Cops Help Former Criminal screenshot KNTV

Trumaine Daniels had been running away from police all his life, but running toward them for help has turned his whole life around.

Daniels has been in and out of jail since he was 12 years old. He grew up in a family that dealt drugs and was taught police officers are the enemy – but now he calls them “angels.”

Trying to turn his life around, but homeless and desperate to feed his own kids, Daniels found himself at a crossroads. As he sat in his car, thinking about stealing food from a store, he decided to turn to the police instead.

Flagging down police officer Brian Lande outside the Richmond, California Police Department, Daniels broke down in tears explaining his situation.

Lande rallied other officers who dug into their own pockets to pay for groceries and a motel room–and even treated the family to a meal at a restaurant.

The trained construction worker says the help has made him more hopeful of landing a new job.

“They’re my angels in disguise,” he told KNTV News. “They’re like the blessing I’ve been waiting for that I didn’t know was there.”
