Florida officer tears up after young boy buys him breakfast as a ‘thank you’

With constant media pressure and extreme scrutiny over United States law enforcement, I can’t imagine what it would be like to be an officer on duty. In the last couple years surrounding vicious police brutality police are now often looked at as the bad guy, but it’s just not the case. The ‘Kill all cops’ movement is disgusting. They are human beings who voluntarily put themselves in harms way to ‘serve and protect’. Just because some officers abuse their power or exceptionally malicious, doesn’t mean we as society should view police officers as the villain.
This little boy in Florida took a step that many of us should follow as he brought a Florida deputy to tears after buying him breakfast. Deputy Donnie Jackson initially smiled and politely declined but the boys’ parents said their son insisted on picking up the tab at Dunkin’ Donuts because of his appreciation for the “thankless job” officers do.

Many of us should stop and think about what it takes to do a job like that, and maybe we’ll be able to muster up a “thank you” or buy a cop of coffee. With humans, a little can go a long way.
