We have so many stories online lately of cops doing it wrong… (and I don’t defend bigots with a badge!) But not all cops are like that, and this is an example of a cop who is doing it very, very right.
Sgt. Precious Cornner-Jones saw this little boy fling himself to the ground at a rally. His mom said that was his way of expressing himself lately, and Sgt. Cornner-Jones sympathized with the little guy. So she got onto his level and they had a chat.
It didn’t take long, and the little guy got back up and felt much better. But that moment with a compassionate police officer resonated so much that the picture when viral.
In Sgt. Cornner-Jones’s words: “As an adult sometimes all we want is one person to stop, get on our level and maybe wipe our tears. These children are entitled to bad days just as us, so give them that moment to bring it together. Get on someone’s level today and make them smile!! Spread PEACE and LOVE you might be that person that gives them hope!”
