This police officer is being hailed for his kindness after he received a call from a dollar store about a 12-year-old girl who was caught stealing.
Officer Milton was told by local Family Dollar Store employees in Atlanta, Georgia that a young girl had been apprehended trying to smuggle out $2 shoes.
Instead of punishing her for her misdemeanor, the compassionate cop gave the girl a ride back to her home and met her family.
The mother of the Staples family was a parent to four kids, the youngest of which was a newborn baby. Though her husband held a job, they were still having trouble making ends meet and they couldn’t afford a sitter.
As a means of comforting the family, Officer Milton bought them four pizzas and drinks for dinner.
Though he did not want recognition for his deed, a fellow police officer leaked the story to outside sources. The Atlanta Police Department then made a Facebook post asking for donations for the unfortunate family.
