Teen Provides Back Up For Police Officer–Kid Hero!
Just in case you were wondering if there are some great teenagers out there, check out this Facebook post from a police officer just outside of Houston, Texas.
Harris County Deputy Constable Tammi Jones Kelley posted a photo on Facebook this week of her and Mckinley Zollner.
Apparently, Mckinley approached Officer Kelley as she was pumping gas in the rain and asked if it would be all right if he had her back while she finished up.
When she asked him “Why?”
He said simply, “To make sure you stay safe.”
His awesome gesture comes just a week after another deputy was shot execution style while he was pumping gas.
Mckinley simply wanted to keep an eye out.
Officer Kelley was so touched and impressed by the gesture that she made sure to give a huge compliment to Mckinley’s mother who was in a nearby car.
She also snapped a “selfie” with Mckinley and posted it along with the story on Facebook.
That post has now gone viral with more than 200,000 shares!
I sure can see why!
Here’s to Mckinley, Officer Kelley and all the good folks out there looking out for one another.
CNN has more on the story.
