore.
Upon hearing the young boy’s sad story, one of the officers got the young boy’s shoe size and ran out to purchase a pair of shoes for the little one — and he even came back with popsicles as an additional treat.
The post, which has been liked more than 2,000 times at the time of this writing, showed a picture of the unidentified officer tying the shoes of the boy — who can be seen with a popsicle gripped in his little hand.
Sooo … Sergeant Modest and Officer Bashful (names have been changed to protect their bashfulness) were patrolling on foot at Cascade View Park yesterday afternoon. They came across this guy running around in torn dirty socks and bleeding from a decent sized cut on the bottom of his foot. The sergeant cleaned up and patched his foot with his first aid kit. When asked where his shoes were, their new friend told them that he didn’t have any shoes because the pair he had was too small for his feet to fit in.
The sergeant ran out and grabbed a pair of shoes for him while the officer kept him and his friends company. He came back with not only a pair of shoes, but also with a bunch of popsicles because what isn’t better than a cold popsicle on a hot summer day?! The officer helped to tie his new friend’s shoes and they all enjoyed a popsicle together before parting ways.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is what real police officers are actually like. The mainstream media wants you to believe they’re all violent racists who are itching for an opportunity to shoot a black person. That’s simply not the truth. At all.
Being a cop is a tough job, one fraught with peril and danger around every corner. These brave men and women go out on the job each night, aware they may not come home. And yet, they go anyway, opting to serve and protect. That makes them heroes.
And seeing officers come to the aid of a boy in need like this is just a beautiful picture of what it means to serve and protect. God bless our police.
