    Saw that, it ranks right up there with the LEO who got out of his cruiser for a little one-on-one BB with a lonely kid. The majority of LEOs are great, it's the squeaky wheels that draw the most attention.

    This actually happens quite frequently however it doesn't make the news. OTOH, when a cop does something wrong that becomes very "news worthy"! BTW, I am not defending the actions of a bad cop who tarnishes the good work and sacrifices of 99% of the hardworking cops out there!

    I don't get tired of reading these types of stories.

    How many Billion dollars aid did we send to some third world cesspool and we have children in situations like this in the US. Way to go Government take care of the others and let your own fail. Schools and school infrastructure failing. seven million dollar vacation regardless Democrat or Republican. 172K for legislators base pay not perks.

    Good honest job not as a cop but as a human being. Bravo Zulu

    This act of human kindness brought a tear to my eye. Now I need to blow my nose.

    Nice story. I mean, it's too bad the kid is a Duke fan, but still.

    This is not law enforcement. This is police work. There is a difference.

    Agreed Lt......it's also hard to play football in a front yard with a duty belt on.
