All to often we see negative press about our police officers, thought I would share a positive one.

Thanks for the post.

I think a lot of good things are done like this but they don't get the headlines.

It is sad that a simple act of kindness can lead to 2 pages of hateful comments.

What a great and generous person.

Thank you Plano Police Department - it reflects on your members.

A very kind gesture indeed. We have a great PD.

Sidebar - all of us that live here in Plano pass $100 bills around. Stop by, spend some time and money in the area and pick up your $100.

Random acts of kindness is a more practiced thing than promoted. I like it.

We were in Vegas over Thanksgiving. I passed around several $100 bills, funny didn't get any back. Maybe we'll get them back when we visit again in May.

I saw that on Good Morning America earlier this week. GMA did a good job of publicizing the good deed of the officer. The also did one where an officer gave a pair of boots to a homeless man (maybe in NY).

Perhaps you haven't heard - What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. For the moat part anyway.
