We’re so conditioned to seeing horrible things these days (especially from dash cams), that when I first heard about a viral video of a cop stopping a boy playing in the road, I prepared for some awful scene.
But then the footage started, and it was quite the opposite. An officer, on his beat, paused to have a catch with the youngster. A random act of kindness knifing its way through the Internet’s snark. Who would’ve thunk it?
Tuck this one away for those cynical days when you need a pleasant pick-me-up.
