Mom Pulled Over for Traffic Stop, and the Officer Goes Beyond Call of Duty

cop buys gifts

As we continue to move toward Christmas Day, finding these angelic stories is our pleasure to do. There is so much promise for this country, even if many Americans don’t realize it yet. So many people are doing good things in light of tragedy, adversity, crime, and political fallout, and while this is happening, they are not getting their due.

In the case of Tennessee State Trooper Tidwell, this beautiful story must be told. Officer Tidwell pulled over a young lady and saw she had minors sitting in the front seat. After listening to the driver’s reason and checking things out, what happened next nobody could have expected.

From Facebook:

“I was pulled over Wed morning by a TN State Trooper. When he came up to the car he asked “Why are the two boys in the back seat not in car seats?” My answer was the two little boys were my foster sons who I had just got the night before. I showed him paper work and explained to him that when I got them they had the clothes they were wearing and that is about it. No carseat, no toys, no coats, and so on. He was very nice to the kids and to me. He asked me for my phone number. I gave it to him. His wife called me and asked about the boys. This morning Officer Tidwell met me in Waverly, him and his wife had purchased gifts for the boys. Not just the two boys in the back seat but, their older brother too.

I can not thank him enough for the kindness he has shown these three boys. I never asked him for anything. He and his wife acted out of the kindness of their hearts. He showed these boys that there are very nice cops out there and I hope he has left a lasting impression on them that cops are good. The boys has been telling everyone that “cops are nice”. He has made their day. You hear way too much negative stuff now days so, here is some good news for you all.”

What beautiful responses about a situation that could have turned out badly.

This officer felt as if he needed to help, and there many angels out there, but not all are like Officer Tidwell. I salute you Officer Tidwell. Thanks for your service.

How many of you thought the officer went above and beyond and should be praised for his actions?
