She Got Pulled Over For Expired Tags, But What The Officer Did Next Was Totally Unexpected

What Liska did next was absolutely unbelievable.

It can’t be easy to be a police officer knowing that there will be times when doing your duty and upholding the law means catching an otherwise good person in the middle of a bad decision.

While we are all responsible for the choices we make that land us in the glow of those red and blue lights, once in a while, a tenderhearted officer comes along and not only cuts us some much-appreciated slack but changes our lives.

Last year, a young woman named Lauren Bruner was in the grip of a severe bout of depression which ultimately led to her losing her job.

Thankfully, Bruner was able to get some help and turn things around, including a new job, but she wasn’t totally back on her feet just yet.

When she encountered Officer David Liska of the Clive, Iowa Police Department, Bruner was driving her car with expired tags—and worse, no insurance.

In a heartfelt Facebook post describing the incident, Bruner’s mom, Michelle, said Bruner told Officer Liska the truth:

“The officer asked her what was causing her to not get her tags and she was honest with him and explained why and also let him know that she was getting paid Friday and had planned on getting the tags.”

“She teared up and she talked about depression and a hospital stay, and we have a daughter who had depression, and it just clicked,” Liska said in a tearful interview with KCCI.

What Liska did next was absolutely unbelievable.

Not only did the self-described “softie” let Bruner off with a warning, he took down her contact information and called his wife for the go-ahead on a rather big expense: he was going to pay for her tag renewal and a whole month of insurance coverage.

“The kindness, compassion, and generosity shown by this Clive officer and his wife has touched both of our hearts more deeply than they will ever know,” Michelle said of Liska and his wife’s incredible gift to her daughter. “He had every right to give her the tickets or, at minimum, the warnings, but he went above and beyond for my daughter.”

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for seeing the kind, caring, loving young woman Lauren is and giving her a chance to get back on her feet,” she said in her Facebook post, which rightfully went viral. “This family was truly put here by GOD and GOD put him in Lauren’s path that day, I have no doubt.”

“This job has exposed me to so much hurt in other people’s lives so I’m just generally empathetic by nature,” Liska said, noting that, as an officer, he has the privilege of helping out people in some of their biggest struggles.

As for the act of kindness he and his wife committed, Liska says there’s “nothing special” about it. “We’re doing what a lot of other people are doing. We just got caught, so to speak.”

Liska and his brothers and sisters in blue already do so much for their communities. For him to do something so amazingly generous like this is sure to restore your faith in human kindness.

It’s not often that hardcore, gangster-rappers find themselves in the position that Dr. Dre is in, and that is what makes him so special. You see, when it comes to the entertainment industry’s elite, there seems to be no end to the depravity.  We hear sordid and salacious tales of Hollywood’s dark corners all of the time, including a recent story in which actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were arrested on major fraud charges. Loughlin and her husband allegedly agreed to pay $500,000 to improve their children’s chances of getting admitted into USC. The actress is one of about 40 people who have been charged in the scandal. Actress Felicity Huffman was also named in the indictment. The aforementioned Dr. Dre was not named in that scandal, and proudly took to social media to poke fun at the situation, while also bragging about his daughter’s acceptance into USC. https://www.instagram.com/p/BvX1OLwJljR/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet And that’s not even the tip of the iceberg of Dre’s positivity. Dre, who is from Compton, has made multiple donations to schools in Southern California, including a $10 million donation to Compton High School for a performing arts complex in 2017 and a $70 million donationto USC to create a new arts, technology and business academy in 2013. The latter gift came from both Dre and music producer-turned-entrepreneur Jimmy Iovine. What a world we live in where sitcom actresses are going to federal prison and gangster-rappers are bragging on their daughters and building schools.

New Zealand Madman Bravely Chased by ‘Good Guy’ with a Gun

As with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

New Zealand

 The sheer horror and terror of what has occurred in New Zealand stands at such close proximity at this time, that it is difficult to fully gauge its gravity. It has certainly shocked the nation itself, as New Zealand isn’t known as a dangerous, or even particularly excitable, place.  The serene and unfathomably gorgeous surroundings, along with the California-like dichotomy of beaches and ski mountains within hours of one another, lends the Kiwis the unmistakeable air of “chill” that one normally reserves for Malibu or San Diego. In fact, this rampage claimed the lives of more New Zealanders than an entire year of homicides would have in the country. But, as with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit. https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1106407956122263552?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1106407956122263552&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2019%2F03%2F14%2Freport-good-guy-gun-chased-shot-new-zealand-attackers%2F That’s right; a good guy with a gun.  It’s the same story that we hear time and again, all over the globe, and it rings fundamentally true in nearly all aspects of life. It is not enough to hope and pray for the bad guys to turn the other cheek.  No; we must also hope and pray that good men will not stand aside and do nothing in the face of such evil.  And, by God, let’s hope they’re armed.
