Police officers have one of the toughest jobs on the planet. Every day, they risk their lives to make ours safer. Men and women on the force are subject to scrutiny every day, and increasingly so in today's political climate.
That's why it's always refreshing to see people doing incredibly kind things for those on the force.
Officer Benitez learned first-hand that there are still citizens who respect and appreciate their work. The officer was at his local Denny's eating breakfast, when someone approached him.
“I was there, eating my breakfast, and all of a sudden, I see this little gentleman walking towards me; I was just thinking he was coming down to say ‘hi’,” the officer says. “He hands me the tab, you know, and I look at him and I look up the tab, and I’m like, wait a minute. And I'm like, wait a minute. I put my glasses on and I read it."
When Officer Benitez began to read the note, he was overcome with emotion.
So what did it say?
