Men Are Wary Of Approaching Cop, Then Record Him When He Gives A Speech About His Job
When men and women become police officers, they make a vow: They will protect and serve any way they can, keepinglaw-abiding citizens safe and sound and catching the people who cause them harm and distress.
But according to one new Berkeley, MO, cop, being an officer is much more than that.
Officer Robert Howard has only been a cop for three months, but he’s already making an impact on his community, andeven on people all over the country.
He pulled up to a group of young men, including Ronaldo Butler. They were outside ahouse when they saw the officer approach them, and they immediately put their guard up, thinking they were in trouble.
But Howard wasn’t looking to punish them. Quite the contrary: He simply wanted to introduce himself, and to let the residents of the neighborhoodknow that he would “be a friend when needed.”
That’s when Butler pulled out his phone and recorded the officer’s speech about his purpose and his job. The clip wentviral, and many people are commending this officer for his extra effort in getting to know the people who count on him to keep the community safe.
Officer Robert Howard is certainly starting his new career on the right foot.
