Two anonymous police officers are being hailed for protecting the feet of a young boy and serving up a sweet treat in the process.
According to a Facebook post from the Tukwila Police Department in Washington, two cops were patrolling a local park when they spotted a youngster who was wearing dirty, torn-up socks and sporting a large bloodied cut on his foot.
When asked why he wasn’t wearing shoes, the boy said that his shoes were too small for him to wear.
So while one of the officers kept the boy company, his partner went to the store and bought a new pair of shoes. Not only that, he returned to the park with several ice pops for the three of them to enjoy.
“Because what isn’t better than a cold popsicle on a hot summer day?!” wrote the department on Facebook.
One of the officers was photographed tying up the boy’s shoes while the kid enjoyed his sweet treat.
The compassionate cops were only identified as “Sergeant Modest and Officer Bashful” as a means of “protecting their bashfulness”, but the photo of the policeman and the boy has already garnered tons of praise on social media.
