Feel Good Friday | Mystery Cop

CYtjSE_UQAAUVTj

With so much backlash against the boys in blue lately (Not that it isn’t warranted at times.) it’s refreshing to get a feel good story involving one for a change.

So, I’m dedicating this Friday’s post to an unnamed, unlocated NY cop, who helped give a 58-year-old ex-con the lucky break he needed. Bronx res James Roberts was en route to a job interview at LaGuardia Airport when he got off the wrong stop on the bus. Can’t count on two hands how many times I’ve done this. Just sayin.

After getting a heads-up from his staffing agency that his interview was really in Fresh Meadows, a few miles away from the airport, the hero with a badge offered to drop him.

After getting him there on time, he disappeared. Not waiting around to learn James got the job at a car rental company (Granted he was likely on duty.) Thus, ending his 10 year unemployment gap since being released from prison.

“I’m stunned, there isnt a cop doing anything nice for James Roberts, I got chased for 11 years when I was doing bad,” Roberts told ABC 7 News.

Now that he’s doing good he wants to thank those responsible. Like…whatever the cop’s name is.

“I say Andrews is his last name, for sure his tag has an A and D in it, I seen those initials, and that’s what I remember,”  James tells ABC 7.

Let’s hope the good cop remembers too because it’ll be worth his while.

“I love this guy wherever he’s at, I love this guy,  and I have to see him, I have too.”

The search is on.

Feel Good Friday | Three Awww-Worthy Stories

As if we need  a reason to feel good about a Friday. Well, I’ve got three more to make you smile. Starting with a real heart warmer, former NFL player Warrick Dunn celebrated giving away his 145th home to a single-parent family through his charity. And that’s not all. The Tampa Bay running back–who started the org in 1997 (as a rookie) to honor  his late mom–provides food, furniture and other living essentials to combat poverty. Dunn just raised giving goals.

Speaking of giving, a motorcyclist and proven animal lover gave a kitty an extra life after rescuing him from an intersection. The bad ass cyclist stopped traffic and scooped up Skids (his new name) after falling from a moving vehicle. The whole ordeal was captured on the cyclist’s Go Pro camera. Watch the drama play out below.

Now all together now: awwww Oh, and Snitches is doing just fine.

Finally, Two Texas police officers pulled over a dad of three daughters with zero car seats. Before the reckless dad could pull out his wallet, the boys in blue pooled their own money to get the seats. Protect and serve, indeed.
