Inmate Confronts the Police Officer Who Arrested Him Years Ago … What Happens Next Is Unbelievable!

Capture

Social media has been abuzz all week as a photo (above) of an inmate saying a prayer for the safety of police officers – with the very officer who put him behind bars nearly a decade ago – has gone viral.

Doc Amey was arrested on a gun charge several years ago by Texas City patrolman Salvador “Sal” Chapa.

Chapa was attending a cookout when Amey approached him, indicating he had become incredibly disturbed by the recent spate of violence against police officers.

So Amey, who has turned his life around since his incarceration thanks to the word of God, asked the officer to say a prayer with him.

The image captured from that exchange has become a social media sensation.

Via The Daily Caller:

Prompted by the slew of attacks on police officers, a former inmate who turned his life around, caused a social media frenzy by praying with the officer who arrested him eight years ago, asking God to protect police from violent criminals.

Texas City patrolman Salvador “Sal” Chapa was attending a barbecue on Saturday when he was approached by Doc Amey, a man he arrested eight years ago for a gun offense. So disturbed by the attacks on police, Amey pulled Chapa to the side of the crowd, where the two joined hands and said a prayer for the officer’s safety, according to ABC13.

Fellow barbecue-goer Kevin Woods was so touched by Amey’s prayer, that he snapped a picture of the pair and shared it on Facebook saying, “We should be seeing more of this in America. There shouldn’t be race involved and this is living proof that color doesn’t matter. This is a prime example. All lives matter ONE NATION UNDER GOD!”

Comment:  Does the American media need to start sharing reports like this more often, and ignoring the attention-seeking #BlackLivesMatter riot stories?
