Police officers are often given a bad rap just for doing their job. In the video below, police officer Mark Valenzuela is seen doing something remarkable for a homeless man in Phoenix, Arizona.
The video, captured by a local resident, shows Valenzuela giving a new pair of shoes that he purchased out of his own money to a homeless man. Local Raymond Celaya saw the police officer helping the man and took it upon himself to record the incident. Celaya recorded Valenzuela putting the shoes on the feet of the man and helping him to his feet before driving his police car away.
He clearly went above and beyond the call of duty.
It is so wonderful to see the police being shown in this kind of positive light.
He stopped to help someone less fortunate than himself.
We should be thankful for the police who protect and serve on a daily basis. Thank you, Valenzuela!
