Wanna Feel Good? Read This Story About A Manchester Cop Giving a Man a Chance
Wanna Feel Good? Read this.
There is a great report picked up by WMUR about how a Manchester cop helped out a young man in need.
The Young Man Got Emotional
Officer George Morales of the Manchester Police Department saw a young man with a backpack leaving Market Basket on Elm Street in a rush. Officer Morales stopped the man and discovered that he had stolen food, according to WMUR.
Instead of arresting the young man, Officer Morales paid for the food and told the young man to apologize to the store, the news station reported. At which point, the young man was so relieved, he started to cry.
The WMUR report quotes the officer as saying:
It just seemed like he was down, like out of energy, just tired. We're all human..... I felt that this, given the situation, this would have been a good remedy for all that, so that no parties would be at a loss. I didn't want to cause a loss at Market Basket, and I didn't really want to really jam him up for something so minor. Not that it's OK. I explained it to him. What he did was not OK. I didn't feel it warranted the full scope of the repercussions.
Officer Morales hopes that this will make a difference in the young man's life.
Check out this YouTube from CBS Boston:
This isn't the first time that local cops have helped out people in this same circumstance. A Massachusetts cop helped out a woman with small kids just before Christmas.
