How about some love for a good police officer?
Officer Gaetano Acerra
Responded to a call where a 13 year old boy didnt want to live in his home anymore. He found out that the family couldnt afford a bed or much else for the teen.
So he bought him one. A big queen sized one.
He also bought him a Tv and someone donated a Wii, so now they play whenever Officer Gaetano Acerra has a chance
He also plans to get him a dresser, mirror, and a hamper. Among other things he needs but cannot afford.
People. They’re not ALWAYS a bunch of bastards.
The corruption needs to go.
This guy can stay.
Mass produce this guy. There needs to be more of him
Personal Story time:
My dad got a call from an elderly woman who lived on her own, and her AC was broken. She was in her nineties or so, and feeble, in the mid-end of a California summer. It wasn’t really something to dismiss as a random complaint.
He spoke to her for some time, and then went out of his way to install a small air-conditioning unit for her home, and came for other sorts of assistance. Sometimes, just to talk. We found out her son lived too far to assist her. I even went to go visit her, despite my step-mother jeering that she was his “new girlfriend” and other cruel shit.
I wish I was keener on listening. She told a few fantastic stories about how she immigrated from Europe as a young woman, and stories about going to the Italian Opera with her brother.
She passed away a few months after, inevitable I suppose, but I keep memory of that as a reminder that no matter how bad idiot police officers act, there are some who really do care.
