Why couldn't I have this cop help me out and I am being attacked and I wish I had some help! Protection! Like Bikers, COPS Big tough bikers that would help me out since I am being gang stalked, bullied, and hated mocked and laughed at in Northern VA and I hate it here nobody cares!

But all police are racists right!!!My personal opinion is police in the United States have a far more difficult job then the police in Canada.Here we respect our police when being stopped,not questioning them and disrespecting them!!By the way you might have 1 police officer shot a year here...There are unfortunately racist white officer's,but there's also black,Hispanic, Asian police officer's that are the same with judging people by color!!!Not all police are bad

that's the cop for medal, not like some cops that first shoot at an unarmed suspect and then ask a questions.

A beautiful story with a great, safe ending. I would wish more police officers would have special training in these kind of situations. I also know, that some times things get out of hand very quick. Is it possible, the police officers could have training added that teaches them to, (1) STOP, (2) Look, (3) Listen.

Funny how whites only say something good about blacks when cops aren't shooting us they always putting on fronts saying how these cops are great but never do they mention shit when it comes to the bad 1s . White people don't celebrate when you see this but stay silent when it's the other way around.

I have 3 kids, all with ASD. There's not a day that goes by that I don't worry for them. As with any child; you have to gain their trust, confidence & acceptance. This officer did what common sense dictated, & also paid attention to what problems this child has. Autistic kids are very strong & strong-willed as well, mine proved that at 2 weeks old. They won't understand a person coming up to them & wrestling them for any reason. This man did an amazing thing: he got to THEIR LEVEL, that's all it takes. I'm a nurse. I didn't know the spectrum. I was never a patient person, thanks to my babies I've learned that & so much more!! Hope & wish that more people understood this disorder, I didn't, I still learn more every day. It took me awhile to bear the news, but we're doing good. One day at a time...

_it went VIRAL_ *has less than a thousand likes*
MrDenaun Porter (24 days ago)
I completely understand why this went viral and I give this man all the respect in the World but these things shouldn't need to go viral. For people wearing a badge this should be an everyday occurrence, if you willingly take the position to Serve & Protect then please do your job that's what the people pay you for!

+Earth Patel 🈷 that depends on where you're located, every race has dumb people who categorize things as a whole based on either hearsay or a personal experience when in reality they're not all the same.
Earth Patel 🈷 (24 days ago)
Its because dumb blacks like to belive that all police officers are bad. This shows that its not true
