Kindness to Police Officers Spreads Across the Internet

You likely won’t hear about this on mainstream media, but it’s been shared across the country on the internet.

A couple having breakfast at a Cracker Barrel in Pell City, Alabama noticed four local officers eating in the table behind them.

Suddenly a “middle aged Black man came over and asked for their tickets and said he was paying for their meals,” posted Garrett Cotton.

“He would take no as an answer from them. He then thanked them for their public service and wished them a safe day on the job.”

Every officer stood up and thanked the man while shaking his hand.

With all the craziness in the world, all the hatred, and all the divisiveness, it’s a good time to practice the art of kindness and love.

This is a good reminder that we can do our part to overcome the deception and evil.

God Bless.


  1. From personal experience I can tell you it is the smallest acts of kindness that can mean so much. While accepting meals can often be a bit awkward for a police officer, just a simple thank you or smile can do wonders.
