Most of us know not all cops are racist. Right? Right. Seems simple enough. Many officers care about the communities they protect, which is something that’s lost on many leftists in recent years. But stories like the one below help remind us all…
After finding out his teenage sister had been killed in a car accident over the weekend, Mark Ross said he wanted to be with his mother as soon as he could… [He and a friend were] speeding through Ohio when the lights flashed behind them.
Ross was in the passenger seat of the car when Trooper J. Davis pulled them over, and the driver had a suspended license and an outstanding warrant… Trooper Davis [arrested] the driver and [had] the car towed, which left Ross stranded in Ohio.
Ross explained what happened next when Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant David Robison arrived…
True to his word, Robison drove Ross more than 100 miles to a Detroit coffee shop where he could meet his cousin. Ross and his family said they are so grateful for Robison’s generosity, and that the sergeant has even promised to attend the funeral.
Here’s the thing, situations like this? Not shocking to those of us who don’t hate all cops. We know the police sometimes go above and beyond. We’ve seen tons of similar stories where police do wonderful, unexpected things (see TURNING THE OTHER CHEEK: What This Cop Did With His Free Arby’s Meal… and HEARTWARMING: Ex-Convict Thanks Cop For Changing His Life).
So what makes this one especially relevant? Let’s point out the obvious: Police pull over two black guys in the middle of the night for speeding. Both have a criminal record. The night ends with… RACISM?! Nay. A cop ends up driving 100 miles to help a complete stranger.
Of course, we know cops can be good people. So why does it matter? It goes against the leftist, BLM narrative that all cops are racist. As Ross himself points out, he doesn’t like police. But this officer? Changed his whole perspective. That’s why these stories are important, because while Black Lives Matter accuses police of racism and shooting unarmed black men… Things like this happen.
By the way, cops being helpful and kind to black people? Pretty common. Which, say, sounds rather uncharacteristic of a supposed “inherently racist system,” don’t you think?
Yeah, that’s because the “inherently racist system” is just another BLM myth. Speaking of which…
