February 16, 2016 Bibb County, GA. 9 year old Adam Flowers was being bullied by teen age kids because his shoes were very old and worn. They were verbally and physically berating him when his 62 year old grandmother Carolyn Taylor who is raising him saw what was happening right outside their home. There was a girl that was a teenager who had Adam in a headlock and wouldn’t let him go.
Taylor told the girl to let Adam go or she would call the Police and the girl became rude and continued to pick on Adam. Carolyn did in fact call the Sheriff’s Department to put the matter to rest once and for all.
Bibb County Sheriff’s Deputy Trinicholas Carswell responded to the home and spoke with Taylor and then proceeded to the teens home where she told the teens parents that if she harassed Adam again there would be formal charged pressed against the teen. She also said that putting her hands on him as she had done was assault according to what Taylor told The Telegraph in an interview.
The Deputy also took a keen interest in Adam and the shoes that he was wearing asking what size he wore and telling Taylor that she wanted to purchase him a new pair of shoes.
Taylor, told the Deputy what size shoe that Adam wore and the Deputy left but later returned with other Officers and presented Taylor with a new pair of Nike Air Jordans. Adam was delighted and it didn’t take him long to throw out his old running shoes and be very thankful for the new pair he was gifted with.
His grandmother says “he has cleaned them two or three times since he got them. He slept with them at the foot of his bed”
“He saw the shoes and it was just pandemonium after that,” Taylor said. “He was just super excited. … I was just so overwhelmed and surprised and thankful that somebody cared.”
“People give police all kinds of rap, about we come out and, you know, domestic things, and stuff like that and we push people around, but I haven’t met those kind of Police. The ones I have met this weekend. People kind of people I call them (she smiles) they were just super nice, down to earth. They wanted to help with something that they didn’t really have to do.”
“They’re still people doing their job. I want everybody to know these people are compassionate. They’re people with hearts.” “I’m thankful for them. God Bless them.”
