ELDERLY MAN LOSES BAGS ONCE HE SET THEM ON THE GROUND AFTER EXITING BUS, THEN OFFICER DOES THE UNTHINKABLE
A police officer in Florida went to take a report from an elderly man who said his groceries were stolen. The cop then went above and beyond the call of duty.
Saleem Hasan, 74, is mobility impaired. The older man went grocery shopping and bought about a month’s worth of groceries, but then struggled to get off at his bus stop. A woman ran up to him and stole $85 worth of groceries, and the helpless older man could only stand by and watch.
Gainesville Police Department Officer Franklin wanted to help the man. The officer drove Hasan to Publix, took him shopping and replaced all the groceries that were stolen. He then drove Hasan back home.
The GPD posted a photo of the two men on Facebook. “These are the efforts that our officers are doing on a regular basis that show the citizens how much we care,” said the police department, praising Franklin.
