It’s easy to see the weeds and miss the flowers. Here’s a good story to counter balance all the bad stories of tasing, bad shootings and asset forfeitures. (h/t to William Grigg).
Bozeman Police Officer Marek Ziegler was called to Van’s IGA last Friday night to check on a shoplifting report…The officer arrested the man, cited him for theft and then released him…But the story didn’t end there…Ziegler had asked the man why he had been stealing.
“He was really upset,” Ziegler said this week. “Basically, he told me he’s having a hard time and can’t provide the food for his family right now, so that’s why he was stealing.”
“I told him, ‘Give me 15 minutes,’ and I went and got him some food.”
