Boston Cop is Internet Hero for Delivering Milk for Toddler During Lockdown (PHOTO)

Inspired - General

cop delivers milk-smA Reddit user posted this photo taken by his friend who lives in Watertown where families were ordered yesterday to stay indoors during a manhunt for the Marathon bomber suspect.

The family asked if they could go get milk for their 16 month old son. A policeman, working long hours already, went to the store for them and delivered the milk to the house.

The Watertown resident told Reddit user ZanePerry that the cop was very humble and would not want the publicity.

UPDATE: The policeman was later identified as a policeman from the Brookline community who was helping out in Watertown.

But, ZanePerry deciding to post the photo without permission gave the rest of us a chance to feel a happy warmth for the law enforcement community of Boston.

I realize how this event (the "Miracle on the Hudson") had touched people's lives, how ready they were for good news, how much they wanted to feel hopeful again. We've had a worldwide economic downturn, and people are confused, fearful and just so ready for good news. They want to feel reassured that all the things we value, all our ideals, still exist.
