A Police Officer Pulls Over a Woman, But Instead of Giving Her a Ticket, He Gives Some Much-Needed Compassion (VIDEO)

People hate getting tickets and they hate getting pulled over, so it’s easy to forget that they’re there to help us and keep us safe. One police officer showed that cops still have compassion when he gave a mother who had fallen on hard times some desperately-needed help.

Officer Ben Hall of Emmett Township, Michigan, pulled over Alexis DeLorenzo and her five-year-old daughter because DeLorenzo’s daughter was riding without a car seat. In the state of Michigan, children under eight must be fastened into a booster seat while riding in any vehicle.

Hall learned that DeLorenzo’s car was actually repossessed earlier that day along with her daughter’s booster seat, which was inside the vehicle. But instead of writing DeLorenzo a ticket, which he felt would not help the situation, Hall met the family at Wal-Mart and purchased the little girl a booster seat.

Hall said it was the easiest $50 he had ever spent, and rightly pointed out that buying her a booster seat helped her, while writing her a ticket did nothing to fix the situation. We constantly hear negative stories in the media about police, so it’s good to get a reminder of the heroes out there, quietly serving, who rarely get any notice of the good deeds they do every day.
