While the police have been vilified in the mainstream media as of late, there are still a vast majority of law enforcement officers out there whose “protect and serve” ethos is intact.

Thanks to the quick thinking of one Texas police officer, in fact, a despondent young man is still alive…despite his attempted suicide from a highway overpass in Arlington.

Body cam footage posted on Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson’s Twitter page shows the moment that Arlington Police Corporal Deric Sheriff figured out a plan for a passerby truck driver to park his 18 wheeler directly under a young man, positioning on an overpass, who was “contemplating jumping.”

“You wanna pull underneath the bridge and park under the bridge in case he decides to jump, he’ll land on the trailer?” Cpl. Sheriff is heard saying to the truck driver, Dwayne Crawford, on the video.

The officer lamented that it took several moments to find a suitable tractor trailer for his rescue mission, as the highway was littered with flatbeds at the crucial moment.  The lower height of these haulers wouldn’t have made enough of a difference for the suicidal young person, and a full sized, box-style truck just happened to pull around in the nick of time.

Crawford arrived with his rig in the nick of time.

“As soon as I went under and started under the bridge, I looked up. The young man looks down at me, and I thought, ‘Oh, man. He’s serious,’” Crawford told KDFW. “As soon as I got under the bridge with my tractor and got the trailer under it, I felt a thump.”

Single Mom Who Lost Job During Lockdown Gives Lottery Winnings To Cop Shot In The Line Of Duty

With nearly endless coverage of all the chaos and violence bombarding us on network news, not to mention the whole fight over mask mandates, coronavirus safety measures, and everything else happening in the world, it can be easy to think there’s no goodness left in the world. Of course, as long as Jesus Christ is on the throne we know that’s not true, but sometimes, you just need to be reminded that He’s still at work in the world around us. And He is, folks. He truly is. That’s why we need to hear stories like the following. Apparently, a single mom who lost her job during the lockdown over coronavirus, has donated lottery winnings to a police officer that was shot in the line of duty. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Shetara Sims lost her job amid the coronavirus pandemic and had $7 to her name, local outlet WITN reported Tuesday. She found a $1 bill in a grocery store parking lot, bought a scratch-off ticket, and won $100. Her daughter, Rakiya Edmonson, suggested they donate the money to an officer who was shot on the job on July 2 and remains in the intensive care unit. “She won $100, and I said we should donate it to the police officer that got shot for his family to go eat and see him,” Edmonson said. Sims agreed with her daughter and said she was motivated to donate because of the empathy officers had shown her following her sister’s 2012 murder. Sims went on to discuss how detectives were really there for her and her family during that difficult season of life. “The detectives were really there for us. They were there for us more than anyone I can imagine. They did things they didn’t have to…

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.
