To The Daily Sun,
With all the unjust and outright slanderous press that police officers across this country are receiving, I thought this story noteworthy.
This past Thursday morning (Nov. 5) I observed a Belmont police officer kneeling beside a car on Rte. 106 changing a tire for a young motorist. His cruiser was positioned behind the disabled vehicle with the driver safely off to the side of the busy roadway.
When this officer swore an oath to "protect and serve" he may not have envisioned this particular scenario, but I believe he was fulfilling that oath. Though this act of kindness may not rise to the level of being considered heroic, I'm sure that this young woman believed him to be her hero that morning.
