It's nice to see an officer being shown in a positive light.
There are a lot of awesome cops out there who do great things all the time.
We just don't hear much about it.

That's just a good man who happened to be a cop. Way to go, guy!

I once had a police officer give me and my bicycle a ride back to my truck. i was out on a road cycling group ride when I ripped my tire open. I carried my bike a few miles to a convenience store where I saw two cop cars, went in and asked for help. About 20 miles out of his way to my truck, and very kind to boOt.

I'll always have fond memories of that police man.

When I was 16, I locked my keys in my '79 Silverado. I asked a nearby police officer if he had a Slim Jim. He said that there was no need for one and showed me an awesome trick.

He opened the hood (remember when hood latches didn't lock from the inside?) and popped off the wire clip to the Master Cylinder lid. The wire clip was so perfectly shaped that it slipped through the corner of the wing window, and when you twisted it, the bent part of the wire clip lined up exactly with the wing window lock. Then he gave it a twist and opened the wing window. After that, he reached in and unlocked my door.

Took him more time to explain to me what he was doing, than it did actually doing it.
