With so much ugly in the world, this video reminds us that there is good as well.
A situation that could have gone REALLY badly REALLY quickly was de-escalated by an officer who showed a man with a weapon compassion:

Full disclosure, the editor of this video got a little weepy watching it. Either that or a ghost is cutting onions in here …
As species Sapiens can develop compassion like no other creature. Can also develop profound hatred. This man chose compassion

there are cops like this in America, their stories just never get shared

SO MUCH THIS. There are thousands of compassionate, kind people who work in law enforcement in the U.S., but it doesn’t get clicks so very rarely does the media report on them.
There is good in this world. We must embrace it and reject evil at the same time. https://t.co/qb6LLLXs9i
