This Massachusetts boy has been raised to give cops the middle finger whenever he sees them. When a photo of his gesture appeared online, his parents were criticized for the way they taught him to behave.
Here’s a video from Fox 25:
However, Sgt. John Delaney of the Springfield, MA police had this to say:
I would go and rescue that little boy if he was drowning…if he was in a car accident…if he was choking on something…and I would do that and not ask for thanks. And there are 400 other police officers in the city of Springfield that would do the same
Yet another example of a law enforcement officer’s constant commitment to protecting his people no matter how they treat the police.
