    This happened back in July in my state, but I still thought it was a great story to see in these times:
    9 Year Old Girl Uses Birthday Money to Buy Detroit Police Lunch

    DETROIT -- Police officers at Detroit's 11th Precinct got a special birthday surprise on Saturday from a generous little girl.

    A nine-year-old Detroit girl decided to celebrate her birthday not by receiving gifts, but by giving them, CBS Detroit reported.

    Samya McLaughlin brought bagged lunches -- made up of sandwiches, chips, fruit and a cookie -- that she paid for with her own birthday money as a gift for officers at the precinct.

    "I was thinking that I should feed the police officers because I wanted to show them that I support them and I thank them for all that they do," McLaughlin said. "I wanted to show them that all lives matter."

    How did the young girl come up with the idea? After watching the news with her grandmother and seeing the devastation this week in Dallas, McLaughlin thought she would do something special for the officers in her community.

    "We discuss things that's going on," McLaughlin's mother said. "I always ask her how she feels about it."

    The officers made Samya "Officer of the Day" and presented her with gifts of her own as a thank you.

    "It makes you feel proud," McLaughlin's father Sam Walker said. "She has a big heart and she knows how to care, and she knows how to appreciate what's going on."

    Samya also passed out around 30 bagged lunches to the homeless in Detroit's Cass Corridor.
    Honestly it's just a breath of fresh air to hear about something this where it's through the innocence of a child rather than tinged with some cynical implication or ulterior motivation to a make a point any which way. Just an act of kindness that holds many lessons many of us could all learn from and to set aside petty differences to stand together as a community.
    I will stand firm, I refuse to kneel - The fury in me is divine
    My dark grave awaits, my fate is revealed - But I'm not afraid to die

    If you have any problems or need advice, feel free to ask

    I made a thread about a positive police interaction that happened in Plano, TX between a cop and two onlookers who helped him safely make an arrest.

    It was promptly deleted. Why?

    California police buy walk-to-work teen a bicycle
    Jourdan Duncan used to listen to music as he walked to work, five hours there and back. These days, it's the sound of the wind that fills his ears as the California teenager rides to work on a new bicycle, the gift of local police officers who felt his dedication ought to be recognized........

    Saw a young black kid about 7-9 trying to take off the gas cap of his mom's car to help her out while she went in the store. He kept turning it right and I heard like 20 clicks. Told him to push down and turn left and he got it off.

    It's the little things brah. Maybe the positive encounter will be something he remembers even if it's small.

    After that some mentally ill B/M came up to me and started talking to me about how he makes money by selling books. He went on and on about numbers and I legitimately had no idea what he was really talking about. He was talking about medicaid/CRN's/food stamps. It was really weird. He seemed in good physical health...but man I don't know what his train of thought was.

    So I see two black males playing basketball on the street. One is like 8-10 and the other is 25-30. I am in the area for a call for service at a house which ends up being nothing so when I'm done with that I walk by the guys and say "Can I shoot around with you guys?"

    Older one says : "No"

    I then ask the young one who says "Yes" and we play a little 1-on-1 for 5 minutes.

    Let him beat me and went along with my day. Got a good laugh at getting rejected by the older guy.

    Not directly related to the topic, but this is a great piece:
    http://www.theimaginativeconservativ...is-markos.html

    This semester, I am happily exercising one of my coveted privileges as an English professor: to guide a class of eager undergraduates through the beautiful and heroic but dangerous and elegiac world of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. Tolkien takes his time developing his epic fantasy, allowing his readers to fall in love with the Shire, the pastoral home of the hobbits. Though perhaps a bit too bourgeois and self-satisfied in their creature comforts, the hobbits nevertheless lead a charmed life that allows them to take full enjoyment in what Tolkien, in his Prologue, tells us they most love: “peace and quiet and good tilled earth.”

    The Shire is a safe haven protected from the pains and hazard of the wide world, a walled, edenic garden sheltered from the growing darkness of the Dark Lord Sauron. Though the hobbits do not know it, and though they feel no gratitude for it, their idyllic existence relies upon the vigilance and military prowess of the Rangers, descendants of the Men of the West who, under the leadership of Aragorn, the rightful king of Middle-earth, patrol the borders of the Shire and of the neighboring town of Bree: home of the inn of the Prancing Pony and its fat, jolly owner, Barliman Butterbur.

    ...

