A Plano Police Officer pulled over a local man for an expired registration. What happened next is completely out of the ordinary as far as police interaction is concerned.
When the officer, who wishes to remain anonymous, asked why the driver’s registration was expired, the driver replied, “because I cannot afford to renew it.”
The cop walked back to his unit, and when he returned he gave the man $100, more than enough to renew his and his wife’s registration.
The fact that this officer wished to remain anonymous speaks volumes. It was no publicity stunt nor a plea for attention. It was genuine kindness.
This type of genuine kindness is truly being wasted enforcing arbitrary laws for victimless crime and collecting revenue for the state.
