A Canadian police observer filmed a Toronto officer, not beating a person senseless or violating his or her rights, but rather committing a courageous act of kindness.
In the video, Toronto Officer Dave Taylor is telling a homeless woman that she needs to leave her current location, but instead of threatening her with arrest, the officer is caught being a genuinely nice guy and giving her money.
The user that sent us the video says the policeman caught on film is actually his father and had this to say:
“I’m sure the person filming was waiting to get a police brutality video to post on YouTube, but instead he got what needs to be seen more. People should not hate the police, there are some good ones. I believe this video should be seen to show exactly that.”
As police officers often get a bad rap for the misdeeds of their more ego maniacal, sexually deviant, profit-driven partners, it is always a breath of fresh air to report on the instances we come across where a cop actually treats a citizen like a fellow human being.
Kudos to Officer Dave Taylor.