    Rather than face head on the cost of peace and security in a dangerous world, we grew content to live our lives with our eyes wide shut. Instead of expressing gratitude to those who patrolled our borders, we found it less taxing on our conscience to choose, every so often, a military or police scapegoat on which to unload our hatred, our fear, and our paranoia: hate rallies, as George Orwell so prophetically named them in 1984. How difficult and painful it is for fallen creatures to admit their need for help and protection and to be thankful for those who fulfill that need.

    ...

    I honestly believe the real reason that people don't care much about police is they don't see the tangible benefit.

    In legal states i think cops should go to urban areas and have "smoke with a cop day" where people can hit a joint or blunt with a cop and have positive community discussion.

    2) If you choose to focus only on negative incidents like these, it can reinforce your pre-existing biases. For example, if someone believes that cops are racist and evil, and then every day, looks for cases of them acting out that way, they ARE GOING to find it, because some of those types of cops will inevitably exist in a country of 300 MILLION people. But the exact same approach could be used to paint a negative picture of ANY GROUP.

    We should distinguish between (1) and (2). (1) is useful, (2) is not.

    To counter (2), one must flip the script. Assume that the group you think of as an enemy is good, and look for examples of good action, instead of only seeking out bad actions. That lends to a more balanced perception.

    This thread is for that - we seek out examples of good community-police interaction, and post them here.
    Is this a feel good thread for LEOs who actually do their job properly, or is this a reminder that citizens should stop complaining about the few bad apples by "flipping the script"?

    Btw, I support ALL LEOs and the issues they deal with daily. But do we really need a thread to "support the troops"?

    Never said anyone should stop complaining. This is just an attempt to balance the anti-cop threads (which will and should continue every time there is an abuse of power).
    When all that says 'it is good' has been debunked, what says 'I want' remains.

    following police protocol is often confused for an abuse of power

    My Childhood was shaped completely different from how it should have been due to the fact a State Police Sergeant took me under his wing at 14. In my 30's now, and just wished him a Happy Father's Day last week. He was the most influential person to help shape me into the adult I am today, and now my own kid's God father.

    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Police officer Jessie Ferreira Cavallo said she was on her way to work Friday afternoon when she saw a boy climb up over a guardrail and jump several feet from an overpass onto concrete below.

    "Everything happened so fast and I think my adrenaline was pumping so high," she said. "He just climbed up and jumped off."

    Loading...


    Ferreira Cavallo, with the Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y., department, said she immediately parked her car on the shoulder, stuffed her pockets with first-aid materials from her car and then jumped after the boy, who she said looked like a young teenager.

    "I wasn't thinking too much," she said. "I just knew, when I looked down and saw him ... he looked dead. I couldn't see anything other than blood. I thought to myself, 'He needs help. I need to help him.'"

    She said another woman, in a military uniform, also stopped to help.

    "Both me and her together, we were able to aid him and assist him," she said.

    The boy was unresponsive, she said, and they put a neck brace and a splint on him, and checked his airway.

    "We were talking to each other like we worked together," she said of the other woman.

    After some time, the boy opened his eyes, but was mostly non-responsive, Ferreira Cavallo said.

    "I was talking," she said. "He wasn't really responding back."

    Police and an ambulance transported the boy to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, N.Y. A call to the hospital was not immediately returned Sunday and the boy's condition was unknown.

    It wasn't until Saturday, she said, that Ferreira Cavallo realized what she had done.

    "Friday, after this whole thing happened, I went to work and worked to 11 p.m.," she said. "I didn't realize what was going on until yesterday. That's when it hit me. I didn't realize how high it was. It seemed doable. It didn't seem that high. I thought I jumped over a brick wall, or a cement barrier. It was so fast. It was more like tunnel vision. I saw the boy and I needed to get to him. I didn't see anything else."

    She was heading to the hospital soon to visit the boy.

    "I really want to know how he is doing," she said. "I don't know anything about him. I don't know his name or anything."

    She said she hoped the hospital lets her see him.

    "I just hope that he's doing well," she said. "I just want to give him a hug."

    This isn't the first time Ferreira Cavallo has saved a life. The 28-year-old officer said she has received about six lifesaving awards in her seven years as a police officer.

    While working as a Mount Vernon officer, she saved an elderly man after a heart attack by using a defibrillator and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and she received several awards in Hastings for administering naloxone in heroin overdoses.

    She has also been recognized for undercover work with the FBI and a county task force.
