Police Officer’s Act of Kindness Goes Viral


An act of kindness of an Atlanta police officer has gone viral on social media after a video of her giving shoes to a barefoot man was posted.

According to the Atlanta Police Department, Officer S. Thomas said she noticed a man walking barefoot out in the rain. When she approached the man and asked if he needed socks and shoes, he replied, “yes.”

That’s when Thomas reportedly ran to get some shoes, but when she returned back, the man was gone. She kept the shoes in her truck in case she happened to see him again, and one day, while working an extra job at the grocery store, that’s when she noticed the man outside.

Officer Thomas went to her car and go the shoes, giving them to the man. According to a Facebook post from the police department, she was “not aware that she was being filmed during her act of kindness. She simply saw a person with a need that she could fill and she did so.”

“We thank the person who filmed this kind act and who took the time to share with others on social media. It is nice when the good deeds of officers can also be shared publicly, whether that was the intent or not.”
