Douglas GA Police Department Officer praised for helping man in rain, wait till you hear why

A passerby saw a Police Officer helping a man “how to put air in his tires…in the heavy rain” the reason it was noteworthy was in the man’s view because it was a white officer and a black man in Georgia. But he thought the media would never make that much to do about it because it wasn’t racist.

Perhaps it is true that the media is far too quick to post things that are racist or bad about Police and that what are more common occurrences are things like what is being shown here, just two men helping each other. But that wouldn’t be very news worthy would it? Three is not a lot of people paying for advertising that way is there?   Continue reading “Douglas GA Police Department Officer praised for helping man in rain, wait till you hear why”

Barboursville, Wv. Officer gets caught doing good deeds twice, blames it on his upbringing

An officer in Barboursville, Wv. Was interviewed by a reporter after having his good deeds reported by citizens to his department. The Officer said it was nothing more than just how he was raised.

Barboursville, WV.  On two separate occasions Officer Stephen Wilson was caught by persons unknown capturing him on film doing something nice for another person he didn’t have to do.

In the first case he took a frightened 3 year old boy for a cold drink and some fun at an arcade when the child’s mother was being questioned by other officers. He kept the child occupied and distracted so the child would not be afraid.

In the second case he had met a homeless man who he thought was wearing a back brace and inquired why he was wearing one. The man said he wasn’t wearing a back brace, rather what the officer was seeing were the man’s bones, the man lifted his shirt and showed him his hip bones. Officer Wilson took the homeless man immediately across the street to a Wendy’s Restaurant and fed him.

“I don’t like to see people in need. I just wasn’t raised that way,” Wilson told Fox11

This is what was said about the officer by people who witnessed the events and their photos:

I watched this Barboursville Police Officer take this sweet boy into the mall to get a drink while his Mom was being dealt with by other officers. I don’t know if he was thirsty, but I’m sure it made him feel better. Chris Tatum, is this the same officer in the other pics?

Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Hails 10 year old as hero

An Alabama Trooper and A State Attorney General Investigator Witness act of heroism by a 10 year old boy who saved the life of his 70-year-old neighbor he was in the vehicle with.

Ten-year-old Christopher Wheeler was in a vehicle with his 70 year old neighbor Alfred Smith when the elderly man started having a diabetic episode. Christopher recalled: “He got sick and he was swerving across the road, He started getting sweaty and said he needed a piece of candy.”

The vehicle was all over the road and terrifying Christopher, while the operator became more and more listless until he was unable to operate the vehicle that was still traveling dangerously down the roadway.

Special Agent Eric Salvador with the Attorney General’s Office witnessed the vehicles erratic operation and attempted to stop it however the driver would not pull over. “It almost hit the center wall several times,” Salvador said. The vehicle went into oncoming traffic lanes several times.

It was Christopher who eventually brought the situation under control and saved countless lives. “I didn’t want us to die,” Christopher said. “The police were behind us the whole time with their lights on. I told him to stop, and he kept going. I put my foot on the brake, and I got the steering wheel and pulled it over and put it in park.”

Once the vehicle was stopped State Trooper Salvador ordered the operator to place his hands upon the wheel of the vehicle but he didn’t do so. Yet young Christopher placed the ailing man’s hands on the wheel for him. When the State Trooper ordered the vehicles engine to be shut off, Christopher reached over and turned the ignition switch too. None of the movements were beyond the Troopers sight and he understood that there was a problem. The Trooper approached the vehicle and understood he was dealing with a medical emergency.

“When I approached the vehicle, the child told me that he wanted to go home and stepped out of the vehicle,” Salvador said. “He was terrified.”

Salvador went to his patrol vehicle and returned with emergency food he carries and gave the man something to eat to raise his blood sugar levels.

Senior Trooper Lee Walls also responded to the scene to assist in the aftermath. While waiting for Christopher’s parents to pick him up he took Christopher for something to eat because the young boy was hungry.

Paramedics took the 70 year old Smith to the Hospital for treatment.

Troopers praised the 10 year old to 12 WSFA saying: “Without the heroism of that child, I think they would have crashed off the road or into another vehicle. I think he saved a lot of lives out there,” Salvador said. “I’ve been in law enforcement eight years and I’ve never seen anything like this.”

Senior Trooper Lee Walls  said: “He grabbed the steering wheel and began to tug on the steering wheel and reach over with his left leg to apply the brakes. He was probably the main contributing factor to get the car stopped; he was mature beyond his years.”

On their Facebook Page the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency  wrote:

Today around noon, an Investigator with the Attorney General’s Office observed a vehicle weaving excessively on I-65 near exit 181. The Investigator attempted to stop the vehicle which failed to yield. An Alabama State Trooper assisted and the vehicle eventually stopped on AL 14 near Browns Road. The Investigator and Trooper determined that the driver was suffering from a diabetic episode. It was discovered that a 10 year-old child passenger had steered the vehicle to safety and applied the brakes to stop the vehicle. The child’s actions may have saved the driver’s life, his own life and the lives of others on the road at the time. The Trooper gave the driver some food as emergency personnel arrived on scene. The driver was transported to a local hospital. The Trooper took the child, who was hungry, to a local fast food restaurant for a meal as they waited for family members to arrive. Millbrook Police and Fire Rescue assisted with the incident. Great job to all involved!
