After Not Eating for Two Days, Police Come to the Rescue of a Disabled Elderly Man, Buy Him Groceries

We hear constant assertions from social justice warriors and race-hustlers that police are a problem for society. If the media is to be believed, Black Lives Matter morons are fighting against a profession that only attracts the barbarous and the bigoted. What they neglect to mention, however, are the many instances of police officers going above and beyond to help members of their community- like the officers who stocked a disabled man’s pantry because he had his debit card stolen by his caretaker.

A group of Mt. Pleasant police officers are being recognized for going out of their way to help an elderly man over the weekend.

Saturday night, the 79-year-old disabled man called dispatchers and said he had not eaten in two days.

A short time later, a group of officers showed up at his door with several bags full of groceries.

The officers had spent $160 out of their own pockets to make sure the man had enough food in his kitchen to last him a month.

“I think he was shocked at the amount of food that we bought and just the fact that it was there without question,” said Nathan Bolton.

A picture of the officers stocking the man’s cabinets was posted on Facebook and the good deed has been shared by people across the country.

“It’s difficult for us to see as police officers. We’re out here to take care of the public at large and that doesn’t always mean stopping a car. Sometimes it’s us doing little things like this,” said Mark Billions.

The police officers have since been praised for going above and beyond the call of duty.

The elderly man, who asked News 2 not to use his name, said he appreciates everything they did to help him.

The man is on a fixed income and relies on his social security benefits each month.

He said he didn’t have any money to buy food because a former caretaker stole his debit card last weekend.

She was arrested by the Mt. Pleasant Police Department Sunday night and has been identified as Tammy Brooks, 36, of Mt. Pleasant.

Police say they have surveillance video showing her using the stolen debit card at various retailers.

She is charged with theft and fraudulent use of a debit card.

She was booked in the Maury County Jail.

Police are human beings. Like all professions, some are bad, most are good. We should remember to be critical of police policies when the situation arrives, but always remember to respect our men and women in blue! Stories like this are more common than the mainstream media will ever concede.
