It’s amazing how police officers offer help when we turn to them. There is always something interesting going on within the local communities. The story we are about to share will definitely melt your heart.
A kind police officer from California won people’s hearts all over the world after he offered assistance to a 92-year-old who was thrown out of a local bank of America.
Montebello police department received a phone call about a 92-year-old man who was making a scene at the bank. He could not withdraw his money because his ID expired.
Police officer Robert Josett went to help the staff of the bank after they sought help to deal with the infuriated old man. Robert did not know what he was going to find upon his arrival at the bank.
He could have solved the problem within a short time considering the old man’s age, but what he did instead was something out of this world.
There was quite an uproar as officer Robert was reaching out to the agitated old man. The only thing he wanted was to access his bank account but he was denied access because his ID was obsolete.
The bank could not meet the old man’s demand to withdraw his money because he lacked proper identification. This left the old man dissatisfied as he could not understand what was going on.
After the officer arrived and familiarised with what was going on, he thought of doing something unexpected. He knew he could have just escorted the elderly man outside the bank, but he decided to prove that humanity still exists.
Robert took the 92-year-old man to the Department of Motor and Vehicles and helped him in getting a new license. But he didn’t stop there. The officer helped him withdraw his money before the bank closed.
The Montebello Police Department took it Facebook and posted a photo of the officer and the old man. The photo immediately went viral and it was shared over 38,000 times. Many people all over the world commended the officer’s act of kindness.
“ This Officer is a Saint!” was someone`s comment on the police department`s Facebook post.
“All this Little Grampa wants is to keep his independence. And the officer helped him in a dignified manner. Good Job Officer!”
“We often hear only bad news of officers, we can`t judge everyone the same,” another agreed.
“Officer Robert Josett thank you so much for helping this elderly man, it could have been my father or grandfather. God bless you…and thank you for your service.”
Please share as a tribute to the kindness and compassion of this officer.
