A “selfie” of Greg Barnes Jr. Goes viral

September 18,2015 Greg Barnes Jr. posted to his facebook wall of an encounter he had with a Police Officer that has received over 400,000 shares and over half a million “likes”.

Simple straight to the point he describes how he had violated a vehicle and traffic law in his hurry to get home. How he had been stopped and wasn’t angry with the officer for doing his job but rather had some discussion and dialog with him.

The two treated each other with mutual respect which is very often the case that goes unnoticed. However Mr. Barnes made sure that this time it didn’t.

He took a ‘selfie’ with the Officer in the background and posted it to his facebook account along with a post describing the incident and how the two interacted.

He later followed it up with another post thanking everyone for comments and again gives some sage advice that boils down to treating others as we would want to be treated.
