In our current 24-hour news cycle, violent encounters and sensational news involving police officers often take center stage. So it’s easy to miss the good work done by these public servants across the nation.
So wen we came across this viral video of Sergeant Erickson of the Elgin Police Department in Elgin, IL talking to a group of teenagers like this, we wanted to share it with you.
The teens were all hanging out in a parking lot, and while they weren’t destroying anything, the store owners felt uneasy and called the police to make sure the kids drove away. When the cops showed up, a few of them reacted as expected: They brought out their smartphone cameras and started recording the action. What they captured has gone viral, and you’ll see why. Watch:
Excellent job! Please SHARE this awesome moment if you think police officers are people and deserve our respect, too!
