A Breath of Fresh Air

Recommended Posts

In an age where all the news appears to be bad news, it is heartening to see the evidence of this video which shows that most people are good at heart.

 

This was a video of an undercover policeman from the Vancouver Police Department who took on the role of a wheelchair bound mentally handicapped person in an effort to catch a person who had been robbing wheelchair victims but all he received from other people were acts of kindness.

 

Although the robber was not caught the exercise gives us an opportunity to balance out outlook in respect of other people and there are still a lot of good people, no matter what their circumstances are, in this world.

It is not just Canada, here is a story of a black police officer assisting a man who is apparently a neo Nazi in South Carolina - it emphasises that the majority of police officers feel duty bound to try and assist others in need of help and assistance - I can personally vouch for that from my service as a UK police officer.

Sadly it is normally just the bad stories which make the news headlines when good things happen all over the place .

 

News at Ten used to have  an   'And Finally'  section. which reported more light hearted or good news stories at the end of the program .
