Hometown Hero – Officer TJ Young – Denver Police Department

A Denver cop is getting high praise after going above and beyond the call of duty for a family.

When Young arrived at the residence, he discovered the argument was between a mother and a father over how they were going to feed their four children and grandfather.

After determining the argument wasn’t criminal, the officer traveled to a local restaurant and bought each of the family members a meal for the night with his own money.

The Denver Police Department’s Facebook page added, “Thanks to Officer Young’s generosity, all went to bed with full bellies.”

A police officer pulls over an old Amish woman drivng her horse and buggy’

“I’m not going to cite you,” said the officer. “I just wanted to warn you that the reflector on the back of your buggy is broken and it could be dangerous.”

“I thank thee,” replied the Amish lady. “I shall have my husband repair it as soon as I return home.”

“Also,” said the officer, “I noticed one of your reins to your horse is wrapped around his testicles. Some people might consider this cruelty to animals so you should have your husband check that too.”

“Again I thank thee. I shall have my husband check this when I get home.”

True to her word, when the Amish lady got home, she told her husband about the broken reflector.

He said he would put a new one on immediately.

“Also,” said the Amish woman, “the policeman said there was something wrong with the emergency brake.”..”

Really?

“Now let me see if I have this right. The family situation is so unstable, ‘Junior’ doesn’t even know where to send a Father’s Day card. There’s no guidance or discipline in the home. Junior gets dumped into the education system where he is socially promoted because the overwhelmed school district can’t deal with the undisciplined whelp. Junior’s major formative influences are ‘gangsta’ rap videos and a corresponding peer group of gangsta wannabes.

At age 18, Junior is turned loose on society carrying a bad attitude, a broken compass and little respect for authority. Junior gets himself in big trouble with the law and meets dire consequences. Then, the situational diagnosis is that the police need more training and understanding?

Pardon me for asking, but do you really believe that bullshit?”

The bigger question is, “What is the answer?”

In her May 5th post Messy Mimi wrote about Pastor M preaching to the homeless and passing out food. Then she had a conversation with a gentleman by the name of Lee. He pointed out that this area was a very generous area. and if I may quote part of her post..

“And that’s the problem. See, people here are too generous. For example, the ones out on the streets who are on drugs. Why should they save what money they get for food when they know that there is food available? Some church or homeless outreach or someone is feeding people every day. They don’t need to save their money for food, they can spend it on their drugs, because they know they won’t go hungry for long. If they went hungry more, they might spend the money on food and be motivated to drop the drugs.

She also went on at the end of her post..

the idea that too much help is crippling people and keeping them down.

Most of the people alive today haven’t have heard of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). If they did I’ll bet they don’t know anything about it. Wikipedia states..

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a public work relief program that operated from 1933 to 1942 in the United States for unemployed, unmarried nen from relief families as part of the New Deal. Originally for young men ages 18–23, it was eventually expanded to young men ages 17–77777777. Robert Fechner was the head of the agency. It was a major part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal that provided unskilled manual labor jobs related to the conservation and development of natural resources in rural lands owned by federal, state and local governments. The CCC was designed to provide jobs for young men, to relieve families who had difficulty finding jobs during the Great Depression in the United States while at the same time implementing a general natural resource conservation program in every state and territory. Maximum enrollment at any one time was 300,000; in nine years 3 million young men participated in the CCC, which provided them with shelter, clothing, and food, together with a small wage of $30 a month ($25 of which had to be sent home to their families).

Why doesn’t the Federal Government do something like this now?
