This did make me cry. Thank you so much for posting it. There is so much good in police officers and yet the media always latches on to the bad. Thank you.

Hey Shasta - maybe you are pregnant already! All those hormones make women weepy
Way to go Officer DePrimo..
I'm not sure I see what him being a police officer has to do with the story. I think that I'd rather think of him as a representative of the good that lives in all humanity - to me it's more heartwarming that way.
When I managed a homeless shelter, we were right across from the cop shop. An RCMP officer came over one night and offered a pair of boots to one of our homeless men. On payday, the mounties would all chip in to give us some money for the tobacco fund.....we offered free tobacoo when we had money...I know it is not good stuff but a lot of them smoked and that was their only recreation sorta. They also contributed to the personal items we put in the clients xmas stockings and things like that....sock, mitts, deoderant. Most cops are wonderful people.
